Attention NNTP users - Forum Change Notice

Attention NNTP users.

As you have probably noticed by now, on the NNTP side of the fence, this is a new forum. It actually links to the old forums in the web interface. We have set the “old” community forums to read only for a while just for reference. We apologize for the inconvenience but we felt we had to make the change and here’s a detailed explanation if you want to know more:

We were getting a lot of technical support type questions in the “Community” forums. A number of factors contributed to this such as forum names, descriptions, etc. One of these factors was the community forums being listed before the help forums in a standard NNTP reader. NNTP doesn’t support the renaming of forums, so in order to effectively “rename” the forum we had to create new forums and delete the old ones. The downside of this is that all the messages to date are not in the new forums. We (staff) felt as this was non-technical information, and it’s still available from the web interface, this was an acceptable
trade off to make things work better ongoing.

Again, we apologize for messing with your forum experience.

Summary of the change:

The following forums have been set to read only and will be
removed shortly from the server:

The following NNTP forums have been put in place as replacements:
