    You are smarter than me!

    2. I know I'm probably the "old guy" here whining....but if you make a new site and there's only a dozen or so people to start.....what's wrong with that? (I don't know anything about running a website though.....maybe you NEED a certain number of hits or it gets cancelled?) Personally, I'd rather have a 'core' group of people who tend to come here to talk Dragonlance stuff than 1,000 people having 800 different conversations.....but again, apologies for my 'get off my lawn' kind of attitude.
    No minimum requirements like that to keep a website up.

    Max, take a look at the Piazza's Dragonlance Forums. I think it will have what you're looking for.

    The Piazza is a message board about various RPG settings, as well as various D&D and Pathfinder game systems. Each of their forums is like a community of its own. For example, the Mystara community is quite vibrant there.

    Many of us here are also over there.

    I don't know....just spit ballin' here.....but as a final note; whatever you decide, thanks for running this place!
    Thanks for your kind words and your input.

        Yeah, I killed the trading post and one of the non-DL ICRP games that came to an end.

        Sorry I didn't give advance notice.

            I joined this forum in 2004 and it has been a great place to walk shoulder-to-shoulder with fellow Dragonlance fans. I picked up Dragons of Autumn Twilight for the first time back in 1986 and have never let the world go. This place (the forums) is highly sentimental to many, if not all, of us. There were some 'altercations' but all-in-all, we did strive to make the most of our shared adoration for what Weis and Hickman crafted. No matter where I need to go for my Dragonlance fix, I will go.

            Also, I used to be rather active mostly under the in-character roleplaying section; but alas, everyone has left. There are still a lot of old roleplay storylines I'm still trying to copy and paste to my own website for longevity and nostalgia sake, so hopefully any sort of decision to let this forum go/merge would take a while to happen.

            Any sort of time-frame you have in mind?

              I may need a tissue. *sniff*

              In the next couple of weeks, I'm going to be working on moving these forums to a new server. It may be a temporary server as I work on upgrading the software and look to put some spam protection in place.

              These forums have meant a lot to me, and I know they aren't the same as they once were. But you know what? We can still make a go out of it and have some fun. Even if it's limited.

                      Well, it looks like the move worked. Any unseen changes?

                        I don't know. But now I have my excuse for thread necromancy. Check out my post on the old thread about Venger!

                          Mostly some updates on the back end. I'm still exploring this updated software myself.

                            The biggest change as of right now is back-end server upgrades. There are some ideas that are being worked on which includes new software and features.

                            During the upgrades, I also setup downtime alarms. So, within a minute of the various sites such as the Forums, Lexicon, Podcast, etc. going down, we will be notified.

                              Thanks for saving the forums, especially since I don't have a FB account.
