This forum is for developers of Rack Extensions to discuss the RE SDK, share code, and offer tips to other developers.

Today I try go to the old developer forum on propellerheads, but find that now every time I have redirect now to developer.reasonstudios.com
Can somebody say that old dev forum is really totally closed now? 2 weeks ago I visit it and it was still been active.
Lost some actual info from this forum((

It works for me too (https://www.reasonstudios.com/forum/for ... y.php?f=31). It was mentioned a few months back that they were planning to move to a new forum and thus close this one and NOT migrate the data... so if there is really some info you want from the old forum, now is the time to copy it yourself somewhere local.

tried your link... um no... reminds me of the great and awesome book burning >when they decided to delete the prop forum years ago, removing volumes and volumes worth of books of solid info> just by hitting delete... that was when this forum started to replace the deleted forum. Seems that tendency never died. I really do not get the need to delete good information... I always thought if it is on the net> it stays on the net... the Reason Studios people proved that theory wrong. It really shows the extent that they care for the people, who have been giving them money by purchasing their products> and keeping them afloat. Perhaps they want to self implode. So be it. Clicks delete :clap:

Thank You,
by this link to the https://www.reasonstudios.com/forum/xxx, I have full access to it.
Usually I enter to it before, using link: https://www.reasonstudios.com/developer/
But now at this address started redirect..
Access to old forum is working now for me.
Old section of developer, have redirect.. If I try to go from old forum, to dev main page, redirect to actual dev zone.

So, now I just save/remember link to the forum, not old dev zone.

This link should work only for developers. It's not open to the public.

I kind of thought that could be it... but why delete what is in the forum for developers?
That seems counter productive imo. The mystery why developers are leaving seems to have bread crumbs.

How would they know if I was a developer or not>>> if I was not logged in? :?:

If you're logged in your account can be checked for having a developer flag, so it's easy for them to simply show the "Forums closed" message instead for all other accounts or not-logged-in users.

thanks that makes sense...
However I always cringe (now) when forum info gets deleted... it can be helpful to some people
I am not a developer and this does not apply to me
The cringe factory did make me comment when I saw that message
Apologizes :oops:

That forum is closing because it's running on very old software that is getting harder to support. And migrating existing posts between two completely different forum platforms is very difficult.
