Came here today by chance. Not sure if members will ever come back to this once great forum.

I have been checking this forum every day since it went down - I wonder if there is a way to send an email notification to all the members.

Is it back for good?  Most users have migrated to Pakistan defence forum where they post or lurk.

A lot of people were annoyed over the constant outages preceding the closure of the site and then the sudden closure itself.

If it's going to continue like it was before with the outages then there is going to be minimal traffic and engagement here.

Well, glad to hare from a Admin / Mod. I am sure the site will get most of the crowd back and some new ones.

The outage itself isn’t the main issue. I think what frustrates many members is the lack of communication. The Pakdef twitter account was active and in use. Moderators/administrators could have used that account to update members. But they didn’t despite previous requests.

PakDef Members,

I just wanted to let you know that I have brought the site/forums back online.  Anyone that has an issue can feel free to contact me if there is any issues with the forums.  I will maintain the digital side of things and make sure we stay up as long as SyedA is okay with it.  Seems like everything is working and functional so far.

I am sorry that we closed doors but that decision was made because of the fact that participation was falling on the site.  And I was closing down UrbanPK so the site would have needed a new server.  The decision to shut down was a joint decision after I had to take a step back from the digital sphere a little bit for work.  I will keep both UrbanPK and PakDef up despite participation as long as SyedA is okay with it.
