How is this Site STILL standing?

I'm not understanding why the site is still around. Is he going to fix it or is it going to stay this way!?

Don't know. I thought it was closed down and archived already. Seems like there is not much new posts. Back in the hey day there used to be several discussions on a daily basis. Good thing is I have made several good friends on here and some people found their soul mates when the site was at its peak.

I guess Mike just gave up on maintaining the site. I think things started going downhill with the chatroom being gone. I miss the good old days when this place was busy. But people move on and so does life. That's just the way it is.

I think those that are still active on the site have been using one of the discord accounts that was set up. I miss having the chat room on the website. Fortunately, the website is still working (minus a few things like the chat room). I think it was about a year or so ago when it started having all these glitches and it seemed that it was about to crash. Is there any chance that you could take over management here Vince?

Depends on what you mean by "management." As an admin, I can regulate access to forums for members and I can oversee what goes on in threads. But in terms of maintaining the servers and upgrading the software, only Mike can do that. He isn't exactly motivated to act upon these things even if he gets continuously gets pestered. So you're welcome to keep emailing him and hope he does something about it, but I'm not holding my breath.

I was hoping that Mike would turn over the website to you. You've always been on the ball with the admin duties.

I think it is time Mike "archives" the site as read only content. No new users, no new posts, but anyone stumbling on the site via google to see a discussion on a topic can read it.

It's good to see you Francois, but I think that is an awful idea. It may not be very active on here right now, but there will probably still be a few who join in the future (or who are already members) who get something meaningful or insightful from being able to exchange ideas or messages here. Even if the site is very quiet, I'm still glad to know it's still here.

Hello everybody,

just wanted to say Hi, I guess. I wasn´t able to log into the site for quite some time. The site didn´t let me. Today, I tried again after a very long time and it worked miraculously.

Why isn´t Mike doing anything to maintain and "foster" the site anymore? He always said wtm.org is one of his "precious websites"...I hope nothing bad happened to him :-/

It´s good to see some old faces around here :-)

Why do you think this would be a good idea? Just asking out of curiosity. Good to see you, by the way, Francois :-)

I´m with Syzygy, though. Archiving the site so it´s only "read only content" is the last thing I would want for wtm.org!

Can new people not join the site anymore? It looks like the last people to sign up were back in April 2018.

@Syzygy People have been struggling to sign up for a while. Way back when I signed up, I could only use gmail...and now I dont even think that is an option. It would be nice if Vince or someone could fully take over the IT responsibilities.
