The move from the old forum seems to have gone very smoothly, most members seem to have settled in here and it seems new posts there have just about stopped. So it seems sensible to close it down to new replies within the next week or so.
Don't forget, of course, that there's nothing to stop anyone quoting from a thread on the old forum and using it to start a thread on here.
Anyone foresee any problems in doing this final closure? (It will mean the old forum remains visible, but that no new messages or replies can be added.)
