Sometime ago someone posted a link to another computer forum,
which catered for computers (some vintage & some newer ones
Amigas I think). The poster stated their Forum had being going
for quite a while. Can you find the link Erik?

My purpose isn't to move onto new Forums, but just build a
collection of sites & post announcements there (to others)!

I've tried searching Introductions, Links, General Discussions.
I believe this was posted sometime back (maybe over 12
months).

Cheers,
CP/M User.

I'm not sure of the Amiga part, but Tom Carlson has had a helpline running at his site for some time: http://www.obsoletecomputermuseum.org/

Was that it?

No, sorry, it wasn't that site. The site I saw was just like
this forum (except at the time he said they had been going
for a bit longer & had more people registered to it. The
maintaineer just happened to stumble across this forum &
posted a message here (somewhere). He was saying
something (I think) along the lines of maybe creating a Ring
between forums, or just telling people to feel free to stop
by & have a chat! :-)

Initially I thought they might of posted the message in Links
(since they provided a link to their site - which I went to), but
I couldn't find anything there.

Cheers,
CP/M User.

I think you mean Retrochat, a.k.a. Killer Gamers and later merged with Moe's site into MT2Arcade. It is available at:

http://mt2.fs-uk.com

However, its community is very gaming oriented, and although they keep some retro sections, they are mostly there for nostalgic reasons. MT2 has a vast collection of Flash games (currently playable for free), if you like to play some games.

Another site worth mentioning might be Micro Mart:

http://www.micromart.co.uk/

It looks like a retailer/magazine site, but they have a forum with various topics of which retro (home) computing is one.

Any of these ring a bell?
