Well, wasn't that fun?

Unfortunately, I am not able to bring back all of the wonderful threads that were started on the Hoop.la version of Cloudy Nights. Moving each thread is a manual process and there were 25,000 posts made in the two weeks we were there. A few of them weren't even complaints.

If there are any you really need me to retrieve, I wrote a script that can import them on a thread by thread basis. For instance, the ever-present Cosmos thread has been resurrected here, albeit with some formatting issues. So PM me if there is anything you'd likewise like back and I'll see what I can do.


If you liked the Hoop.la site, or even if you didn't and are glad we're back, don't worry. And don't get too comfortable. Hoop.la didn't work out for us for a variety of reasons. But we have some other plans and we're all getting pretty excited about 'em. And just about every user complaint about Hoop.la will be addressed in CN 3.0. More to come soon.

- Greg

One other thing:

I was also able to migrate some user changes back here, specifically username and email address changes. So hopefully your info will match if it had been changed over there.

I know I've said this in other threads Greg but, again, thanks for all the work you, Mike and others are doing.
