    We're converting the Articles in the Preparedness - First Steps area from what this software calls Pages to Threads in the Survival Articles forum. This project is to bring these old (circa 2005) web pages into the forum.

    One thing that we're doing is 'moving' all of the comments below each article into the new thread as posts. To pull this off, I have to post the comment as @melbo and then change the author and date to match the original comment. This may mess with your alerts or new posts notifications since the post is going to originally show as being made by @melbo until I change the author and date.

    It's a lot more work to do it this way but we want to preserve the comments.

    Sorry if we cause any confusion. Please also note that at no time have we 'logged in' as these users to post the comment. We are merely changing the post author through a moderation tool. SM does not have any add-ons or native capabilities to log in as you nor can we read your PMs.

    Here's what we do to redirect old versions of urls to new ones:
    Code:
    # Survivalmonkey root to xenforo pages (now Threads) redirects

    Thanks for the heads up, @melbo. I appreciate the considerable effort taken to migrate the contents and authorship of the old posts/threads to the new format. Maintaining the integrity of the site says much about the management of the site. I note that @Brokor has been moving a lot of older posts to the resources area of the site....and his efforts too are much appreciated. Having a refreshed acquaintance with some very interesting and informative resource threads has been a bonus.
