Just had a chat with Matt.

Plan is to do another migration early next week (Matt is away on business till Sunday) to a test environment.  Then have an active 7d-10d dev/test cycle on the test environment to sort out issues.  Matt wil run and issue list where things get reported and feedback given around fixes.  Fixes will either be done on this environment, after we migrate to PROD or in a next phase (eg ads and shop).  Focus is on getting the forum part migrated, not new functionality ito add-ons.

I will set-up a test group for this before we migrate.  We need active involvement during this 7-10 period to sort out as many issues as possible on test.

Who are available to help, starting say next week Wednesday?

If you are keep to help with testing and bug finding, plse indicate in this thread.  A bit of IT knowledge is beneficial, but not necessary.

This is an opportunity for all the people who bitch and moan about the issues on this version of the forum to put up their hands and do something about it.

Mens fix dit deur aktiewe moderating. Tight moderating in the technical sections, but less so in JouMa.  The idea of JouMa is to talk kak.  Also use the 'report to moderator' button when you feel agrieved

Are you still going to help test?
