Title: The 'Korat Fart' forum.
Post by: Roger on December 16, 2019, 03:53:30 PM
    Lately JF was posting to himself, for many weeks and for some time now, just a blank page has shown . . . .

    IF JF has given up on the project I can understand why. But IMO it is a loss - in the past Korat Fart was a good source of interest, discussion, info and advice for me and I guess I'm not alone in that.

    I never understood the cross forum ire but never mind. In these days of facebook, line etc., I'm just happy that this Forum survives - IMO it's valuable to have it there.

    As for JF, well I'm sorry we seldom saw eye to eye but I hope you are well and thanks for all your work with the Forum, which was often very much valued.

    After all that - perhaps Korat Fart is just taking a short break. ATB JF

    JF seems to have created a new forum....The Korat Forum.

    Pasted from the new forum

    This is still mainly a testing forum; but due to the data base problems of it might be used as an alternative instead. At the moment I cannot guarantee that it will remain; the software is a release candidate (RC2) only. And it also depends upon how things are going on with

    Looks like a recent server crash did big damage to the database. After repairing about a dozen tables already I don't feel much interest to repair any more now. Maybe later, maybe not at all!


    This is what I get if I try to log in on KF

    Table 'web142_db7.smf_members' doesn't exist

    Hope he manages to  it out

    All the best JF

    I'd like to echo the sentiments above. Johnny worked hard to maintain KFart, and on the korat-forum site I made a point of stating that any historic nastiness was firmly in the past (it involved people who have either long-since passed away or who are circling in different orbits with their own projects. For those reading this who don't know the back story, please don't feel you are missing-out; it was a wet-fish-at-dawn situation where personalities clashed).

    I do miss Thaiga posting, both here and on KFart. People like Thaiga make a real effort to engage.

A six weeks old backup of the database can do, as far as I can see. But to keep it going requires efforts by more people than just me.
