Let's be pragmatic and scientific about this. Many decisions have been superseded by higher authorities. Their details may well be best included in members' specific posts.
They are, but nobody is going to go back and update old threads which have been overtaken by events.

Well I thought with your site(which I say again is more funky)taking over there would be loads of new posts from new members and resurrected old ones from old Members of Peppipoo

Can't you get together with Southpaw and amke this site boogie now.


Get The Rookie involved as well....he's very proactive ??

I'm not sure what you mean - as far as I can see there are "loads of new posts from new members" (and some members, including me, are on PePiPoo also) - there have been 17,000 posts on here in 10 months...

We went through this last June. Eventually Pepipoo arose from the dead.

The problem is that no-one knows whether Pepipoo is permanently or temporarily dead.

Yes, I'm well aware of which site I'm on. Your question seemed to be "Can't you get together with Southpaw and amke this site boogie now."... This site is up and running, and has been for a number of months, hence my confusion as to what your point was.

My problem is that I have a few lice cases on the other site and the OPs may not transfer on to this site.
There are known knowns which, had we known, we would never have wished to know. It is known that this also applies to the known unknowns. However, when one attends a hearing, Mr Rumsfeld's idea that there are also unknown unknowns fails to apply because, anyone who is in the know, knows that unknown unknowns are purely a deception otherwise known as an aleatory experience or also known as a lottery. I know that I know this to be a fact and, in this knowledge, I know that I am fully prepared to present my case but, paradoxically, in full knowledge that the unknown unknowns may well apply in view of some adjudicators' lack of knowing what they ought to know through no fault of their own.

My point was ....it seems a bit terminal for Pepipoo now.

The regular  Posters  on that site will probably need somewhere to weave their magic and get involved with the banter....like before.


Are they all aware of this page/site/domain ??

Some people are trying to find out.

Iím not sure how we would make them any more aware of it than we already have done.

I will say this Pepipoo must have helped scores of people in the past.



There are links in other Forums (Money Saving Expert etc)to Pepipoo and it has a huge reputation Southpaw.


Its a shame to see it go....if thats what happens.


It looks like you have done well to keep it going as long as you have !!

According to correspondence I've had with a ong-term ppp regular, she has been in touch with the ppp owners and they were unaware the site was down. It is a server error which they are now trying to fix.
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.

I'm really not trying to rub it in but I did warn that this is exactly the scenario that might play out if people were given ongoing advice on the old site rather than advised to come to the new one. Of course pepipoo might come back in a few days, but if any deadlines have been missed on live cases it'll be a bit late for those OPs.

The fact that the site owners are unaware of their site being down for days at a time speaks for itself, it suggests that even if it is fixed, should there be another problem it could take days or maybe even weeks to resolve the problem. Of course no site has 100% uptime, ftla experienced a DNS outage last year. The difference is that I was able to get in touch with the platform provider and all was solved within 30 minutes or so.

I am not on the "motorists's side", nor am I on the "police/CPS/council's" side, I am simply in favour of the rule of law. Section 6 of the Interpretation Act 1978 applies to everything I post as it would apply to an Act of Parliament. I am a Conservative councillor, this means some people think I am "scum". I am not a lawyer.

Whilst I don't want to see Ppp go, they've had what, 6 days of downtime now? That's unacceptable, as others suggested in cases where timeframes are strict. Suggestions have been made to MJdev, and offers of help were extended previously and ignored.

If they were indeed working on upgrades on the site, they would have been aware it was down, and if not, surely they would still visit it occasionally? (I visit all of my sites a few times a week, and also have automatic reporting when stuff breaks).

Part of me wishes that the domain had never been renewed, it would have been easy to then provide a link to here and other resources, and also a proxy back to the (still running) ppp server.
