    Fixing all the old links

    The urls to forum posts on the old forum used to be
    but now they are

    The only difference is the /forum directory has to be removed from the urls. Any urls will then point back to their original threads.

    There are tons and tons of links all over the internet, in forum signatures, blog posts, art websites, and all their links to threads are broken.
    I'm mentioning this because:
    1) for anyone who has an old broken link, you can always fix it just by removing the /forums part, the rest of the url is identical.
    2) for anyone clicking a broken link (like in people's signatures here) you can fix it by just removing the /forums part

    3) I don't know the actual way to do this, but there must be a way for the web-support guys to set it up so that all links going to /forum go to the right directory instead? Maybe the forums could even be moved to their old directory?

    Painting depends on your state of mind and everything affects your state of mind. Use music, food, your workspace, your relationships and your intention to your advantage. Create an ecosystem of creativity for yourself.

    [...] what concerns us here is not imagination itself, but rather creative imagination; the faculty that helps us pass from the level of conception to the level of realization.
    - Igor Stravinsky, The Poetics of Music

    The links are being fixed. That's why the forum slows done every now and then. Hopefully that will also fix any missing attachments as well at the same time.
