Due to problems related to the Invision and Zetaboards server, and unfortunately beyond the control of the board admin, the Poets on Fire forums went offline today without any warning.
As the host support forums are also offline, there is absolutely no news at the moment to give board members, either good or bad. All I can do is wait and see what is going on. It could be a temporary glitch, lasting maybe a few days, or it could be a permanent issue related to problems at Invision/Zetaboards. Without either of those sites online, the truth may take some time to emerge. Or the board could be back online within a few hours.
Meanwhile, I suggest members who see this message congregate back at the original home site, which is still extant (a ForumforFree site) at The Poem forum. If you could also pass this message on to others via email or personal blogs, I'd be very grateful.
If you are not a member of The Poem forum, it's easy enough to join and continue the discussions of contemporary poetry there.
