In the coming weeks the site will be undergoing some upgrades. The new software is much more up to date, has a lot of nice new features...

Some things that will change...
When I import the users we will import your current login name. After that you can change it to what ever you want as many people's display name do not match their login name.

That is about the biggest change I see at this point.

One thing I need everyone to do is to go through their pm's and delete any unneeded and old pm's, otherwise they may not get imported as there is too many of them.

From the looks of things so far, it might take a day or 2 to import everything over, so the more that gets cleaned up before the import the faster it will be done.

To chat about the upgrade go to

Looks like avatars will not be imported either... If you want them back them up. They were causing me problems on my test database due to bad links.

Good chance things will get imported tonight. I almost have everything ready to go. I have turned off the ability to register new accounts for the mean time.

When the site is moved if you have the site bookmarked its a good chance you will need to update your book marks for the new site. Please do not do so till after noon tomorrow. If you would like to update your bookmarks make sure they only read http://www.soonet.ca/

Thanks,
Shawn
