They should make interviews on Beasts of War as Dave did.

I'm about to choose a hosting service today for a new forum. I've just sent a message on Facebook to TTCombat to ensure nothing has changed on their official position regarding an official forum.

We have a very generous offer from one admin to pay for a whole year up front. I will chip in some money too, even though I'm between jobs at the moment.

I'll also post some draft rules and aims for the new forum here for discussion. The new forum will be phpbb for compatibility, just on the offchance that we ever get the original Hawk forum database. Using phpbb means we can easily import it in such a case.

With the hosting will there be the option for a website too? Just a thought, but it could be nice to have a place for things like a permanent gallery, news or how to's.

Some news. There is further discussion going on with TTCombat regarding a possibility of maintaining the current forum. I won't proceed until the situation is crystal clear.

I'm sorry if this has mucked anyone around.

I'm sure we can all agree that the best outcome of all would be if the old forum is fully taken over by TTCombat and maintained as it is. So let's hold off for now. I want a definitive answer from TTCombat one way or another.

Thanks for the updates!

I've asked around a bit about forum software options, and I'll chime in if I hear anything. Certainly, if we could just get new maintainers and administrators for the current forum, make it easier to sign up, and upgrade it, it would be ideal. Bonus if we could get some minimal gallery hosting, etc. included here.

A new forum would be nice. I always disliked this ugly low-tech forum. Maybe a picture gallery, a like button and sone other gimmicks one has come to expect from a forum.

1. I will happily lend some monetary support. I would like to help with setup + mod. work, but my real life might not allow that.

2. @SwordOfJustice could you please ask if they would still do price support for the monthly painting challenge and post the pictures of the winning model on their site?

Either way, a new site for the forum or one hosted by TT, admins and mods are needed to keep the forum running smooth. New people can't join and there already are a few spam bots posting in the forum already.

It would be easy to piggy back off of an existing site but it would be best to have our own hosting so we can control what happens. I recommend that unless it's TT hosting the site, then we should do our own hosting.
