Just wondering: is dot.tech discontinuing its forums? I’m using Firefox and can’t see any mention of ‘forum’ on dot tech’s home page. Is it a Wordpress glitch????? Inputting ‘forums’ into search produces this page-top information:

Warning: fopen(/home/dottech/public_html/wp-content/sp-resources/forum-cache/sp-plugin-scripts-footer.js): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/dottech/public_html/wp-content/plugins/simple-press/sp-api/sp-api-plugins.php on line 745

Ditto.  And there’s problems with the login process!

The whole site is starting to get a “ghost town” feel.

Days between posts, very few comments, forums full of SPAM!

Shame, used to be a great site!Cry

I do hope Ashraf isn’t being too distracted by other ventures. In the past, he’s had a go at several initiatives, including a humor / jokes section that may’ve seemed like a good idea at the time but experience must rightly have shown it wasn’t worth bothering with. SoS is hopefully a way of monetizing, at least in part, Ashraf’s efforts — but if it’s to be at the expense of making dot tech feel like a “ghost town”, and especially after all the work/cost that went into revamping it, then that would be seriously counter-productive.

This current situation, where the dot.tech forums aren’t even headlined, isn’t good for dot tech as a whole nor its users and creator. Fingers crossed that the situation is fixed soon because the absence of a working user forum means the discarding of a tangible user community, one which, once lost, won’t come back. Frown

I fear it’s happening.  Hopefully, if we keep this thread going, perhaps someone (like Ashraf?) will notice!

Another week gone and no response from “Mr Boss” or the other admins.

I’ll keep posting (until I get bored) with the intention of keeping it in the “Unread and recently updated topics” section!  Yell

I’m now bored.

No one answers, no one cares!

Therefore I quit.

This used to be such an interesting, active forum, now it has died.

Such a shame.

The forums is more or less dead. Not very many people use it and it is full of spam. I don’t have the time to control the spam.
