Hello Ron, Welcome back to the board. As far as I can tell there has been no formal notification so far to previous board members that this site is open again. I only discovered it myself yesterday by accident.

I am hopefully assuming this is now permanent otherwise I cannot see why someone has gone through the trouble of reinstating it. In a attempt to inform previous board members about the sites reappearance I sent a message on an existing thread on East Ham High Street. I chose that thread as many people had contributed to it in the past. I am hoping that if the automated mailing system still works which I think it does, then anyone who still has the same email address they had previously would get the message about the site apparently being open again.

It seems at the moment its a case of spreading the word wherever one can.

Mick

Good to see everyone gradually coming back. I rang Ed Styles this morning to tell him. Hopefully all the old members will be sent emails although I haven't received one yet. I'll try and contact Jenni at Newham Archives when they open on Tuesday to find out what's happening.

Welcome back to the board Ed. It's nice to see old names gradually trickling back as word starts to get around the board is open once again.

Ev,ning all ,  keep loging on in the hope that the word has spread that were open for business , but it seems that,s not the case . I am very tempted to open my account on Dock related and Shipping posts , but I,m sure you have all heard my ramblings over the years on this , so has the Board contacted all the old members to inform them it,s open , and when and if they do ,and new members come flooding in I shall be more than happy to bore the pants off them with my related memories .
 All the Ed

ED, I would certainly write about your experiences. It does take time for word to get around that this board now appears to be up and running again. Apart for valued contributors to this board in the past, it also needs to attract new members. One way of doing that is by starting new threads as that not only shows the board is alive and well, Internet search engines will also pick up your contributions and direct people to the board.

As you will have noticed I have already added a couple of new threads and will try adding some more.

When I spoke to Jenni she said they were going to try and email everyone but as there are only 2 of them in the office it was going to be a difficult task.
I was wondering if those of us who know the Forum is back namely Mick, Ed, Ron, Doug and myself would be able to send private messages to old members using the Forum message section.If I remember right when we received private messages before it used to alert you on our main computer's email messages. Then people would know it's up and running. Just a thought!
