Like the topic says, the forum will be undergoing a change in format. Apparently nobody will have to reregister and nothing will be lost. I may just trigger this myself when I have some time to really sink my teeth into it.

Just an FYI.

Well that's all fine and good. I got scared and thought this was going to be about shutting it down.

You might want to jump to another fourm type. MY wife had this happen to her. Tapatalk ended up basically turning the site into one big archive rather than an interactive forum. We were unable to do anything. I swung by to tell you but...you at least found out before it happened. She lost all her graphics and everything.

It's a little late, but why don't we just start up a discord?

Sorry for the short statement, but I honestly don't have much to say.

I like the forum setup we already have better. In every way. It's more organized, you can post more and you can see it and everything is organised by topic instead of a chat like window.

Plus, all the team members are on the forum. So it's needless.

And now it's converted.

yaaaaaaaaaaaaay. A conversion happened that I had no choice in.

Oh, well. At least nobody has to make a new account and no information was lost.

First impressions are fine for me. Just need to get used to where everything is now. I'm glad the conversion worked out, though.

At some point I have to go through the board with a bit more detail. There are quite a few places where I need to adjust the CSS (liek the buttons).

For the immideate moment it's fine, but they made things a LOT more complicated than they really needed to be.

There seem to be a few things here and there that aren't quite working properly, last time I checked. The user verification for changing your password isn't working for me, and when I was updating my profile, I had to get rid of my previous member title and default to my rank name in order to update anything because apparently the system now won't accept any user-input name with more than 1 character. Which I'm sure isn't right.

No huge complaints, but I just wanted to mention that.

Well, it's a Zetaboard now, not Invisionfree. Is it still bugged out?

My PC had a few issues so I can't focus on fixing things with the board juuuuuust yet. There's not much I can do to fix problems, unfortunately.

So, about that... Get ready for yet another migration.

http://support.zathyus.com/topic/7021172/1/
wrote: ZetaBoards has been working with Tapatalk to create a free forum hosting platform that is a worthy upgrade for ZetaBoards.

As a result, ZetaBoards will begin an upgrade process to move all of its communities to Tapatalk’s platform.

Some of the benefits of the new platform include:
- Revenue Sharing of advertising revenue
- Full mobile support including native iOS/Android App, a responsive mobile theme as well as AMP support out of the box.
- The option to accept donations for your forum
- The option to Premium memberships to access designated forums
- Single Sign-on support for multi forums.
- Robust GDPR support for European Union visitors.
- Enhanced spam detection and removal.

We have been working on a major series of updates to ZetaBoards. These upgrades will now be happening on the Tapatalk forum platform. The development resources that Tapatalk can provide to the platform means more feature updates, more feature testing, and more frequent updates. And we will be adding some ZetaBoards features and functionality to Tapatalk in the coming weeks.

We want the upgrade to be as smooth as possible for all ZetaBoards' communities. If you have a specific concern or question we would be happy to answer it.

Live previews of ZetaBoards forums’ on Tapatalk’s platform will be made available soon for testing the migration process.

-Brandon Kopetzky
So, I hope you enjoyed Zetaboards while it lasted because this is somehow a thing now. The replacement better be actually good because Tapatalk is flat out garbage from my experience. And honestly, I don't get the point of another migration so soon. It hasn't even been a year yet. This just kind of complicate things.

There's several old forums I have that are still stuck on invisionfree and I have no idea if they're gonna be left out entirely or not.

Dang, that's annoying. Yeah, what was the point of converting to Zeta as an option? Geez.

I think those Invisionfree forums might just be left out permenantly. But who knows?

I like forums better because it's more organized than Discord. AIM and Messenger are good as far as they go, but they just aren't the end-all and be-all.

Yeah, I don't agree with the idea of Discord replacing forums. They both have their own merits.

I've only replaced the 7M forums with Discord because its sole purpose was just organizing and creating things between team members. But for a community that's public, discord should be secondary.

Condolences.

So far I haven't seen anything relating to this board being converted. Was there any warning?

Oh good. This is just as spontaneous and bizarre to you as it is to me.  At least I'm not the only one lost and confused.  Not the least of which, all the boards that have been dead since 2008.

I think we've kept things juuuuuuuust active enough for Tapatalk to notice us, especially in the private forum.

It's not great. Do we have much control to customize this?
