    Not too long ago, not long after I stopped just lurking here in fact, the DelftShip forums just kinda up and disappeared. Or at least they did for me. A number of different things, such as sample models that people had uploaded, likewise went walk about for a time but have since come back online.

    Does anyone know what the status is for those forums? Have they been moved to some other site than the DelftShip webpages?

    Looks like they have started a new forum from scratch, with a new forum engine (Kunena). Pretty odd that they didn't manage to migrate the old messages to the new platform.

    Thanks, Slavi.
    I couldn't see how to get to the forums from the front page. None of the tabs at the top of the page seem to lead there.

    I hope they sort out the new site soon, and that they start replying to emails.
    I have some features I would like to add to Flotilla that will make it easier to
    use for Delftship users, but I can't get an answer to my questions. Very
    frustrating!

    Thanks guys. Maybe they are still in the process of moving stuff about. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

    Unfortunately there are 0 registered users and no way to register. Accounts weren't carried over either.
