    Stick a hand up if you're here...

    Post by dinizouttheoven on Wed Feb 11, 2015 1:20 am

    Three hours into the Grand F1 Rejects Server Migration Forum Blackout... and I wondered if anyone will turn up here.

    Raise a hand if you do. Especially as there's no telling how long it'll be before (or if!?) the forum returns in its new home...

    WTF?

    Just entered f1rejects.com a few minutes ago and found out the news. Just when it started to look, if not better, at least stable...

    Well, what's going on? Who has taken over the old forums? Will we be contacted at our old e-mail addresses? Will we be informed here? An announcement will be posted in the old site, or what?

    1. The forums are being moved to a new address. This process should take no more than a few weeks. Jamie will give the full details once the process is complete.
    2. Biscione is taking charge of the migration. Don't worry, the forums will be safe.
    3. I do not know.
    4. No. Biscione is against the use of this forum. Use the chat instead for further information: http://client00.chat.mibbit.com/?server=irc.mibbit.net&channel=%23F1Rejects
    5. Again, I do not know, but try to keep up to date with the chat.

    Due to everyday life, I do not always keep up-to-date with the chat. Have I missed out on any news recently?

    To be honest, I haven't been using the chat much myself, so I don't have much to report! Razz But according to the new Twitter page there's been a slight setback (no idea what it is though).

    Thanks for the update. I've been Googling the Twitter feed every so often, but never been to the chat.

    By the way, when I was on Facebook just now, I typed "F1 Rejects" into the search box, and the first result to come back was not our former overlords' Facebook pages, but Don Pentecost's Force 1 USA team! His page is called F1 Rejects!

    Yeah, but didn't Mr Pentecost really dislike our forum, yet he has taken over the site's name?!

    Nonetheless, it's strikingly similar, don't you think? Wonder if FOM will be after him any time soon? And how much interest will he get if people think he's the F1 reject!

    It actually is. FOM should sue his MURICAN arse if he doesn't comply to their demands.

    I thought you might like to know that, according to Nuppiz, there's a problem with the tables that sort all the posts into readable topics. One scary (but not the only!) possibility is that the forum may need to be started again from scratch. Let's hope that the past 5 years of reject discussion and alternate championships are not lost to history.

    Thank you for finding out and sharing that. That would really be rather bad news if it happens. I'm therefore glad I was editing my Mastercard Lola post, and had it stored as a Microsoft Word doc on my laptop and backed up on my phone.

    I would also particularly miss Bigears' posts - a lot of effort must have gone into compiling all those clippings of multiple teams.
