The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project will open its first official forum, on the Inkscape website, this August (2019). (Address/link will be provided at that time.) When that happens, new registrations will no longer be allowed in this forum and Inkscape support will be provided in the new forum. This forum will still be open for a while, so that existing topics can be finished, and existing users can have access to their contents. But all potential new members should register on the Inkscape website, and post their questions in the new forum, starting in August. If you have any questions or comments, you can post them here.

Although I've been planning to put this forum in read-only mode, at the time of this transition, unfortunately, my personal circumstances have changed, and I won't be able to host this forum much longer. If anyone is interested in taking it over, please contact me.

new "official" Inkscape forum
« on: June 20, 2016, 04:10:12 AM »
Hi Friends,
This is slightly old news by now, but I just realize I neglected to make a post about this.  It seems the admin (the single owner/admin) of InkscapeForum.com has been unresponsive for over 6 months now.  When the issue was brought to the Inkscape Board of Developers, they decided to explore the possiblity of having an official Inkscape forum, for the first time in the history of the project.

Here's a brief News item on the Inkscape website about it:  https://inkscape.org/en/news/2016/06/06/inkscape-forums/

It will be a shame if all the resources and tutorials from the site will be lost.

Ah, well the long lost admin finally showed up the other day.  We're hoping we'll be able to save it   :xf2:

Saving the forum and the info herein is great, what we need is to get the members to participate, but I have no suggestions as to how!

What would you all think about making ICD part of the new official forum?  It would not be intermingled with InkscapeForum.com contents.  It would exist whole, in a separate section of the forum.  You wouldn't have to change your links.  Everyone would be automatically forwarded.

And another question.  What would you think about making the whole forum read-only?  That means you would not be able to post new messages - only able to read it.  Honestly, weeks and weeks go by, months even, without any new messages being posted.  And I think as I recall, what most people said when the forum was about to close, is they just wanted to be able to look up tutorials.  So you'd still be able to do that.

And, as I'm asking this, I have no idea if the committee that's working on the new forum would agree.  But I thought I should ask you all first.

Any comments?
