    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by s1e9a8n5, Jan 9, 2007.

    I don't know how you guys are with posting topics about other websites and such but does anyone know what happened to writingforums.com? For like 3 days now, it's been saying it can't establish a connection. Does anyone else go here? Is it just me or are they experiencing some difficulties or something?

    Everyone has. I've emailed friends from the site, and all say it's down. Give it a chance, because it's only been three days.

    There's a new administrator over there named Sam, and he doesn't visit the site very often, so it's entirely possible that he is unaware that the site has crashed.

    However, there is also a really good team of staff members there who will be working furiously to get it back online.

    Yeah, I'm in the same boat.

    Though, I hadn't been very active. I was taking some time off from the internet, and when I finally check in, It's crashed! WTF? :*

    Oh, it was fun. But it's not going to burn that easily, it is an old website and the Administrators are working really hard there. Has anyone tried to contact one of the staff there?

    BTW, your site is incredibly awesome Dfischer! I just signed in.

    Catastrophic loss would be my bet. Otherwise they would be up by now.

    Yes, it is-- it has been four days and nothing. I can't believe such a huge website would simply disappear.

    I am curious if anyone tried to contact a staff member.

    I just spoke to Nae411, one of the admins. She doesn't know why the site has gone down. There's a new owner but she doesn't have contact details for him. She's been in touch with the old owner to see what can be done. Otherwise, everyone's just hoping it'll come back up.

    She's trying to contact as many people as possible via email but obviously doesn't have everyone's address.

    Cheers,
    Rob

    If WF.com is truly gone, then it's going to be.

    When I spoke to Nae, she said it's possible that a new site might be set up if wf.com is gone. Sounds as though that idea is in the very early stages, but if I hear more I'll post here. We have space for some wf.com refugees in too, if it comes to that, but I'm sure we're all hoping it will come back online some time soon and back to business as usual.

    Cheers,
    Rob

    New owners, eh?
    Any fresh publishable material pop up over there right before it disappeared?

    If anyone wants me to pass on their email address to Nae, let me have it via PM and she can include you in the updates being sent out.

    Cheers,

    Hmpph, interesting. What horrible owners to let it get away like that.

    And thanks for the compliment on Writer's Beat ! I appreciate it. It's really grown quite a bit if I do say so myself.

    The new owner is either self-serving or incompetent at this point.

    We don't know what has happened, so it doesn't make any sense to judge.

    Give me an option that doesn't fall under those two categories and I'll modify my opinion.
