It's good to see that your forum will continue after Oct 11th and well done to those who have come forwrd to act as moderators.
On the other hand I do find it a little sinister that the original thread on this has been deleted - I hope that history isn't being rewritten already!
Nothing sinister, honest!
It was a case of 'mission accomplished' with the original thread. I asked for some volunteers and I got some. Good news. Rather than leave the old thread up, which might continue to worry people that the forum might be shutting down, I decided to just bin it to remove any doubts about that. It's here to stay.
