What the hell is Legacy? In early January, the NTFS database was irreparably damaged. The threads and users table were no longer accesible. The Legacy forums are our attempt (several of us have taken part in this project) restore what we can of those forums. The threads and users tables were rebuilt using existing data from the posts table up to a state where all the old threads were recovered and placed in one forum. Users were restored, but they can never be used again as they do not contain a valid e-mail address and the passwords were not saved - it would ahve taken far too long to try and get 26000 users worth of data. The users table was rebuilt by taking everyone who had ever posted and re-adding them, as such this came down to around 8000 users. Because there was no threads table, it was not possible to tell in which sections posts were made. So they have all been put into one forum. This forum is now available to the public, but keep in mind that for the time being it will play hell with your current cookie settings and may well log you out of both the osnn site and forums: http://www.osnn.net/forum/legacy/ The next stage of the project is in discussion: We want to reassign all the users who have resigned up to the OSNN forums and were also members of the NTFS forums, so that the legacy forums reflect their new username. Once this is done something very cool will happen! Jelsoft, the makers of these forums, are working on a script to merge two vb3 forums. When this is released, and we are at the stage of legacy mentioned above - we can bring back the old posts into a new forum and over a long period of time, restore them to their original section!!! Users who have not resigned up to OSNN will have their status downed to guest and their posts will reflect this, this also menas that if you have changed your username in any way that you must let me know below (this means at ANY time) or you posts will not be reassigned to you and thus your post count will not be reincreased. There is no time frame to when this stage will take place, but it will obviously not be before Jelsoft have releaed their importer update. One change I have already made on the legacy forums is that "dealer" has now become "perris" to represent his new name here. Lets hope we can do this as it would be ****ing cool. Small note: Do not try signing into the legacy forums, or even registering as it just isn't gonna happen! Thanks.
