I am considering adding a stand alone forum to this site. Thus far I am far from impressed by this one, and the longer I wait, more damage it will do. I cannot convert the old forum to any new one, but I can eventually copy the posts here to the new forum, for legacy purposes.
I can’t tell when I will add the new one, but the traffic has died down a bit, so I might start preparations this weekend. I still need to do a local test to see how I have to get wordpress and something else, running alongside each other.
