What did happen? Is there a story? Or did the forum just disappear up its own fundament?
Oh dear. You asked. We can tell you, but we have to kill you afterwards. Or to be really secure, before...
I notice there's still a 'from the forum' column in the mag, my old link just takes me through to a bike shop's site though.
...and it came to pass that in those days a decree went out from Future Augustus that each should go from the place of their forumming, each to be registered on a new forum and that it would be great.
And they did go, willing and unwilling, and some of them did see that it was not great, because they did have their names messed about with, and there was great whiteness and a plague of yoofs. And yea, led by Krypton and a few bold prophets, including the Mister that is named Paul and she who is called Arch, they did set out in search of a new forum and Krypton did say unto them "Come and start a new promised land in the forum that is called Cyclechat". So they did look, and it was good, and there was no great whiteness and it was all cosy and homely. So the prophets did email all their friends and they did come as well and it did grow and grow, like Topsy. And despite this Krypton, who is also called Admin, did manage the influx very well, and they were all grateful.
From this day forward, let all tell of the great forum migration, and let there be celebration of our deliverance, and cake and tea and all manner of beverages.
Something's happened to the C+ site!? Nobody told me
All the forums associated with Future Publishing's bicycle titles were combined into one mega forum.
However, unlike in the 1960s, when communities in our city centres were 'developed' and 'improved' by herding people into monstrous tower blocks, many people this time around, found they had the option of moving out to a new town in the garden suburbs.
Of course, other communities are available, some (one) of which does a far more proactive job in keeping their streets free of 'deviants'. Here a more liberal approach to caring for these elements within the community is favoured, although at the moment this policy is placing an undue strain on Psychiatric Nurses Arch, User, et al.
it just went off the radar
Where you been hiding eh??
Following a banishment from C+, we were herded into Bikeradar, until an Exodus led by Paul and Arch (mainly) brought everyone to this new, promised land.
Imagine you favourite, local café, being taken over by McDonalds.
And another one opening up, just around the corner....
What do I do to get rid of the vision I have now of me and Mr Paul standing atop an arid mountain in long beards, waving tablets of stone at the sky?
could be worse, i'm stuck with a vision of being a sheep
if you call basket weaving work that is

And when you went to try it you just found all the wrinklies that you had been trying to escape from for months.
And then you found that it really was mainly the cafe people who had moved and the cyclists had stayed.
And then you found that you really could split your life between chatting to friends over a coffee in one place and seeking info and advice in another place.
Dream catchers, I'll have you know.[/QUOTE]
Did all the inmates have to make dream catchers then?
