Ok so I'm re-doing this OP so its more clear:
As you guys are well aware we have been having server issues for what seems like forever. Things are progressively getting worse, unfortunately.
We will certainly be creating a new website that will be called Onehallyu. The name will not change. We are simply starting a fresh new site, updated with current software and on a better server/host that won't crap out on us everyday.
OneHallyu as we know it now would remain a read-only site, so our memories and history would remain.
People shouldn't pack their things just yet lol. This will be a process. It will probably take us a couple of months, maybe longer.
We will be opening up Tech Admin applications so we can get some helping hands on this.
There is a possibility of retaining much of our current data (posts, threads, for example) but it is not a guarantee.
In regards to OP's, we will have a method laid out for that later.
As for Badges, items, all of that, we will discuss that later.
Hallyu8 died for different reasons. We are not dying, we are migrating.
Our to do list is long. Don't ask us for dates or specifics. I am giving a general time frame of a couple of months, but I really don't know how fast or how slow this will go.
