[History] What was the forum crash?

Postby XndrK » Tue Jan 14, 2014 7:11 pm

I hear a lot of references from the people who have been on the forum for a long time about the forum crashing and being offline for a really long time. When was that, and what happened?

Once upon a time python-forum.org was also home of php-forum something, I don't know the history of that. Then one day the long absent admin showed up and informed everybody, he was going to cancel the domain. The community managed to buy it also starting thinking/working of a forum software all written in python. In those struggles, however there were long times no response from python-forum.org any many old community members probably still think, we never lost the domain forever. We finally did put a php forum back, but never included all the old posts from the old database, yet.

Wow, did I already answer all your questions? That was quick. Maybe others can add to it as well.

Yeah I remember that, my old username was Jeremy on the old forum. I think I was initially one of the ones to suggest buying the site, didn't know the admin was going to shut it down though.
