THIS FORUM IS OLD AND NO LONGER SAFE

We are sorry to announce that the current/old forum has become a medium that technology has surpassed making it unable to be used in it’s current form.
Please fell free to browse through the history it contains and send a quick reply (for as long as this works) on an already made thread but, unfortunately, starting new threads will not work anymore.

If there’s a webmaster who would like to help us find a solution feel free to reach out!

When our host updated the PHP on the website, the new phpbb for the forum doesn't work anymore with it. We are trying out other avenues but outdated technology is the here and now

Yea its on the server, but our host isn't supporting the newer version. I spent 6 hrs on the phone with them to find that out. Nice thing is that the host is free because we're a not for profit

oh well, just thoughts. if we had the ability to update the install files of phpbb within the fileshare of this domain we could try to upgrade it but if that's all being kept behind the curtains then yah understandable that nothing can be done.
- overall, totally understand- i ditched my site/forum years ago cause it was archaic then.
- ready for a discap discord server? lol

Yea you are! Every person gets a general role once they've been active. I've set it so people can generate an invite once I've given them the role 😁
