!!! The IAD Forums Will Be Moving !!!
« on: December 13, 2014, 01:01:44 pm »
As noted earlier, because of technical problems with the current software, the IAD Forums will be moving to a new home, probably the first week in January.

This is the temporary URL: http://toonscoop.com/forum/Forum.aspx

If you haven't registered there yet, it's best that you do so as soon as possible so there is no confusion once we flip the switch. The conversions are almost done. I just have some small technical issues to deal with and, of course, waiting for the Holidays to be over so I don't disrupt any party threads. And to make sure I have the time to watch it for the first few weeks.

Any problems, please let me know! Thanks!

Will we need to manually move over our threads or will this be done for us?

If you can send me your password to the new board privately, I will do that for you. The ones I'm most concerned about at this point are the filmographies.

Ah, alright. :) I'm actually moving over my filmographies atm, but I'll keep your suggestion in mind.

Sweet! Except for the emoticons the coding is the same, so all you have to do (as I'm sure you've figured out by now) is to hit "modify post" and just do a copy and paste over to the new board.

Nice! I actually did figure this out, but thank you anyway. The Looney Tunes filmography is all moved to the new forum now. :)

I have already made my own new account on the site called LuckyToon. But I have yet to make topics on the site.
I'm not just a fan of classic golden age animation, I'm also a fan of video games, anime, and modern animation (both 2D and CGI animation).

I went ahead and moved in.  I am going to announce the retirement of my "King Delbert" name.  It's outdated.  It goes back to my sophomore year in Jazz Ensemble when everyone called me that.  Nobody calls me that anymore.  I've been meaning to get ride of that name for a long time.   Now's the best time to do so.  From now on you'll see my REAL name, Justin Delbert, and when speaking to me, simply refer to me as Justin or even better Delbert. 

Now will you move the party threads?  I kind of wanted to save what I've written this past Thanksgiving.

I'll work at transferring over the whole Thanksgiving story, if you don't mind. ;) I'll also transcribe this year's Halloween and Christmas threads.

When the transfer occurs, I'll just repost them as archives.

Why did you choose to go by your "real name" on the new site?

You can give it a try. Just remember that the emoticons are coded differently, so they may be a bit screwy. (They use brackets instead of colons.) Also, moving them over is one of the things I haven't gotten around to doing yet.

Well, isn't that where we're all moving???  I'd just figure just go ahead and change it there rather than here where we are finishing up this month.  I think about one more month of using King Delbert will be good and fair enough.  After that, I think the name Delbert will stick out more and I'm kind of tired of using the King name anymore. 
Oh and another thing, the King name was also because I wasn't on social media when I joined GAC.  My whole name is now out there nowadays on Facebook and Twitter, so why not?
