Hey folks, in case you haven't heard, we found a copy of the site from February hidden on a hard drive we had sitting as a spare. Sometime this weekend we'll merge the two sites, which is going to play havoc on some things.

First of all, all the posts, pm's, etc. will be saved, that's an easy thing to do.

The hard part though is matching members with their old accounts, and making things more difficult is that fact some members have changed their names.

So the plan on that is that all the new member accounts made since the crash will be given a pre-fix (i.e. new-crashtd). This will help us ID the two member lists, and then we can merge these accounts, making one cohesive account. To help aid this process, after the site restore is put in place, I'll setup a thread where people can ID and request their two user accounts to become one. It's a PITA, but that's the only way we can do it, given the issues with how the software operates.

One last item, you should back up you PM's just in case this all goes to hell in a hand basket.

The goal is tonight, but need to run a couple tests on doing the transfer. If nothing gets mucked up, it should only be down for 15-30 minutes (the site will just say the forums are closed).
