YES, but not because of what you stated in your question. I'm having no blog issues. Abandonment issues by out "leadership" yes; tech issues no.

Oh where, oh where did Bob & company go?

I don't know but, thankfully most of us have a back-up plan in the event this site goes away. Of course, I hope it doesn't, Roy!

That's a big of a leap, don't you think?  A little bit of difficulty accessing Active Brain, and you automatically assume the worst?

Hard to say. Hopefully most members have a back-up plan if AR closes down. I guess it's a risk we take whne blogging on rented platforms, or platforms we have no control over.

no, we're just taking turns.... I had my turn yesterday Roy Kelley and others were commenting.... I would get an email...and I responded via that email... if I clicked on the title of the post, I was there.... if I clicked directly on the post via AR, I would receive that message.... took a few hours, but it is now fixed...

I have not really had issues except for a few hours of being unable to log on the other day due to heavy activity in the Rain (but that happens from time t time). Not sure why this would spell the demise of Active Rain.

It's more likely some server modification was made or they were attempting to clean-up the code base and it caused the glitch.

OK, so here is some interesting research. I often share my AR articles on FB. I just tried a couple of links back to AR. If I shared the article to FB using the full path name of the Blog post it works fine. However, if I shared it using the Short URL, it does not load when clicked from FB.

Your results may differ, but this is what I have found.

IMHO, the issue logging in the other day is much less frequent that the "red curtain" in the old days and do not see this issue as a "demise" at all.  Technical issue that got resolved rather quickly.
