I just heard back from proteus, and he has done nothing to steer me away from this course of action. I must now retire, meditate, and settle my nerves. Back soon.

On November 1, after realizing I had not yet done so, I messaged proteus to inform him that I am willing to take on the job.

Now that is some great news! Best of luck, hope it goes smoothly.

And thanks for stepping in as Head Honcho, good sir!

Persons intending to travel by open carriage should select a seat with their backs to the engine, by which means they will avoid the ashes emitted therefrom, that in travelling generally, but particularly through the tunnels, prove a great annoyance; the carriage farthest from the engine will in consequence be found the most desirable.

I really hate to ask, but any updates on this? The end of the year is approaching rapidly, plus I'm a nosy curtain twitcher type of person  Grin

Is the forum safe and behind the scenes Admin transfer going ahead as planned?

Thanks for keeping us informed.

In case there is a disruption, may I also offer my own message-board community, the Never Was Lounge?

It's a relaunch of the Smoking Lounge, which was created in 2008.

Thank you. That's very generous of you. But supposing some from BG go there for a visit. I've read a couple of not so nice comments on Steampunk and Steampunk followers there...How would that go?

I can't speak for everyone, but the members I know and myself have been steampunk fans for 10+ years. We love the style. We love this movement. It's why we've volunteered so much time through the years to blogs, online magazines, printable publications, forums and social media.

That doesn't mean we can't be (self-)critical.

What has differentiated the Smoking, now Never Was, Lounge from the start is that we do allow political discussions.

There are many views on what steampunk is and what it should be. Never Was Magazine and Never Was Lounge are platforms to have those discussions.

Politics have their place, just not in this forum. And what I read at Neverwas Magazine in April / June of 2019 and July of this year was pegging the whole of Steampunk in a very narrow political category.

However, all things being equal, I do enjoy your Atlantic Sentinel. It's right on point, because rebuilding transatlantic ties is exactly what we desperately need to do in the global stage right now. There are a lot of bad actors globally who'd rather see us apart. And I will shut up now before I get myself and others in trouble.

I also think that I should probably start compiling certain resources like the Steampunk Brands list. I don't know if we should follow Prof Marvel's suggestion of using that internet archive to save the contents of brassgoggles.co.uk. I've never used it, and sadly the professor is taking a sabbatical precisely because of those types of political discussions. Maybe I can contact him directly.

Exactly! So that's a difference members should be aware of if they're considering joining.

I don't want to hijack this thread with a substantive debate about the politics of steampunk, but always happy to have that discussion elsewhere. (And thank you for the kind words about the Atlantic Sentinel!)

I'm also happy to host archives or resources at Never Was. We already host the archive of Kevin Steele's Steampunk Books website. Feel free to reach out at nick.ottens@neverwasmag.com.

Having discovered this Forum more or less by accident very recently, I'm still finding my way around.

It seems to me that the costs of running the site could be easily met by donations.  In the last month I have received an e-mail from Wikipedia asking for a small donation, and made one; and I made a donation when I downloaded a copy of LibreOffice.  I've made a donation to BrassGoggles before replying to this thread. 

I appreciate that a great deal of excellent work has been done by volunteers in the past.  It would be a shame if this were to be archived, or worse, lost completely.  I've already come across a couple of old posts where a link to images can no longer be followed. 

So, a vote for suggestion #2

P.S.  I did my first course on information retrieval in the year after I last saw a British Rail steam locomotive (in Preston Station). They were still using punch cards then (and payroll programs ran in 1K of memory....)

Any News on this subject? Don't tell me, still waiting on Proteus to pull out that finger. Roll Eyes

Just get on with it for @&^% sake would be my message to him, IF this is going to happen and von Corax is still up for the job, do it now and stop us members constantly wondering what is going to happen to our beloved forum.

That will do, before I go into rant mode........this has been dragging on for far too long........

We need every Member to register at https://sparegoggles.forumotion.net/

We need an announcement to be pinned.

Anyone know if, or how, we can do that?
