The recent archiving of the forums is very unfortunate. I have only recently created an account and have asked some questions, but it has been a home to me for many years. The minecraft forum has saved me an incredible amount of time from reading questions. For this reason, I am using my years of experience with web development to program a Minecraft Forum. I am currently more than half way done with this, and will continue to keep working on it. Feel free to ask me questions about this. I will keep you all updated as to my progress!
I wouldn't bother unless you understand personally identifiable information and the general data protection regulation. I still bet $50 this is the real reason they are closing the forums.
