Keep the forums running?

Keep the forums running?

Post by Mort » Thu Oct 12, 2017 9:06 pm

Well, things have been a bit quiet on the forums of late. Does anyone even still visit here anymore?

Keeping it going isn't an issue, but is there much point? Is there any value in keeping it running for nostalgia purposes or do we say it was fun and take it on a trip to the computer vet?

I come past and check every now and again. If anyone was posting I would actually notice :).

righto, well if anyone sees this and had noticed the forums were offline for the last how ever many weeks, they are back again.

A few weeks ago the server hosting the forums had a total failure so I had to install it all again on a new server, which then had updated php versions which meant I had to update the forums software, which had a bug talking to SQL... basically a lot of drama, not enough time and rather reduced motivation...

Anyway, here we are, back again on the latest and greatest verison. If you notice anything odd, let me know.
