So apparently there was a story going around that during the wee hours of the morning during the #Screwattack10 Live Stream the crew "announced" that the forums would be "going down indefinitely" sometime during the stream in preparation for the merger.

Well, the stream has come and gone, and obviously were still here, so needless to say there were shenanigans afoot.

Also just to be sure that no one is still counting the seconds til the forums' "impending doom", let me save your breath and tell you to just stop now. (since I know I posted about it elsewhere in the forums, but didn't make it an announcement, as I simply didn't have the time.)

After having heard back DIRECTLY from Big Boss Craig and Community Manager Shaun, I can tell you with 110% certainty the forums will NOT just be shut down, and we WILL be receiving an announcement a decent time before this occurs.

So for the time being; Don't worry, we're still here. Business as usual~

Also to to clear the air & answer a few questions from people as my inbox & skype were being blown up about it, least to the best of my ability.

So when will the Transfer/Merger actually be happening?

I have no idea, there is no official date/timeline that I am aware of. Just be expecting an announcement sometime in the near future!


After the merger will we have to make new accounts, or do we keep our old accounts/blogs?
As far as I know, no. All data should be transferred over and accessible on the new site. That said, if you have anything you are particularly invested in (blogs, other writings, etc) I would highly recommend backing those up someplace safe.


Where are the new/merged forums going to be? Link?
Uh, the plan still far as I know are the already existing Rooster Teeth site/forums (I'm too lazy to provide links, you can google RT yourself~). Should that change I will let you guys know somehow, as much as I can before hand.


That is all for now. Cheers!

Was this actually a thing that they were shutting down immediately? They already announced before that the change over is taking a while.

I didn't even know this rumor was floating around.

Hell, I thought it was business as usual.

Oh well, ignorance is bliss.
