I'm outta here. So long and thanks for all the fish.

I don't even know if any members will see this. I doubt it. In any case, what was once a good thing has been turned into dung.

Thanks for all the interaction up to now. It has been great, but I guess all good things come to an end.

See ya!
I have deleted all my posts and am no longer involved here. Too many spammers.

Hey Guys,

I am trying to build a new forum and am in discussions with the current owners of the site to get hold of the DB and maybe bring the old discussions across. www.satonz.nz

yeah, and many people said when this site was taken over from Nolan that this would happen. Pity that such a amazing, informational site has come to a halt >:( >:(

Far better to have this site updated and fixed up. If it were managed, obviously. Moving content to a new site will lose so much search engine goodwill.

Yeah, it is pretty sad. I honestly feel that those who bought the site from Nolan thought it would be an income stream and "see an immigration advisor" became the standard answer in many posts. When that didn't work they just left the site to it's own devices and now it's a spammy mess.

So sad.  Thanks for the chats and the great advice guys! 

Thanks ShaunB for starting something new, as well as looking into whether this forum can be fixed.  I've popped into the new forum before and it looks like a good alternative - will just take getting used to.  Good to know that you are trying to keep the conversations going - thanks!

Oh man, best of luck with all those changes, Shaun!  I hope the new house and job will be everything you hoped it would be and more.

I bet this forum started out slowly too.  I have no doubt the new one you've created will blossom into a lovely place to hang out in the near future.
