A large part of the issue revolved around the uncertainty behind FF's unfortunate shutdown way back, coupled with the fact that the Fh2 team was concerned about the loss of past forum postings and having little to no control over their own Fh2 domain. (we used to account for a buttload of the traffic here, with little to no recognition of that fact) Some of those fears became reality, but in my opinion the transition wasn't necessary and especially now that the Fh2 forum has been down since October 25, my opposition to the forum transfer has been validated. My latest info was ""soon"" about restoring fhpubforum.warumdarum.de but I am holding my breath...
We must start the process of wooing. And by wooing I mean the crew that posts in that dark place...
So now that it seems like the warumdarum forums will be down forevah why dont we.... come back? O_o

Yes, do so! I miss the FH brand of silliness.
There is still no news on the fate of the public forums. In case people are wondering, the private forums went down too, though testing did continue (so this downtime will hopefully not impact progress to the next patch all that much).
When the forums do go back up, I will be sure to make a post here. If you want to stay ahead of the game, your best bet is irc://irc.gamesurge.net/fhmod.
BREAKING NEWS - forums back up.
That is all.
I haven't played this game is so long. How is the community? Still going strong? Anything new in the works?
There is still a pretty reasonable community I'd say. Usually enough to fill at least one server per euro evening I think (though I'm not quite up to date on that statistic). Generally just waiting for the next patch (as ever), which will have some pretty nice stuff in it (though little of that stuff has reached news updates yet so I can't say much more). There is the Eastern Front in long term development too.
These boards are still somewhat active wow. New forums aren't the same but you can't always get what you want.
Holy cow I love how my old login details are still so easily accessed from memory. XD This forum still feels more open than warum. I also had a lot more fun on these boards, though that might be purely nostalgia...
