Things started well with the community, but for a number of reasons momentum was lost. I contacted the support team at Discourse and let them know what was happening. It was always possible that momentum might be re-established, but I was insufficiently confident and I eventually had to stop our subscription payments.
In the last couple of days circumstances have changed. It’s not certain that everything will now continue but it was sufficiently likely that I contacted @neil and @codinghorror to ask what might be possible. Was I facing the need to start again from scratch or might it be possible to recover the previous work?
They located their backup and had the site up and running in a little over 24 hours.
I’m hugely impressed. Thanks very much indeed.
