Will area 51 be closed down?

Post by asinshesq »

Now that phpbb.com is running olympus, is there any reason to maintain this separate website. I for one find it pretty confusing to have two separate places where olympus is getting discussed. I therefor think it would be a good idea to migrate the area 51 posts over to phpbb.com and close down area 51. What do others think?

Just one word: phpBB3.2.
Once phpBB3 is gold, there will be no reason to discuss it here.
But "bleeding edge developmental code" won't cease its existence in that moment... ;)

It would probably be that phpBB 3.2 project will be in the thinking soon after phpBB 3.0 goes gold. So what I think is that Area51 will still be up.
hmm....

They won’t close area51 down... it’s still the testing ground... phpBB.com cannot be a complete testing ground.
Although, it is to some extent... testing the new proSilver style.
But area51 is still the main testing board.

Yup, as soon as 3.0 goes gold, we can start demanding 3.2, asking why it's taking so long etc ;)

Did someone mention phpBB4?

Just when do we expect to see it?

Are they going to release the Beta soon?

LOL
