This was just finishing some leftover work, and it's intended to be the last update for the board.
The forum has more than enough functionality for the users and staff at this point, and everything is stable so there's nothing left that really needs to be done. So any further updates that were previously planned for the forum and the chat have been cancelled.
While the chat never got the channel and private msg system, I don't feel that there's a need for it anymore. And other services are more suited towards private discussion, such as Discord which took off in recent years and is commonly used for both of these things.
There have also always been many instant messaging alternatives out there for chatting privately with others, and it's better to rely on more secure and reliable services that are certain to stand the test of time, instead of user run services for that type of thing.
However always remember to keep backups of any important information or discussions, and to maintain multiple means of contact with people. As sometimes people lose access to things, and nothing is guaranteed to last forever, as has been shown with many big services shutting down before.
Going forward I've decided to take a step away from many things, and to concentrate more on other areas of life. I hope that the existence of the forum and chat, and all of the updates that I had done over the years has and continues to be of use to you all.
