Title: [ANN] NxtForum closed for Maintenance and Migration on September 2nd
Post by: VanBreuk on August 26, 2018, 10:08:52 pm
The next Sunday, September 2nd, this forum will be closed for maintenance and migration tasks to a new host and content structure. NxtForum, along with the new ArdorForum site, are expected to go online again during the evening of September 3rd.

As many have pointed out during the last months, and principally due to the adoption of Slack and other new channels, the activity in NxtForum has decreased a lot. However, a forum structure still can offer useful tools for the community, most specially as the Ardor platform consolidates and includes more projects and developments. NxtForum, and also ArdorForum, will continue to provide persistent information, full historical reference, boards for official software releases and organized sections for projects, child chains and discussions that benefit from features that slack cannot offer.

Some important things about this new forum stage:

- ArdorForum and NxtForum will share the same user base. This means that everyone who owns an account in NxtForum will have automatically access to ArdorForum using the same username and password. Conversely, anyone who registers a new account in ArdorForum will also have access to NxtForum.
- User information like private messages, post count, profile details and category will be shared in both forums.
- ArdorForum and NxtForum will have different main indexes and categories. Some forum sections, for instance the offtopic area, will be shared.
- All the topics specific to the Ardor platform currently in NxtForum will be moved to their own category in ArdorForum.

After the migration next week there will still be of course work to do finishing layout and board organization in the new Ardor forum. As usual we'll be open for new ideas, sections or features in this new tool for Ardor discussions and information. We hope to see you there.

Kind regards,

The Ardor & Nxt community Group

I think you asked the same question in Slack and Elizabeth replied. We're not closing NxtForum, where do you see that?

The forum will be placed on maintenance for a little, the database will be migrated to a new server, and it will reopen as two forums instead of one. NxtForum and ArdorForum.
