We must save the knowledge accumulated on the old forum.
« on: November 27, 2017, 05:53:02 PM »
The fan club of the Citrus Growers forum succeeded to gather six static backups of the forum. We intend to publish one on the internet. It is a very hard work and before we start we want the permission from Laaz.
Laaz, please just say yes. We shall take care of everything and not bother you.

All the people who want to save all that accumulated knowledge must say it now and help in our fight!.

Sylvain, for the CG fan club. ;-)

I keep my fingers (and toes) crossed. It is always sad to loose an accumulation of experience and knowledge.

For sure. That forum was where I first started my citrus interests. There's so much discussion and info that we left there. ..

Indeed it was a great forum.  But change.org certainly not for me.

Millet, I think the "change.org" proposal is just a teasing joke.

I hope Laaz does let us save it.

There was a heck of a lot of accumulated knowledge on that board.  It would be a pity to lose it.

Agreed, I enjoyed the old forum and would love to see it preserved to reference many of the great threads there.

I would love to see it saved too. I can't think of any reason why Laaz would not allow it :)
...but I could be wrong...

Brief recap,

Laaz paid a fee per month for the site of the old citrus forum. It was a ‘forumup’ site I think. Somebody said the fee was very small. Does that mean Laaz owned the ‘rights’ to the old citrus forum ? Laaz ran , hosted or otherwise had some leadership function in a popular old citrus forum. Laaz had some health problems and lost interest in the forum.

About the same time the forum seemed to blow up. It had very intermittent service, often down for weeks and new members could not get authorized to join or post on the old forum. To me it was like a dead ship in the ocean. Millet was a very active member of the old forum so he initiated contact with the tropical plant people that allowed Millet to start a citrus leg or component here.

Laaz has made a few token appearances in print here but I haven’t seen anything lately. He seems to have lost interest or maybe has other problems.

The new forum (here where you are reading) was started by Millet and it seems to be well received all over the world. Several people in this thread are interested in trying to copy or otherwise make available content they have copied or might be able to copy from the old forum. There are many members that have been on both forums.

I enjoyed the old forum and I am in favor or keeping it available for all to view !

Tom

Well, I don't think it is very accurate but it doesn't matter much.

Any way it is not a question of copyrights but of fairplay and courtoisy to ask him before we release the back up.

I'd say that it should at least be available to those of us who have contributed to it! :)
