Howdy all, just a heads-up that i've locked the old forums (no logins are permitted) so they're officially a read-only archive now.

Glad to say that's done with, but it's sad in a way. It was an interesting era.

Yeah, it would have been possible to add features to it, but it would take a lot of man hours.

Yeah, it's the end of an era, but the beginning of a new one! The old forums started in January 2009, is that correct? So, for the 5th anniversary we get a new forum? :)

It definitely would, but it is a good starting point. I suppose I could probably update the code and separate the html/styles/code (aka themes), update it so it works with a recent version of PHP, universal database support, and so on and release it as an open source project. But i'm not sure the forum world needs another wheel :)

I believe it was January 5th 2009 the old forums were launched.
