If I leave for one week there won't be any members left here and the search engines will write this place off as a spam container. I know he's going though some stuff right now but he hasn't even logged in almost three months. It's not my problem, not my responsibility, but I just can't bring myself to let TF sink once and for all.

I wonder if maybe TF has just run its course.

It seems to me that the trend is away from free-standing, community-managed discussion groups such as this, and toward forums established within a larger entity (Facebook, Google Groups, LinkedIn, certain listservs. Maybe even Twitter). A number of other forums I've belonged to have also died in the past few months.

Sadly I agree. Forums overall seem to be taking a downturn. Furthermore the market TF was going to go after may be a pointless pursuit. At this point I've lost all hope I had for the online freelancing market; people who pay decent money just hire a local freelancer.

I'm getting there. I sent Artashes an email out two days ago explaining his situation (from my point of view anyways) and won't leave for at least 5 more days in waiting for a reply. If I don't get a reply in five days I'm done, I'm demoting myself and deleting the cPanel info I used to re-promote myself last time. Sadly coming here will be a moot point almost immediately, we'll look like talkPHP looks currently.

t's a little different since when you two left there was existing staff. My leaving, while essentially the same thing, leaves no staff.

You don't show up as staff.

Artashes told me why he's been so busy but that wasn't it. Maybe it's a factor.

That's it for me, I demoted myself and removed any access I have to reverse the decision.

It's been an honor.

I reckon he has simply removed himself from showing up in the active users list.

He regularly posts at hostingdiscussion.com.

Nothing we can do.

If he logged on as invisible I would have seen it.

I'm not surprised. People give this guy far too much credit because he paraded around with contests and ideas to give people a false sense of hope.

I don't doubt that he bought TFL so he could use this as a donkey for his hosting company.

PS - I make it a habit to come back every 6-12 months so I can confirm how Artashes was always a useless dou/che/bag.

Edit - Also, one of you dorks should just make a new forum so we can have huge circlejerks on it. WHT is boring and Reddit webdev subs are only fun for so long. Do it, thx.
