    One important thing the new forums have done is to reactivate many older members who where dormant before the closing of the Dexterity boards. I think this is a very positive move, I personally feel more responsible for the well being of the community now that it is officially one and not part of a specific company board. Independent of how Dan manages to transfer the data we are building a new base of knowledge for this community.

    I like to officially thank the hosts and admins of our new forum here. I believe they are:

    Mike Boeh
    Steve Verreault
    Dan MacDonald

    I learned about the Dexterity forums just as they were moving (so I never posted there), but I have seen this to be a really helpful community. I hope it continues to be a place where us Indie’s can help and support each other. Thanks for offering your time and resources to make this happen!

    If this forum is ever in danger of going away again, please let us all know. I’m sure the community would band together and help out in any way needed (even financially) to help keep this place together

    Again, I and lots of others (I’m sure), Thank You!

    Hey..

    Dexterity Forums Archive

    What's the status of the official effort to get an non-privacy-policy-violating archive of the dexterity forums? Is the effort under way? Is there an ETA? Is there anything I can do to help?
