Forum Joining Date

Postby Mick F » 11 Jan 2007, 12:41pm


A light-hearted question:

How come your joining date is 14 Dec and everybody else's is early January?

How did you join a forum that wasn't up and running? And isn't 14 Dec before the Old Forum died?

Regards, and I'm sure I speak for all us members, the New Forum is wonderful. Thank you.

We installed the base phpBB on 14 Dec, and Graham and I imported the messages from the old forum, installed various mods to allow for image uploading and to deter spammers, over Christmas. We didn't tell anyone about it until all this work had been finished and tested. Then we changed the DNS and links on the CTC site to make the new forum go live to the world.

Glad you like the new forum. There may well be another update (to phpBB version 3) sometime this year, with more new features for you people to play with :)
