Just happy to have a forum back

Hopefully this will be more reliable than the last.

Are there any plans to move some of the old postings across?

I note we have to re-register

The owner of the previous forum, phpbbforfree, is... well, an immaturechild.  The guy doesn't understand that even though he wasoffering the service for free, he still had a commitment to keep itup.  On top of it, when people called him on it (via the downtimesupport forum on his site), he basically said deal with it because itwas for a greater good.  I'm all for upgrades, and I won't promisethere won't be any here, but I can promise it won't be down for a weekunless it is 100% out of my control (ie: lightning takes out thebuilding, flood, ISP goes down).

Unfortunatly, EDK (phpbb owner) has a policy do to give people thier databases thus making it difficult to leave . Such is not the case here, everything is owned by Gromet and myself, sowe can move it anywhere we want if needed or export the data to anotherforum if we had to.

I guess what I am trying to say is, get comfortable, this site will be here for a long time.

There may be some movement by the various moderators, but if there's athread you want to preserve, it'd be best to start it upyourself.  We'd just be doing a copy & paste, just like youwould.

Tis the first time I've come on the forum as previously either the server or my computer didn't want to play nicely. Things were constantly crashing so I had to give it up. But from being on other forums this one is nice and clean looking and easy to operate. Glad we got away from the immature child, I've had my fill of those sort of people on and off the net.Galinda (The Not So Good)Galinda38638.4599189815

Hopefully, we will experience no down time on this forum.  Whilethe previous forum was good, and the updates were to be expected, itdid get annoying.  But i'm sure this new forum will work out justfine.

many thanks and congratulations to you! you have stepped in and done all of us a great and wonderful service here!

i remember looking for the "backup the forum" button at the old forum during my rare spare minutes, but it was disabled when i found it *sigh*

thinking of which, have you looked into a backup for this new lovely home? i hope you never need to use it, but having one helps to aid peace of mind

I physically own the server that this forum (and my site) runson.  I do nightly backups and if for whatever reason if the forumneeded to move to another location, I could easily export the data andrebuild it somewhere else.  That was one of the main reasons forscrapping a good forum and moving, so starting over wouldn't ever haveto happen again.

Thanks for a more reliable site then 8-)

I did find the agreement I had to accept to sign up a little strange. Apparently I'm not allowed to post anything vulgar or sexual...

Oh dear. I will admit that I didn't read it. I guess we'll all have to keep our posts clean...

did you miss the white on white small print?  i was sure ispecified not quite white on white for the small print, but there yougo *radiates innocence*

it turns out that if anyone posts anything vulgar or sexual then theyare liable to be stripped naked, dressed up in something kinky, triedup, and then...  well...  then it depends on what theyposted, but we will almost certainly do something sexual to them!

i believe that we have to show you the "error" of y our ways, and that a good orgasm is a powerful learning tool!

Thanks for mentioning it.  It is something that came with the site so I never noticed (as I never "signed up" per se).

I will check it out tonight and have it fixed soon.  Good eye!

I fixed the agreement last night.  The default text and forum settings are made for kiddies.
