With the assistance of the-wizard, I am now Administrator for Brass Goggles. Don't ask me to do anything just yet; I've a lot of reading and exploring to do!

I'm happy for you or sorry that happened. Having an admin though, that's a good thing, surely. I've the bubbly on ice--just let me know when to break it out, and celebrations all 'round.
Don't let these shakes go on, it's time we had a break from it. Send me to the rear! Where the Tides of Madness swell, and men sliding into Hell...

Oh please don't let these shakes go on...

Congratulations/ commiserations (delete as necessary).  Noting The Wizard's comments re: cessation due to non-payment, are funds in order or do we need to send the hat around?
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've just reread this entire thread and I still can't remember — did anyone volunteer to be backup Admin?

I think various people did. I might have said I can be a backup for the backup because of my professional IT background, even though it is rather academic rather than hands-on, and my 10+ years experience at moderating and designing wikis and running gaming servers.

I said:
"So, back to the question asked by proteus, who is willing to take on one of Admin roles?
And I ask, who is (still) willing to be a Moderator?
I put my hand up as a part-time/drop dead/emergency Mod."

Yeah, I volunteered, sort of. If you need a third Admin, it can be me as I have the technical understanding of databases and information systems as well as information management and governance.

Splendid. I've just added you to the Admin membergroup. You'll need to log out and back in to see your new privileges.

You don't have DBA access yet; that won't come until we have a permanent host set up.

So the wizard chap was legit then. Thank you von Corax for finally being able to become our Captain of this fine forum. I'm sure you have already done a lot of work behind the scenes and we appreciate your effort and commitment.

I for one welcome our new Sorontar overlord.
Same here, and thank you Sorontar for volunteering to assist!

Congratulations as well!  ;D Glad to see there is someone(s) at the helm to keep this Airship afloat ready to engage the air krakens should they get "Antsy" and want to engage! ;)

Glad to hear there's some movement on resurrecting BG. Any word on the domain registration? From the Wizard's post it sounded like that would be one of the major problems still left to deal with.

We've registered brassgoggles.net and pointed it here. I've also placed a backorder on brassgoggles.org, but there's been no progress on obtaining control of brassgoggles.co.uk.

Thanks for the update! Hopefully everything can be sorted out reasonably satisfactorily. I know this has been something of a nightmare, so thank you for taking this lumbering beast over.
