be pretty difficult to get the pms from the old site as:

1. Different DB Structure, and it would have to be scripted to get put in.

2. Even more trickier is that the user_ids have all changed... would take ages to find the user_id for "x" on the new forum... and "x" might not even be registered!

So I wouldn't go with that idea, start from scratch I say.

p.s. Don't ask me who "x" is cos I made him up :)

Wega .........all the links to "themgzr.co.uk"...now point to here ......it was only a problem during the transfer of the actual name.........if anybody types in the site name it will automatically be directed to here !!!

yeah alot of the "members" on the last site didnt make one post.... so they may return, but that may be ages away as they arent really interested.

Also some of those would have been corsa,paxo,nova boys/gals who may have wanted to fool around. Hopefully those [email protected] wont return!.. unless they werent considering fooling around then they are more than welcome :)

I'm OK with anything like that but would feel a little uncomfotable iwth "Gold member" writtewne under my name :eek:hwell:

Just 2 points - aren't diamonds more expensive than platinum ? And if the posting rockets like last time what are you going to call the next levels ?

Sounds ok I guess, at the end of the day If your a person who gets a kick out of a bit of 'rank' or whatever you call it then crack on.
For instance I only get to come on here on a weekend when Im home and It took me months to get senior poster before, I hope people dont change the way they think just because they have a few stars next to there name, everyone is the same on here because we all have that fooking great ZED!

P.S Congratulations to all the new site admins and moderators.

Ohh my first post!!

I personally don't think you should have ranks - after all they shouldn't matter! I would prefer to have a customisable title under my user name - but that's just me! Whatever the rest of you want is good enough for me!
