AutoHotkey.net domain name has expired

19 May 2017, 02:32

I just noticed that the http://autohotkey.net/ domain has expired. Just wondering if this was planned and the server attached to this domain is no more. I only mention it because there are still quite a few old forum links to this domain. In any case, it might be something we might want register just to keep it away from unscrupulous use.

poly planned on killing it in 2015 (july?). he made a topic or two about it. Probably forgot to turn off the auto-renew. People had a couple year warning + a couple year "forgot" period to move anything over (what little remained after the 'attack').

But yeah, the name is nice.

Yes. This was originally posted in Off Topic. I suggested moving it, and it looks like someone did, without making any note.

Sorry I thought it was obvious that it had been moved as your comment suggested it was in offtopic and now it isn't anymore.

I still highly think we need a GENERAL AUTOHOTKEY section. It'd avoid confusion that the OP might have had.
and in the first 2 pages of Offtopic, there's atleast 13 topics that'd fit in the GENERAL AUTOHOTKEY section. Probably more. Some would fit fine in both areas.

Talking about ahk in an ahk forum isn't offtopic. but there's no general place to place most ahk related topics (besides AFH and S&F).

Yeah back to this old issue, collaboration forums and whatnot:

New forum sections proposal. - AutoHotkey Community
https://autohotkey.com/boards/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=7060

Btw the poll options on that page are slightly misleading, perhaps read some of the other posts there and/or my posts for a summary.

[EDIT:] Collaboration, general AutoHotkey/splitting up 'Offtopic' and other forum ideas.

imo, a "collaboration" section would be used less correctly. People would probably ask for help with a task there instead of in AFH. or they would ask for a person or two to help so they don't have to do the work (laziness or they don't know how, just want quick help). It'd probably turn into one of the many topics we get: "somebody help me make this" *clicks topic* "oh, he has nothing, he literally means 'do it for me' just worded differently"

But then there has to be people willing to work as a team. There will be some, but probably not a lot. My guess is it'll be the same handful of pros/forum regulars willing to work together. And maaaybe a few small groups of new people (which has a pretty good chance of turning out like mentioned above. "do this for me". Thats how a lot of topics we get are, aswell as on irc and probably discord).

but this is getting offtopic now.

We were too late and with this. Now we need to change all the links in the backup forum, or shut it down.
That is unless we want to provide some potentially malicous sites with visitors from our forums.

Well I'm no expert but if somebody else already got the domain, how are we going to get it back?
( It now redirects somewhere when I navigate there )
