Given the 'Important Announcement' displayed on entry to the forums, what does that actually mean for us here in Urbanglasgow?

Are we going to lose this site too?

Unless we can migrate everything to another venue that provides HTTPS as standard its looking like doom and gloom.

It'd be a great shame to lose all that has been built up here.

The Project Hawick forum recently went t**s up after Forumatic shut down. Only good thing to come out of it is that we backed up all our stuff and will transfer it onto a new standalone website in the near future. Social media is king (for now at least).

Perhaps we could all chip in and fund a website together?  

Meantime, if any of the regular UG folk want to join the Project Glasgow Facebook admin team, give me a shout.

I subscribe to a Model Railway Forum that uses https://www.phpbb.com/, this doesn't seem to be affected by the closure of the current service supplier

No, as none of the photos are hosted on the forum to begin with hence having to post up links from Photofuckit and Flickr.

Let's just see what James has to say about it first. Chances are it will merely be exported and hosted somewhere else.
