Brynn has been trying to get in touch with InkscapeForum hosts for
months regarding the possibility of bringing it under the project's
control, since it has served our community for so long as the go-to for
Inkscape help and community questions.
Three months down the line, no response.
Since it's not moving forward, and indeed the hosts may not even be active
in the community anymore, our thoughts are to set up an official Inkscape
forum to host our community ourselves.
Of course, this is no small decision, so I thought I'd bring it to the
board for a vote.
The options as I see it are:
A. Make our own forum, which we can link off the official website, and
begin answering questions there to migrate users to the official site.
B. Wait longer and hope the hosts of Inkscapeforum contact us back at some
C. Something else
Open to alternatives, but since Brynn and other forum gurus are
towards setting up our own forums, I figured we owe it to them to get a
good answer and solid direction as soon as possible.
Maybe if progress at setting up a new forum becomes visible, it'll
motivate getting the data to us. Maybe focus on implementing option A
but leave open the possibility of replanningif the data shows up.
Thanks for your attention!
