So what happened? How did the RCG rise like a phoenix?

Post by mackdaddyg » Mon Apr 24, 2017 1:31 am

Neal Umphred made a comment that the Guild was coming back. I took a chance and came back here after seeing the Guild drown in a sea of Russian spam and indifferent moderation.

I'm happy to see the Guild is back for now. Is it going to stay that way? What happened?

@mackdaddyg:
  • Firstly, Welcome back mate! It's nice to see the long-time member drip in again one by one.
    There are several moderators now, for instance "Kimmo", "Kat1379" and "CactusCowboy, though he isn't much around here yet unfortunately! There are more mods, that I can't remember.

    They changed the registering procedure to the 'Guild', now each new membership request has to be approved by the mods first. Apart from this, the owner of the domain (Record Collectors Guild) doesn't care much about the forum at all. The rest all up to the mods, for further details contact one of them please.

    I hope to hear more from you in the future, I guess now it's up the members to keep the whole thing going. .Image

Well, either way I'm glad it's back for now at least. I feel bad for whomever it was (Graeme I think?) who tried really really hard to keep this going the last time but gave up after he got no help from whoever owns this now.

If somebody different is in charge, please keep the spammers off of here.

I don't know anybody personally who has posted here, but I hope they make their way back someday.

You're right, it was "Greame" and the domian owners left him in a complete mess without any support. .Image

Welcome back mackdaddyg!

I used to check back now and then to see if the RCG was fixed and found that the spam got to the point that the forums could no longer be accessed.

Thanks to all those who got it back up and running.

Now, if we could only contact the RCG veterans to let them know.
