    any update on the situation? I decided to start coming back here again today. I would love to continue posting here because I miss crafting and the community here... :)

    That ^ is a little ironic.

    i joined getcrafty when i was 21 and in a really rough time in my life, i had moved back to my parents house after a bad breakup and life crisis. I moved somewhere where i didn't know anyone and get crafty really helped me connect with other people and feel a bit more sane.

    I admit i am a bad member, i don't think i've posted anything in the past two years, maybe more but i'm willing to start again! i love this site and all the people are so sweet and awesome and super inspiring.

    I hope the technical stuff can get worked out so we can bring this site back!

    I think a lot of people have moved on to the likes of facebook and twitter. Plus, It's really easy to have your own blog now a days. It's kind of sad really but it feels like forums are kind of drying up!

    Cheers

    continual problems with getcrafty since new management take-

    I have had consistent problems with Getcrafty on and off since the site take-over. So much so that I have just stopped coming here. Often when I come to check out the site I have been banned and blocked from the site - it's REALLY annoying - I receive no warnings, no explanation of why access to the site has been denied me and what is the MOST frustrating of all is that there will usually be some kind of message saying "you've been blocked - talk to admin about this" - not word for word but along those lines - well I can't talk to admin cos I can't access the site you NONGS!!

    It's really frustrating and annoying so I just don't bother coming here anymore - I'm sure this has happened to others and driven them away too.

    Occasionally (as in this instance) I swing by getcrafty to see if I'm still blocked on this particular day - just to humour myself - no hope though, not holding my breath. And it keeps happening so why would I?

    I hope the new owners will revamp the site, getting rid of the rubbish & be able to get a handle on a worthwhile and friendly forums site. This looks as if it has been quite good in the past, but something caused it to fall away.

    Wow just checked in after getting the "come back" email from the new GetCrafty Admins. The new site looks fantastic and appears to really be updated and upgraded. Can't wait to poke around and see all the new stuff. I know that I haven't been here in ages as the site just kinda had died and spammers had been a problem last time I was really active here. Great to see the site revived and hope to see it vibrant again.

    Cindy,

    First let me say welcome back. Thanks for all the kind words and yes, I agree, spam was a problem. In fact, even since the site upgrade we've been hit but we do have tools in place to prevent it so it has been much reduced, and cleanup now is a breeze with some of the tools we have in place.

    No one can post links to their homepage or in their signature, or in posts until they've made 10 posts. That makes it easy to identify a spammer quickly because the quality of their posts is pretty low and it presents a barrier that many won't even bother going through in the first place.

    Our main goal is to get some legitimate users back on the site and get this place more lively. Users like you will certainly help us do that! So thanks for coming back!
