There was a poll run a while ago looking at the future of Patrol4x4 for the next few years. The thread is here: viewtopic.php?f=36&t=8131
After much discussion and similar, the net outcome was that the forum would continue in exactly the same fashion as it always has. The only difference being the fact that I would assume responsibility for the infrastructure and the domain.
That said, the new infrastructure is up and running, and we are looking at migrating the forum on Thursday afternoon / evening.
Apologies in advance for any inconveniences, but the process should run relatively smoothly.
