does anyone use Pepipoo??
« on: February 13, 2024, 07:46:18 am »
It seems rumours of its passing were greatly exaggerated?

Yet, my 'temporary' suspension until 10 years ago is still in place!

Pepipoo is still active as in being in use, but there is still no administrator, and also response times can be very lengthy at times. I do wonder if the server is in the middle of the Gobi Desert, or maybe somewhere on the Steppes of Asia ! To be honest, I prefer the new ftla.uk site because it is more up-to-date software wise and also has more room for files etc.
Notwithstanding this, I still respond to new OPs on Pepipoo.

What was your egregious infringement?

NFI - you tell me??!! Once you're suspended or banned all links are lost sol no-one can ever know as you don't find out until you log in.....and can't. It was 3-4 months ago.

Nope. Do you not have a list of suspended (prob by you) members and when the unexplained suspensions should end?

Nope. Anyway, it would be a long list bearing in mind all the advertising spammers etc.

I believe the admin is back, but not very active. Unless the original owner sold the domain to someone else so they could renew it, I don't see how anyone else has managed to renew it to 2028.

There's been a few posts back and forth with them on the forum, with offers of help with the board, but then nothing more.

Realistically there was going to be an absolute certainty that it would have disappeared as of earlier this month due to a domain expiring. But as that domain was renewed, by someone, presumed the admin, then it won't.

Well it's not been there for over 30 hours now...maybe it's happened at last.
Bus driving since 1973. My advice, if you have a PSV licence, destroy it when you get to 65 or you'll be forever in demand.
