As you may know by now, the forum has been experiencing difficulties. Whether we can salvage the old one or not, we don't know. In the meantime, to stop you all suffering from withdrawal symptoms or separation anxiety, you can chatter away here.

Hooray! I’ve missed everyone.

If you click on your name on the upper right it should have an option to log out.

I went away for a week. I had to go for a drive to get any phone signal, so I didn't get a chance to check what else I might save. I have versions of most things.

FB, thank you for backing up what you have for me.

This is where I was.

I have a Halloween story I’ve been waiting to post!

And I’ve missed everyone soooooo much!

The withdrawal was really awful. I hope we can get everything back together again soon.

Know what you mean, KK. The Forum is always the first thing I look at each morning and this is agonizing :shock:

Me too. KK has kept in touch by email which was a real help as I did not feel completely cut off. We have been together on this Forum for a good number of years now and I am really hoping we can continue in one form or another. We are already spanning three continents again which is brilliant :D

We're in the middle of setting stuff up, Frecks. It'll be sorted soon.

Are we going to have a general Chat thread? I think we need somewhere to post random little comments so we do not go off topic in the main discussions.

So exciting to see this starting to look like our forum again. Thanks for your hard work so far everyone! It's great to see how quickly we are finding each other again, too. I hope we'll have everyone on board again very soon.
