    I will see if there is an add on to do that. First we need to get the forum stable and we can start doing that type of stuff.

    Glad it's back up, but I have to say I like the old look better. Everything is so bulky. I'll get used to it though.

    From all the reports I have been getting once we get things set up right this software will save us a lot of time. I actually changed software in an attemp to make it easier to not have to close the forum.

    Is anyone else having trouble finding the Buy/Sell/Trade forum?

    Because we just migrated things will work different for a little bit. Being able to see BST worked of a promotion system by posts. Until you log in over hear it does not recognize the posts. A cron job runs that will pick up your post count and move you into the other category.

    Whoops, double post. It gave an error message saying it didn't go through the first time.
    Thanks for the explanation, Jon!

    Is it my ignorance or is the ability to change things about my profile (specifically my non-working avatar) turned off?

    You will be able to change it but not right at this moment. What I am understanding about the nature of the migration your data is moved over here but in a way you don't exist after you log in but things are not fully set until a cron job runs. At the end of the cron job you are made whole.

    I've noticed that most people have an "Empty Pocket" title even if they have many posts. Is this going to remain until the migration is complete or is this another issue?

    See John's post (#55), it is just a software quirk.

    Basically:

    - Data was imported into new forum
    - User info not fully compiled
    - User logs in
    - Forum completes the compiling of user info when the scheduled tasks are run
    - Users posts, info etc will then be correctly attached to the users account

    TL ; DR - Log in, start using the forum & soon it will come right.

    We are getting things sorted out one at a time. Some things are taking a bit longer than others but we are making progress. If you will notice all the other forums that have had migrations they have had issues to. We will get the fixed, at least we didn't lose data.
