We made it to the other side.

Enormous thanks to Jeff Clark, SbNation and VOX Media for coordinating with me to make this all possible.

Bottomless TPs to everyone who has contributed real $$ so that we can have some funds behind it.

Huge shout out to all our mods that make this forum run on the human side.

Please use this thread to report any issues you are seeing with the new site, but generally it should be business as usual. I'll try to address anything major ASAP, and over the next days/weeks continue with fixes and enhancements to things like YouTube, avatars, attachments, etc.

Email notifications should work again already =).

Awesome, Byennie.  We all owe you a huge debt of gratitude for making this transition happen.

I'm looking forward to helping with the new site.

TP to Byennie for all of the hard work. Seems fine so far, and as long as the community stays strong, this website should be around for a long time.

Cheers.

Thanks for the hard work fellas. byennie you are the man!

Just curious as to what happens to the SB Nation Celtics website that was Celticsblog.com?
"I bomb atomically, Socrates' philosophies and hypotheses
Can't define how I be dropping these mockeries."

Is the glass half-full or half-empty?
It's based on your perspective, quite simply

This really looks like an exact replica.  Has anything on the user end changed?

A couple of things I tested:

TPs stil limited to 1 per hour (for non-mods), was kinda hoping that slipped through the cracks.  I was going to go on a TP rampage!

Still can't embed YouTube videos (not complaining)

After 18 months with their Bigs, the Littles were: 46% less likely to use illegal drugs, 27% less likely to use alcohol, 52% less likely to skip school, 37% less likely to skip a class

I believe for now the old site was pretty much copied over to the new site.

Over the coming weeks, byennie will be fixing some of our broken features, and adding enhancements.

I'm curious how many casual users will even notice that there's been a change.

Out of curiosity other than the SBNation stuff being gone and obviously the name change, what has changed?
