Hello DoMiN8ToR, I’m glad to hear there’s new progress toward the move to Discourse.
That said, I have a few issues to report:
First off, I just tried the site, and unfortunately I can’t seem to login. I’ve tried my user name (in all lowercase, and in with only the first three letters capitalized), and my email address, but it still says my login details are incorrect. I’ve tried using my current password and my old password, but I still can’t get in. Are logins intentionally disabled, or is this a bug?
Second off, I made many attempts at logging in, and Discourse did not attempt to stop me. It might be a good idea to implement some kind of login attempt limit, so that cyber attackers can’t brute force their way into the new site.
Third off, it’s hard to tell what is a forum post and what is a news post. Having news and forum posts separated would be much appreciated.
Above all: keep up the good work, and try to smile as much as possible. I know this is a stressful time for you, but you’ve got to hang in there. Remember, web site migrations don’t last forever. You’ll be done before you know it.
