I'm kinda curious about the history of the forums. I think this is the first post ever on modern day JGO (http://www.java-gaming.org/topics/welcome-to-the-new-forum/2/msg/2/view.html) but looking at that thread tells me that there was a different JGO before this one? Riven or any old member, could you shine some light on this?

Also, it looks like ChrisM used to be the owner before he gave it to Riven.

I started the forum in 2001, ran it until 2010 and was able to get the rights from Oracle and gift it to the community. Riven has been a exceptional forum manager and this community will always hold a special place in my heart Smiley

If I may, what issues was there between this community forum and Oracle?

None, other than they acquired all of Sun's assets and this was one of them. Oracle granted me the URL and permissions around the community. I transferred them to Riven and the community.

You should post more often, it's nice to have the original owner back, unlike that dodgy Riven character! :p

Awwww...you guys are making me smile here! Riven, you have done such an amazing job in building out the forums and maintaining the community. Hard to believe that I started down this path in 1998...leading to JGO in 2001. Thank you, and to all of the members of this community, that have worked to keep it growing Smiley
