We decided to make the move to the new forum because of the growing size of the Besiege community, there were serious limitations to the old forum in terms of customisation & storage, we want to make sure we have a good foundation for the community as we move forward!
The new forum will also serve any future games of Spiderling Studios as well as containing development, update & community blogs. (This will replace our tumbler, which we will no longer update)
Unfortunately we will not be able to transfer our current database across to the new forum, for this we are profoundly sorry and I assure you this will be the one and only time that this happens. This will mean you need to sign up again and manually transfer any content across from the old forum to the new one, any content that you want to keep.
The old forum will stay up for another week to allow users to transfer their content across. If there is any content left that is important to the community (guides/tutorials/etc) at the end of the week I will manually move it across, I just wanted to allow people the time to move it themselves so that they can continue to edit it on the new forums.
The new forum isn't 100% perfect yet, but I wanted to get everyone moved over ASAP to prevent further loss of content.
Anyway, I hope you like it & we're sorry about the inconvenience!
PS: Modders permissions on the new forum haven't been set up yet, but it will work the same way it did on the old forum.
