The old one was broken and awful, and we had it for years. This is the new one that actually works.

So why the old one is still there? People still use it?

So they can go and pull out old posts that are still relevant.

It's extremely difficult because it's two completely different forum software that don't appear to be cross-compatible with each other.

Server merge is same software, same structure, and same data.

Plus the old forum contains 7 years worth of data, and that would just deadweight the new forums. My 24k posts don't need to come over here. :P

Supposedly, the old forums aren't staying up forever, but they're super useful when someone gets some weird error and I need to google what the prior fixes were for it.
