Well, here we are again. Has it been almost a decade since we had forums? I've tried to keep things alive with social media, Reddit .. but dammit, forums just make more sense for our community.
I'm looking into restoring old threads from my database backups - but don't hold your breath.
In the meantime, a few notes about our new home.
This is a paid forum. I'm paying for ad-free service right now. I'm hoping the assface Chinese hacker groups that constantly seem to barrage my forums (and inevitably get me booted off my hosts) can't get to us here.
This forum has THEMES. Edit your profile and go to SETTINGS. The dark theme doesn't have a big banner on top - you might like that.
I have put all of Alex's great custom avatars from the MW forums up - so those of you who prefer a more anonymous presentation can do so in style.
This forum is Tapatalk ready. You can access it fully via the mobile application - and at least for Android users? You can share DIRECTLY to a post via the built in Android sharing system - this feature alone is what made it possible for me to return to a forums format. I can't appear to live without it.
I guess that's it for now. Welcome back.

Can't beat a classic forum! I love how we can have a direct line to you and give feedback/questions.
I couldn't get on with reddit I would have persevered for the sake of the show but glad it's gone. I also hate twitter so glad you dumped that shit but I feel that you might be missing something on Facebook maybe as that us my hone and houses all my interests and after carefully culling my feed to my liking it's indespensible for me. I also like it a lot for my local bargain hunting. But I can accept it's not for everyone.
Anyway here's to a successful venture on Monroeworld's Forum!
