It's a thing you non-mods don't know about yet ... but, as I'm guessing that this won't happen anyway here's a small summary:
- Gimper (site admin) left a long time ago.
- He sold the site to another guy.
- That guy left as well
- Repeat step 2 and 3 a few times
- New Gimper comes along around October '11 and gives us mods an overview about his plans for the new gimper.net: he wants to change the forum completely (I won't tell anything else here) and a discussion begins. This is probably what vT was referring to.
There's some more stuff but it's a mod/admin thing so sorry
