Site will be read only from Saturday 27th April

Post by RogerClark » Sat Feb 09, 2019 5:57 am

Just a reminder.

If you've not read my previous post about the End Of Life planning for this forum, please see viewtopic.php?f=16&t=4483


I will commence the gradual shutdown of the site on 27th April, (which is the 4th anniversary, of when I created the site)

Initially I will make the site read-only, so that existing posts are still available, and then work towards converting the site to static HTML pages, so that they can't be hacked and possibly can be archived on GitHub etc.

So that the site URL does not get taken over by domain trolls serving spam etc, I plan to retain the domain for 1 to 2 years.
I've also offered to transfer the domain to ST, free of charge, and I'm awaiting their response on this.

If ST want to use the domain immediately, I'll try to temporarily move the site contents to another domain.


Since users will no longer be able to login to the site after 26th April, I would advise all users who would like to keep in touch with each other, to use the PM system to exchange contact details, before 26th April

Thankyou.

I'm still very interested in the STM32, but maintaining and administering the forum, takes up to much time etc

I'm hoping that perhaps ST will accept the transfer of the domain.

After 26th April, perhaps people could use

https://gitter.im/stm32duino/Lobby

I know that BlackSphere (BlackMagic probe) use gitter as their main means of support and communications so it may work for the stm32duino community

Roger, your work and this site saved my bacon on a tough project. If it had not been for your and this great community's contributions, my workload would have been trippled. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Question: Where will you venting all that energy next?

Thanks for all the effort you put into this :).

And we'll all be wondering where we'll ever find such a nice community with like minded people again >_<...
