Well, I did the migration of all the post data finally. I simply made all the posts be made by named guests, it was the easiest way and I don't think anyone will mind. I wouldn't have to able to restore the accounts completely anyway, since the way the passwords are hashed is different.

I still have some things to do here, but it's basically all set up how I want it now. My todo list so far is:
  • Make sure the archives are working properly
  • Update some of the graphics
  • Make the quick reply box look more like it did on the old forums
  • Remove the stupid [-] and [+] stuff for expanding and collapsing things

Let me know if there's anything else I should change.

The the user's point of view, it won't be a whole lot better.

But for the administrator, doing anything was painful. To remove spam users for example, I had to go through 3 logins to get to phpMyAdmin so that I could write a query to prune out the users. And we got a lot of spam members on that forum.

There are a couple annoying things, sure, but once you get past that, you'll realize that there won't ever be an improperly formed link again, and you'll actually be able to succeed when you embed videos.

In the short term, yeah. But my decision to leave cheesy forums was for long term reasons.

I'll put the old forums back if someone else steps up to administrate and maintain it. Including things like performing occasional backups and providing support to users who can't figure it out.

Yeah, that's why I made cheesy forum in the first place. All other forums have some weird issues. But sometimes it's time to move on, and the rest of the web evolved while cheesy forum rotted. It's like that old shirt that fits so comfortably but yet every day gets worn out more and more and one day won't be wearable anymore. We just need to find that next comfy shirt.

heh, they're pretty bad smiley faces.

A cheesy forums 2.0 is definitely possible. Like I said, the old ones weren't worth upgrading, but starting over is possible... it would just a really long process to get it to the state I'd like.
