I don't think, that they could cope with the eldritch stains in the cellar.

Are the number of spammers dropping, as I've not seen that many lately?

Maybe being caught before they appear!
But, overall, I have noticed a fall in online & email spammers, and an increase in telephone ones - maybe they work in cycles!?

There is a fault with this entire site.

Nobody has been able to join and post as a Member since May 4th 2019 nearly 5 months ago.

That's both genuine Steampunks and interested parties trying to join AND all the Spammers.

The fault would have been reported but nobody is able to contact Proteus.

We are unable to fix it because none of the Moderators have access to the guts of the machine. We basically have Managers but no Engineers.

Proteus hasn't answered PMs on this site.
Nobody knows or has come forward with a direct personal email address for him.
He has not responded to emails associated with the Forum donation page which is supposed to pay for the upkeep and maintenance of this website and Forum. I've cancelled by payments.
There has been no response on the official 'brasstech' Twitter feed.
His personal website is a 'parked domain'.
Proteus has not posted a thing himself since May 2018.
I've even tried posting messages on the Spare Goggles site set up for circumstances like this Forum going down.
https://sparegoggles.forumotion.net/

It's my fear that this Forum has been left to die and he's simply lost interest.
Either that or he has catastrophic personal problems and this Forum is not of great concern to him.
There's no way to tell because nobody has seen or heard from him for nearly a year and a half.

I would suggest that if anybody wishes to remain in long term contact with others on this Forum that you exchange personal details and emails as soon as possible.

Because if the Forum goes down, as it has been known to do from time to time, there is no one to bring it back on line. It'll be dead and gone.

Unless ANYONE has any way of contacting Proteus.

Many of us are in contact on Facebook but I know many here who don't want to connect that way.

I don't know what else I can tell you.

Sorry.

We need a backup plan.

I recommend as soon as we get hold of the master he shall nominate a vice-master to keep the kettle on when he is not available.
Or, in case he has really lost interest (which I doubt) he shall hand over the shovel to someone else.

What is your opinion?

I would love somebody to come forward with a direct contact with Proteus and I'd love somebody with the technical know how and ability to take over the Forum if he is no longer interested.

But, as I said, nobody has been able to contact him.

I take there isn't a way to hijack the place in the event of his disappeance?

Pm me if anyone wants my Facebook or Discord. by the way. We could set up a Facebook group for contact.
Or a discord server, I suppose.

The trouble is that some of us simply don't do Facebook.

We do currently have the Spare Goggles backup forum.

Who owns brassgoggles.co.uk?
Who owns the sparegoggles account?

The reason I ask is that there is always the option of setting up a new host with new softare (or redirecting brassgoggles to the sparegoggles site) if we wanted. Not ideal I know, but a Plan B if it can be done.

No Facebook, no Twitter, no SnapChat, no nothing like that - I have email and two BBs, one of which is Brassgoggles! (the other relates to music!)
I don't even use the University BB anymore - as a HDR student, there isn't any coursework related stuff that I need.
