OK smile

Right now I'm trying to set up IIS6 to host a forum so it may be a day or so before I can tackle it. I'll report back there my findings smile

John Percival known to some as Jack Percival (3 April 1779, – 7 September 1862) was an officer in the United States Navy during the Quasi-War with France, the War of 1812, the campaign against West Indies pirates, and the Mexican-American War.

Born in West Barnstable, Massachusetts, Percival left home at thirteen to work as a cabin boy on a Boston coaster. He later served in the U.S. Navy in the Quasi-War as a master’s mate and midshipman, and then entered the merchant service. He was impressed by the Royal Navy and sent to HMS Victory under Lord Jervis. When placed on a Spanish prize, Percival led an uprising and escaped to the American merchant ship Washington.

In 1809, he returned to the U.S. Navy as a sailing master and was assigned to the Syren, part of the New York flotilla under Captain Jacob Lewis. He commanded Gunboat No. 6 and borrowed the fishing smack "Yankee" on the Fourth of July in 1812, using it to capture HMS Eagle, tender of 74-gun HMS Poictiers. Percival joined Peacock, on 9 March 1814, and made three cruises capturing nineteen merchantmen and two warships, HMS Epervier and Nautilus. For his gallantry in the capture of HMS Epervier, he was promoted to Lieutenant and awarded a special sword by Congress.

In 1826, he sailed the U.S.S. Dolphin into the far reaches of the uncharted Pacific to track down the mutineers of the whaleship Globe. He returned by way of the Sandwich Islands (Hawaii), the first American naval visit to that location. Promoted to captain in 1841, he first saved and restored the USS Constitution and then sailed the fabled warship around the world in 1844-46, Old Ironsides' only circumnavigation.

Percival's legendary reputation is enhanced by the fact that his first naval ship - the Victory - and his last naval ship - the Constitution - remain national shrines in Britain and the U.S., respectively. Herman Melville and James Michener based characters in their novels on this colorful skipper, and Nathaniel Hawthorne wrote about him. He was known by the nickname of Mad Jack (attributable to his intense command style); the folk band Schooner Fare wrote and performs "The Ballad of Mad Jack", which relates incidents from his life. He nurtured in a fatherly manner a generation of midshipmen who rose to prominence in the U.S. Navy of the American Civil War era.

He died with the rank of Captain 7 September 1862 in Dorchester, Massachusetts and is buried near his birthplace in West Barnstable.

Two ships have been named USS Percival for him.

Rick has stated that work on the importers will occour after 7.3 is out the door (as it'd be redundant to work on them when such a large task is at hand); I believe that SD had something working for 7.2 but ceased work on it till 7.3 was out so it would import to the latest version...

the vbulletin one works for 7.2.2 on my test system, however we just need some to step up and volunteer to do some testing with it. I can't stick it in the members area without testing by a few users. So, if you're interested in doing a test with it, you can send me a PM.

Thanks for the update, Rick. We're still not in a great or even good situation to do tests but hopefully someone with more know how and "testing" capabilities can give it a try. smile

My biggest issue was trying to find out how to run impex to first import a threads forum into vb, but I don't think I have to do that now. I've got clients running vb, I'll see what I can get done by this weekend.

Unfortunately we had to put this on hold until 7.3 is finished. d-talk has a good test bed for me, just need to get 7.3 done before we spend more time on the importer.

It's close, just having an issue with moderators.

I've finally got a couple sites to work with as well - my hold-up was getting a site to import from, I just hadn't figured out vb's impex and didn't have the time to learn. But I've got at least one to import from now and maybe 2-3.

All right. Thanks for the update then. We're coming up on the two year anniversary of the first request, so I'll keep my fingers crossed it'll finally get done. smile

Appreciate the update gents.

Unfortunately, there are more bugs in 7.3 than what were expected. Probably Rick is trying to tackle these bugs before releasing the vBulletin importer. Hopefully we will see the importer after 7.3.1.

Now, there we go. That's what I'm talking about. Not happy to hear it after all this time, but at least I know a bit better where things stand.

Thanks, PJ.

It's about 95% done actually, just seems to be a hitch trying to get the moderators imported properly. With the long devel cycle of 7.3 all importers were put on the back burner.

It really won't take much time to finish it off, but bug fixes with the main program itself always end up coming first. So, we probably won't be revisiting this until after 7.3.1 is done.

Kind of rehashing what Pink Jazz said, but now it's official wink

Thanks for the update, Rick. Again I don't mean to be a pain about but just been hoping to update then import from vBulletin for almost two years now so it'd be great to finally have the chance. And for whatever it's worth, I'll manually update mods. smile

So, what is the latest update on the vBulletin importer? It would be great to win back all of these customers who left us.

Ohhhh. Darn. Per a post a few months back you mentioned being 95% done so I thought it was close. Sigh.

Always something. Working on 7.3.2 at the moment, which again means no new status on the importer. Sorry.

Just an FYI for anyone that might still be following this topic. We're actually working on 2 importers currently, and expect to have them finished sometime after 7.4 is released and before we start on any new development. Vbulletin which is 90% done, and SMF.

I'd like to see the phpbb one looked at to ensure it works properly with 7.4... that old PT exists in my box where we where working on it for 7.0

Second that! phpBBv2 and v3, actually v3 would be better since a person could go from v2 to v3 then to threads.

I just did a PHPBB import a couple days ago to 7.4 and everything that's supposed to be imported was imported. That's with v2 however. Haven't done a PHPBB3 importer yet.

It almost works with phpBBv3, there are a few things left out.

Ah, here is my previous post on what happened with a v3 phpbb board.
