to each their own, i totally disagree but if it worked that way for you or others, great, there are plenty of options now

the old forums might as well have become a cancer, for me

Puppy Linux w/o John Murga Forum
i'm not convinced jm and PL is done at all, perhaps with credibility by some

and i'm not even clear on the main point of your first post,

looks like a buncha stuff going on for me

not to mention the title is little more than an assumption,

i could just as easily start a topic titled, puppy linux w/o puppyite, or jonyo lol

or just put any name in there, reminds me very much of old stuff that prob doesn't even belong in these forums in the first place

the beauty of these forums is others make decisions and they are on the ball imo,

or from what i've seen so far

I'm willing to contact repositories and see what it takes to be authorized to upload files.

If that’s possible then Puppy Linux users won’t be up the creek like they are now because a forum disappears.

well.. i like to stick to basics and understood the 'eggs in a basket' awhile ago,

as well as accountability,

also good to know who might be in charge and taking care of biz,

otherwise, whatever

not to mention it is already offered by others, who have their act together,

or a least fundamentals in place,

easy as possible is the key

My point is the current system is anything BUT reliable. What I propossed in the OP offers the best of all worlds - once in place it would mean no Puppy Linux user would ever have to worry about forum outages, files would always be available for download regardless.

there's no such thing where chaos is promoted, the options are, work with what is there, do what you can and the easiest is just moving on

I think you misunderstand my meaning but that’s OK. If I can bring it off Puppy Linux will be free of it’s current severe forum dependency issues- as in no forum equals no Puppy Linux.

If the status quo continues Puppy Linux will be forever at risk of sudden death from forum withdrawal.
