    I'm a touch confused.

    Site gets sold, intention, from what I understand, is to try to bring the forum users over to this new platform.
    A few users come across, suggestions are made, the "new" board gets a few minor improvements. A few new admins show up (presumably) from the new company

    No warning, the site rolls out another "new" version. Board and users are reset, but data is migrated in from the old system. @Timo makes an appearance for the first time since I can remember.

    Another set of new admins. Old site finally goes down. Has ownership changed again?

    What ARE the plans for this social network? Is there even any point in providing feedback and making suggestions? Are there any plans to (try to) return this board to it's former (pre 2009) glory?

    Or am I just wasting my time?

    Actually your feedback has been really valuable. Just takes a while to implement various changes.

    Just pulling over all the old stuff took months. And that was after a bunch of months and a pile of cash on the Disqus site that was just in the end no fun.

    BTW the main thing is we have to reinvite like 1-2m old users.

    But we really need to iron out the kinks before attempting that.

    Technically, Mike was the only one "molesting the corpse"...once he reanimated it, the rest of us were posting to a live thread. :)
