Since the Brits have been nice enough to allow us to stay here temporarily while another site is set up for us (Thanks Bad_2_The_Bone!), we should respect their wishes and move over here. Any matters pertaining to gijargon (or whatever for that matter) may be posted under this thread.

Why does it have to be temporary?

I'm a permanent member...have been since last August.

Not being pushed away chaps but not all members will apreciate the crudeness of the NAAFI bar.

I just received word from the dreaded one LNV,

Staff has decided to permenantly shut down gijargon.com,

I think Rocketeer's stunt put him over the edge.

I have a forward from staff not sure if I'm allowed to post it

I don't have a problem w/ you staying. I happen to like this site as well, and I plan on making it one of my regular haunts.

I just noticed that several arrse members were hinting that we move the majority of jargon business over here, so I started this thread.

Doesn't surprise me. Sad, but not a surprise.

Not right that Rocketeer should carry the can for LNVs selfishness

He did what anyone would do in that position.

Doe anyone have a contact address for this staff puff, and does anyone know if the site is for sale?

Yes your right. This is the right forum for jargon safe harbor. Just talked to one of the mods. Arrse has gave jargons a nice welcome here. We will follow by their rules. As jargons regroups. The new site format is a PHP
now we have to get it hosted. We are putting in long hours to get this up and running as fast as we can. My department is on overtime getting this done. Any new info. I will post here. OK?

Message from Staff at Gijargon.com

I am out of the jargon business. All the moderators cleared out and my
post stated
that the site remained open only because you remained. They saw fit to
block you
again so the site came down. I don't have time for the bickering, fighting
and
name-calling. And that was just the moderators! I don't have time to
oversee the
messages. You noticed I hadn't really posted since last May. That was when
I went
into business for myself. The site remained open only because of
moderators. Now
moderators cannot get along, most moderators never cleaned up the board. I
just
don't need the headache.

Thanks for all you tremendous help. And all the moderators who helped.

(Staff)

Cheers, seems he was unaware of what was going on.

The board mainly moderated itself, and the only person in need of moderation caused the downfall of the site.

Yep. Too bad he never had time to take a look and see what was actually going on. Things might have been different otherwise.

Very true, MDN. Rocketeer and I have the honor of being the only two to ever ban the old girl! :D

Even though the site is gone, I'm glad he did it.

So this is where the "sane" membership has landed eh?

Well, figure I'll pull up a chair on this side of the pond for a while myself. Only question...where the hell's the damn bar, I need a drink.

AF_Lt... good to see you, lad...

Wouldn't go so far as to classify those here as the sane members...but certainly a large number of the rats that jumped from the Good Ship Jargon as she sank managed to swim here...the ARRSEholes were kind enough to toss out a few life preservers along with the insults and most of us emerged dry if bruised..

steps are afoot to perform a ressurection of Jargon for the North American contingent and guests... nuff said [ nudge nudge wink wink ... say no more ]

stick around,, read some of the crap that passes for the Queen's English these days and prepare to duck because the Brits are all ******* and mad as hatters [ though not as well dressed ]

glad to see you survived intact...
