I asked the owner of the English forum mentioned by Orbiter (http://www.yacy-forum.org
) some time ago if it was OK for him if I moved the forum to my webspace to have more control (e.g. updates, plugins) and he agreed. Unfortunately I never found the time to make the dump (which he provided to me to) work and all I can do at the moment is to delete spam whenever I see it due to limited resources (mainly time) on my side.
I think if there was somebody who is willing to take over the English forum or at least to take good care of it, it could become a nice place again.
