Rants *enter at own risk*

Ah ha! I found a good arguement: Is it not true that the forum is the central platform of user feedback for Rick? Even your 'fighting club' is hosted on this forum and it is a pivetal tool for Rick to aid in testing, design, and functionality. By creating a more stable platform of user feedback-a forum on the getpaint.net server-he would also benefit, leading to a better Paint.NET.

I just said that ;)

Um, guys, I think you're forgetting something. If I'm not mistaken, the first person to have said anything about hosting a forum at http://www.getpaint.net/forum was Rick Brewster himself...

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Sorry, I forgot to uncheck the Auto-Parse URLs box...

BB:

PdN is supported by the forum community. All-in-all, it would take 5-10 minutes to install the software and ~1 hour to configure the settings. Wouldn't a more stable (and more modular) forum to support the program be better than a free host who isn't exactly reliable?

Like we have discussed - we are desperate to keep the posts. Although I still have an idea of agreeing to still host their ads on the new forum if they supply a copy of the database.

I don't know about "desperate..." I mean, it would be preferred, sure, but I don't think we're desperate for anything. :-)

I bet someone could write a spider that sucks up all the posts and puts them into a db... :twisted:

Except that the forum is hosted by forumer so you cannot install mods.

Who said anything about installing something? :roll:

Google isn't installed...

Honestly, you're not making any sense. Start back at the beginning.

Yes. As david.atwell, so rightly put it, crawl back into your mother's womb and start over.

Tight fit? :?

Awkward journey...

What is with your obsessions with deleting files, sabrown? A spider/webcrawler only reads what's there. Why would it delete anything? It would simply need to iterate through each page of the forum and build its own database from that.
