    I've opened up a blog where I'm going to post frequent development updates, you can find it at ! Obviously the world famous SimAntics & World Development thread will return soon, but it'll be more focused on the technical side of things, and the blog will be where you can find big updates and information on community events.

    From now on if you wish to follow FreeSO's forums, you should start going to We've migrated the old XenForo instance over and handed Afr0 a copy of the database which he can use for his own if he decides to buy his own.

    Great news to see that the forum is heading towards FreeSO , one question , will the famous SimAntics & World Development thread return with all the old posts , or will you create a new thread ?

    The old posts will be archived, and we'll start with a new thread.

    I can't really change what's on that domain because I don't own it.

    Should this build on Linux or can I stop building Monodevelop?

    Honestly I don't like the idea of a new blog. I would think the forum is more than suffient for posting news. You could have also created a subcategorie for "News" and one for "Developer News" or something like that. If you remember Afr0 did also have a blog. But I guess most people didn't look at them as much after the forum was created. I for one, didn't visit his blog much. Sometimes I've found that he did write something months after that. Most of the time I'm only in the forum. Maybe this is just me, or maybe this is because he didn't wrote frequently those blogpost.

    But don't get me wrong I'm totally for more news, and I very much like the Idea behind this. ;) If it has to be a blog, integrate it more into the forum. Maybe the same header or a news box on the side, to make it easier to discover it.

    Not sure, I'm not in charge of the forum server so couldn't do anything about it. My bet is that the software hosting the forum crashed, and simply stopped accepting connections (cos it was crashed, duh).
