It looks quite bad but we will have the forum back at some point, however it may take a few weeks so this is going to be home until then. I know its a little different has its quirks but The Highway Man has made it green so it feels homely.

What I'm trying to say is the forum is you guys not a website so even though we may not have a huge database of posts behind us we are here. So getting chatting. If you can promote this temporary home to all those that use the forum and get them to sign up that would be ace.

I will try and email users off TGPF tomorrow to let them know we're here. I don't have enough hours in the day at the moment so I am afraid I will be a little quiet with work and trying to get us sorted but any questions on the forum please ask The Highway Man or Me.

Its very easy for those posting to fail to see the hard work that goes on behind the scenes to keep things like the forum working.

This is so true.

Debbie and Ellie have worked so hard over the years to build up the forum so that it's top of the google searches and it is really frustrating what is going on. Lee has also spent most of his life the last couple of weeks trying to sort it out.

It's bad when idiots like the hackers who did this can spoil it for lots of people who got no interest in middle east politics.

A little tip: If you want to view any old posts from TGPF you can if you get the right searchwords: For instance, I did a thread about 6 months ago titled "A Different Type of Run". to find this go into Google advanced search & type in guineapigforum (all one word in top box & different type of run in the second box. Hit the search button & it comes up with 2 results, the first being "A Different Type of Run - The Guinea Pig Forum". Don't clich on this header (in blue) but go to the next line (in green) & hit the downward pointing arrow at end of line which will then add a box called "Cached". Hit this and you go to the original thread. Unfortunate you can only get the first page, about 10 posts. If you need a later page you can maybe add more search words eg member name to get more choices.

I now have my tech admin from my own forum busy working away on TGPF, so fingers crossed he'll be able to have it fixed sooner rather than later. Wink

I would just like to add, I am so grateful for the help of The Highwayman Man, so much so I will create a shrine to him in my garden after all this is over...

Seriously though I am quite humbled and emotional over the support offered and given by The Highwaymans friend - Not manly of me I know Smile
When a a stranger offers help, expertise and his time (for nothing in return despite it being offered) its quite a special thing in this day and age and in this case could keep our community going, its a very special kind of person to do that.

Yes thank you everyone. I like this little forum, is the same format as an old vegan one I used to be on which is no longer running.

Well done! I seem to have had to register under a new user name. It's actually me Lilly slave of Hazelnut & Peanut Butter. Would not let me register under my old TGPF name. So, guess this means new avatar, new profile, etc & 50 posts to be able to PM? Anyway it could be worse!

You can pm straight away, not the same rules as the proper forum. Everyone should be able to post now. Wink

As we speak, Falken is busy ensuring everything has transferred over to the new forum in readiness for opening in the morning. Unfortunately, The Highway Man username won't be coming with me, I'm reverting to the username which I have on my own forum which is BossHogg, so if you're wondering who the new admin is, its me!
