I am a retired school teacher. I still maintain a website that I used back in the day. It contains a commercial Xenforo based discussion forum that has been dormant since I retired. I have maintained the site and and the discussion forum software. It is operational, secure and up to date.
If you would be interested in a private discussion area dedicated to your beta test I could set that up for you. You would be the moderator and no one would be allowed to access the area without your permission.
There would be no cost involved. I keep it for nostalgic reasons and may use it again sometime in the future.
If interested, send me a private message.
PS. I have no intention to step on this forum’s administrators. If they would like to facilitate the service or feel that this offer is improper, it will be withdrawn. Thank you.
