Someone from OSBA (I'm not sure who it was) told me about it after OSBA collapsed.

I actually wasn't keeping very close track of OSBA. One day, I checked it, and it was closed, so I just googled around.

I was an OSBA member. I joined it in about May 2006 but it collapsed in August
Then I heard that Andy will rebuild another forum so I sit and wait until Andy "officially" launch it...

I was searching for betas in Google, and came across JoeJoe.org. I wasn't particularly interested at the time, but i saw some members talking about this place, came here and was far more interested...

Apparently when Glenda closed, TEH SHAD was going to make some OSBA Archives, some publicly browsable thing. Well, when he begged for donations for it, nobody seemed to give a [censored].

So I'd say if there was to be a true successor, that'd be it.

Well BA started up less than 24 hours after OSBA closed IIRC. We are the "official" new OSBA in a way when you think about it.

Um, no.

The only way you could be the official successor would be to get the old admins approval. And I can't see that happening, since TEH SHAD has/had his own plans with the old database.
