I have some questions about the conversion, just some things i don't get.

Why topics with id 2 to 6002 ?!? While i have only 1512 topics on my forum

I guess this is just a summary of the speed at wich the database is filling, about 500 rows insterted per second.

But why it ends at 84k, while i have about 109k posts?!?

just wondering ;)

Looks like I'll be waiting a little bit to try this one out.

where is graham?

Post by code reader »

i have no intention to stir any mud, and if this question is sensitive, or politically incorrect, just delete it or edit it into oblivion.
this is pure curiosity:
for a long time it was clear that the v2 -> v3 converter is the responsibility of graham, who also appeared to be its main developer.
now i don't see any trace of him in the commits, the discussions, and the bug-reports assignments. what happened?
i know that exposing the inner working of the dev team is unusual, but i, for one, would appreciate a glance into the question of "who does what". of course, if there is any reason not to let us know whats going on, there is little we can do about it.

so devs, if there is no state secret involved, please tell us: what's up with graham? is he still on the team? why isn't he seemed to be involved with the converter any more? and if he is really out of the picture, who takes his place as far as the converter is concerned?
thanks.

Real life is what is happening. Project from the company that does actually pay him for working has him unavailable to phpBB for the time being.

hope they pay him well and he is happy.
is it a temporary thing, or is he off phpbb development for the foreseeable future?
who is the main person responsible for the converter now?
thanks.

Ashe wrote the 2.0.x convertor and i adapted it to 3.0.x and wrote the phpBB 2.0.x conversion. Graham then was assigned to do the remaining convertor tasks, writing convertors for other forum solutions, fixing bugs, extending the inner workings, etc.

So, i think all developers are able to work on every section of the software...

Hi!

I had the language errors too while converting (local WAMP from apachefriends.org, MySQL 5.0.21; PHP 4.4.2). And of course I "lost" the subforums (had Simple subforums installed). But after reassigning the forums to the desired parent it seems to work fine. Stats are the same except for Number of posts: in the old forum there are 1523 posts, B5-dev reports 1527.

EDIT: phpMyAdmin reports 1527 for both _posts tables?!

Greets,

That hit home... I completely understand that situation. I've lived it for the past 4 months.

phpMyAdmin does not seem to count the rows correctly every time. :P
(I noticed it quite a bit with the forum I converted...which had a little more than 85,000 posts)
