Sad. Isn't it?

I heard nothing. Surely somebody had to be close to him and knows what went down.

An automated server-side upgrade rendered some crucial older scripts unusable
is what happened (its on the main page) im just wondering if anyone has tried to contact him or knows if he's even trying to repair it.

the message on the main page says
Forum is down for technical reasons*. The fix will unfortunately be difficult and will take some time. Apologies for the inconvenience.
makes you think he's actually fixing it. but it's been down sense i think August (if im remembering right) and the message on the homepage hasn't changed. im looking for an update. cause at this point im thinking he's just abandoning it

".....will take some time."

It's gone. I gave up hope after the third month or so.

If it was being fixed, there would have been update messages every so often. At least, that's what I would have done.

i can understand him not wanting to sell it, it is attached to (a now defunct) youtube channel. and the whole thing might be an LLC or part of one.
but man, no response, no reply, no nothing. that almost seems odd. forms been down for what, almost a year and a half now?
at this point iv finally accepted the fact that it's not coming back. still an explanation would be nice
