RE: Articles Forum - Migrate or Link?
Sure, authors should feel free to create updated articles as needed in the new forum.

There was no auto-migration because there was no software for it, because there is no guarantee of people using the same account names, because the one-way hashes used to encrypt passwords in the two forums are different etc.

In addition to all that, some of the articles were emailed to me in various states and "hacked" into the articles forum such that they don't look exactly like a "native" posting anyway. (ie they contain html formatting that doesn't directly map to any old forum formatting code, and may not map to any new forum formatting code.)

However, any author can delete their old article if obsolete using their old account and post the update to the new forum with the new account. I won't be accepting emails to hack into this forum because I now know what problems that causes in the long run.
