Following on from the recent beta testing of the new forums a few weeks ago, we're now making preparations for the final migration and move to the shiny new vBulletin forum software.
As such these forums will be turned to "read only" status for the period of Monday 23rd March - Sunday 29th March, this will allow us to move everything across to vBulletin without losing any posts, post counts, user accounts (hopefully! ).
Visually the new forums will look a little bit different from what you're used to as the software we use now is much older and of course different from the new software, we will however try to ensure that visually they're crisp use space as well as possible, the key improvements will be in terms of functionality, both for you as the end user and us as Admins/Moderators, the old forums really were like running Flashpoint1 in an ArmA2 world
We thank you for your patience during this time!
If someone reports an issue/complains about the Alpha etc, replying in the thread "dude it's an alpha" doesn't really help anyone! Point them to the Arma3 Alpha feedback tracker instead please!
Please do not PM or Email me directly about your CD Key issues, follow the guidance in this thread instead.

During the migration of the forums several unpredictable problems occurred. We are currently working on their fixing, we apologise to everyone for the delay and we will inform you as soon as we know more..

We've successfully resolved the migration issues we were having and will thus turn off these forums at noon today GMT to complete a second migration attempt, fingers crossed this will be the last one!
Estimates are currently that the forums will return, all fresh and shiny sometime Thursday 9th April.
