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.

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.

Tapatalk wasn't communicating with this forum, when i installed & configured it a few days ago.  Might be working now ...

Wow, it's weird to view The Box from my iPhone. Remember when you used to have to sit at a special Internetting station in your apartment, in front of an old tube desktop monitor???

I do often lurk here sometimes, (hence coming across this post now) but it's like looking at old photographs. so many of my teenage years were spent on here and I've met so many great friends on here that I am still in touch with.  I do miss those days.  This forum was very important during my confusing angry teenage years.  I do cringe when I come across one of my old posts.  But it's nice to know there is this place still existing that I can look back on, even if it is me ranting about some guy who didn't love me back.  But there was always something willing to listen and keep me company...and i guess (in a non-profound way!) help me shape me as the person I am today.

BUT YES.  LETS BRING THIS BITCH BACK IN 2018!

Happy Holidays everyone! and hello old/new members (friends)

Well, they're trying to join. There were roughly 150 pending requests for forum membership accounts going back to August. I decided that 4 of them seemed like real ppl, and approved their requests; the rest got flushed.

Len, do you have the skills (or at least know someone who does) to create a Shadowbox app?

Let people tap the little icon on phone or tablet, and connect instantly to the discussion... 
Notifications on or off when people post in threads you're following....
Streamline PM function.
Other stuff.

Seems like that would be close to your skill-set, no?
