    The Forum Has Moved!

    After spending several weeks trying to find the time to really start structuring the forum on forumer, and having a few people join along with me and some of the writers, I get online Saturday morning to find that forum completely offline. The whole server had been down since that morning, well into the night.

    It did not seem like any progress was made on fixing it from what I read in the support forum, so I spent all day searching and researching new forum services Yet Again. Honestly, I was getting more and more frustrated and disappointed in the other forum anyway.

    The good news is, I ran across another even better service, while also being a bit difficult to understand, seems to have much more potential, and user options as well. We also have Chat right there on the forum which I think is a huge plus.

    In any case, please refer to the new forum links, and please join and participate. Some of our writers have already joined over and have begun posting. Wont you join them!
