New site section: 8 bits

Based on user feedback I've created a new site section in the forum called "8 Bits". This is intended to be used for all things Commodore 64, 128 (PET, whatever). A lot of us here grew up on the Commodore 8 bits and the Lounge is getting pretty full of its related content.

It was time.

FWIW, I host a Slack for members of the SEA-CCC and we've had an 8-bits channel there from day one. And it's very busy, too.

I attempted to move a pre-existing post from Mr. Toast "pi1541 build" from the Lounge over to the new forum. It did so instantly. But when I went to delete the original post in the Lounge it deleted both it and the new one in 8-bits. Super annoying! I suppose the intention is to move (copy) the original to a new location then lock the original. But that's pretty dumb, except for some minor SEO support, I suppose.

In any case I don't plan on moving any other topics over as the duplication would get messy.

I figured out how to move topics & posts without creating duplication. Very cool! It might break some inbound links, so I won't do very much there.

I moved a few more topics over. I only moved my own posts in case something bad happened along the way this time.

I learned if I moved a topic that had more than 1 page of posts, bad things did indeed happen - so I had to completely eliminate one of our threads. Argh! I think I'm done migrating things over for now.
