so nothing I say here is official policy (We don't really have official policies, anyway, but..)
a) We're leaving net54 because it's become increasingly annoying with the popup ads and increasingly likely that net54 will join the ranks of many gone-bust companies.
b) To register for the new forum click on the link above and click on register. You'll need to fill out the information and you will need a real email address.
c) Once registered, if you post a nice note in issues forum letting us know that you have indeed registered (as well as what nickname you used) it will be very easy to know that you are really who you say you are, instead of one of the lunatic stalkers who is already trying to register as fake people. Until we can upgrade your status your messages will be moderated. That feature of the forum is a bit more annoying than is Net54's, and not all our mods have been through the 12 week intensive training course, it might take ab it of time for those messages to appear.
d) if there are any problems, well, we'll try to work them
e) Let's try to move most of these discussions to Issues from now on..
