I see that the other forum has been running for some time now. Are you going to be able to merge the two smf forums? Are the existing user accounts here going to transfer over to the new forum or do we all have to start over and register again on the new forum?
This forum will be merged in as a subforum according to Randy.
To my knowledge if you have a current membership here, it will transfer. You can go in ahead of the transfer and create a membership, or you can wait.
Randy knows far more of the particular details of the merger than I do. He's been handling the code and server ends of things. I've been handling memberships, building boards and subforums, and very basic things like answering questions.
I do highly suggest going over there and kicking the tires and taking it for a test drive before the merger is final. This way if there are any weird quirks, or flukes of nature we can get them ironed out ahead of time.
