I am in the process of switching to a new forum system for this site, and while I rebuild the forum section it will not be possible to register new users on andreasviklund.com. The new forum will be launched on thursday if everything works as intended, and it will be based on WP-Symposium. One part of this switch will include a cleanup of spam registrations, as the previous forum and the registration plugin I have been using did not stop automated registrations – a glitch that resulted in hundreds of non-human users. The cleanup will be made using a tool that checks for last login, and I will do my best to make sure that I don’t delete any active user by mistake. If that would happen and your login suddenly stops working, please send me an e-mail with your previous username and I will add it back.
WP-Symposium is an exciting project which will allow me to add more features to the site, mainly community features and connections to social networks. Profile pages, user-to-user messaging and member lists are among the suggestions that WP-Symposium includes and which I may be adding at a later time. I will write more about this in future posts, and as always I would love to hear what you would want to see on this site.
I have not been able to find any way to export the old posts into the new forum, but the old forum will remain online until I do.
