Is this policy still active? My first posts on the new forum never passed moderation...

Frankly, and as I said on Google+, if you had restored your original account as per instructions instead of creating a new one, your posts wouldn't have been waiting for moderation in the first place. Now you don't have your post history anymore.

As for those posts being in limbo, sorry, I didn't notice that there were topics waiting for approval, then there were posts waiting for approval. Never saw them until a few minutes ago.

Well, [kwahoo] login was registered by a different man on Sourceforge and I had to register [kwahooo] instead:( On the new forum [kwahoo] was unregistered, so now I have a proper name;)

Can someone speaking German tell those stragglers that the old forum has been moved for the past month?!?

viewtopic.php?f=13&t=4863
viewtopic.php?f=13&t=4860&p=38216#p38216
viewtopic.php?f=13&t=4869

I've been replying with Google-translated text but they continue to disregard my warnings. :roll:

Better yet, can't we delete the whole Sourceforge forum now???

Instead of creating a new account, you could have asked us to change your existing login name.

Now on this forum there is a user kwahooo and a user kwahoo both belonging to you. In some other forums this is not permitted...

BUMP! Someone else posted on the old forum today. I can't believe how they can't see the big warning at the top!

Yorik, I saw in the ACP that we can disable the whole forum. I would like to do so, it's been more than a month now. What do you think?

For me, I'd disable the whole entire old SF stuff (mantis, forum, wiki and everything else). There will be a few cries and dead links around on the internet, but sooner or later people will need to update their links...

OK, three votes so I just disabled the old forum. I was tired of telling people to stop using it. I've been doing so for the past 5 weeks!!! Even today someone new registered on the SF forum. :roll:

I'll leave Mantis and the wiki to Yorik since I don't have control over them.
