I've not been on this site much lately, but I have noticed the big drop off in members posting, apart from pictures. It was good to read the stories and problems of some.

I must admit it is frustrating to check this forum only to find no posts whatsoever - this used to be such a great forum.

Well, I guess this is where i'm supposed to jump in.
As most know, the site was hit with a major spamming hit over a year ago, just as the site was transferring ownership. Both FF and I requested safeguards be included for us to prevent/control spamming. The new owner reviewed things and didn't take our suggestions, claiming spam on this site was not an issue. Shortly after that, the site was hit with major spamming. FF and I had no controls to stop or prevent it. That fact pretty much destroyed the core people's participation here. Additionally, newbies visited, saw the chaos and left quickly.
FF & I eventually were given some spamming control, but I figure it is a case of "too little, too late." Kinda like "Locking the door after the theft." The new owner has yet to contact me about anything, he has emailed FF. May have something to do with my "rant" in the midst of the spamming attack, basically, "This all could have been prevented if..."
The wacko spammer still shows up, the general membership just isn't subjected to it.
As for FF, she's doing well, realized that she has only so much time and energy. Currently, she's on a break.
As for "who's running the site?," good question. Seems like I currently am the "Chief cook and bottle washer."
Dai and Ratty, thank you for your long time participation.
I'm opened to thoughts and suggestions, just saying.
High fives, Jim (Mod, altpenis.com)

Thanks for the update Jim - let's just hang in there and hope things get better one day.

Yes, I agree. But how to get some of the old members back is another question.

It is sad isn't it? I always thought we had something special here. A great core of people, good discussions, some substance but also naughty fun too! Lol

The new,owner only spoke to me because I would n t leave him alone I think. It is horrible the way we all were left hanging with no administrator or anything.

He did tell me that former owner didn't supply them with all they needed to be able to access and change it over to a newer better forum. I don't know much about it though. I've been trying to get my pic removed from "Firefly talks Dick$".

I just don't have the time I used to have. I will try to stop now and then though.


Hope you are all doing well!

If only our forum could've been given the same treatment as Aphrodite's forum frown went over there the other day for a look and it is all slick and lovely and full of interesting (if girly) discussions. Reminds me of how this place used to be (only less girly obvs!)

I've been to see my daughter, she living up the North of England. But I'm back to see what's going on.

I dunno. Maybe get someone to run the site that actually gives a shit would be a start.

For the last couple of weeks I've looked at this site for any change but it appears to be dead, and void of anyone. So what has gone wrong, this seems to have started from when the site was hacked, and the likes of Firefly leaving, it's very sad.

I haven't been here for long time. The owners kept making promises and never delivered. In effect...there is no administrator at all. I don't even know if the same people own it any more. They were apparently running into problemss implementing the upgrade.

It's too bad because this was a pretty good site. Lots of great people!

Those were the days!!

We had something good going on here. I wish this site hadn't been abandoned. So many good posters and interesting conversations!
