I will go with the majority but I would not care to lose all the old stuff as mine will be considered literary classics in years to come.

To be fair, I've enjoyed his posts a lot more of late.

Apparently, to date, we have posted a total of 220309 articles.

It would be a shame to lose this collective wisdom.

What do people thing of

1) Asking Heyho to get hold of the "export file" and to set up a new forum? The bulletin board seems to be asking for a donation to access the "export file", which appears to be 60. I'm happy to stunp up a tenner - are there 5 others?

2) Ditching all the previous posts and starting up again?

I'd personally go for option 2. It wouldn't bother me losing all my old posts or anybody else's. It's just stuff. Not really important in le scheme grande des choses.

I am in the midst of a heavy Eurpoean travel schedule on business (it appears my services are very much in demand) - coupled with the lack of broadband services at home because of BT crap service. The internet suddenly stopped two weeks ago and BT are running out of credible excuses as to why it cannot be fixed.

Frustrated does not even come close!!!!

An 18 year old son at home without access to the gaming community he is part of.... 'nuff said!

Anyway, in the absence of any  access apart from business trips internet access, would somebody please keep me informed as to what is decided - if we migrate elsewhere or otherwise?

It is clear there are people on here who know about these things - just let me know and how to get to any new home please.

Ta very muchly

Dalek

Would be a shame to loose all of the threads that have been posted on here as some do go a long way back to the start of Reg. So im in and happy to contribute to keeping things as they are.
If a new forum was to be started im happy to go along with that idea too. Just going with the flow..

I'm just chatting with the company that host the phpBB forum I set up to see the logistics of moving the data over.

End of my IT techie speak.

To translate:

It's one thing dumping all the shite we all post, it's another being able to put that shite elsewehere.

By the way before we do anything is anyone opposed to a cleanup of all accounts that have never contributed a post on here? There are 100's if not thousands. Might help with the data dump.

Why would it be a shame to loose threads going way back? I don't get it Badge. It's just forum nonsense, and that's coming from somebody who has propped this place up and contributed on a regular basis in plenty of periods when others haven't been arsed. And that latter comment isn't aimed at you bud. Even old Sheepster has gone dark for weeks on end only for him to pop his lovely ancient wrinkled head up like a tortoise looking for some discarded vegetable after fallow periods of him not posting. There have been plenty of occasions when this place needed saving and people haven't done nowt about it, especially taking the time to post anything for others to read and enjoy. So I don't get everybody all of a sudden being arsed about STR (Save The Reg)

Scrap the lot and start again if you ask me.......I know you won't.

I find this to be quite a revelation, that someone would quite happily discard a communal archive of posts.

I had previously assumed that "everybody" would like to have the opportunity to preserve a sense of history that they had been part of creating (assuming there had been no negative impacts on their life), especially when it had no impact on the physical clutter in their lives.

Clearly I was wrong in my assumptions.

Heyho - given that you appear to be the only sentient person to deal with the transition, and assuming that we get confirmation that the forum is to close, what is your opinion regarding our best options, assuming that either we want to retain old posts, or to start again?
