If you've been paying attention to odili's twitter then you've noticed that we plan to do a "migration." We've sat on our broken database for too damn long and it's preventing the site from crawling out of the hole it's been stuck in since twenty-fucking-seventeen, so we're going to be starting from a clean database and importing stuff on a best-effort basis instead of praying that a hacked-together document extraction script will make everything all better.
You will keep your boards, accounts and banners. These should be the easiest things to dump by hand anyway.
The current plan is that around next week (June 15th) we'll be setting up a "new" instance of lynxchan and keeping the site you're using right now active. This is going to be a recent stable version of lynxchan, so it'll be faster and more stable than what you're using now even before taking into account the DB issues. Stay tuned for further details, but given the amount of archival-grade stuff floating around here I want to avoid the "surprise! that thread you bookmarked is gone" problem if at all possible. There will be advance warning.
