The Forum is Gone
Author: BobR    Date: 07/20/2010 02:57:22

The FourFreedoms forum that started this whole enterprise nearly 3 years ago is gone. The host, "IPBFree" has gone defunct. There apparently are some legal issues involved, but no details. We have lost everything there, our member records, our threads, and all the links, images, etc.

You might be able to keep tabs with the ongoing saga here and here, but it looks very bleak at this point.

That said, the forum was slowly dying anyway. The last time I checked, there hadn't been a single post there since sometime in June. With this blog and Facebook, there seemed to be more technologically advanced venues for discussion. Still - it's sad to see it go.

The forum was a psychic and spiritual life-saver for TriSec, Raine, and I when we needed a new home, and though its creation created its own series of dramas, in the end we were proud of the results.

RIP FourFreedoms forum.

Is there no hope at all? Google Cache is usually good about having dead sites....if we could recover even just our mission statement and rules...

I'll see what I can find regarding the cache...

Google Cache might work.



UNN has been more active, but if the message board is at the heart of UNN then the blog is hte heart of Four Freedoms.

It maybe that I'd have old email stuff re: mission statement and rules, Tri. I tend to keep stuff like that forever. I'll look around and see what I have when I get a chance. I know Bob and I went back and forth in email several times, trying to formulate that stuff.

Time flies, eh?



I am still trying to find out what happened. I think it's a server thing.



a VERY BIG server thing.

I snagged the Rules of Conduct and the Mission Statement out of a Google cache, and have them in Word.



I'll email them to anyone who sends me an email addy at [email protected] and asks.
