The forum gets a new owner

Postby oeb » Sun Jan 22, 2012 4:42 am

This forum has changed owners a couple of times before and after six years I feel like it's time for me to pass on the torch. The new owner is Ian, who has been a great moderator for several years. This is probably the oldest and most active Fucking Åmål related forum that still exists - and I'm sure Ian will do a better job than me bringing it into the future! :D

To avoid any confusion: I still own and run the website showmelove.org. Even though the forum is no longer an official part of the web site I'll certainly keep a link to it. However, if you are accessing the forum at showmelove.org/forum/ you should update your bookmark to point directly to fucking-amal.com. Of course I'll also stay a member of the forum, but I promise I will not interfere with any administrative choices O-).

The transfer will happen during the coming week with as little downtime as possible, but you should expect it to be inaccessible for up to 2 days. The forum system will also be updated to the latest version of phpBB.

Good luck Ian! *:)*

The forum will go offline shortly. It should be back online on fucking-amal.com within 1- 2 days. Hope to see you all on the other side! :W

Cheers Ian Image

Is the forum hosted on the same server or has it moved?

Doesn't it cost anything to run a forum, I mean keep it on a host server?

Thanks Magnus.

We've moved. Just a few dollars a month, really (though I'll have to renew the domain name as well in a few years). No biggie. :D

Ian good luck with the forum. Great to see that it keeps changing ownership since I started it many years ago. It keeps the fresh blood running through the vains of the forum!!!

Of course I will hop in occasionally, as I have done the last few years. :mrgreen:
