Not again, whats the point in taking the forums completely offline.

The point is the forums are unable to run while the database tables are being converted, there's just no way around that.

Can you not run a temp forum for those that dont want to sit and wait however long it is gonna take, 6 hours is a bit optimistic.

What's the point of a temporary forum? All posts will eventually vanish after the upgrade is complete.

If you want to hold discussions during those six hours the IRC chat room is good enough.

Yes we're starting fresh by backing up this current DB instead of using last weeks. It's not worth losing new members and posts for the sake of 6 hours.

how about you get a life for 6 hours? It's better than whine about "OMG can't live without forum for 6 hours"?

anyway good luck on upgrade :)

+1

Impatience is pointless in this case, the Neowin experience will be a lot better for the upgrade and as far as I am concerned if there are people that can't wait, then it is TS. I say let the devs do their job and everyone can just wait.

When all said and done, this whole saga is going to make an excellent blog post or podcast. I'm sure there are many here who'd love to know the ins and outs of everything that has happened, plus it would be a good reference for anybody else in a similar situation.

Good luck with the upgrade.
