Yep. The forum's still here, isn't it? And still no official announcement, right?

Well its not the lack of an official announcement that troubles me. Its the lack of contact from Blake Barber, and the fact that no one seems to be willing to divulge the critical piece of information, that is the date of closing. Perhaps its the end of the year?

also it does not compute that they would close the forums before they hire a CTO.

I still think the plan is to revamp the site and update the forum software, and that means this forum and all threads are being wiped clean, but a new forum will then begin here. In which case, we'll all come back.

I don't think that's the plan.  I think the LvMI is downsizing.

I had always been impressed by the fact that there are a surprising number of individuals who never use their minds if they can avoid it, and an equal number who do use their minds, but in an amazingly stupid way. - Carl Jung, Man and His Symbols

Here may be another substitute to consider: http://dailyanarchist.com/forum/ The forum of The Daily Anarchist site. 16950 Posts, 1665 Topics, 411 Members. Something to bring to the attention of those who will join all the replacement forums.

(Can't find the thread where it was asked where will everyone be moving to right now, so posting here.)

Sooo... anything new about this topic? Like an estimate for when the move is supposed to happen, or some declaration from the powers that be?

Like a good libertarian, I need direction from those higher up!

Allow me.

Like a giant zeppelin with a small leak, this forum is slowly dying.

The quality posters have found their way to http://libertyhq.freeforums.org/, which is really cooking.

Oh, you

 

But on a serious note, LibertyHQ is slowly pulling together. Here is the prototype of the main page:

In case the link doesn't work (I think I was having some slight DNS issues), here is what it looks like:
