I visit the forums on and off again every few years or so.... I hope the day doesn't come when the forum disappears or is DEL
I doubt that will happen. It is an outlet for FM staff to assist users of their product and an easy place for Users to get FM staff any errors they might get due to compatibility issues, driver issues, etc to help improve FM products.
It is low cost, and most of the effort to keep the place up is done for free. Mods, Admins and sorry I can't remember your name but a fellow Onion here has been doing the upgrades and remodeling for us.
No plans to change anything (well, okay, we do have some plans to look into switching to another forum software for performance, maintenance and security reasons, but nothing else beyond that. No decisions either way have been made yet)
