So, I've set up a barebones "shitty phpbb forum or w/e they are" of which there apparently already are millions out there. In case Biggles really does full-scale rage-quit and "kuwait teh intahnetz 4eva" and go on a big gay adventure with Algy and Ginger down under, then at least there's something other than ... *shiver* digg or reddit. Nothing amazing, but it's better than nothing, and a fuckload better than digg.
Still not all set up with the rules, faq, and so on, but it's pretty much the same as TAN, but I'll write something a little more detailed: basic rules, what is safe/unsafe, what mods/admins can do and when, etc. Rules that are good to have written down just in case. It also has very basic forums, if you want more you'll need to come up with some ideas, what you want, what could be useful, etc. This isn't a one-sided affair
Anyway, it's supposed to be a backup and emergency plan, so for now it's maybe a little unnecessary to try and make a full set of forums equivalent to TAN.
Registration is open but requires a working email, I highly suggest you use something anonymised, gmx, hushmail, yahoo, google, whatever.
I did think of a few other names, like Pinky, tiTANic, or something — something appropriate for the crazies of TAN — not that it's set it stone or anything. Dot.tk domains are free, so it's easy to change.
Hopefully Biggles isn't as Tory as he says he is, and TAN will go on for at least another 6 months.The Gates
