I’m at the very beginning of a process to convert this forum to a new piece of software that is much more up to date and user friendly.
However, it’s so new that there exists no automatic way to do this, so I will have to write a script to grab the information from this forum and transfer it to the new one. If you’d like to help with this, please make yourself known
In case you’re curious, the software Twizyowners will use in the future is Discourse (http://www.discourse.org/). For those in the know, it’s a Rails backend with an Ember.js frontend.
Therefore, I’d like to just get some feedback from you guys on a. What you think of the new software by clicking the link above and trying it out (bear in mind that that is a base version and I can completely customise it to our needs as a community) and b. what parts of this forum are most important for me to transfer over for you as an individual.
Obviously I’ll be moving all user accounts, topics and posts over, but is there any part of this forum that you’d hate to lose? I can’t make any promises but I’ll do my best to keep everything intact when I finally make the move.
