I would pay whatever is needed to get it back on line.

However, I would much rather and gladly pay to complete a merger.

Perhaps the power being cut is a sign?

So no info yet. I sent an email direct to John Davis (not via "the other site"), but over Easter we might just have to wait.

Who knows, maybe Uncle Donald saw too many alternate-facts coming out and took  ::) direct action  :o.

Crutonius has an interesting theory on that.

We need to come here, bring the people and the web address.

Imagine having a blazing fast perdy website as a home... A place where the admins actually care to upgrade and maintain the infrastructure.  :D

The blocker for a merger has never been money. I could fairly easily complete it within weeks, given all the necessary access to the other site. The blocker is that the other site does not want to merge with us, and no amount of money is likely to change that.
There is free speech and there is being an annoying twat. This user is exercising his right to the latter.

Well that is a shame... Division is not conducive to success in an already small faction. It seems like a win-win..

Y'all get the address you really need, be much easier to continue with building a stronger online presence as I have seen y'all work towards.

We get a nice website that actually works and is maintained.

The society is made whole again with it's populous removing the damaging division.

I see all gain here and zero loss.

Maybe the mysterious Daniel would be willing to sell the site now....I wonder what the price would be??  :)

just in case...

I haven't heard back yet either. Maybe he's trying to reach Daniel or they are both busy with Easter celebrations and activities?

I also mentioned if it was a money thing...we would have to dig deep to take care of business. 

Merger on the table...hmm?

What Happened to the Other FES Forum?

Hi everyone! New here...

Maybe it's not appropriate to ask this question in this Forum, But I was just wondering, because I am a member there and the site was accessible until yesterday - it kept showing me "account suspended" every time I was trying to reach the site!

Anybody have any idea?

This what it shows: https://www.theflatearthsociety.org/cgi-sys/suspendedpage.cgi

Out of curiosity does this site ever go down? I don't visit everyday so I wouldn't notice if it has or not.

Yes. We have a separate forum where all outages (planned or unplanned) are announced and an explanation given:

Locking this thread as there are now several threads about this topic, and S&C isn't really the place for this. Please feel free to continue the discussion here.
