    If that's the case, I don't know why 1&1 didn't restore the site last week!

    Sadly JWFan did not make it to the end of the world in 2012.

    RIP. So close. Sad

    Most of the old gang is here now. I wonder why Quint hates this MB so much.

    I'm sure the old board will be back but this place isn't too bad

    The nice thing about this board is it actually isn't all THAT different aesthetically from the real deal, so it feels a little more homey than something like FSM.

    That's because it is the same board more or less. I created this almost a year ago to mirror our board at the time. It was a test dummy to showcase other options when Andreas resigned as web hoster.

    Yeah, and don't get any silly inspirations to change the backdrop color to pale apricot. Rolling Eyes

    It's white, and always shall be.

    Apparently it doesn't work as smoothly for him.

    oh crap, it looks like they actually might have lost all the data from the old site. I really never thought it would come to that

    Really? I fully expected all data to be lost.

    Though again, I've witnessed a similar situation before. Did not end well.

    If the old website really is lost then its worldwake. Everything we may have lost is too SEVERE and too MUCH too even express in words. We will never get all the work, the informations, the articles and the lists, the sheets and the insider stuff back.
    Months of work that many members poured into the site may be for nothing and no one can be expected to do the same again. Some may have saved their stuff on their own computers but i guess that would be very few.

    The whole history of John Williams in the past 10 years was collected there in threads and etc, concert reviews, photos, cool stories.



    Jack i hope you come to your f-ing senses and tell the truth for ONCE. What happened, what happens? And if you don't have the balls to do it yourself just give out your hosting access codes!!!!

    We may not even get the members back. If Jack managed to ruin this website i can't wish him anything good for the future!!!

    I don't blame Andreas one bit for being as pissed off as he is. Hell most of us are pissed off at Jack right now. He does need to give Andreas or Ricard the information so they can get that server information from the old board.

    I truly would suck if everything from the old board is lost for good because of Jack's incompetence at being a proper hoster for the site.

    I did try to warn everyone when the news broke that he became the hoster for the site. I just knew this would happen since Jack's lack of communication was just a red flag.

    Stringing us along like this is bullshit.

    I can certainly understand Andreas being annoyed, and Ricard since his life's work has been destroyed, but has anyone thought about me?

    Just think about Incanus or other members reviews, articles and analysis for example or the whole special editing threads..................

    I was up there in the post count too.

    While it will suck if we have to start over again but if that's what needs to be done, then so be it.

    Can we save some of our frustration for the time when it actually is confirmed? It's not like we're talking about facts here...

    1) Some very important data (like the concert reviews, score analyses, old cue lists...) can be retrieved form archive.org. That's what I'm working on right now. The forum's data is what really worries me, but I'm still optimistic anyway.

    2) PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE STOP being so negative and resentful. Or I will lock this thread too.

    We still don't know the outcome of this story.

    Thanks,

    Guys, nothing has changed.

    Either:

    1>Jack is telling us the truth about the situation, and 1&1 either has some crazy technical issues or just general ineptitude preventing the site from coming back on

    or

    2> Jack has been lying to us this whole time about what's going on, and the data is either already gone and he's too afraid to tell us, or he thinks that by continuously coming up with new excuses he will somehow get me or someone else to send him money again or something.


    I just have a hard time believing #2 to be the case. I think Jack doesn't want JWFan to disappear and wouldn't let the data get erased.... I think he's just not being proactive about getting on 1&1s case to fix it immediately. I just wrote him and asked him for his account # and whatever other information is necessary so that maybe I can take over contacting 1&1 and riding their ass until things are fixed.

    I do think that working on building a new website in the meantime is a good idea anyway. All the information from the old articles can be imported into a new interface easily enough. I would be VERY sad however if the message board history is gone forever. I want all those posts back and to keep using the same software for the messageboard as we were before.

    Hopefully it won't be much longer. I assure you guys I am immediately responding to Jack and updating everyone here whenever he actually gets any messages out to me.

    To his credit, he was actually paying for our charge-free careless frolicking on there. So I doubt he'll suddenly turn to the dark side. Doesn't make sense to me (or, to put it in more understandable language: that would be a major plot hole).
