I'm tinkering around with another project on this server. Have recently switched from apache to nginx for that. It's possible I will break things. Fortunately everyone, and I do mean @everyone and myself included, has pretty much stopped using the forum.
Thanks to @KerbalABX, I came to realize I never configured categories for for the media gallery addon. How embarrassing! So, I went ahead and created some new categories. I hope they are of use.
We have always run XenForo. I don't know what you're talking about.
jake said I should make most channels public, so I created some new topics to have a reasonable split between what is readable by guests and what isn't. If you want something changed, PM me or complain over in Mods! Mods!
Not laying any grand plans, but here it is. I'm sure you're asking, "But why , though?" I feel dirty every time my friendships are monetized. Every moment on the social networks and chat services, or firing off an email on or to a free email platform is a product sold and that product is a part of me that perhaps I didn't want to become a commodity. It's degrading and dehumanizing if you think about it too much. Running a forum is just an extension of what I was doing with Havardgram. I don't really care whether or not it is actually used. It's a place where if others start using it if needed.
