If the Cellar really is to close, I'm in.

Hate Facebook - can't have a meandering months long chat - can't really be open and honest. And it's a messy screen to look at.

Discord is cool, but again, it's an ever moving thing, you can pin a few messages, but overall its not good for longer term discussions. There aren't 'threads' so much as channels/rooms within a chat server.

I do like the idea of an associated Discord chat room maybe with a link on site - but there are some costs involved if it is to be anything more than the very basic free version. I don't know what the costs are, but I doubt they are a lot.

Discord may be good for some things, but it's the worst possible choice to host what the Cellar does. Confusing interface, everything disappears unless pinned.. it's a chat room with multimedia support, not a message board.

Well I want a final determination before his birthday next month, I don't want to spend thousands if he's really dumping me.

Jeeves, bring my snit around!

Okay, stepping up then.

https://cellar.boardhost.com/ is now live. I'm still working on getting the monkey header image in place, but the forums and color scheme and whatnot are reasonably well-replicated. Can't test the registration system because I'm already registered, so someone let me know if that's working. (And of course everyone register with your current username, please...) Will work on adding moderators and all those details soon.

Don't know yet, I couldn't try to access it through Tapatalk until I'd made it live. Trying it momentarily...

I didn't scrutinize it closely. I saw a lot of rules about behavior. Does the forum enforce that, or do our moderators enforce that?

Moderator Section

Need some help keeping an eye on your forum? Ask a co-worker or fellow user to be a moderator! Moderators can edit, delete, move postings, and more.
appears that all the hosting service wants to do is run 'unobtrusive ads' but idk I don't see any ads
eta: i guess clod upgraded to paid version? we should organize a fund for paying the bills, will likely come up with more than needed and have to figure out what to do with the rest

Did you read the rules that you clicked on to acknowledge your read them? No NSFW content, no harassing other members, etc.
