...this incarnation of the forkheads forum was activated. Since then, it has been the longest-standing incarnation of forkheads in all of our known history. Home of generations upon of generations of forkheads both old and new - but nothing really lasts forever. I've tried my best to maintain the place, but over time; the damages have piled up, and one decade later, it's time to start building a new place on better infrastructure.

The base of the new site will be a streamlined forum to keep dev projects detailed and delicious spam and fun available as always. Built into this will be a replacement chat that's got more freedom than the current discord channel we use.

Also, here's the tentative summary text of the Privacy Statement.
Spoiler: show
We don't serve external ads that involve click/view analysis, what you get in the 'sponsored' section usually leads to members' pages/projects or to associated websites such as newgrounds. There is no click analytics on any pages on our site. We don't sell your usage data either. Your OC belongs to you - meaning, we do not copyright anything of yours that you post here. Don't be evil. Peace out y'all. PS: The EU's nazi goons will get triggered by this site.


Thoughts? Feels? Suggestions for the next site? Post'em here.

holy shit (I actually don't have shit to say eh)
I guess that's pretty cool?
Well, I mean, I'm still pretty new and shit so I don't really know nothing.
But I saw some people complaining about this thing ( if u don't change the site FH will die n all ) so that's a good thing, right?
Except that this was on for 10 years, holy fuck.
It's a big step.
( I really know nothing about sites and stuff )
but won't you miss it?
all that'll remain of this site will be just memories, right?

I'm hoping that the interface of at least the message board remains that phpbb look. It's a staple standard and probably user friendly? Some other forums I saw, they got this auto float post menu shit going. It's not a forum if you can't read the posts in peace! Can't post right away just because of a single post triggering you flaming. Also, words in post might have highlighted popups; that is sub-basic.

I don't want (too) much bells and whistles. Update the portal page to showcase project development, etc if you want. I don't know about whether to display chat or not. Yes to backup of forum data/info to port onto the new interface and design behinds.

By the way, the damages are due to lack of updates? Mind if we should know the threat agents? Are they intrusion and political lobbying?

Well, yeah. I'll be taking a full backup, of course. Memories are good, a museum's even better right?

Yeah, we'll be using a clean break so no need to worry about learning how to post again.

And yeah, a forkheads chat and project displays. Those are important.

Also, to answer your question; damages were just old age. 10 years is nearly a century in internets time.

That sounds good! Kudos for the privacy-oriented design.
