Hey, are you there?

Is anyone here?

I heard (er, read) the news. I know I've been inactive, but I haven't forgotten about you guys.

This post is going to echo through the lonely halls of this desolate forum, isn't it? I hope not.

I am here! i AM HERE!

Hang in there. I am almost done transferring everything to the new laptop and setting up the modifications in the dummy forums. Also, I have to duplicate these a little closer in the copy. Then I will announce a shutdown period while I replace the forums with a clean copy complete with modifications properly installed. Then I am considering teaching encouraging FloppyBelly to install modifications too. As administrator she should learn how to do this in case of a feature request or if she runs across a mod that she thinks would be useful.

Run across a mod? What, just lying there in the gutter?
Also, what news?

There is a place where phpBB comes from. There people who create useful modifications and are willing to share them place them in a database that you can search or browse.

http://www.phpbb.com/mods/

There is no news yet, but I will post a notice when I am ready to reset the forums with a clean install and all modifications in place.

Ownership will be completed around February. I am still trying to find out why my dummy forums aren’t exact copies minus the modification errors. Maybe I’m too picky, but I don’t want anything to go wrong. I’d like to find a way to preserve everyone’s avatars so I can restore them too. It seems that all forums have this problem when upgrading phpBB.
