As regular visitors will have noticed by now, WD3 is still stuck somewhere in a migration limbo.

For the duration, some of the usual suspects have been meeting on my newly created Facebook page:


If you are a WD3 member in fear of going cold turkey, feel free to drop in as well.

Gung, any ideas when it's coming back?


Personal logo Gungnir Supporting Member of TMP19 Nov 2011 12:55 a.m. PST

Absolutely not. The provider posted an alarmingly vague message on their site.

One can only hope.

Flat Beer and Cold Pizza Inactive Member19 Nov 2011 2:54 a.m. PST

Fingers crossed…

Getting bloody ridiculous now if you ask me. And looking at their own forums there's no official answers to any of the questions asking the same thing.

Belisarius19 Nov 2011 5:05 a.m. PST

They keep saying we are working on it or soon. Sounds like some one went oops. I know what happens when I oops at work and that is not good

Time to send in the Duck

As even when it is working I never get more than two visits before it makes me log in all over again I can't say it's much different to usual

Missing you, kiss, kiss.

Grizzlymc Inactive Member19 Nov 2011 8:37 a.m. PST

So, they lulled us into a false sense of security, by not doing the migration, now they are waffling about when it will be online – looks like a job for the duck to me!

Shame that I regard facebook as an instrument of the devil.

Personal logo toofatlardies Sponsoring Member of TMP19 Nov 2011 8:59 a.m. PST

Yeah, I can't do Facebook, everytime I go on there they start sending me spam. I shall sit and wait, weeping quietly.


goat major19 Nov 2011 10:35 a.m. PST

I'm getting withdrawal symptoms. I'm even missing the hobbit.

I'm allergic to the whole concept of Facebook so I'm really hoping forumer manage to get the elastic band working again

hohoho Inactive Member19 Nov 2011 11:52 a.m. PST

I guess they don't work weekends either then!

Maybe we should take bets when/if it will be coming back??

olicana19 Nov 2011 2:38 p.m. PST

….kiss me, Hardy……

I'm sorry to report that the situation just escalated.

May Wodan have mercy on us all.


Buff Orpington Inactive Member20 Nov 2011 9:34 a.m. PST

They're doomed.

Belisarius20 Nov 2011 10:04 a.m. PST

They are doomed film at 11

Grizzlymc Inactive Member20 Nov 2011 1:27 p.m. PST

Good show – WD3 for breakfast tomorrow!

Etranger Inactive Member20 Nov 2011 6:28 p.m. PST

Talk about going cold turkey!

definitely time for some hot duck action….. grin

Burning and pillaging my way toward St Louis as we speak, and I have a headcold so I'm feeling mean…

Etranger Inactive Member20 Nov 2011 9:47 p.m. PST

Knew you'd be here!

Same mob "migrated" another wargaming forum I am active on a few weekends ago.

Sorry to say they migrated it straight into the bin. When it finally came back up, it was so badly broken and accidently reorganised that we have started from scratch again.

I miss WD3 so hope the same is not the outcome here.

Personal logo Gungnir Supporting Member of TMP21 Nov 2011 1:04 a.m. PST

I certainly hope we won't have to start a WD4, a main reason for not moving to another provider has always been that it was impossible to move the thousands of post.

Well, perhaps we could have moved the three that actually made some sense.

goat major21 Nov 2011 2:45 a.m. PST

Well its still looking grim this morning – though now i'm not sure whether its Forumer-related-incompetence or Duck-related-carnage that is to blame.

I feel sad that i missed the three sensible posts and now may never see them at all …..

hohoho Inactive Member21 Nov 2011 3:20 a.m. PST

There were three? I think I only ever saw the one. Where were you hiding the other two eh mousie?

Buff Orpington Inactive Member21 Nov 2011 3:33 a.m. PST

Can they at least save the role playing thread?

goat major21 Nov 2011 3:40 a.m. PST

but just think how much fun we will have restoring it Buff

Grizzlymc Inactive Member21 Nov 2011 5:31 a.m. PST

And hijacking the restoration

Grizzlymc Inactive Member21 Nov 2011 5:47 a.m. PST

Well, its up, slow as a wet week and all the wrong colour – but hey when an IT chap says FIX we all know that it is just that he cant spell past the first letter.

Belisarius21 Nov 2011 5:49 a.m. PST

I am in to WD3 but it takes for ever to open up and log in and it says I am in but then kicks me out again when I try to go to the chat section.

Cosmic Reset Inactive Member21 Nov 2011 7:00 a.m. PST

Just checked in there, and it says there is no such forum. Is it being moved, or just more maintaining going on?

Buff Orpington Inactive Member21 Nov 2011 7:06 a.m. PST

Slower than a slow thing at the moment, needs a new hampster for the treadwheel.

Personal logo Gungnir Supporting Member of TMP21 Nov 2011 7:33 a.m. PST

Buff, Purple isn't allowed hamsters anymore since that last episode.

I think it would be smarter to connect the forum to a dynamo powered by Eccles' bike.

goat major21 Nov 2011 7:50 a.m. PST

which is perfect because then, of course, we can blame Eccles

Vintage Wargaming21 Nov 2011 8:59 a.m. PST

Can they at least save the role playing thread?

That thread has been single handedly reinforcing stereotypes of wargamers for quite long enough

hohoho Inactive Member22 Nov 2011 3:06 a.m. PST

And your point is? If you don't like it, don't look at the flaming thing. sheesh.

Vintage Wargaming22 Nov 2011 3:25 a.m. PST

Perhaps you missed the joke

Vintage Wargaming22 Nov 2011 3:25 a.m. PST

I think you missed the joke

hohoho Inactive Member22 Nov 2011 9:38 a.m. PST

Only since you forgot to include one.
