Default Has Steve given up on this forum?

Just noticed Steve has not been active since May 2014, so I am giving up, to hard to keep deleting these serial spammers as it takes so long to do.

There would be an easier way but Steve is the only one with full access.

I think (nearly) everyone has given up.

It takes a lot of time and effort to make a forum a success, especially in present times when a lot of the forums are hurting.

Question

Hell, come on guys. Where I come from no gives up at any time on anything. I'm quite prepared to put several reviews up on line now that my work load has decreased markedly, but hey, if everyone else is negative is there any point in proceeding?

The amount of spam makes it one of the worst forums now Emdee, it does not matter that now and then someone might post. It will get a lot worse as there does not seem to be anyone else trying to control the spam and if new people see it then they will not bother with this forum as have many of the old timers :)

I understand Cathy. OK Steve, it now up to you to decide. If you want this forum to continue then you have go give some impetus to it. After all you are the proprietor. This forum can be a "goer" once again with just a little effort.

If you have lost interest Steve just let us know please!

Default Time to say "goodbye"

It is apparent that this site is now moribund. There has not been a new post for nearly three weeks. It seems that I'm the only one posting new threads.

The owner Steve appears to have abandoned the site and does not respond to emails. One moderator, Cathy has given up in frustration in trying to tidy the site on a daily basis, whilst the other moderator, Shanek has not logged in for 3 years!!!!!

So it is time to say goodbye. It was a good site in its best years and its sad to see it limping along with no support in recent times.

May all of your travels be good ones and safe ones.

Emdee, 26/04/2015

Pretty pathetic if he has just given up on the forum, he last posted on the Travel Forum Facebook page in May 2014. He could have let everyone know by posting here then deleting the actual forum that has all our contact details, email addresses etc etc.

I dropped by today after a lengthy absence to see how everyone was getting on. Not much happening by the look of it. Shame to see Emdee go.
