Wow, I'm stunned but I understand. I haven't read through this thread (yet) but I would be happy to help do whatever is needed to preserve this forum (moving it elsewhere, or whatever).

21 years is a long time and I certainly appreciate everything you've done to keep this community around! :)

Peace...

you might wanna ADD this http://seamonkey.boards.net/ . i think Frank made it


I looked at this, but there is nothing there. Maybe Josa can start posting his "reports" to both places. If it is copy/paste, that should be fairly easy. At least that way, people will have somewhere else to look.

@kerz
Thanks so much! Especially for the KB. We are legion out here in quiet confused land who've been helped by this site for ever.
@ all mods
You've supervised to keep help threads short and full o'information for the bewildered,
yet your lightness of touch allowed the epics full entertaining rein.

While I've dipped out of doing anything more than the occasional read, I look forward to
the spirit of help in here continuing for years more.
Good luck to all with the move to another venue!

No one has heard from Kerz since his first post?

Edited by moderator [tanstaafl]. He has made four posts in this thread. The last one was on 24 Sep 2019. He hasn't replied to any emails or private messages. In the future, please read more of the thread before asking questions.

Hmm, we seem to have left the 'This is an odd business' stage and entered the 'This is all getting pretty silly' one.

Personally, I don't care now if Jason has gone off to live with the Yanomami tribe to find himself or is going to pop up in a few months with a cheery 'Sorry about that, been really, really busy at work', I would just encourage him to do, be it good, bad or ugly, whatever he intends to do sooner, rather than later.

Those of you who have watched the film Inception, will already know that limbo is not a great option.

To re-state an up-til-now ignored suggestion made by others ---There is NO KNOWN URL to "Meet At" to continue the Plan B discussion, and "Lights-Out" can come at -- who knows when?--- With or Without a Warning.
I'll re-state that the last "User Post" at Eileen's Lounge Mozilla Firefox Forum (Same Posting format as this forum) --- http://www.eileenslounge.com/viewforum.php?f=32 ---- was Sep 4, SO we wouldn't be a Big Intrusion to camp there until a New Forum Site Plan is devised by someone(s).

The Reddit Firefox Forum ??

Can Someone please declare a backup discussion URL and IF it becomes irrelevant, Great!

Frank, "limbo" is fine, in my view. Better than demise.

And, yes, there should be some "Meet At" location in the event of demise here.

Given the viable alternatives previously outlined in this thread, the 'demise' option is very unlikely. i.e. it's less work just give the keys to someone and walk away.

You asked about that in relation to SeaMonkey users earlier in this thread and someone gave you the answer. The same subject was also discussed in the SeaMonkey General forums, where you later made this reply -

Frank, I wasn't aware that there was any consensus to migrate there in the event this great forum here goes away.
