I don't know who was running it. LJ did recently delete a bunch of inactive accounts....so I suspect it got caught in that.

But it wasn't inactive - was it? I went over there daily and a lot of the same posts - but others as well - showed up there as here. I don't understand.

Kent's running it. It was the victim of the purge. But it's back now.

Just checked in with Kent. Don't know if he was involved in it or not, so don't know what the reply will be. Will respond again if I hear from him - he's at a big conference, but he's online right now, so could be days or minutes.

It's back up. Kent says thanks.

I don't know the comm but I thought they were only deleting accounts that had never been posted to. One of mine went and I didn't mind; I'd set it up for an RPG that never got going. It's a worry if they're deleting accounts with content.

Hm, is anything on the Specul8ions LJ? I know I friended it, as well as a few others, but never had that in return.

It is a place I will never forget, met quite a few good writers and now long efriends on the old site and Rumor Mill.

Thanks, everybody - I don't know if the board does friend people back or not...I never have quite understood how LJ works. After Speculations, and Kent's brilliant perl script (the best community board EVER), I'm spoiled, I guess.

And zounds! I had forgotten it was he himself who set up Specul8ons! Fie on me! Fie! Fie! Fie! Means I'll have to buy him a drink come BayCon...

OK, going to go visit Specul8ons now, and give it a big slobbery hug.

Well, since Kent never actually posted to his account, just kept it as a means for people to stay in touch, it probably was deleted.

It's there now. (I should check to see if he posted.)
