Hi all.

I know I've been neglecting this forum for way too long. I'm very sorry about that!

I've finally been able to find some time to invest in it and I'm currently testing out a new forum software. The hope is that it'll ease the job of the moderators keeping spammers out of the forum.

The biggest issue in moving to another forum is to get all the content moved to the new one.

I'm currently in the process of writing a converter that allows me to move most stuff to the new forum and expect to have something ready within the next couple of weeks. We'll have to accept that some metadata might get lost.

No information (posts, pm's, files etc.) will be lost though.

Anyways, when the move is happening I won't be able to transfer passwords due to security reasons. Therefore it is important that your e-mail address is up-to-date under your profile as that will be the only way to retrieve a new password.

I expect to have a test-version up and running within a month to allow people to have a preview of whats to come and hopefully resolve any issues there might be, before doing the actual move.

Br. Frank.

FYI, I never receive emails, and after Superman reset his email he got locked out and unable to get back in. I'm having to manually reset his account. There seems to be a problem with the forum sending out emails.

Thanks Sean, I'm back in here now. Yeah, I've never ever gotten an email from this board although I'm subscribed to all my topics.

Ok. I'll check the mail settings and write back in here when I've confirmed that it works again.

I got a subscription notice of your reply. That's the first time ever. That said, it is working now.

Small update... It's taking longer than expected :( Mostly because I've had to prioritize other stuff first.

But rest assured, that I'm still working on it...

I agree with Superman...this site is an invaluable resource, and I really appreciate all the work that goes into it!

Thanks for doing what you do, regardless of pace. We all have lives. :-)
