Life Forge Forums

Hello denizens of Life Forge,

I wished to inform you all of the team's intention to revitalize the forums. If you haven't noticed already basic cleaning of posts that were ill-suited to the community have been removed and the update logs have been posted here. In addition, some behind the scenes work has also been completed which has streamlined a few items.

I would like to request those who stumble across content that is inappropriate to the community to report such. It will be personally reviewed and dealt with. Also, those who have suggestions or ideas on what the forums could become are highly welcome to share those thoughts. Please do so as a reply to this suggestion form.

Thank you for your time,
Blue
