Hmm...I wonder what is going on??

I just accidently went to the old site, and the home page is up again, but the forum isn't working. Though the error page has changed.

Are epiphanysolutions the owners? Wonder what they are up too!

That is odd, this could get very confusing for many people if they return with the forum. I know for one I'm staying here.

There was always the possibility that the new owners (Epiphany) would get around to putting the forum up again.

I guess it will be an individual choice around whether to go back or what action you want to take in relation to your posts that are over there.

As we have outlined previously, the fact that the forum went down was not the only issue that we had over an extended period of time so we will be continuing on here now that we have the site set up (still with lots to do but functioning at least).

Well if we're all over here then I dont see the point much in switching. Though the old forum with new owner might have something different, but I'm not sure what.

And at least we're stable here. We wont vanish again, will we?

Absolutely no intention to vanish again! And if there is going to be a problem, then we will know what and why! A big improvement.

Very odd. I tried just now and got a 404 error message and the detail that I'm not allowed to access the old forum.
I certainly wouldn't go back, but if it does go back up, might be worth copying and pasting the stuff we need from it and bringing it here... unless that's against the law?

I don't know where we would stand. I would think that there wouldn't be a problem copying and pasting our own stuff, but I am not sure about posts by others.

How strange. Is it one of those 'twilight zones' do you think?! :p :D I can't see that there would be any harm in copying anything that you yourself have written. I suppose permission would be needed for anyone else's. It'll be handy to copy of those lists of the books of the month, etc, won't it.

I dont remember Epiphany. what did her avatar look like? Did she post a lot because Id ont remember. Personally, I want mods and admins who post on the forum every day to keep an eye out on what is going on. spamers etc. So far thats happening and thats what I like. You need people who are interactive.

Epiphany Solutions is the name of the newest owner. They never posted at all.
