I've bought a domain name, and some new software that will allow all sorts of things people have been asking for -- such as an "ignore/twit" function that allows you to flag a person's messages so you never see them again.

I expect to get it all running in the next week and will let everyone know so we can begin migrating over.

But I have a dilemma: What to do about people's screen names and registrations. I'm working on figuring out how to transfer it all over ... but that may not be possible ... so how do I prevent people from "claim jumping" -- from a long-time troll from swiping the name of a long-time contributor ...

Haven't figured that one out yet. Hopefully, I'll figure out a way to transfer the member registrations.

Thanks Ed! Sounds great! I don't think anyone will be rushing to steal my name.

Ed,

How about you setup the registrations with temporary passwords, and send us the passwords by private messages?

ed, would it be possible for you to copy and transfer the IP addresses from one to the other thereby eliminating claim jumping?

Hey Knife

Since Todd's wager with ToC was the loser had to leave the site for 1 year (or post under a new name) does the switch to the new domain null the deal? Can we see the return of Todd without penalty?

Because you seem to be settling down. Still a bit on the fence though .

Ed,

I will be leaving Europe so the IP thing will not work for me, not too mention the original email I signed up with years ago will be wiped out in 15 days. I am hoping if you switch over that no one would take my screen name.
