Which is understandable.

Still it seems very abrupt to all of a sudden without warning to have the forum inaccessible. Couldn't have there been at least a message on the 16 types saying something like, "since no one volunteered to own or run the forum, the 16 types will go down indefinitely at this date and time". That and give a list of other alternative socionics forums to join. I'm not so sure everyone was aware the other forums out there. There were people on that forum whose posts I really enjoyed reading and that I also communicated via PM, that aren't on any of the other forums as far as I know and I have no way now of contacting them now.
Just for the sake of correctness, this deduction is baseless:
- there was interest in owning the forum, among the people who visibly expressed the wish to buy it were tereg, hkkmr, Maritsa. And Gilly asked the offers on private, it's rather likely that he had much more.
- What is "understandable"?
- the website went down unexpectedly other times as well, when tereg was doing different things.
- lately, tereg expressed the wish for a big change, to change the forum layout, it's very likely that something went wrong again or required urgency matching payment due dates, or something

Your concern is understandable about missing people and I have no wish on the matter, but I disagree with making such subjective speculation - unless you're a Delta NF -, what's your t16t username?
