I totally support Kane and Company's decision to NOT agree w/ the new TOS.
As someone who writes short stories and poetry - well, nowhere like he used to - in his spare time, I would not be a happy camper if I actually posted all kinds of creative works and suddenly ProBoards has all the rights in the world to do what they want w/ it w/out my consent. And I don't think artists who freely post their creative works want to be involved w/ such a new TOS that basically allows such matters, either.
So, keep me posted on the move and all of that jazz.
Steve, Fille or I: "What do you think of insert-host-here?"
Fille, Steve or myself: choose one (Or sometimes several) of: * ToS does not allow hotlinking (IE the Art & Lit forum here on Chaos). * Has limited posts per day, the number of which it can change any time it likes. * Pop up ads randomly occur throughout every post (A personal favourite! ;D) * ToS is so poorly written as to be incomprehensible * ToS reserves the right to ban or unban forum members at will with the forum runner getting no say. * Forums are filled with spam (Oh what fun THAT would be!)
I could continue this list for a while, but you get the idea. Suffice to say that the process of finding a new host is by no means as easy as we had hoped. But we ARE on it.
When you post and interact on Yuku, you do so via one (or more if you feel so inclined) Profile, which is the equivalent of a subscription entity in regards of the different communities there. (Because there are a ton... And I'm sure that if you dig around their directory you'll happen on forums from sites you know or heard about.)
What the hell?!!!! I go into hiding for a few months to come back and find everything has gone Pete Tong!!!! I'm totallyconfused.com now!!! Transfering of profiles over to the new place is being done? Is in the process of being done? We have to do it ourselves? HELP ME!!!!!! I so don't get this!!! I need to sleep!
As you travel through life, your dreams will guide you, determination will get you there, and love will provide the greatest scenery of all.

Can I suggest that you keep the general forum writable by all, but change the posting restrictions to the other forums to something that can't be written to, so that if pro-boards ever introduces a "we will delete inactive boards" policy we can occasionally post to keep this board active.
