When I posted a thread telling about the new one, it was deleted within minutes, but not before Ellenjane found us again. My suggestion is that everybody go edit their last posts on all the threads to give the info on the new forum. I wouldn't use the link function; makes it too easy for the old forum owners to track the posts and erase them.

I can still access it. Maybe worth waiting for a while before posting a link to the new site again, as I see your post has been removed, Misfit.

Didn't take very long did it? I was going to delete my old reviews as I have them on Amazon but apparently you can't.

I was able to delete one of my reviews by using "Edit Post." That may be because I was a moderator, though.

okay, try this, those of you with signatures: I changed mine to 'now posting at historicalfictiononline.com' and every post I've ever had a signature on now reflects the change.

Unfortunately, those who don't have signatures can't create one and have the pre-signatue posts updated.

Good suggestion. Should we PM members we haven't seen migrate over here?
