This Forum Will Continue!

Postby Blemished on Fri Sep 20, 2013 1:06 pm

Dear All

First of all, apologies for the forum's disruption in recent days. As many of you will know, the previous server was being de-commisioned. Blood Of A Poet (the forum's founder and builder along with SIlver Moon - a great family team!), Dizrythmia and myself have been working to move the site onto a new platform. That work is now completed. The forum will continue! :D

Some posts from recent days have been lost - many apologies for this - although I hope that securing the site's future will compensate for the annoyance this may cause. However, I did make a text copy of the posts this morning and will put them up ASAP.

I wanted to say a huge thank you to Blood Of A Poet and Silver Moon for creating and nurturing this site. Behind the scenes, BOAP has had to deal with far more hassle around servers, backups etc than you can imagine. Also, Dizryhthmia has put in a huge effort to secure the site's future too. Thank you!

I hope we can all continue to enjoy lively and friendly debates, discussion and sharing of news regarding the music we (mostly) love and its creators.

Finally, if there are technical glitches, please let me know. I will endeavour to resolve them as soon as possible. Similarly, if anyone has views on the site and content, feel free to PM.

Best wishes

Great news - many thanks to the site managers of the past, and to Blemished for securing its future.

Your commitment is truly appreciated.

I'm very pleased this forum will be kept going, under 'new management' :wink:

Best of luck, and here's hoping there will be things of interest from DS to make it worthwhile for all concerned.

And sorry about the avatars that have disappeared - not sure how that happened - and can't them anywhere on the server.

So please upload them again if you're missing them!

Glad to hear! I haven't been around in a long time, but I still think about the forum and had hoped it was still going strong.

Gentlemen,
Thank you so much for keeping this forum active. Merely judging from the appearance of the revised banner, I believe this website is in very good hands and will be moving forward in a positive direction.
thanks again,
