    The Editor posted on the official MM Forum that the last issue would be 2912/16. Sad times.

    There is no official word on the fate of their forum. Jason has speculated that it will close when the subscription ends.

    Let’s hope Lee can help us out…

    A great shame if the MM Forum goes completely, there is a wealth of info and experience there.

     

    Hopefully this can be the permanent replacement

    I forgot how quick this forum is compared to the MM one.  Also it’s nice and mobile friendly.  Need to change my password as  sure it’s the one you set up so for me lee.

    Yes, its always been snappy but it should be much quicker soon. I only thought this place was just over a year old but it’s knocking on nearly 3 years old now. Realy does need a dust off.

    Thanks Ritasueandbobto for providing a safe haven for us refugees!

     

    I’m not as big a poster as I used to be, but it’s a massively useful thing to have. I think the biggest thing that will be missed will be “The Thread”

    Hi Lee, thanks for the home from home.

     

    I always thought that ‘The thread’ is a 96 page beast titled ‘Pentium 4 1.5GHz running at 9.5!!!!!!’ :wacko:

    Oh, I see. Ill look into atleast trying to retrieve something but its doubtfull. Maybe RSS is an option but an other solution would be better and that would be some sort of access.

    I was just reading about the closure on the mm forum really bad news. I got to page 3 and the website went down “Server Error in ‘/’ Application.”. Hope its just temporary.

    “The Thread” is found in the overclocking forum, named “Pentium 4 at over 9.5Ghz!!!!!!” or something. Which resulted in 12 years worth of s**t posting!

    Also, the new forum update is a little confusing to me. Is this the final result, or still tweaks/changes to be made and it’s halfway through its makeover?

    I had so forgotten about this thread, seeing some of the names in there brought back some memories.

    Yo. First time I looked here it looked like a US camouflage test. Not sure what happened, but it almost put me off. Dropped in again, since I’m now terrified that I’ll click my MM bookmark and there will be nothing there, and looking much better, so hi from another refugee.

    Hi all

    Not been around MM forum for a bit and saw the news. I lost my password and the forum wouldn’t do a password reset.

    Still lurking occasionally when time permits. All the best with the new home. Will try and drop a contribution soon.

    Quick question, how do you start a thread? Just me being thick I guess but could not see how to do this?? :unsure:

    Easiest way is to go https://forumite.co.uk/forumite-tech-forums/ and choose your topic and click post a new topic in whatever section.

    I was gutted to learn that there would be no more MM but I am so glad to learn about this space.

    Best wishes to all the MM staff (past and current) and thank you for all your work. Good look for the future.
