Welcome to the new QMX Forum.
Due to ongoing issues with the previous Forum up/down time, and the complexity and difficulty level of installing and maintaining a Discourse Forum, we have switched to a different platform called Flarum. Along with this, the QMX Forum is currently hosted with FreeFlarum, which as the name implies, is "free". This host so far has a good record for speed, and more importantly, uptime.
New as in "Simple", but not as feature-rich, yet
Flarum is similar in appearance and operation to a Discourse forum in terms of the end-user experience, but it is far simpler to deploy and manage. In fact, with FreeFlarum, all the installation and setup is done automatically, except for choosing the Flarum Extensions you want to use in the Forum. Flarum is still a fairly new platform and continues to grow rapidly (there are several Extensions for it already), but it might be missing certain features you are used to seeing, and it currently has no migration tools. Because of this, there is almost no methods available to import Users and Posts into Flarum from Discourse.
We manually re-posted the most important Topics from the old forum to the new forum, however, it is required that you re-register on the new QMX Flarum forum. Sorry about that. 😉
