Backup Forum Location
« on: January 05, 2021, 11:29:05 AM »
Hi all:

With the looming need to update the forum software (now made more urgent due to the top-of-page php related errors), I realized having a "backup" place to congregate / communicate should the forums go down would be a good thing.

I know there's not great love for Reddit among many of our users (this was brought up during the transition) but it's something I know won't go down. Accordingly, we now have a "thefora" subreddit:

Should the site become inaccessible for any reason or you are unable to access it, you can post there / get in touch with me via reddit (as eigengrad, the subreddit moderator).

Thanks so much!

Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding.

Reprove not a scorner, lest they hate thee: rebuke the wise, and they will love thee.

Give instruction to the wise, and they will be yet wiser: teach the just, and they will increase in learning.
