Our LCO has posted some info about the status of the RL forum:

Legionnaires,

I am getting a lot feedback on the issues with Forums from BCO's from all over the world. I appreciate them taking the time to post/message about things that are not working so they can be addressed. It is important for us to be able to provide a functional Forum for our Bases and Members. It is the center of our Universe. Smile

I would like to give you all an update on this. Adam and Bruce are working on an update for the server and hopefully be in place by Summer. I know this seems like a slow process, but we need to take our time to make sure we save as much as we can and do not break more by jumping into thing too quick.

Our plan is to over the next few months create a functioning model of an upgraded platform for the Forums and work the bugs out there, before go live with it. I am not a tech person so this has been a learning curve for me as well. Once we work the bugs out of it we will upload it to the main site and it will replace our current version.

Basically we have a lot code that has been altered to make the site work and if we just update it we lose important sections like costume submission areas and a few more. I want to stress this is very time consuming work with the database management.

Another issue is with the mass mailing is the number of users we have. We have over 12,000 users on the Forum. Over the next few months Adam will begin a process to cut the number of inactive accounts that have not posted since 2013. I encourage you to pass this on to those who have not been on the Forums for a while and want to keep their accounts. We simply need to do a little housekeeping and we can gain a lot of functions back.

I appreciate our groups patience with this. I know this has been a huge issue for me as a member and Base Command. We are working to fix it, just we want to make the fix as good and workable as we can. Smile

All the best!

--Bill



So yes, you will need to actually post something on the RL forum somewhere if you haven't done so in the past couple of years to keep your account active. Logging in to the forum isn't enough. Please feel free to add a quick comment below to get it done Wink

This is only regarding keeping your forum account active so that when the Webmaster culls the list, you will still have access to the forum.

This does not affect your Rebel Legion membership status, which is what the census is for Wink
