    Our Admin, Josh, has the domain set for automatic renewal. For some odd reason, a glitch in the system???, it didn't automatically renew this time. Josh has now remedied the situation, and apologises. It's good to know so many of you depend upon our Forum! I know I was certainly out of sorts when I couldn't get in!

    Oh. I see - "Demagoguery is a manipulative approach — often associated with dictators and sleazy politicians — that appeals to the worst nature of people."

    With all the photos of our tortoise, food, plants been posted in this forum, do we really need more "demagoguery"???

    You get weeks after the initial shutdown to pay and get it back. Stealing a domain at expiration is now impossible.

    But but but... the Go Daddy website said they had "agents" that would help me take it over...

    We're just joking here. You are supposed to laugh.

    Wondered why I couldn't login from the computer. I pretty much use the app as its more beneficial with me always on the move and today I have gone into the app no sweat. Had 15mins break at my studio thought I would catch up on the forum and a white screen. My heart nearly sank!! Haha.
