The MOLF is down!!!!!



My most frequently visited forum is the Marillion OnLine Forum (MOLF for short). I don't spend much time on any other forum. I've made a good many friends in the real world from using it and it works as a one stop shop. It's largely populated by intelligent people so a great many views are posted on a multitude of subjects. There's the usual downsides; people who can't take a joke, Mods that sometimes make questionable decisions hidden behind anonymity, fans that take their fandom far too seriously, people hiding behind a double-login, and the usual WUMs (Wind Up Merchants). But overall, the experience of using the forum is a good one.

I tend to use it everyday, so shock of all horrors, since yesterday it's been out of commission. I feel slightly lost without it, sad to say. I want to see what my friends think of the Stephen Moffat penned episode of Doctor Who; see if anyone has received their tickets for the Foo Fighters this coming Saturday.

Cynically, I'll be interested to see how much is "lost" when it gets up and running. The Tangerine Dream forum has suffered from being rebooted in the past.

I know, it's like waking up to find someone's shaved off your eyebrows isn't it? Tell you what, if it's still down tomorrow, and you have some time to waste, will you do me a favour and vote on my list of best Marillion albums at ditto.net 'cos no one else has which is a bit embarrassing...

wayfarer said...

Well Phillip, I've contributed. Not sure I've done what you asked ;o)

Thanks Richard, I started the list before I realised the site was co-sponsored by Q magazine, so I'm not sure how welcome it is! But if Clutching At Straws is your numero uno how come you didn't vote for it?

btw did you see the lists of best progressive rock and best concept albums? Oh, never mind, it looks like the MOLF is back...
