Hello! We’re working behind the scenes to do the conversion from the old phpBB forum to this new forum. With the new forum the same user accounts for commenting on new comics as you do to post on the forums. We’re using a paid piece of software to do the conversion, and taking every step possible to ensure we can port as much old data as possible. We are also looking at options to port user accounts although in almost all cases a manual password change will be required once we do the import. At any rate, we will keep you posted here throughout the process.
I neglected to mention earlier that anything that is posted here will probably be deleted when we import the old data. We will make every effort to retain what we can, but deletion is a definite possibility of any premigration data on this forum.
