What time does the update begin specifically? In GMT?
Two days before my first anniversary here? Bring it on! But seriously, I'm looking forward to the exciting changes, can't wait to see what happens!
I can't wait!
When you say it's a few months back for those couple days, does that mean with everything, not just posts? For example, if you changed your name within the last month or two, you would have to log on with your old username and password in the time we are waiting?
Woah, it's the anniversary for a a lot of people. I joined exactly a year ago today!
I'm so excited about the upgrade!
Well Techically march 14 was my first aniversary here. Dont ask how XD. If you understand then Cookies!

1: Will All Pictures and Thread Still Exist?
2: Will the Profile background need to be updated?
3: Will we still be able to VM?

Odds that something goes wrong are very low. We've done these database backups dozens of times with no incidents, and we don't expect anything different now. As for a specific time in GMT, a lot of it depends on when we can get all the techs together, so we don't have a great idea of the exact start date. It'll be some time later today, probably within the next 8 hours.
The test forum is a copy of the forum from a few months ago, so you may have an older username/password, and posts will be a few months out of date. The forum we're upgrading is this one (accessed at bmgf.bulbagarden.net), and it will retain all posts up to the moment we shut the forum down for an upgrade. So when it comes back, you'll have your current name, current posts, etc. and nothing will be lost.
Well it's good to know that we won't have to redo anything.
