Hi all (or rather former veterans of VF),

Just thought I'd let you know that the Vigilant Forums is now officially closed. I've placed the forum in 'read only' mode to preserve the content for the foreseeable future (Registrations and posting is disabled, however PM's are still active should you wish to contact a member). I understand it can be disheartening to post over the years, only to have it all wiped, so I'll do my best to ensure it's up. As many of you already know this was on the cards for a while, and was catalysed when Vigilant reopened the official forums. I'm sure it will do well.

Thank you for your service there over the years; it was a pleasure. Shout out to Loki for his assistance.

Thanks all.

Yeah I saw. If it's any consolation you can rest easy knowing your post marked the end of an era!

Thanks Scimi.

I enjoyed my stay there Hex Smile and thank you for giving us a place to continue our convos and discussions after the abrupt ending of VC forums. I'm sure i'm not the only one who has a soft spot for what you did bud Smile

Scimi

EDIT: side note - maybe keep the forum open for longer than expected? no telling when VC will shut this one down, it would be really crap to have to start all over again on a fresh forum.

Not to worry. I have a backup of the database as a contingency given the track record of this place (no offence, Vig  Tongue).

Nothing, hex is just letting everyone who came here from Vigilant Forums that those forums are no longer open.

Sorry for my retarded question, but what are the "Vigilant Forums"? (Since this isn't it)
