I actually thought about that! It would be a nice compromise compared to what we have currently. 10/10 willing to merge accounts given that they understand that their request will be processed *as soon as they post* and must have everything transferred over that way.

Helpful Hub / Announcement Full MyBB Debrief: A discussion on the switch.
« on: April 14, 2019, 02:06:40 PM »
Morning BoBCats.

Recently we held a poll based on a switch to the next platform. Ultimately as a community we decided MyBB would be a better platform for our future compared to SMF. With that said, let’s review what was said and make a few more clarifications along the way.

Posts
This is one of everyone’s biggest concerns obviously. Thankfully, nothing to worry about. Everything transferred just fine on the test site! When the time comes, we will be double checking for recent missing posts and broken areas on the site.

Accounts
All good! Everyone transfers swell... Except for my account, of course! Admin account transfers are a pain. Guess I’ll have to start at 0 posts again. Oh well! At least everyone else is just fine.

Templates and BBCode
As of right now, staff are unsure on whether templates can be transferred over successfully. There has been plenty of success, but there is one problem that has really delayed this. Right now there are many users not closing their [ div ] code with [ /div ]’ which prevents the program from parsing the template, leaving a coding mess for all to see. Though it’s not the majority, it’s still a problem. Until then, make sure you close your codes! Along with this, instead of using [ center ] PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE use margin: auto;!

Along with this, we do have alternatives. We could completely scrap our current way of coding and switch to an HTML style. This is a lot more complex for beginners. Even so, it definitely does provide a lot more features and even animated templates. Mobile-friendliness is not necessarily specified. Once again, this is not preferred as posts that remain unchanged will be a mess, but do not forget that this is always an option.

Subaccounts
Yes! These will be okay! When the site first goes into development, all accounts will remain independent. Staff, as they work on the site, will start to link accounts as needed. So far there have been no problems with this on the test site.

One thing though... Subaccounts no longer merge. If you want to get rid of subaccounts and put them on your main account, do it now. It’ll be beneficial. Admins CAN merge accounts though, but we advise against it.

Profiles
As of right now, profiles have customizable HTML. This will not be available on our new site unless we can find a solution.

Badges
Badges will transfer over just fine. They will be manually added back onto needed accounts.

Shop System
Just like with badges, this will need to be done manually. These are merely plugins and not features of either platform, meaning that there is no way they could be done automatically during the merge.

Layout and Themes
We’ve got a few choices for everyone to go through. Please take a look at their functionality. If you would also like to take a look at some themes yourself and suggest some, go ahead! Post below and we’ll take a look. Responsiveness (or mobile-friendly) is something that plays a big factor in choosing a theme for us.

Here are three that seem fitting:
- LifeStyle theme - $15 (7.50 with discount) - demo (change theme at bottom)
- Emerald Revamped - free - Demo
- iGame Responsive - $20 - no demo, but uses it... There is also a free version that is not responsive/mobile-friendly.

Please note that listed themes will experience color changes to match the current layout. In no way will they remain their given colors.

How much is the general layout of the site going to change?
Not very much. The only changes will be how profiles and subaccounts are dealt with. Otherwise we expect things to be ultimately very similar depending on the chosen theme.

How long will this take? Release date?
Unsure. I would much rather discuss this thoroughly with everyone instead of forcing out an update.

Thoughts, questions, concerns? We want to hear them.

That's a shame Dove didn't get her proper death, but at least Lion got his!

No problem, dude. It's a nice resource for our newbies.
