Old IRC URL in the forum sidebar

Post by naglis »

Hello,

in the forum's sidebar menu, the IRC links under SUPPORT / IRC and DEVELOPMENT / IRC still point to the Freenode server. I guess these are managed separately from https://github.com/musicPlayerDaemon/website.

Thanks ... yes, the navigation in the forum is an ugly kludge. Somebody who thought a forum was important set it up like 10 years ago, and was never seen again. I never thought a forum was important, I hate web forums, but now it's up to me to maintain it, *sigh*
Since I spend a good amount of time every day deleting forum spam, I have been thinking about deleting the forum... and this problem doesn't need to be fixed then.

I totally understand not wanting to maintain it. If you do decide to delete the forum, would it be possible to setup a redirect to a https://web.archive.org/ snapshot so as not to increase linkrot?

That's a good idea.
