Fortunately I found a ne web adress that works properly.

Would it be possible the reply links to be updated to the new website?

Thanks

I have sent a PM to Carl, as it looks like the domain registration for cgtrains.com has expired

Sorry chaps but it looks like we may have lost www.cgtrains.com at least for the time being.

The forum still works but has reverted back to its original url.

http://continental-garden-t.motionforum.net/

The hosting company want me to pay (a lot of money) for renewal of domaine name 'cgtrains' something which I object to seeing as it was 'given' free to me about 5 years ago........

As soon as I have time next week I will deal with it but in the meantime use the original URL/domain name.

With admin hat on...... Surprised 

To clarify the situation about the domain name issue.
The forum has two domain names:
www.cgtrains.com
and the origainal:
continental-garden-t.motionforum.net
Both can be used to access the forum. www.cgtrains.com is a custom domain name that was bestowed on us for free some years ago and we have had free yearly renewals ever since until this year when they asked me to pay for the renewal.
'They' are 'Forumotion' the hosting company who actually provide a pretty good service considering.

The annual renewal cost around 20 euros. I'm not asking for money by the way.

What annoyed me a little was there was no explanation as to why the free service stopped.

(Note that you can't actually 'own' a domain name outright. It's a real marketing racket! you only lease or rent it.)

So I managed to find out some (guarded) information on the host help site that the free domain renewal service is a gift. There is a points system that fluctuates depending on factors such as forum activity, presentation etc.,etc.. Apparently this year the 'forum points' have have dropped. 

I'm not really bothered with that as the forum is as active as people make it. We all have other things going on apart from garden trains from time to time, me included! Embarassed 
I made the forum as simple as possible and easy to use and administer.

However the forum has existed amazingly for an incredible 6 years and perhaps it's time for a bit of a revamp....

Ideas and suggestions please.
