I wanted to make sure that everybody knows that we are switching to a new forum system called Discourse on April 2nd, as long as all goes as planned. I'll update everybody on Monday if anything changes, but as of right now, that's the plan.
The new forum is designed more for discussion than tech support - while there will certainly be plenty of people asking for help and plenty of you helping others, it's really meant to be more of a discussion area than just a tech support forum.
We will also be replacing the comments on the articles with this new forum.
The new system and rules will be a bit different - there are much better anti-spam controls built into Discourse, the system we are switching to, so we will be allowing people to link to things, and even mildly self promote things they have created as long as it's not actual spam. More to come on this topic later.
Discourse is an extremely modern piece of software. You can read more about it here: http://www.discourse.org/
