Ok, I feel a bit ignored here with my feedback regarding the migration to Blender Artist 2.0. So I apparently have to flesh it out:
On the second day of the Kickstarter campaign (to get funding for a full migration to Discourse), I asked the new administrator:
I have over the years collected a fair amount of links to good/interesting BA post’s. So here is a quick question :
If the crowd-funding campaign succeeds, and a a full migration of Blender Artists from vBulletin to Discourse follows. Will links for old BA post’s still work ? (aka. not be broken).
And the new administrator answered:

So that is very clear - links to specific old BA post’s will not be broken if the migration gets fully funded.
When interesting threads often becomes very long (with hundreds or thousands of post’s), just linking to the first post in a thread is of course not having a unbroken link to a specific post.
But right now this is how things are in BA 2.0. Specific interesting post’s I have collected (and I have a lot) are redirected to post 1 in the thread.
So that leaves two scenarios:
A. This is a technical glitch in the migration. It will be fixed over time.
B. The promise that links to specific post’s would not be broken - was a promise made during the crowdsourcing campaign that are not being kept.
So what is it - A or B ?
