It's a throw back to the forum that originally had an online exiles hidden forum which I was a member of. When that closed I opened a free forum from forumotion. Then I was offered free space on a server and one of the admins from one ot the other forums on the server set me up a forum using free software. I paid for the domain and the independent Online Exiles forum went live yesterday
Ta muchly, you're most welcome to join. Thankfully, I managed to acquire the services of the other forum admin, (the one who created mine) to come on board as techy admin. As he has full access to the server, it made sense as I have no idea on the technical side of things. I know I created the forumotion forum, but that's designed with the low intelligence admin (me) in mind.
A lot of the guys have been banned from other forums for voicing their opinions too strongly, on my forum, we positively encourage it and the members love it. because it's no holds barred to a certain extent, they don't go over the top.
