As I announced previously, we are partnering with Tapatalk so the MyFreeForums will continue to exist for many, many years to come.  I am working with Tapatalk to migrate to latest cloud based servers using IBM Softlayer, Microsoft Azure, and Amazon AWS. By moving to cloud based servers, will help provide increased stability and scalability to MyFreeForums.  The migration will start in the next 1-2 months, and other than a few hours of maintenance down time, the transition ti new servers should be completely invisible.  

I would also like to introduce Chris (TTChris), a member of the Tapatalk team that has many years experience as a Forum Admin.  Chris will be monitoring the Support Forum and be available to answer any questions.

Hello everyone,

Thanks for the introduction, myff  

I'm glad to be here, and look forward to getting to know everyone!

I see we have a couple questions already,... keep 'em coming!

SRSEditor: Yes, Tapatalk is coming. I don't have an exact ETA, but it's in the plans.

Geoff,  there is no extra cost to you.

Thanks for the clarification. Is it something we admins should start doing or will it be an automatic process? Is there a deadline?

I'm am not 100% sure yet, but I'll let you know in the next few days. I have a feeling that it will be an automatic process.

Great to hear that MYFF will be sticking around! Will you be staying on as an administrator, or is Tapatalk taking over MYFF completely? Hope it all works out well for you!

Like one or two others, I already set-up the phpBB3 version of my forum but haven't forced the update yet as there are one or two issues, mainly things like the smileys not appearing.

It's described by another user here: http://forum.myfreeforum.org/about23411.html


I'm happy to move my forum over and report any issues and possible solutions here.

Hi James,

If I were you, I'd stay with what I have for a bit, and definitely hold off on upgrades for the time being.
Brave of you to offer though

We are going to start some test migrations to our new platform. If your forum gets test-imported, you will receive an email. Please check out the test version and feel free to give feedback here in this thread.

Also, please note that this is just a test. It will not affect your existing forum, and any posts made on your test version will not sync with your existing forum.

Thanks

It's more than a case of being "brave to offer" - I spent a quite a while setting up the phpBB3 version to mirror our current forum in terms of moderator/sub-moderator rights.

That's very important on our forum.


I'd still like to upgrade to phpBB3 before it's forced on us.
