Several community forums are not reachable

Postby rhoward » Sep 21st, '21, 02:40

Several of the forum domains appeared to have been hijacked.
Please see
https://bugs.mageia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=29478
and bring this to the attention of the sysadmins.

Why do you think those domains have been hijacked? Those domains never belonged to us (Mageia.Org) - if they are expired, then they are sold by the registrar, there's nothing we can do about that.

The forums https://forums.mageia.org page presents those forums as official
Mageia assets. If a forum is not a Mageia asset in my humble opinion it should
not have a link in that location but perhaps on the Community page under a
heading of external forums or some such.

The forum links are clearly listed under "The community" - "Forums of communities supporting Mageia". I can't nowhere find a hint that they are "official Mageia assets".

"If" they would be "official Mageia assets" they would have to follow the Mageia design/artwork guidelines. If you look at the different forums you will see that they all look different. So they are clearly community forums and no offical ones...

The subforum reads: Supporting communities forums - Forums of communities supporting Mageia...

Where does it say that those are "official" Mageia assets, as you said ?
