If you have posts there that you care to preserve…
The database for the forum is scaring me. The number of errors and resultant page fails is getting pretty high. Most of those “users” are only search bots at this point as far as I can tell, but you need to be aware that the forum could literally disappear at any moment, at this rate!
I will do what I can to try to import the posts somewhere else, to safeguard our wealth of recipes and knowledge for the future, but I probably won’t do anything at all with it, as long as it manages to stay running. 😛
Members who have been active recently were all pretty much supporters and all should still have access to the recipe archive. Do a search and your results will include that area. Same goes for the old personal journals, they are off the official forum listings but still accessible by their owners. Anyone who “contributed to” the recipe archive over the years and shows up trying to get in is currently being advised to contact me to request access. That seems fair to me. No one is being charged at renewal anymore but I just honestly “don’t have time to deal with it” until it actually breaks, lol.
Consider yourself warned, I guess.
