My login indicates that I last visited here in February, at which time it was announced this site was shutting down. So I never came back until today, when I was cleaning up my auto-logon program and opened the site by accident as I was trying to delete it from the list.

So what happened? I see that people still seem to be giving weather reports, etc. every day.

From what I gather CM no longer pays for this site, all the moderators have lost their elevated access but the site has not yet been shut down. So kinda like they stopped paying the rent but their is Noel renter.

A bunch of us keep popping in until there is nothing to pop I need to.

Yes: We can still do basic moderation. (Delete posts, edit posts, move threads or posts, ban users, etc.) We can no longer add forums, change passwords, remove forums, change usernames or remove a user from the data base.

It's why the "Meet on Board" does not have any new ships in it or when people ask to be removed from the forum all we can do is delete their posts.

The main site hasn't been updated since February and will not be unless someone buys the site and starts it up on another server.

This is all "If we wish to.". I no longer receive Cruisemates emails so do not get any reported posts or requests. I also only check in a couple of times a week to see how people are doing.

The mother ship (Internet Brands) has just let it go and also does nothing on the site. They didn't do much before that.

One of these days they'll need room on the server we are running on and the site will just disappear, as if it was never here. Sad for a once great cruise site. Sort of like The SS Norway going to the Breakers.

Take care,
