Starting today, there is a new discussions forum for Reinvented Software, which replaces the old support forums. Long story short, about a week ago, the “users” table on the forums got corrupted and while I could restore it, the backup wasn’t quite complete and people would need to register again.
I decided that rather than make people do that for no clear benefit, I may as well set up something much better. It’s something I’d been meaning to do anyway.
The new discussion forums (based on Vanilla) have some great features, including signing in with your Twitter or Facebook account (or create one just for the forum, as before), pretty URLs, drafts, bookmarking and the ability to manage the discussions you’re interested in. Also, hopefully, it will be less plagued by spam.
The old forums were a few years old and there is a lot of stuff on there, some of it still useful and relevant, so all the posts are archived at the exact same URL as before but it’s no longer possible to register, respond or create new topics.
I hope you will enjoy using the new discussions forums.
