I think I signed up for an account as the forum here was dying, alas, and Facebook taking up everyone's time. I'd love to help bring it back! :)

Oh I am ALL over this. Bring back secure, non-trolly, real-ass conversation.

The feeling that you know the folks you converse with.

The ability to actually maintain some sense of real community.

Oh thank you thank you for a small resurgence of the internet I knew <3

Never really used facebook much anyway!So many fond memories of this place. I had checked back a few times but was always disappointed that there wasn't much conversation happening. So glad to see a few people returned. Here's hoping for a revival of the Box. It will probably make it easier, if people can actually access a mobile version of it. I know there are apps that can handle fora reformatting for mobile, but will have to look more into it.

Marjolien has already mentioned that Tapatalk is capable of accessing the sbox (this forum), once the admins add the ability to allow that access.

It be useful to know of others.

Quite a few fans who have tried to register for a new account got a database error.

Hayley has noted on Twitter that Team AFP is aware of the problem & is working on it.
(Not clear to me it's everyone who has tried to get an account since Amanda's tweet. 
If you have opened a new account since Amanda's tweet annoucning this thread
,
please comment.  It's useful info in understanding a software problem like this.)

Those of us with accounts working can start bringing this place alive again with new topics.
Though I'm very eager for new sboxers to ring their spirits here.

(btw, i'm neither an admin nor a mod here on the sbox.  Just a very deciated fan & poster who has used computers for a half century.  Also written & fixed software almost that long.)

Tapatalk is quite common amongst other places as well, so I imagine it'd work well here. I'll give it a go, although I prefer logging in from my computer.
