I have very limited time on my hands but I would like to try and help if able. Specifically build guides is something I read from time to time and I would like to be able to do so in the future also.
But several things are unclear:
What is the motivation for the migration?
Why is it not done by backup old, import to new forum?
Why is the secrecy needed? (PMs)
Has anyone explored programmatic ways of getting the posts?
1. Already answered above
2. The old forum is not my or Elly's property any longer so we cannot take content from a backup.
3. No secrecy, what we don't want to do is fill someone else's forums with our posts pointing people here. As we used to own it, it would seem wrong. If the users want to tell others then that's fine.
4. I have not looked into this as right now I have been so stretched setting up new stuff both here and on another project which is kind of tied to these forums. More on that shortly.
