But more about future plans. A couple of people have offered to help, but it's still been kept to vague future plans. Doesn't this demand immediate action?
I can help with a couple of things:
- Deploying the new BBS and migrating the content (if applicable). I haven't done that before, but I am knowledgeable about GNU/Linux and have some experience with system administration. Things like deploying web applications is a hobby of mine. So I'm not sure if I could figure it all out by myself, but I sure wouldn't mind giving it a try.
- possibly provide hosting as well, although I'm not sure if it can handle the traffic. I'd have to check.
- choosing the forum software, if that's on the table. I've seen some shiny projects, like FUDForum.
Finally, the idea of being without a forum seems a bit scary, even if temporarily. I've created a Discord server so people can stay in touch in the meantime. I know there's an IRC channel, but while there's no forum, something with more features like multiple channels, offline messages, etc. might be more convenient.
