[15 Jun] - Community poll | Forum? (Result)



Hi everyone, 


Many thanks to you all who have left their thoughts on this Poll's question, they're greatly appreciated.  


Seeing as there weren't any objections expressed by the rest of the community, I'm thinking it's reasonable on my part to interpret that to mean everyone is on the same page about not minding the removal of the Forum from PoetBay. 


As it's been noted, it's true it's a section of the site that hasn't really been used in a very long time.  Still, I just wanted to give you a head's up of my intention, and in case your feelings were different, you'd be able to say. 


So, the result of the poll is :  the Forum has been removed.  When our uploads are completed, the change will be officially set then, and the Forum will no longer exist on the site.

Hi everyone,


In the last 6 weeks or so (see 'What's up? (Update 6)), I've been working in the background to continue the updating of our code to the new ways of doing things in code. 


These updates will make PoetBay's code more robust for general online security, as well as ensure easier ways for its upkeep to the latest versions, so we never get caught offguard like we were in September.  


It's going very well, and I'll be able to proceed with the uploading of the new code on the site here soon, most probably at the end of this week.  I will let you know before I make the uploads of the code updates to the site.


But, as I'm finishing up my work, I'd like to run something by you before I go ahead with a change I have in mind :


Would you mind if the Forum was removed from PoetBay?


Thanks for letting me know your thoughts/preferences!

I do not have a problem with removing the forum.
Thank you for all you do.

I'm fine with it being removed.

I wouldn't mind. I've never even looked at it before now, and it appears that no one has contributed to it since last September.
