In the old forum it tells me that it will only be live for another week and then the questions will move to this forum. But when I did a search I found loads in the old forum that is not in this one, so obviously this is just a continuation and does not contain the original content. My question is where is the old content going? will it be searchable where it is or will it disappear.

As per Atalassian, old forums will stay read only for some time and they are not planning to close it down soon. I hope they won't close it down at all but no plans in the near future anyways!

They won't be moving those questions to answers is what I understood, not if they are not asked again here!

At first, Atlassian people asked and answered a number of the very popular and common questions, presumably to pre-load Answers with a body of knowledge to get it started.

I was hoping to see something with a bit more "have you seen this previous question" or improved searches in Answers, because the forums suffered from a significant chunk of "new" questions that had already been answered and a lot of answers were "see this older post" (and the temptation to just say "try the forum search" was very strong at times), but it's not improved.

We've fixed a couple search bugs so far, and we definitely want to continue to improve search. The parent issue for search improvements is ANSWERS-87.

Agree with Nic. People seem to be using this exactly as the old forums. Some users are definitely not clued up for this either.
