It's about time somebody knocked the dust off this place! Now get busy and clean up all the cob-web pages!

Glad you decided to come back and stay up. It makes sense for a number of reasons. A few of you are the active developers now, and having control of the site you post your work on should be a greater need than to rely on a site that was kept up with only passive involvement.

Best wishes going forward.

The passive involvement on the part of Galleon, is definately a good reason to keep this forum up.
Since at this point the .net forums are going down multiple times a year, it only makes sense to have a backup and keep it running.

Hi all,

First, I don't want this post being considered as any kind of critic about Galleon dedication to both QB64 and qb64.net!

Now, for any reason (technical, financial, available time, whatever), qb64.net is more and more often down and doesn't show up again quickly. That's only a fact.

So could this forum (qb64.org) become a full "backup" of the official one contents and could it possible to have this done automatically, let's say once a day with an automatic procedure grabbing only the new posts (of course, the first time would request a complete backup)?

I think such a pacific but real and nice coexistence would drive more users here as well protect their interest int QB64 and its complete "family" of related products, add ons, etc.

What do you thing?

Cheers.

Actually, I wish Fell would just ask Rob to be put in charge of the .Net forum. All Rob would have to do is share the password, simple.

If the boards are both SMS, or whatever it's called, the database from one could be uploaded to the other. A mirror site. I doubt if this configuration would make that easy, or maybe not even possible.

Time consuming but useful would be to have the code snippets, libraries, etc. archived and available on this site.

Barring the above, .org will just have to take time to grow. If/when .Net comes back up, maybe people will take the time to post projects on both?

Pete

The wiki here will remain active just like this forum, for as long as we're around.

And the award for "Last Forum Standing" goes to...

With N54 QB Forum down, to what I presume is a choppy "migration" to Tapatalk, and QB64.net down again, I'm glad I nudged you guys to leave this place up.

Galleon did not disappoint and followed the quarterly tradition.
Coding is relax (At least sometimes)

I am wondering if anyone sent Galleon an email or wake up call.

I finally got a reply from Galleon, he's alive.

We're probably getting a backup copy of .net's forum to host for historical purposes soon.

...which implies that he's not going to be bringing the .net fora back up. Is the same true of the wiki?
