Hey guys, I'm putting this in the TV forum since that seems to be where the most activity is. 
 
I'm just letting you know that several parts of the message board are now crashing. I (and other mods) can no longer access our moderator forum. I can't access the Admin part of the site period, which means I can't create new forums for a new season, among other things.
 
I've contacted the site owner several times to no avail and he's ignored me, so at this point, I fear the site's days are numbered. Yeah I know the hey day of this place is long gone, but I know people still pop in to check things out, maybe keep in touch with someone via PM. 
 
On that note, I suggest you save anything you want. I am worried that as parts of the site are breaking, pretty soon the whole thing is going to just crash and burn.

Yeah it sucks, but nothing I/we can do at this point unfortunately. :(

Thanks for everything- I joined this board several years ago and it was a bustling community of intelligent, creative people with so many ideas on the various philosophical questions the show delved into.

The show's decline in quality, as well as a simple matter of getting long in the tooth, certainly contributed to the decline in visitors, but as the show picked up I had hoped the site might grow again.

TWD did it's part, and people here have tried to do their part.

It's too bad the owners won't even comment on the problem, but it's good that you have taken the time to offer the heads up.

There are several people here who I will miss and if anyone plans to frequent another site let us know- maybe we can take over the dialog elsewhere! :)

Noticed the site was acting strangely lately, but didn't expect that.

Kind o weird that the owners didn't just pass the torch.

It's been so neglected on the back end and updates haven't been done in years (stuff I didn't have permissions to do so my hands were tied). It's been very frustrating to deal with, trust me.

Indeed, it's really sad. Activity is really down. I rushed on here after the pikes episode to find it without a discussion thread at all for quite a while, and eventually gave up.

Bit of a shame. I remember when the site was absolutely buzzing when the show and games were  at their peak popularity. Fun times with all the debates and discussions. I don't drop in near as much as I used to, but it would be sad this site go

What a shame.  Thanks to Bug, Steph and D.P. for keeping it alive for this long.  When the game room was inaccessible, I had my fears but this just really brings the reality home and just when the show's worth watching again!!  Best to all of y'all.  Thanks for years of great conversations.  I met a lot of good folks on here.

Yeah, it sucks bad. I'm sure I'm not the only one a bit nostalgic for the old days here when it was at its peak. Who knows, maybe things will get fixed before the next season, but I'm not holding my breath. I just wanted to give a heads up before something drastic happens and all we get is an error when we try to log on.

At the risk of stabbing the wounded, is there another TWD forum that folks are likely to use?

I have lurked on “spoilthedead.” A couple of caveats: they can be a bit negative, espescially about FTWD. Also, their spoiler forum is awash in real spoilers, so avoid it if you do not want to be spoiled; less so on FTWD, the their TWD spoilers are breathtaking.

Serenity needs some thanking too. She was helping me try to get ahold of the site owner.

We aren't down for the count yet. Steph basically made this thread so nobody would be surprised if the site does crash and to let people know if they want to keep in touch with anyone from here, they should get their contact info.

This site would not have been the same without you.

There is a twd forum on a site called battle royale forums. It is real similar and pretty active. Its a little buried in the menu but once you find it, it has pretty much all the same threads going.

Click menu and forums. Scroll down to Twd. Pretty extensive

I've been having a lot of trouble posting for a few weeks now.  

 

The discussion on R&L has been interesting and thoughtful and I'll miss it.

Good find, DZH.  Hopefully this place will somehow outlive the show.  That's all up to RumblePup.  No one else can fix it so if he's not willing (or able) to do so, it will die slowly.  Game room is gone.  I thought it was a bandwidth issue as it's picture heavy down there.  Turns out, it's not.  It's really sad to see.  I hope RP isn't having health issues or something like that that's keeping him from attending to R&L.  Life does happen sometimes so I'm reluctant to make any judgment as to why this place has been left to fend for itself without the tools with which to fix it.  Still, it's nice to see a last port in the storm, as it were. So thank you!

I hope he's ok too. At least we got to be here together, share and some made wonderful friends to boot.
