You are visiting the new afterglow forum. Like the project itself, the forum is under development and may be unstable or buggy from time to time but it will evolve and eventually get more stable.
Why did the old forum disappear?
We had some strange errors with the old forum software. As our plans included a software change anyway, we just made this change a bit earlier.
Which software are you using now?
The forums are now building upon Flarum, which is a great project. The project is - much like afterglow - in the makings and currently beta. So there might be some problems from time to time. If you encounter one, let us know.
I want to login using twitter or some other external service
This is a feature which is currently being built. You will soon be able to do so again.
Where are the old posts? Why can't I login using my old credentials?
We had to make a decision. The old forum went down and as there were very few users until now, we decided not to create an importing script. They are gone for now...
Why isn't there a wysiwyg editor?
There might be one in the future. For now, use markdown. Which is great, by the way.
