New forum launched

Friday, August 3rd, 2012

Finally, the old forum is gone. And with it, we’ve removed all of the posts from the past.

Our new forum is located at the same link but this time, we’re on with bbpress.

Why the change…

After carefully considering the use (or should I say misuse) we decided that phpbb was not the way ahead for us. We had an average of 100 spammers registering each day and this was just a nuisance even for simple administration.

We’re sorry about the old posts but we hope that some of them can be restored in due course.

Our new forum has 3 main areas at present. And one is dedicated to the WarrantyTrack community, the world’s first (and so far only) open source warranty management system.

Welcome aboard!
