    Not much from the forums sadly.

    EDIT: Many of the reviews, analyses and complete cue lists from the mid-00s can be found there also. I will add them back to the website whenever it's online, but most of the cue lists have been outdated by more recent info available on the forums.

    Another reason why I'm visiting this temp forum less and less is because I just can't be doing with how freakin' farcical the whole thing is. I cringe when I read the latest updates here, and if I was drunk I'd be really bloody annoyed.

    But I'm not.

    I was able to get some stuff from some of the forums, Jays OP for his "Label Release Details" Thread, and some of the Chronological Score lists.

    No one will be very happy at starting over, especially myself.

    It makes me wonder with 3 days and Jack not paying the bill if he spent the money on something else. If he did, that would be VERY VERY wrong. I just wish he would quit ignoring everyone.

    That man needs to grow a bigger pair of balls, answer the three of you and get this situation behind him and do some major growing up.

    I was about to post him a message on his wall, which I think went through. I can't get to his page now , through on Facebook I think he put me on block and deleted me off my friends list. Just shows you how much is truly cares about this place.

    Woah.

    When you mentioned this I went to check my Facebook to at least see if your post went through...and as it turned out he has removed me from his friend's list too. He must have done this very recently, because as late as this morning I can recall seeing him on Facebook chat as available.

    It looks like he kept Jason on his friends list, at least.

    I'm sorry if I started something bad. I generally can keep a cool level head but when it comes to my friends, their money and a situtaiton that is dragging on endlessly when it DOES NOT need to be I eventually get pretty pissed off. The fact that he won't respond to anyone from here on JWFAN yet is constantly on Facebook daily and posts nearly daily is REALLY extremely rude. I know most may not say something about it but I will. I eventually get tired of when something like this gets dragged on when it doesn't need to be.

    Jack needs to grow a pair of balls, grow up and get that damn bill paid and the information to Jason, Andreas and Ricard.

    Again I'm sorry if I started something bad but enough is enough of this shit.

    At least he hasn't blocked me on twitter. Rolling Eyes

    This really is ridiculous, he's messing with stuff that someone else OWNS. He doesn't own the site. It's not his place to string people along.
    The fact that he's been given plenty of time to pay the bills on his own, and has been given the opportunity to pay it with someone else's money and has yet to do anything...it's just infuriating.

    Hey guys, Jack sent me some messages today. He tells me that he entered the payment info into 1&1 yesterday. I still see nothing indicating that in my paypal account but maybe it just takes a little bit to process. I have asked him to look into the matter and send me screenshots showing the current status as 1&1 shows.

    In the meantime, please stop writing on his facebook wall, spamming his twitter, or sending him any other negative messages on any other medium. It accomplishes nothing whatsoever. He knows he messed up and he is doing what he can to fix everything. The site should be back soon now. A little more patience is necessary. Thank you.

    Important:

    When jwfan.net is alive, and Jacks server is back online:
    Copy so many data, pictures, text... to your harddisk as you can.
    To Ricard, Jason (all admin on the messageboard/website): Give the
    account "Andreas" admin rights. Hope I can begin a first
    copy of the data over the messageboard himself.
    But after all I need a root account on the server to take a
    complete backup.
    Not that we do not get root account and the server is offline again after a few days.
    Stores all data which can be found!!!!

    Thanks.

    Andreas

    That is very kind of you Jason, but this could have been settled WEEKS ago. So unless he had serious personal issues, like his leg falling of, or his dog dying, I really can't see how he has shown that he's interested in fixing the problem....

    I agree with Steef in this matter.

    Jason, as always you are the consummate gentleman and all round good bloke. What you say is right, but please understand that not all of us are as reasonable and patient as you are. It's not a failing, but a passion. Jack didn't do himself any favours at all during this whole sorry saga. However, if you and he manage to resolve this situation then I'll openly apologise to Jack and I'll mean every word of it.

    I just wonder if my "helpful words" to his Twitter account last night are what finally got the ball rolling.

    Told you I did. Reckless is he.

    (Is it considered a faux pas to quote SW films now that these new improved Blu-Ray versions are about to be released?)

    This forum seems to work well for me. Heck if it can save Ricard and the gang a few bucks, keep it and just keep the main page updated for new/notes/releases and such like always. Domain names and decent hosting are fairly cheap (without the humongous message board demanding so much storage space), so IMO, a forum like this should be more than adequate. It's very clean and smooth as far as free forums go.

    And then you are depending from Forumotion.com.
    I was asked if I would like to take over the hosting again. But it will cost some money. If it is not desired, I will retire again. While there is already a new server for the web page but the costs are still manageable.

    Andreas, we would love for you to take over hosting duties once again, with the help of real, regular donations from the community.

    If the cost is still the aforementioned $30 a month, then I don't see how there will be an issue.

    Yes about 30 dollar. I will post all calculations on the messageboard.

    More when the website is back online and transfer to a new server.
