Nobody here should tell you what you should or should not post/who you should or should not 'invite'...i'll just add this in here as my personal opinion...

It is important that this forum crafts in time its own identity - not just be seen as a breakaway of atu2 or a place where people who may feel they have axes to grind about elsewhere can grind them.

The past is the past and whatever has gone on over on atu2 in the past has no real bearing on what will happen on here (forum friendships and an interest in u2 being obvious exceptions).....

The view of the mods here in my view  is that we should show atu2 and the people who do and have run it the respect it and they absolutely deserve.

There has been a reaching out respectfully asking if it is ok to 'point out this place exists' over on atu2 to the admin there - if they say yes then il_capo or tiger will post something on that forum - if it isn't something they want to allow then that decision will be respected totally.

This place is an exciting new place and it will take time to build the community here - I would like to think we can all build it with its own distinct identity as a place where people want to engage and spend time - with the emphasis on u2 and the future in an environment full of respect, civility, fun and open thought provoking discourse.....

All are welcome.

Anyone else getting Friday Night Lights season 4 vibes?  The new school on the other side of town with about half of the personnel and players making the move.

One mod mentioned this forum (not by name). I do not know him well, but he seemed very disappointed, or so. I hope he'll be OK. For me it would be nice if he joins.

The @U2 mods already know about this site and are not deleting posts on @U2 that refer to it so I think they’re good.

I'd be surprised it a few of the mods didn't come over here.  A few of the recent additions to the mods were previously big forum participants.  Or maybe they signed a contracts forbidding them  ;D

Indeed Hawkmoon has wished us the very best for this new venture.  I do hope he joins as he's a great contributor

I very much doubt he banned you.  I am pretty sure it was one of the other 3.  Hawk is, however, admirably loyal to his team and any decision they make.

Couldn't this site make a point of banning only former mods who join?  Not a serious comment but would be funny.  I know they went a little crazy with their bans but a few of them i has happy to see take place.

Banter aside an invitation to join here has been extended to all the team over at the atu2 forum and i for one would be happy to see some or all of them accept.
