Back in 2002 when we first set up BC Forums, we never really expected it would succeed - it was just a bit of a larf to be honest.
I had no experience of actually setting a forum up on a server, so we used a free ready made hosted solution called Suddenlaunch.
We used this for a month before realising that we were busier than expected, and the Suddenlaunch servers back then couldn't cope and it was painfully slow. That's when we first moved to a proper server.
The site is still alive today, though obviously closed to the public.
However, for our tenth birthday celebrations, we have decided to open it up again for one month.
You can visit the site here:
We have opened up new registrations again if anyone wants to join and post.
