there has to be more than can be pruned, 1 post wonders and topics that will never need to be used ever again

But I AM EXCITED!!!!!!! weeee :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool:

Pruning is a bad idea unless it's vitally needed. I've visited forums I haven't logged in on for 5+ years, it's nice knowing they still have my account.

I meant the ones the staff "Know" are useless, The upgrade is going to kill old urls to posts and such as well, so if there are any outside sites linking to old yet useful topics, their links won't work anymore, but bad useless stuff could get cut away

Good Luck! I really cannot wait! Not long now :)

What is theoretically the server has a power failure or something during the upgrade and you was close to finishing? Would you have to start again or would it carry on from where it left off? 2 days to convert :cry: Can't go without Neowin that long!

However long the downtime will be - it's going to be worth the wait. Those who've had the chance to test Atlas will agree.

During the upgrade there's always IRC.

The conversion itself for the forums is going to be around 5-6 hrs maybe, but there are other things they need to do besides that, I doubt it will be 2 days unless something goes wrong

I hope old URLs aren't killed! Upgrading shouldn't destroy the historic topics/posts :s

I agree. Looking forward to the upgrade, and I hope it all goes very smoothly.

I won't do that. The URLs won't change.

Well maybe it is a setting but the urls for topics and such are not the same format they currently look like this

www.neowin.net/forum/forum-6/announcement-2-this-is-an-announcement/

they would get converted I assume

It won't destroy anything, I just meant if there are other sites that have articles or whatnot and have linked back to neowin those links won't work anymore

I just found this from Invision Power Services.

Redirecting 'old style' links

Another concern was that the old style links, for example: index.php?showtopic=10, are still able to access pages. This is necessary so that you do not lose bookmarks or traffic from currently indexed links. You can now choose to redirect with an optional "301 Moved Permanently" header to the new link format. This is transparent to the end user but will help search engines locate the correct copy of your content.

Just to alleviate the confusion. Is the relaunch on the 15th, but it's coming up on the 17th.. right?

Good point. In that case, it would go down on Wednesday ready for the Friday re-launch.
