New Forum address and logo


Recommended Posts




While transitioning to the new server, it became apparent that we should also make the move to a new domain name so that the forum will be able to stand on its own. The new forum domain name is going to be http://www.bladesmithsforum.com There will be a new logo to appropriately reflect these changes.



1 – The new forum URL is in addition to, not an immediate replacement for, the URL http://forums.dfoggknives.com




2 – The next year will be a transition period to allow search engines and other sites to map links to the forum using the new domain. So, forum members that link to the forum from their websites should update their links in the next year.




3 – Any old thread may be accessed via the new domain, even if it was created under the old one. For example, if you wanted to link to my Long Saex topic, you can link to it


like this: http://www.bladesmithsforum.com/index.php?showtopic=15543&st=0&p=144618&fromsearch=1entry144618


or like this http://www.bladesmithsforum.com/index.php?showtopic=15543&st=0&p=144618&fromsearch=1entry144618


This is an important move to insure the long term viability of this resource. The forum represents a community and it has earned its reputation as a rich resource for the craft, as well as a place where folks can meet with mutual respect and consideration. I am proud to have been involved with its development and am grateful to be able to turn it over to such thoughtful and hardworking folks that are on the committee now. Special thanks to Dave Stephens who has provided wise leadership and amazingly generous financial support. Well done and thank you.
