This is a brand new, and neutral site, that ultimately takes the place of AGN forums for all future official ZC development, news, and discussion. The main website focuses on the present, open nature of ZC, and its assets; while the forums primarily focused on ZC itself.
If you are looking for another venue to meet people, to have goo conversations, and to discuss the software in any regard, please feel welcome to sign up there. The forum uses the most recent version of phpBB, so it isn't running on outdate or insecure software.
The host is very fast, and the forum allows attaching files direct to posts (hosted locally), which is useful for help topics, quest discussion, bug reports, and development topics.
While the intent here is to provide a new website and forum for current, and for future, users of ZC, we do not intend to kill the AGN forums, so if you are a member there, you have nothing to worry about. This simply splits ZC itself into its own entity for forum support, and it is managed by the ZC Development team, not the AGN staff, so it is entirely its own entity in regard to staff and policy.
Those of us running the site intend to remain strictly neutral with regard to current socio-political issues, and will not take sides officially in any such melodrama. The service exists to support a software userbase, and we plead with you to leave any grievances that you may have with members here or elsewhere, in another context. They have no place on a clean and open forum.
In the same light, we do not intend to attempt to supplant, or to replace PZC with this service. OpenZC is merely an alternative, and a place where we hope, that all users will fell welcome, and receive the services and support that they need from using our product. We welcome you to join us.
