Shutting these forums down

Hi everyone,

 

I've been head-down for a while learning some things and planning out some features. Now that I have the knowledge to execute some things I've been wanting to do (for a long time at this point), it's time to start making those changes.

 

I began outlining some of what I have planned on the Curious Cosmos Devlog, but here's what's changing with TTI:

 

First, we're archiving these forums and starting fresh.

 

These forums, the one you're reading now, will remain here at https://archive.timetravelinstitute.com for as long as I own the site. This place will continue to function the way it is now until the end of the year. Feel free to make threads, make posts, use private messages, whatever you like. At the end of the year, we'll officially say goodbye to the old forums and set everything to read-only.

 

I currently have new registrations disabled, and no new topics will be allowed in the Paranormal or I'm a Time Traveler forums.

 

In the meantime, the new forums are ready to go at https://bbs.timetravelinstitute.com. 

 

This is a clean slate, and there are a LOT of little things about the new software that I think will make TTI a more interesting place. I won't dive into those details, but try it yourself and see what it's like. If you get stuck or confused, I'm happy to help via PM.

 

We will not be converting these forums. I have other intentions with this place that I'll discuss another time.

 

I'm doing this for a few reasons. First, I'm tired of traditional forum software. There are more interesting alternatives out there, and I don't think we need to mangle a 22 year old database in order to try something new. Second, I think we could use a fresh start. Not because of any one thing in particular, but I do generally feel that the "traditional" forum setup has run its course. At least for TTI.

 

I will be maintaining a more regular and active presence here and on Curious Cosmos. That'll be a mix between feature development, livestreams and just communicating with you all much more in general.

 

The Curious Cosmos forums are also restarting, and will us Discourse too. TTI will ONLY contain time travel/chronology discussion, so head to https://bbs.curiouscosmos.com for everything else 🙂

 

There's a lot of other things moving, but I'll talk about those when I have something to show.

 

Hope to see you all on the new forums 👍
