Converting IP.Board 3 Database to phpBB3

Re: [CONVERT] Proboards/Invisionfree/ActiveBoards converters

Hey nneonneo, I'm using your crawler converter to convert from IPBfree to SMF 1.1.5 (the very version it is tested with, according to Instructions.txt) and I'm running into a problem.

Re: [CONVERT] Proboards/Invisionfree/ActiveBoards converters

Thanks for the quick response. I'll try that soon and let you know if it works. Edit: It seems to be working fine now. The odd topic returns an empty topic error, but those are topics that have been deleted at one point or another. ;) Edit again: Using relative timestamps (eg: Yesterday, 2:10pm, 53 ...

Re: CAPTCHA vs skill-testing question

I'm in favor of simple mathematical problems, written in words, as a replacement for CAPTCHAs, because some of the designs for the CAPTCHAs are quite difficult to read even with perfect eyesight. Something like: "Jack has six apples. Jack then gives three of those six apples to Paul. How many apples...

Much more personal too.
I agree. This allows the phpBB team to be something more than just the Invisible Overlords and actually interact with their userbase.

Good job.

Re: The hardest question of all... how do you get new users?

I find that the best way to gather a community is to find something that will appeal to a specific group of users to be targeted.

Re: [CONVERT] Proboards/Invisionfree/ActiveBoards converters

If that doesn't work, PM me the board address; because of local variations among boards, I cannot recommend a general fix for this problem.
