THIS FORUM WILL CLOSE
« on: September 01, 2002, 10:44:51 AM »
During the coming days I will close these forums one by one for posting. The reason is that I have been working on a new forum which uses mySQL and encrypted login. It has the same look and feel as this one (almost) and is both faster and more secure and up to date. It has another URL since I have decided to keep this one here as a reference because there is a huge amount of good tips and tricks here. There is so much good stuff that it is impossible to move everything into the new forum. Also every member will have to sign up again in the new forum. This is because of the encrypted login and then we can not use our old database of passwords.

The new URL is http://asp.flaaten.dk/proxo/  and in fact those who wish can already sign up and start using it. Not all features are implimented yet, but I will work on it in my spare time. I am not sure that I will impliment all features which are here either, since I am trying to achive a "less work forum" as well as a faster forum.

I have also added a new section, which you can see as soon as you visit. The "Help with web pages" section. It will be permanent if there is sufficient interest for a forum like this, else we will step back to the original forums. Time will show.

So it is time to either wrap up the ongoing discussions here or move them to the new URL. I will try to use my best judgement while closing these forums here, and wait until everyone has had a chance to finish ongoing topics.

hi arne,
i have a question.

if this is the best forum in the net, why the new is better?

re-thinking to what tegghead wrote about this forum's unique layout, i'm really happy you have set up a new forum like this old one. thanks very much.

regards,
altosax.

The new has a better security and is not sending passwords as plain text. The passwords are encrypted. Also I like to use mySQL instead of Access database. And the original code from Snitz has been impoved very much and is more correct and streamlined. (Better coding) I will impliment the other options as soon as I have time. The new forum code is much more easy to work with since it is not a mess like the older versions of Snitz.

Now that my mistake is solved, I have begun opening the locked forums for the public here. This means that the forums I lock for posting will at the same time be readable without having to be logged in. It will just be a pain if we have to log in here as well as in the new forum. And also a pain for new members in the new forum to also have to subscribe here just for reading our old posts.

And by the way. If anyone have PMs that they wish to save, now is the time to save them localy. Tomorrow I will run a program that will delete every PM there is in this forum. So check your inboxes to see if you have anything you wish to save. I do not read the PMs, but I do run a program that deletes them.

I had been receiving the same error that sidki3003 had, but now there's a new problem when I try to register with the new boards.

When I push the button to register, it brings me to the agreement form. I push the button that says to Accept the agreement, and it just continues to bring me back to that same page.
