The first preseason game is September 28th.  Will I be making a game thread on this forum or on a new one?  Inquiring minds want to know.  :)

>Official launch is Friday the 21st in the afternoon

We start up this Friday so you will have to do it at the new site.

I'll probably have to start making the game thread right away since I'm such a dinosaur when it comes to technology just in case I run into problems and have to ask somebody how to do something :)   I can't wait!

Not that I'm hoping for it but I'd be very curious what kind of traffic hit CetlicsBlog takes with the forums moving...

Hopefully most of the current format will carry over. I'm excited to see what will change (if anything) as far as commenting on game threads goes
I'm bitter.

I don't post much since the multi-year rebuild is basically complete but I value the forums very highly and there will be future big issues like Kyrie and Horford when I might want to post. You probably  know this already, but as a revenue source you might be able to get an Amazon banner that would give you a small percentage of every Amazon purchase made by someone who hits the banner. i post quite a bit on pokerfraudalert.com, a non-profit site, and it seems to help him with the cost of running the site. Good luck and thanks to those who are working to get us a new site.

FLC, it is great to hear you will keep up the rich and wonderful tradition of game threads. it would be not nearly as much fun to watch the games without your great threads.

see you on the other side....and one more tp.  ;D
I believe Gandhi is the only person who knew about real democracy not democracy as the right to go and buy what you want, but democracy as the responsibility to be accountable to everyone around you. Democracy begins with freedom from hunger, freedom from unemployment, freedom from fear, and freedom from hatred.

We could advertise it on the relevant sites like the Celtics sub on reddit, /r/nba, nba related servers on discord, CelticsHub. Maybe a kind hearted Celtics journalist could make a reference on twitter. In any case, I'm optimistic.

iirc byennie said they will try to have one.

afaik all reasonable concerns (maintaining log ins, posts, TPs, post counts, passwords etc) have all been addressed some time ago, the idea being they'll do everything possible to run things smoothly.  We ll be fine.

It was more about the casual users that haven't noticed there's been a change =)

Maybe admins can also send a blast email to registered emails?

Anyways, hope people find the new forum just fine.

Confirmed there will be a redirect. Should be hard not to find, even by accident. Regarding emails, we may clean up the list and create a periodic newsletter but that's out a few weeks likely.

Process will start in a few mins where you'll see a maintenance message for a bit before it returns.
