Is this forum dead?!

I know that my activity has dropped as well, inevitably, but despite an
earlier announcement, the move of curefans didn't materialize to date
and I wonder why. This is no criticism but just a comment. You've already
criticized me for (re-)opening threads. This led to a certain kind of self-censorship.
Is that what you and maybe others want? I don't know. I'm not half as engaged like
e.g. Susanna but I refused to have an fb account, for good reasons. Somebody missed
a proper fan reaction here in 2009 and I felt the same at times. No reason for argument.
Notre esprit ne supporte pas un degré trop
élevé de précision, et nous avons plus de joie
dans l'indéfini: de là, la puissance de l'amour et
de musique; de là, les mystagogies hallucinantes.

apologies for the lack of communication on this, this is my bad. But the forum is currently running in another server, which is much faster and secure. This was step one, and step two would be the upgrade. I still need to find time to do this, pretty busy at work plus Slowdive (my other favorite band) is very active this year so my time for The Cure is a bit reduced (shame on me!)... but I promise to come here every day and post a few things every week. Long life to The Cure and long life to Curefans.com! :smth023

I'm sorry if I disappeared but I've never written so much anyway. But I read the forum quite often.

I don't think it is dead, it's just hibernated. I'm sure it will emerge soon when news from the band will be released.

And thanks to David and to all the others who keep it alive
Lets my memory be perverted to the uses    
Of lying and oppression.    
My lovers and their children must not be dispossessed of me;
I would be the untarnished possession forever
Of those for whom I lived.

This was not really meant as "criticism", just a thought - wouldn't it be easier to create a new topic instead of posting in an old 2009 thread (talking about "strange posts" which are long deleted)?  :?

Now I think this forum is (un)dead, users online in the last few days included "Nosferat" and "deadkarma".  :lol:

the forum is not dead... people is just depressed cause there are not much Cure news lately. There are always shy people watching at the forum but not posting. As Cure news will arrive (a 2018 Tour?) then there will be more activity ;)

I know, I was joking ("Nosferat" sounding a bit like a vampire, aka one of the "undead")...
Of course, in times with no news it will be pretty quiet. Each forum has lots of readers and not so many who do post, that is pretty normal.
But I got to say, despite no news, it's been pretty busy here recently!  :smth023
