“The forum is dead, long live the forum!”

It is my pleasure to announce that a new proa forum is springing from the ashes of the old. Marco Nikander (Manik) has taken the initiative to host and administer the brand spanking new! grin

I encourage everyone to head on over and check out the new place. The new forum is built using phpBB - the standard in open source forum software, and no doubt familiar to internet “old salts”. It’s a great relief to know that the community is in good hands and that it will continue. I’ll see you there!

Please be aware that the new Proaforum is not a part of or affiliated with in any way. The old forum content will remain online as a resource archive.
