Just a question
What mean OMPF ? it's a strange name... maybe the best will be to register a new domain and host it on one of our servers ?
We can also share the administration to some 'top level' users like Jacco, toxie etc....

Hi everyone! Glad about ompf for being back, up and running.

maybe you can remember that better? it's just a quick redirect, set up to sound better. (conesoft.net is my domain)
I want to get ompf.net, but it seems a bit premature; lets give it a couple of weeks. I feel slightly bad about taking over tbps work, he did an awesome job, and I wish we could go back to that.
We are now at 37 users, and multiple discussions are in progress. I'm very glad to see this, ompf is a great community.

Yes, but there are some other available domains... honnestly I don't understand what mean 'ompf' and maybe there are better name than this one.
Of course, if the original one can be back, its better, also because there are a lot of interesting discussions

Or renderdev.org (like gamedev etc...), by example

I like renderdev as a backup option.
I've been looking into options to try and scrape the old forum pages. There is a tool called warrick, but it's not currently working and Google apparently will blacklist you if it thinks you are doing automated queries of it's cache. It sounds like it may be available again soon though (and hopefully in a form that google won't ban).
As an alternative we may be able to modify the code here to pull data for the forums (please ignore the spammy looking URL):

oops, I just noticed that Jacco has a whole topic devoted to Warrick. Guess we should move discussion there.

Thanks for creating this forum, Jakko. It's great how the community is reforming (like molten T1000 after freezing in liquid nitrogen and shattering).
I too would like to see an easier to remember name for accessing the board. Maybe we can take a poll?
as they are all easier to remember than current one
ompf.conesoft.net is better too, thanks daverperman. I will gladly chip in for new domain. Can you pay several years in advance?
