Apologies if this is not regarded as suitable for MO, but I have noticed other “soft” questions and feel this deserves some attention by the community, and did not know where else this could be asked.
According to the Closure announcement of the Math2.0 Forum:
It is with a little regret that I am announcing the closure of this forum.
Not a lot has happened here recently, and discussion has largely ceased. Rather than let it drag on as a “graveyard on the internet”, I have decided to close it.
(I will also shortly be giving up the VPS on which this resides, so if anyone is willing to host a flat copy of the forum for archival purposes, please get in touch.)
However, the very reason “the discussion may have largely ceased”, maybe the apparently dysfunctional registration facility, that simply does not let any new user join the discussion.
Naturally, this makes it impossible for me to post anything on that forum.
The Math2.0 Forum contains numerous important contributions by the community on the subject of mathematics journals, peer review, open access in publishing of mathematics research, and its current ongoing crisis. With links to other important contributions that would be otherwise hard to find.
I find these discussions important to be preserved for future generations, who will be facing the same problems as described in the posts (most of which are still largely present). Despite of the ongoing Open Access movement getting increasing traction, there seem to be few if any active forums on the subject, specifically related to mathematics publishing.
Furthermore, many websites worldwide are linking to this Forum, including answers from MO, for instance see this or this answer. I think it would harmful for people following those links to find them broken. Even if the content were be hosted elsewhere, the links would still be broken.
So my question is, whether anything can be done to “unlock” this forum for new users and perhaps give it some chance to become active again?
