While the vote on MyGaming’s new name is still open, regardless of outcome the idea is to migrate MyGaming onto the new forum software we’ve been testing here.
The technical process for this is still not finished. At least the following has to happen before I can execute the transfer/migration (completed tasks are struck through):
Admin access to MyGaming’s hosting services.
Transfer of MyGaming.co.za to me. This is non-blocking, but to do this properly the domain transfer should be done first.
Transfer of additional MyGaming hosting services to me (e.g. Cloudflare).
Test import/export of MyGaming forum posts to Discourse.
Test import/export of MyGaming news posts into new publishing system.
Migration of MyGaming.co.za to new hosting (and, depending on the vote, its new name).
- Migrate the forum.
- Migrate the CMS.
While I thought the first four steps might have been completed by the end of last year, things took longer than expected.
This is a bit of stream of consciousness post, so if there’s something that’s unclear that you are interested in knowing more about, please ask.
