My friends, I have some good news and bad news.
The bad news: Issues with the old databases prevented them from cleanly updating and they just aren’t compatible with the updated versions of the software. Repairing the problems proved a herculean task, demanding great time and expertise that was simply not available.
The good news: With tremendous help from Ikoma Ken, a fresh board has been set up. In time, it will shift closer to the forms we remember (but probably without that intensely… vibrant… default theme) as bells and whistles are restored. Registration has been streamlined.
The original forums are now set up as The Archives for a time so that old information can be referenced and copied as needed. The no-frills forums are now set up under The Swift Sword up top. There is still much work to do, so please bear with us in coming weeks.
