Yes, we need a moderator, but the two assigned are both AWOL ... as is the Webmaster.  Unless one of the three reappear, this is a zombie forum.

This is how a venue dies.

I suspect that this would have been the fate of the paleo 4T web site, if the plug hadn't been pulled when it was.

I have a Fourth Turning server. We should all migrate there temporarily until the spam issue is solved. Here's the invite, I hope spammers won't raid it: https://discord.gg/vpVyQMMx

Is it a public server, or is it private?  I couldn't locate it on Discord by searching, and the Invite is invalid for some reason.

Time to shut ‘er down.  For those posters—past and present—who still think Fourth Turning theory has some relevance to the historical events now unfolding, close this incarnation of the forum, and start over with version 3.0.  Save the most salient threads, as was done when the original forum was closed, and prune those that are now quite passé (e.g., virtually all threads pertaining to Trump). Could do with  some guidelines, too—and a real moderator with respect to content and decorum.

Just saying...

With full respect to Teacher in Exile, Eric's FB option may be the only viable one long term.  I signed-up, and I'm about as anti-Facebook as they come.

I even tried a personal attack against one of those bots (basically an F-bomb, which is ordinarily out of my character) to draw attention by the Webmaster. I'm in good standing, and I can take a little hit if necessary to save this Forum.

Those bots are in practice a denial of service, category "nuisance".

Who knows? Maybe if I could learn how to do it I could establish a site that makes its money selling classified ads that fit a role that local newspapers used to meet. Cost would be based upon the geographic reach and the size of the population of the surrounding area (a classified ad to sell your car within twenty miles of Lagrange, Indiana would be less costly than one in Lagrange, Illinois -- a suburb of Chicago) Of course if you have a reach from Lagrange, Indiana that gets into Chicago it would get a Chicago price. Your choice.

I might link to it with a statement such as "Here is how I make my money, and this is how I support my hobby"... and honest people have no shame about admitting how they make their money.

My wife is the FB person in my household.  She seems to enjoy it, even though many of our friends are so RW that think Biden is a socialist.  I live in a very Red enclave, because it's the only lake in the area that doesn't have a nuclear powerplant.  It's locals or no one, and once away from politics, most are decent people.  We're not friends with the ones who aren't.

I have gone with Eric, but I have my desire to keep this Forum alive. It does have a blockage that must be removed. An enema is in order.

Kinda off topic, but let me ask anyway.  What's your medium?  The arty types in my family are into music and performance.  I have no talent for that or most visual arts either, so I'm just being nosy.  No need to answer if you don't wish to.

--  no  l'll answer. l do ahem *fine* art. l dunno how fine it really is, but l have won ribbons in local art shows. l draw with pastel & conte crayons, graphite & color pencils, & markers. sometimes all in 1 drawing. l paint in acrylics, watercolor, & tempera. On canvas, paper, wood, bisque- which is fired clay. l also pour the clay & hand build pieces. if l don't paint them with acrylics then l use underglazes & glazes. Usually 4 something that needs 2b water tight like a vase or a dish.  l also make collages, l8ly l been doing greeting cards. i also make jewelry, sometimes l make the clay beeds, but usually l use glass or lampwork beeds or semiprecious stones

That's great! I can work with my hands, but it's mostly restricted to carpentry. Don't call me for any furniture. Big Grin

Let me know if you have a catalog.

Until last year when l got laid off due 2 covid & the Governor was telling ppl 2 stay home ( he still is 4 that matter) l've been off work so long l really don't wanna go back & in in a couple months l won't have 2 since some pensions from places where l used 2 work as well as an inheritance annuity will be coming thru. Meanwhile l've been living off a mutual funds account that pays the bills & not much else so l've been steppin up selling the art & a catalog is a good idea
