The Guild - Anyone KNow What's Going On?

http://www.guildwargamers.com/phpBB3/index.php has been "Forum is currently updating..so drink wine, eat cheese and catch some rays" for quite some time.

Any idea what's happening with the Guild?

Posted on TMP:

It seems The Guild forum has suffered a terminal event and can't be recovered. Apparently announced by the admins on the FB page. As of now there is no way of recovering what was there and the admins are not sure if they will start a new one from scratch.


and later

"After a rather confusing and sad week, "The Guild" admin team are now announcing that it appears that the forum has gone for good.
We share the sense of loss that has been circulating online for the last few days, and like you we mourn the loss of what was not only a great wargaming and modelling resource, but was for us a labour of love and place to hang out with friends online.

Between us we have run forums together for over 14yrs, first at Elhiem, then Showcase20 and most successfully with "The Guild" which ran for over 11yrs, our success based around treating others the same way as you would expect to be treated. A sign of this successful ethos was the fact that the forum pretty much ran itself as the 3500+ international membership were polite and encouraging. The reputation that the forum built up is an immense source of pride to us, and we thank those who helped foster that. We would also like to thank those of you we have met, travelled with, played games with, crashed at homes and generally been amazing friends with over the last few years. The friendships we have built I hope will endure beyond this.

With the death of the main forum, this FB page is redundant and the decision has been made to turn this off in the next two weeks also.

At present the admin team are talking about the possibility of starting again and creating a new space to hang out in, but 11yrs on we now have much busier real lives, with added demands from work, family and children and other hobbies, so nothing is yet confirmed….

We thank you all for your recent communications and we hope to see you at a wargaming show soon…"
