    I would be interested, but I definitely think you should definitely have Zyiros on your team if he's interested. He's always active and is very knowledgeable.

    No worries. The site needs all the focus it can get.

    Sorry for changing stuff around but that free software was terrible.

    I was a moderator (the only one left) when the site died last time, also did some reviews (which I still have one product to review right now). I was semi-active checking in every week or so. If you need either of those, let me know.

    Thanks, good to see most (if not all) of the old (active) community still here. I hope to see this site flourish again.

    Did you ever speak to the original owner before the site went down, or communicated with him at all? It was really only you active on the site from what I saw when I checked in from time to time.

    I don't think he cared too much if he let the domain expire.
    Yes @tinyman392 you can have your position back.But you should write your stuff on the blog. www.ifans.com If you want to I can set up an account for you there.

    Bobby was around if I needed to ask him something. So if I PMed him, he would respond. If we were to theoretically ping him on the website, he would most likely respond within the week. Though as @TheBronx stated, it seemed as if he had already given up on the site.

    Ok, that sounds good.

    Tbh, Bobby was the soul reason it failed tbh. He throttled and banned many users who were the life of the forum (me included) and many of us left. He managed the forum well but didn't manage the members well, it seemed he was too blinded by his power of owner on a website on the world wide web.

    Before the throttling and bannings the community was thriving.

    Bobby had a particular vision for the website. Part of it I agreed with, part of it I didn't. I tended to stay away from banning users personally, but still needed to from time to time (typically if it was piracy/spam related or if someone went out of their way to report it or PM me).

    I feel that one of the primary reasons it did fail was that we failed to obtain new users to replace the old. Although we do have some old users, they are in their mid-20's now and probably wouldn't be too active as they had lived to lead.
