At the top of the page there is a link to an important announcement from the owners of this bulletin board, stating that it will be shutting down at the end of June.

What are we going to do?

We need to find another hosting site, get an export file and set up shop elsewhere

That would be too bad - this is the only "social" site I routinely visit or really say anything on.

* Not that any of what I say is worthwhile, obviously. *

Right then - this has just taken me ten minutes to do. So it is pretty easy to setup a new site.

Have a look. It's only a starter for ten. Maybe we could use the opportunity to reinvent ourselves. Happy to set it up like

Don't shoot me down. Go back to OMJ. Seems all the arguing types, except for me and I've done my best to behave myself on here have left.
I've got The Bonfire Of The Vanities thread going on there. We're not that different.

Puts tin hat on.

Blimey, well spotted . Who are the owners ? I have it in my mind that Lol and Tank Girl actually own the forum still and Bearing actually runs it?

I think we should up sticks and start again. Nothing against OMJ Cuts , well the lads who post on it now at least. Who actually "Owns" OMJ these days? it? I get the distinct impression that because I'm mates with MG I'm a bit persona non grata, certainly seem to be in twitter circles anyway. Not that I give a fuck like

Anyway like G I don't go anywhere else but would like to keep this thing going, maybe grow it even. Are you sayng start again on this free forum format H?  Ill help, as long as it doesnt cost too much

I like the reinvent/ new start angle. As for OMJ I've had a gander a few times over the last few years and I personally think its crap. Might be good for you LU lot as its big on football but it holds no allure to me whatsoever. I like the idea of this place shutting down and floating off into the shadow world of cyberspace forever. A bit like yer man Terence Stamp and his band of baddies in Superman 2 when they get entombed in that tile thing. Consigned to the depths of space forever n' that.

From what I understand, we don't have to lose anything. We can request an export file to transfer everything to a new forum. Heyho seems up to the job.

By all means we could have a spring clean when it moves, but I'm happy with things the way they are.

I presume Bearing is still the registered contact with the bulletin board owners, or did Grind take over?

Grind knows nothing. Especially about interweb things.

He's attempting to set up an Amazon Echo (received at Christmas!) as he writes.

* Alexa, are we going up as fucking champions?

Looking at the stats for this site Bearing is out on his own with overall posts - 27,8045,

Grind, Dock, Forest and Sheeps have also had plenty to say

There are shed loads of zero post / non activated accounts we could easily clear up now.

And there are only around a couple of dozen accounts who have logged in and contributed this year

It's my bitter little mind. It compels me to post.

Should we just go to the new one and register as forum members then? Don't want to jump in if its not allowed. Think I'll have a new name.

*thinks*

And it'll be a chance for a fresh start. No anti-commercialisation of football rants, no racing, just my usual knackerknob opinions, music, and books.

Do we have a moving date?
