I was just wondering what will happen to all the bookmarks that people have made and all the pages that search engines have indexed. Will that all be gone. What I mean to say is that will the URLs for the forum threads change or will they remain same??
Private messages will not be moved, so save any private messages now that you would like to keep for your grandchildren. You can continue your private messaging after the move to the new forum software.
We are very busy right now! You know the feeling. Please, please wait with any questions, comments, etc. about this new thing until this new thing is here. We'll be giving you lots more information on January 3rd, we promise.
Sorry for asking the question even after you told not to ask any question. I was just reading about SEO and remembered that javaranch is also going to migrate. So I thought if the URLs change, then you'll loose all the search engine rankings. That is why I thought it would be good to remind you if you might have overlooked this fact. I know that you people are way way more experienced than me but I thought that you might have forgotten about this.
Anyways I know there must be a solution to the problems like using redirection etc and you must have thought about that already...
I'm going to lock this thread so there isn't further discussion. So far there has been exactly one question that needed to be asked before January 3rd. That question was "how do I save my private messages" and was answered on page one.
