==I wonder if this site is run by the same people who run Webs.com.==

And about.com, and just about every other site that, at one time, gave their readership a place to be a community.

And then abandoned their readers.

To see it happen at an organization ABOUT writing and reading, that's especially pathetic.
Slowly putting together a "replacement" forum at http://writerswriting.proboards.com.

It's still under construction, but come take a look.

I stop in whenever I have a new book to post in the reading thread.

I'm writing, but not getting my stuff accepted is a big demotivator, so not writing as much.

the site's inefficiency does keep me away more than I'd like.

good hearing from you.

best wishes to all.

They need to hire new staff.
You ask me what I thought about
Before we were lovers.
The answer is easy.
Before I met you
I didn't have anything to think about.

Indeed, @Noizchild.

Or make a final decision about supporting these forums. I could respect either decision.

This death by neglect, not.

Is there some other forum where we could all meet? I tried Absolute Write but it was so busy it made my head spin.

Being the dreamer that I am, I wondered whether some of us with the know-how, like pls, Terry and Rob, could stage a coup and make this site our own. Thoroughly impracticable, I suppose, and I dare say no-one would be willing to cough up the necessary to keep it going. :( :(

I was on AW for a long time, but... several of the mods were more like the kind of folks who get banned here, so I dropped out. Haven't missed it either. :roll:

My thought runs along the lines of we all contact customer service, all at the same time, all demanding that they fix the forum so their customers can actually use it. I mean, why should we buy any of their myriad products if they can't keep the forum updated?

I haven't had that problem at all.

I'm banned from AW. And they believe it's okay to call names in the process (look up robjvargas there and you'll see what I mean). I don't support any organization that thinks that's proper behavior from their staff. Not even if end users earned it.

I've run small forums before. I don't mind setting one up
