We're around the one year anniversary of the death of the RT forums. KE8 resuscitated these forums on 11/29, so I imagine that's the day this place will go dark again if he hasn't made another payment.

Rabid apparently has his phone number, so maybe this isn't as important, but check to make sure you remember your Slack channel credentials, or ask to be PMed an invite link if you never got onto there last time. Ivan, I'm looking at you.

Same here. I honestly am surprised this place lasted as long as it did.

No, no. It's cool. We booted wirthling a while back. Left him on the Sandwich Islands, I think.

It has been so long since I have hung out in there that at first I couldn't remember how to do anything. One thing I remembered is that it might not be obvious to newbies how to engage in the "threads." Click on "Channels" in the left nav and then in the next screen set it to "show all channels" and then it's just a matter of clicking on the channel and then clicking the "join channel" button once you're in there. Of course, this is all basically moot information at the moment because nobody is discussing anything anywhere in Slack, though I did not join #vdaysuckandfuck, so maybe there's something going on in there.

Slack is just a chat service that we visit once a year when our forum vaporizes, to decide where to migrate. If you don't feel like joining, wirthling can find you on his forum and update you

tl;dr: Everyone check their Slack credentials and make sure you can still log in.

On top of the crisis affecting us IRL, we should think about impending disasters facing our community here. Kateland went down end of Jan and Feb. KE8 mentioned to me that, apparently, he can't do automated payments anymore, and has to remember to do them. Seems like he forgot twice, but was at least reading his email, and got the site back up.

That isn't encouraging. Wirthling shot him a message to change the site admin's email address to one he and KE8 share, but I don't think KE8's been responsive to that.

I'm not sure what's going on with KE8, but if he's not going to give Wirthling the tools he needs to keep this place running, it's going to disappear. And if that doom countdown is on a monthly interval, it's going to happen sooner than later.

Everyone make sure their slack credentials still work, so we can regroup when this place goes down.

Why are we only PMing the link? You need an invite to get in anyway, right?

Dyne and Ned, if you want in you need to PM an email address to Paquito or me or Meow or...I think like twenty of us are admins so just toss a PM in any direction.

I dunno, we never posted the link openly, I was just following that practice
Quote
Paquito
Also, I don't think anyone needs to PM an email address. Anyone in the chat should be able to generate an invite link, for people that can't log in
Quote
wirthling
But the invite requires an email address and most people don't want to post those openly. Or does it not require an email address? I don't remember any more.

Yep. Think we need another home, if we want long-term forum security. Relying on KE8 to keep this place running when he no longer posts here and his current status is unknown seems like a bad bet.

Probably our best bet, assuming wirthling doesn't abandon us like Daddy KE8.

You wouldn't abandon us, would you, wirthling?
