KRAZY KATS

Welcome to Krazy Kats - a friendly informal discussion forum: Talk about anything from birth to death - and beyond!

The Video of the Week now showing on Light After Life forum is: 'HUMAN'
I hope everyone is safe from the rages of Ophelia. Not forgetting the poor frightened animals too. xx
Hearing all the stories here. 3 people have died so far in Ireland with trees hitting cars. Can't for the life of me understand why anyone would venture out in a car in a hurricane!!!
A really strange golden hue in the atmosphere here in London. And a weird but slightly familiar smell in the air - reminds me of just before a sandstorm in Libya.

JREF forum set for the chop

Post by Kitkat on Thu 07 Aug 2014, 15:17

Statement from the JREF:  http://www.randi.org/site/index.php/jref-news/2384-regarding-the-jref-forum-status.html

Regarding the JREF Forum status
Latest JREF News
Written by Sharon Hill  

The time for change has come. The long-running JREF online Forum at forums.randi.org is soon to head off on its own.

JREF staff is in the midst of arranging a transition to a new owner. Various people are currently working to preserve the integrity of the forum content to the greatest extent possible with the privacy concerns of users in mind.

The JREF still retains ownership of the forum at this point.

This does not affect the randi.org website.

Due to some administrative issues that are causing problems and confusion, JREF board member Rick Adams will be taking administrative control of the Forums. This will result in temporary suspension of other admin activity, including registering new Forum users, while the confusion between administrator roles is sorted out. After the Forum is restarted, hopefully within a few hours, all moderator and posting capabilities should resume as usual and you can continue posting. It is anticipated this admin hold will last a day or two.

Further information will follow as progress occurs.

The JREF understands that this is not a popular decision for some "Forumites" and hears your complaints loud and clear. This decision was not made lightly, and efforts are continuing to locate the forum safely to a new home. This will take some time to sort out. We ask for your understanding and patience as the problems with the forum are sorted out.

What shocking and momentous announcement.

Unless I'm much mistaken, it's every bit as important as this announcement: http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsbeat/23372784

I wonder whether it will be renamed as well? (Actually, I couldn't give a toss so there ).
