Sphere problems / Pruning
Alex and I have had a bit of a fraught time recently, as you are aware, and would like to thank you all for your forbearance; thank you, too, for the kind messages of support we've received.
Eratosphere is precious to us all, and the recent hacks and threats to its continuity have caused a lot of stress.
However, through the tremendous hard work put in by Alex the site is again strong. (I wish I could reach out to those who inexplicably wish us harm... there's more than enough of man's inhumanity to man in the world already, surely??)
The ''End of Year Pruning" has been postponed several times because of technical problems, but is now scheduled for this Thursday evening, 7th February, some time after 9pm GMT so please save in some format, or print out, any threads you wish to preserve; across the Metrical, Non Metrical, Deep End, Fiction and Translation boards many threads will disappear.
Unfortunately, hacks sometimes result in us losing some data, ...whereas the 6-monthly(-ish) pruning of some of the boards is a deliberate removal of data, to help the smooth running of Eratosphere, so please go and save your threads!
If you have any queries please ask, or PM me.
All the best,
