Perhaps we should change the 'news' on the forum?
« on: February 19, 2013, 02:43:09 am »
Hi y'all, after having been absent for a while, I've had some more time to frequent the forum lately. Now, something has caught my eye.

There's a bar with 'news'. I believe, this hasn't been altered for at least 4 years. I'm fine with it not containing any news (or nothing at all), in fact I prefer that to old news. However, there has been a dead link in there for well over 4 years:
[..] and maybe it's time to remove that link to the old boards in the top-announcement? Doesn't work anymore for a long time now...

Also, I don't believe the "old old" forum the message refers to will ever be revived. Perhaps we can put a friendly message or some more recent news in there? Or at least get rid of wrong info? I always prefer no info to wrong info.

Just a thought.
Most music on my soundcloud page was arranged in programs running on VL.

Good, thought.  I'm not really sure who our "go to guy" for web maintainance is.  Sure somebody does though and will pass this on.

I agree... These things should be addressed
