I’ve been putting this off for months, maybe even a year, but the forums in their current state cannot continue.
I’ve been exploring options for how to move forward with them and unfortunately, I think that the best way to move forward will be to completely rebuild them with a new forum software structure. Ideally, we want to have a greater integration with the news blog so that discussion from news can flow more smoothly, but with the benefits that a forum provides.
I really, truly, 100% appreciate that some of you have stuck around and still use the forums to chat on, but I’m sure that you’ll agree they need a new injection of life. I aim to bring that to you in the next couple of months, and, obviously, I won’t just pull the plug, but will give you a timeframe, the first opportunity to hop onto the new and improved forums, and some crossover time.
As my design work begins on the new forums, I may ask for your input – any ideas would be welcomed – and am happy to discuss how the forums as they are could be archived.
As soon as I have an update for you, I shall post it here.
I’m testing out something that I think could work. Let’s have a look…
I’ve opened registration for an open beta, but will not be advertising the new forums just yet. The old forums can still be accessed via the drop-down menu.
