I sure will miss the place. I had many great years on there in my time. I think i was a member for most of the last 10 yrs. Always as Smee, though id delete my account every so often and start a new one. RIP @u2Forum

The @u2 forum is taunting me that I have "1 unread message" - only it wont let me see who it is from let alone read it.  However, I think this is an indication that the content of the forum may not be entirely trashed when they relaunch it.

Given that the forum is in "Maintenance Mode", I think that it's safe to assume that it will return someday.

It's possible that they haven't definitively decided to pull the plug for good and are keeping it around just in case they do, someday, decide to launch it again. I wouldn't say this is a definite sign that they're coming back, though I do hope that they do.

Yeah I hope so - although I think we are getting enough critical mass here already that I doubt itíll ever be what it once was .... Agree with ShadowMac I donít think the mods have decided anything

Just to add - I know that one of the admin on that site "singnomore" describes the closure the other day as "taking a breather".

Nothing definitive in that statement of course and I can't recall exactly what else was written in the post but there is no hard statement from the people who administrate or moderate on that site about the closure being a permanent one as things stand.

Anyway good luck to them whatever happens.

Yeah, but the end left such a bad taste in my mouth (ahem) that I'll probably just stay here if/when they reboot. I just got so sick of the attempted hegemony over there.
