As many of our forums users are aware, our Zimbra vBulletin forum (zimbra.com/forums) was closed down recently. We greatly apologize to our members for this downtime. We know that, especially for our open source development community, these forums are a valuable resource for advice and information.
To resolve the issue as quickly as we can, we are moving the forums from Vbulletin to the main Zimbra community at community.zimbra.com. The process will take us about a week. In the meanwhile, we have moved all of the forum user profiles over to our main community and have invited them into a temporary forums space where members can open up new discussions about our Zimbra Collaboration and open source products. Once all the data and discussions are migrated to the new space, we’ll move these members and the new discussions into the appropriate forum sections.
Here’s the timeline:
- Zimbra forums members will be migrated starting tonight through the end of Saturday. Each member will receive a welcome email letting them know they are now members of the main Zimbra community at community.zimbra.com.
- The members will be provided links to the new community space, as well as instructional content, including rules and guidelines for those new to the forums.
- Next week, our community management team will be answering questions and helping to guide these new users in the new space.
- Monday, Sept. 22, we will open up the new forums with all of the old forum data and discussions in place.
Forums members, this weekend, please check your inboxes for an email with the subject line, “Welcome to the community at Zimbra!” It will contain the information you need to get started using the new community forums space.
This should not affect the community experience for our current community members.
Thank you to all of our community members for your patience and understanding. I’m looking forward to chatting with you in our new forums!
