Hi, Satiba. This forum came close; but, it isn't dead. Moderation is off and we can acquire new members now.

What about this: we pick a new host. TOS sometimes allows transfer of ownership when the host is gone for a long time. The new host would be a regular here (not I) and could fix up the start page and do promotions and run other things. When Tarty returns, the host could offer to return the forum to her.

Nobody. It doesn't cost anything to keep a 'starter' forum open.

Why don't you become the host here? You have lots of postings. You care about this place. So do I; but, you are a 'regular'.

Just email TOS at tos@delphiforums.com and explain that the host has been gone for more than a year and that you wish to become the host and would turn over the forum to Tarty when she returns.

If you like, I could help with the HTML to fix up the start page.

I would love to do that, I know zip-point-nil about what needs to be done (ie. the mechanics of it) but, I have enuf friends whom I believe would help me out =) Thanks for the suggestion...and on the glorious day that our beloved, benevolent Tarty should return, she can have it right back =)

Thanks Si! *hugs*

Good! It will be fine to have an active host here again. And just in time for celebrating Samhain/Halloween.
