Re: Forum Update

Yeah- I wouldn't be offended if you guys choose to rename the forums. Up to you.

Re: Forum Update

Thanks nestor and cortone for the good vibes. I don't come round here very often anymore, but it's always nice to see the Scope community still lives on and thrives here!

That new logo is a nice update, but I'm a little concerned about asteroid impacts :)

Re: Forum Update

Nice work Valis. Great to see the latest phpBB bringing a responsive and more modern design. I know this transition wasn't a trivial undertaking, and I appreciate you keeping the forums alive and kicking.

Re: Merry Xmas!

Nice one, Holger! Capturing the magic spark (and the near-insanity) of creation.
Congratulations again on the enduring success of the Scope platform!
Happy New Year,

Re: Keep PlanetZ Alive, make a donation

Thanks for the support over the years!
For now, we've removed all the donation buttons associated with me.
Maybe we should unsticky this topic and Matt can start a new topic if/when he sets up a new donation system for scopeusers.com?

Those aren't real links- just examples of what a redirect would do.

Re: PlanetZ forums are moving --> scopeusers.com

@valis, thanks for the new home ! Now I have a number of links to the old forum in ScopeRise site - I haven't tested this yet but I'm assuming those will now be dead links? So I would just have to find em and fix em ? I added a 301 redirect from forums.planetz.com/ to forums.scopeusers.com/, so old...

Re: PlanetZ forums are moving --> scopeusers.com

Thanks Matt for offering to host the forums on your servers, and assisting with the transition.
I'm confident scopeusers.com will continue to prosper with you and GaryB at the helm!

Cheers,

Thanks again, for all the kind words.

And welcome to the new forums.scopeusers.com!

Re: PlanetZ forums are moving --> scopeusers.com

It's been a very long time since I've even had a running Scope system. My old pulsar cards are still sitting on the shelf- I guess maybe I should list them for sale, along with all their registered plugins so one of you can put them to good use. I have listed them here: http://forums.planetz.com/vi...

Thanks for all the kind words and good vibes. What makes the planetz community so amazing is all of you! I'm sure the community will continue to thrive at its new location. I'll probably kick off the transition tonight or tomorrow. When it's happening you won't be able to access the forums, and you'...

Re: PlanetZ forums are moving --> scopeusers.com

If I'm not mistaken, this forum was started with John using a Pulsar 1.1, on a Pentium II 400mhz. Sounds about right. Some of my old pulsar pages (prior to launching the forums) are still archived here, like http://www.planetz.com/Pulsar/Updates.html Or you can go way wayback, for example: https://...

Some time in the next week, the planetz scope forums will be moving to a new server, and have a new name. Matt Broadstreet has offered to host the forums at his server, under the new domain name scopeusers.com Gary B will continue to moderate and Matt will take care of the server backend maintenance...

Re: Proposal to change the second Z moderator for someone el

Ok, might be a good idea to do this around the holidays when I'll have more free time, and hopefully phpbb will get template support in place by then. I just moved JB's forums to 3.1.x to avoid spammer related issues, and I see this is also roughly the same era his was before I moved it. Sadly the ...

Re: Proposal to change the second Z moderator for someone el

Thanks Valis! My availability is so limited . Now with Gary taking on moderator role, and you renewing your offer to take on hosting/administration, I think it probably is indeed time to start thinking about shifting these forums to a new home. My main goal is and always has been to keep the site al...
