I have not forgotten you, and never will!
Why I haven't been around much lately:
So, the forum is running on an outdated system. We knew this, but it was never a problem ... until now. In 2 days our hoster will join the rest of the world, and will drop support for the outdated programs we rely on. In technical terms, we're running the forum on PHP 5.6, and that version has reached the end of it's life (and rightly so). We'll be forced to upgrade to PHP 7.2.
That's all good and nice, but our current software version of the forum uses too much outdated functionality, and will cease to work on that newer version.
I'm going to kill the forums at 12:30 GMT (so about half an hour from this post). We've been working on an update. That meant a rebuild of everything we had. Please bear with me in the first weeks of the new forums, as there might be bugs, things missing, etc.
I'll update this post with more info the coming minutes.
