This subforum was created as part of the preparations for the forum changes.

However, I believe they contain valuable contributions, including observations, suggestions, and considerations.

Will they still be here after the change, or will they be lost?

I hope so.

But since adobe is taking over I wouldn't be surprised if they banned such groups. Would want the washed or unwashed masses telling them what to do.

> But since adobe is taking over

What does that mean? Adobe is not taking over ... they have always run the place.

I always thought they owned the server, and and provided the space like all other major computer companies, I assumed the Maintenance of the Software and groups was up to outside people (the users of the groups), and the company washed their hands of any involvement.

I thought that adobe buying the software and forcing it down our throats, meant they were taking over everything so that they could control everything even possible censoring opinions that don't necessarily put Adobe in a good light. In other words stifling free thought.

Jacob, I retake your question after this harsh and unnecessary interruption.

My understanding is that everything that has been posted in the trial forums will be deleted later today. This particular discussion is not in any trialforum but housed in a normal adobeforums.com thread, and should therefore survive the change.

We were always warned that posts in the trial forums would eventually disappear.

John C is an Adobe Employee and has been pulling the strings all these years, working with the developers of the WebX software to get it set up and tweaked to our liking. The servers are hosted by the WebX group, primarily so their pro's are available 24/7 to keep an eye on them and give them a kick-start as needed.

When Macromedia became part of Adobe, a lot more players became involved in the forums and it's more of a group effort now then just John's show. But it is Adobe employees that call the shots rather then the software hosting company... but, they are all working together on it.

To the initial question, I have to say... I don't know for absolute certain, but I think they will be pulled along with the rest of the content.

To answer the question regarding whether the content here will be brought over - yes. All content up until the time that the Forums will be closed (today at 3pm Pacific time) will be part of the import into the new system.

It's really up to Jacob to clarify this, but I think that he was specificlly asking about what has been posted in the trial forums. And over there one can still read this:

>You are viewing a preview of the new Adobe Forums and we welcome your feedback. Please note that this is not a live forum area and any content posted here will be deleted at the end of the preview. If you are looking for assistance, please see our support program options or browse our current forums.

As a matter of fact, I have just copied and pasted the above text.

Then it was me who first gave you the answer, Jacob. But of course we know that nobody reads post #4! XD

Right you are, Claudio, but I wondered after reading post #9.

Less than six hours to go.

It was not intend as such. If Jacob, is an employee then my apologies. But Forums I run into are not run by companies but just have spaced provided for them to keep customers out of their hair after the warranty is out.

My Apologies.
