Just wonder what happens to the forum. It seems to be down for days now. Anyone knows more? :)

I'm not raising this to cast aspersion on the theory that a replacement for the official eDonkey forum is being sought, however, if the server really is defunct, and I'm not saying it isn't, there should be a notice somewhere. The fact there isn't makes me suspicious. Am I alone in thinking something doesn't add up? For one thing, the MemberList continues to grow. How is that possible - I mean, if the forum is out of commission - to put it nicely?

I wasn't aware the memberlist was growing. As far as the server goes it had been a bit unstable for a while, and personally I have no reason to doubt the "validity" of the failed server statement.

I has long been known that MM are not particualy good at communicating with their users, or indeed their forum moderators etc.. so the fact there is no message on the website to advise that the forum is down does not suprise me at all.

Your optimism helps to dispel my suspicion that MM's failure to communicate is a sign of indifference, or worse.

I don't know much about servers. I do know files.edonkey.com is not dead.

It was dead for a little while, then a backup was made available on a different server. I'm not really sure why they couldn't do that with the forum though...

I guess it's back to the waiting game. What's a month, give or take, anyway?
