Welcome to the new BO2K forums.
It was necessary to move the forum because it wasn't being maintained and also it was impossible to send out authentication emails automatically because sourceforge had removed its CRON support. If authentication was removed the board would have been overwhelmed by spam bots. The old forum will be left up as an archive as it contains a wealth of information for newbs as well as advanced users.
I have no intention of any further development on BO2K at this time (that may change) but I will stop by to answer any questions that may appear here.
Log on to this forum is only possible by joining the sourceforge site (so far as I know, I am still reading about all this).
