Regarding the website

Welcome to the new and technically-improved, but (currently) functionally and aesthetically deficient, website and forum!

My efforts to bring over the old forum's content was far more involved and complicated than I had thought. It's database work, and it's what I do for a living so it should have been relatively straightforward. Starting with what I believed would be the simple task of just bringing over everyone's user names took a day of planning and data mapping, and then still didn't work. Moving the actual posts was going to be a complicated task. The differences between the two forums' data versions were far more involved than I thought.

So, the quickest path is simply to start over. In time, a calendar feature beyond a Google calendar widget will be implemented and the site will feel more "Star Wars-y".
