Sorry to write it but there is a delay

There was an update that did not play nice with our ability to import the data. The Go-Live has been pushed back a couple of days while Mmuyskens, BirdMachine, tekniklr and other kind tech souls to lend a hand to figure out the best fix. If you want to help, jump into the #website Slack channel. More updates as we make progress.

New Website Go-Live is TBD
We are switching to new forums software which has a different look and a (finally!) mobile friendly platform. The threads on this site will be locked down and then the migration will take place. Once complete we will flip over to the new site and everyone can settle in.

All user accounts will be migrated over, however each user will need to:
* Do a password reset to set their password on the new system
* Upload an avatar picture if they want one (we aren’t able to bring them over) 
The wiki content will be moved over to a basic wiki. The community can then clean it up and make use of real wiki formatting. 

But we aren't stopping with this release, upcoming features (2017-2018):
* QA site (Stack Overflow style) * Project boards * Groups pages * Resources list

A big thanks to Bird and Mmuyskens, their skills and generous donation of time and materials is what has made this happen. 

Thanks also to everyone who contributed, tested and pitched in to keep things moving, including Meanderpaul, BoboTheEpic, Zwytechhacker, JohnDoe, Jupiter, TheGreyKnight, Alex, Jack, rpyka, TimmyCNinja, and AmosKamal. (I apologize if I missed anyone)
