Forum Overhaul This Week. Go Outside and Play.

By on February 5, 2013 at 12:49 pm

To improve SRK’s overall speed and reliability, we’re moving the forums off our own own servers and onto Vanilla Forums.  The migration will take a few days, so the forums will be going down tonight at 9:00 PM PST.  We expect to bring them back up by Monday, Feb 11th.  

  • Spooby pls! #BibleThump 

  • fgc illuminati pls

  • tiki.92

    A week. Fuck lol 

  • AnhVuDo

    NOOO!!!!! What will I do for the rest of the week while I’m at work?!?!?!?!

    • Awsumpossum12345

  • J.D SRK

     are there any hidden changes in the patch?
    do we need to save avatars and stuff, or it should be exactly the same?

    • inkblotSRK

      Your account and avatar will carry over.

      • Pertho14

         But will I keep my likes? I seem to be pretty popular.

        • Atlanta_is_Boring

          Pertho plz

        • inkblotSRK

          Sorry, you’re fucked.

          • Pertho14

             Yo damn. Why you gotta be so mean?

            Does that mean we’re getting rep back?

          • d3v

            Galaga badges. Because I never had a chance to get any.

  • AvariceX

     No Marvel OTT for a week?!

    Oh well, might as well get some work done.

    • J.D SRK

       no circle jerking for you

  • Looks like I’ll have to actually hit training mode to pass the time.

  • Cype


  • Brad Hanasyk

    Now maybe people will actually play the games instead of bitching about them on forums!

    • Louis Lam

      Nah, fourm monsters are just going to move over to streams for a week.

      • windsagio

        forum monsters hate stream monsters even more than frontpage monsters do

        • Travis Lynn

           What about those of us that are Omni-Monsters?

          • James Reilly

            Hopefully everyone can graduate to at least a Pot Monster or at least a Shirt Monster

    • pootnannies

      it’s still more fun to bitch about them than play them.

  • mozart danno

    Fuck, now I actually have to work at work.

  • sb

    No SRK for a week thats gonna suck

  • I’m expecting a Dislike button when the forums return.

    • Would be sweet to have a reddit type upvote/downvote system.

      • James Reilly

        Things would go horribly wrong if there are people with alt accounts who down vote something to oblivion if they don’t like something

        • Would take a LOT of alt accounts to counter all the other viewers whom might like the post

    • windsagio

      It’s already middle-school enough in the forums without downvotes, thanks.

      • So then we should get rid of likes, too? Liking something can be just as immature as disliking. There’s nothing middle-school about disagreeing with someone.

  • Goodbye likes. ;_;

  • Mr. X

    Xenforo isn’t the problem :/

    • inkblotSRK

      The problem is that xenforo and the front page wordpress blog are hosted on the same infrastructure.

      So we’re offloading the forums, and along the way moving to Vanilla because they offer superior reliability and support than what we can provide managing our own hardware.

  • Jelani-Akin


    Oh hey, what’s this “training mode” thing?  Should I… should I try this?

  • UseProtection

     Does this mean it won’t take an eternity to load the main page?

  • Los Illuminados

    well done SRK.

  • Alex Marrujo

    A reason for people to quit bs’ing and actually play.

    • Johnson Nguyen

      Honestly. Time to change Theory Fighter into Street Fighter (or whatever other game they play).

  • Looks like the off button is broken.

  • so I was supposed to get in contact with a guy regarding casuals in my area and this was the only forum of communication… Any tips Mr. Cannon lol?
