Why was the old Childfree forum removed and deleted?

You'd have to ask the owners. We offered to buy it from them and they sent our money back. So we rebuilt as best we could.

Did they give you a reason as to why your money was sent back?

Also, it's really sad that this forum is much quieter than the old forum was. :(

The old forum had been going for a lot of years and that one was born out of a splinter group from another forum....so, it had time to build up it's membership. Considering this one has been going just a few months it's not doing too badly, time will tell! :D

What was the original forum? After all, you talked about the old forum being born out of a splinter group from yet another forum--so what was that other forum?

Also, I would have thought that most of the members of the old forum would have already joined this forum by now. For instance, Maura. :(

While we hope that more old members will find there way over here, there is no association with the old site, despite the similar URL. So people have to search for it. As it is they're probably hitting their bookmark for the old site, seeing it's no longer there, and then thinking it's just gone.

It would have been nice to give a warning to people before the old site disappeared, though.

^^^ Yep. We didn't even get a warning ourselves.

I think it was called 'Bella', but that was way before my time.....I think katherine knows more about it, maybe next time she logs in she can give more background.

It was BellaOnline. I think it's still going, but now their control-freak admin (who, as it turns out, is a deadbeat mom) controls it with an iron fist, which is why we left. These days it's a breeder-apologist site that considers "childfree" as people whose kids have left home.
