What happened there? I read something, but thought Keiko bought the site, and now nothing. Until it went into Facebook mode, and invite friends only, I learned a lot from posters.

It would appear that FlaglerPost is "off the air." Is CC the longest surviving forum in the area?

I've been trying for several days to get on Flagler Chat and it isn't working right now. I check it just as often as I do CC. Hope Keico can work things out.

It is back but if your are having display issues try clearing your browser's caches (history, etc.) My Chrome browser was suffering on the updated site even though IE & Edge browsers seemed fine. I cleared the caches and all was well again. :noisemaker-1:

Thanx R2D2! Can you in just a very few steps explain how to do this...I've had to reboot several times in the past couple of weeks because I get the "GOOGLE Chrome is not Responding." I am wondering if GOOGLE is having a problem? I am using Windows 10 if that helps ...

With Chrome open perform a Ctrl-H to bring up the history
Scroll down to history and then left to History (Ctrl-H)
On the left side there is an item 'Clear browsing data", click on it
An option window will open with suggested defaults. I left it at the defaults and clicked on the button "Clear browsing data"

All fixed

:mistaken:Sorry, here is the correction, by the time I noticed the error, the 15 minute edit window was closed, makes better sense now:super:

Wat happened to Flagler Chat? I've been checking it every day even tho there's never much posted. Today, I just get something about GoDaddy. I guess it's finally gone? Rest In Peace, Flagler Chat.

I was just able to open it and read it. Maybe check again. I believe it was R2D2 who checked and was able to determine that it was "paid up" until I believe a date sometime in mid-late 2019. Of course if there is a problem with the site, no one can access it to "fix" it unless they could notify phpBB and explain that the owner of the site has died and request assistance in either turning it over to someone else or fix the problem or whatever it would take to get it working. Anyway, as I said, I just accessed it and was able to read and post in the Caturday thread.

I just tried again to go into Keico's site a little over a hour after I posted the above and now I am getting a blank screen and it isn't even trying to load. Some with way more knowledge than I is going to have to figure this one out...(BTW, that would be just about anybody.):danc1:

Like you Kathy, and even more so - I am very challenged when it comes to fixing anything on the internet or understanding what has happened. Chat has been struggling lately.

I think Flagler Chat is done, someone checked said account was paid up till next October but last time I was able to access it there was a message about it being done on 9-18-2018 unless something or other and otherwise the site was available for purchase or would be removed, can't remember it all, yesterday and today all I got was a "Big Daddy" message or a blank screen. Will miss doing Caturday though.

Yes, I saw that the domaine had expired and was up for renewal or sale through Go Daddy.

Yes I can certainly tell you with 100% confidence that last year it was opted for a two year renewal of server services that would have extended the server contract to October 2019. Unfortunately the paying of the "domain name", which is separate billing, was overlooked as expiring this year.

Attempts to be able to pass the admin rights for the site were attempted by a few of the users but these attempts failed at gaining access.

Keico last year several months before he passed, did ask me if I would be a co-admin. I did turn that offer down as it was "his" site. Looking back, I regret that decision.:y_hmmmm2:

You did what you had to do at the time. Don't beat yourself up.
