SRK Forums *NOT* closing down at the end of January 2018


#573

Yo @Ranma save that work on an external and lock it in a safe. Might need it in a few years.


#574

By the way how many times has SRK moved onto a new platform? I’m only aware of switching from some old ass forum system onto Vanilla Forums (and AFAIK it didn’t happen all that long ago)


#575

vbulletin =vbulletin crash=> vbulletin ==> xenforo ==> vanilla =?=> discourse , iirc

Somewhere in there a lot of old accounts got purged and killed a ton of old legendary threads. :sad:

  • added in server crash

#576

Yeah I lost like 5000 posts lol


#577

i’m gonna go out on a limb and guess that the same people who thought 2k a month to host a forum were the same people that didn’t backup the old data…???


#578

Damn what a roller coaster. Glad to see SRK stayin alive


#579

When they switched to vanilla and got rid of premium I lost over 15k posts.

I shitposted hard for those Galaga ships god dammit.


#580

Preppy be strong my brother, just purge all the unjust from here, starting with mcribs.


#581

I’m actually laughing at the dumbfucks who decided to YOLO show their true selves and will spend their time on Discourse banned. :coffee:


#582

I was wondering what all this Vanilla talk was about because I thought we used Vbulletin. Then I checked last night for the first time in years. When and why did we start using Vanilla? I’ve heard of other types of forums but not Vanilla. I would’ve thought the second best choice would be phpbb or some other well-known community forum software.


#583

In a month you’ll wish we were using Vanilla


#584

What’s up with discourse? Is there some issue with it? I honestly don’t know anything about forum software. :confused:

I was out all day and just heard the SRK forums will remain.


#585

I don’t care what we use so long as it’s something.


#586

If discourse ain’t got animated avs Imma stick to my discord and hope I can get more than 5 ppl in it.


#587

Just make sure to port over our imaginary totally real points


#588

Now my shoryuken.org is useless! :mad:


#589

Do you happen to know each of those changes by the years? … i lost so many posts each change i had close to 10k :frowning:


#590

Naw, I’d have to do the same research anybody else would need to as I don’t remember off the top of my head.


#591

We’re still on “Vanilla Forums”


#592

Yeah Soviet Republicks Kountry still runs on
