    Happened a few days as well but only lasted about an hour.
    I think it's just a bandwidth problem. Not that I have any idea what that means.

    I'm not sure why it's happening but I'm so glad it's not just me. I thought I got banned. D=

    Seems to be gone again. I recall the last time someone saying they were having trouble with finances (paying the bills), however, that was never confirmed. They came back in a few days...so we will see if the do this time.

    K, so I just signed up there and what do you know? I come here and see a lot of familiar "faces". I was a little freaked. :) I thought, man, was I the one extra member that put them over their quota? LOL

    Well, hello Shawn. It is nice to see a familiar name. You were one of the first to greet me and I did figure out that I still should feel wanted. ;)

    No, I have no idea. I just miss the lounge... and the debate forums.

    Maybe, just maybe, the members too.

    Then getting caught in a thresher and torn to pieces. Then your body parts are shipped off to remote parts of the world only to have your finger end up in some old lady's chili. Yeah, I know the feeling.

    Aw, Shawn... I'm flattered to be recognized :)

    And CM/Sayso, I'm utterly flattered that you found this good enough to "borrow." :) :) :)

    Hi, Banzai :)

    Yeah, I've been in w-f.com withdrawal :)
    (My guess is that they will be back up shortly after the start of business tomorrow, Eastern Daylight Time.)

    I was just gonna lurk on this thread for news of w-f.com, but then when I saw Cornish Sayso paying me homage in her signature... :) :) :)

    I thought I had written the wrong ending of the link (.com, .net, etc.), so I tried ".org" and got a completely new website. xD Now I have TWO writing forums to talk to.
