    What's this private forum all about? Not bothered I'm not in it just bothered I'd never spotted it before :-)

    Oh, best of luck also.

    IMHO it was the best and probably busiest part of UKDF and one of the reasons I / others stepped in to keep the site going.

    Its run via a 'vouching' system at the moment.

    Incidentally how would people feel to make it login-only sitewide, boot out spiders, lurkers and non regged users?

    Interesting, it doesn't appear to have been well advertised. One of the reasons for not spending a lot of time here was that whenever I looked at the forum there wasn't much happening - 2/3 posts a day max. If it was all happening behind a private firewall then the lack of posting on the main forum makes sense but seems a strange way imho to try to gain traction on a new forum!

    Good luck to you and Edwin with the forum and also to Dale and Simon in whatever new plans they have.

    What's the point of that on a public forum, elitism or what? Get a VPN and dump the forum

    I cant speak for him, but I dont think the aim was ever to build a huge forum full of cruft.

    The private forum worked well, and IMHO its a case of taking the elements and reasons why that was so popular and extending it out to all.

    Quality not quantity attracts a quantity of quality

    Best wishes to all those involved in running the forum - past and present, old and new, or whatever suitable form of words insults neither :-)

    Quite the opposite: a small forum full of great posts. There are plenty of other places for cruft-seekers.

    We never wanted any crap here and did our best to keep it out. No doubt the new management will continue in that vein. As far as Simon and I are concerned, it couldn't be in better hands. Thanks to all who supported us, and let's continue to help Rob et al build this as "a better place to be"
