I believe he means that the forum is not very active or popular, and wants to discuss ways to improve this

As you know only MIF can do that.

I agree. Could a chatroom at least be implemented?

Re: Forum Dead?

It can but the administrator does not want a chatroom.

Two years back, I suggested that we completely archive the current forum and install a new software. He was too busy to listen.

Dang, so is there anyway we could update the forum software to be more interactive like profile pages, etc.?

Hi;

The chatroom idea requires a lot of moderation.

Yes. They could give me the rights to modify the forum software. Or someone who has the time to spare and some understanding of web technologies.

Re: Forum Dead?

I know you are capable and I would and did recommend you but this is MIF's forum and he has the right to have it look and act the way he wants. When I think of it that way I know he is right.

We have a chatroom that meets every alternate year on a secret cryptocat channel.

Last year, bobbym did not show up
