Some things that we know right now, though:
- Unless something goes horribly wrong, none of the posts on the forum should go anywhere. So any existing games, homebrew, threads, and discussions should be fine.
- Tapatalk does not appear to have a Shoutbox or a Portal. So those features may be going away entirely, unfortunately.
- Tapatalk is providing support for forums with custom CSS and other features. The exact nature and form of this is still being worked on, so we aren't 100% clear on what it will look like in its final form. This means the forums will look very different (and very generic) once the changeover happens, and we'll start making it more like the home we're used to.
- Because the blog is a separate website basically, it should be totally unaffected by this change.
It bears repeating that, when this changeover happens, the forums are going to look different for a while. We'll be working to get them more personalized and Pokemon-ified again, but they'll likely always look a little bit different from today.
We'll try to keep you all appraised of the situation, and let you know of details as we learn them. But we didn't want anyone to get caught off-guard in case the transition happened suddenly.
Please feel free to ask any questions or voice any concerns. We don't have all the answers, but we're going to work to keep this community together.
