Should the forum move to its own site?
No, I'd rather it stayed where it is

I've fixed the problem that was preventing posting on the forum and it is now working again. I'm so sorry for the long downtime; I really don't have a good excuse for it. Thanks everyone for being patient with me...

In the next few days I will be updating the forum to a newer version to make it more secure and reduce spamming, so if it is suddenly unavailable again or looks different, that will be why. I'm also considering possibly moving the forum to its own separate server host so I won't need to keep up with code updates or worry about hackers taking down the whole site through the forum. (I guess partly this will depend on how well this code update goes, LOL) What do you guys think about this?

Just wondering, will the website design still look the same if you move it? Also, will the web address be the same?

Anyway, thanks for fixing the error Smile And just in time for the new year, too! You're so industrious Very Happy Actually, I didn't mind waiting. Don't be too hard on yourself! I didn't notice the board was down until a few weeks ago, because I haven't visited in a while. I'm sure you've been very busy as well - as you should be. You're setting a good example by proving disney fans are also grown ups when they're not doing fandom stuff Laughing Happy new year to you! Smile

I support either decision. Whatever makes lives easier. Smile

Just to clarify, I'm just talking about the forum, not the rest of the site. (At least for now; I'll need to think what to do about the library and wiki next.) If I move it it will probably look different, although I will try to match the current site design (the brown one) as best I can. Of course it will change anyway when I update the code until I'm able to update the template. But if anyone wants me to try to keep it the current colors or do something different I'm open to suggestions. Smile

(Now after I type that I realize you might be talking about the way the forum is laid out, not the colors, banner, etc. That part should stay the same, but, again, open to suggestions. Smile )

I was talking about the colors and banner for the forum and the way it's laid out. I just like the way the board is overall.

Nope, I seriously thought you planned to fix it by the new year because your message was posted on the 1st Laughing I thought the timing was your master plan Laughing It seems so much less epic now that I know it wasn't Razz
