OK, so there's not really a nice way to put this. After excitedly moving everything over to our brand new, fantastic forum, hosts Proboards.com have suddenly decided to delete the forum and all it content with no warning/reason. They've not given me a chance to back up the forum, delete the violation or appeal it some way. As a result, everything has gone with no way of bringing it back.
I don't really know what to do now, as nearly 4 years worth of content has been wiped out. I've got some of the stories saved on my computer but it'll obviously take time to get them all back. The great conversations, messages etc. are all gone now, as well as many of the stories.
I can (if people want) look for another forum with a better host (who won't just delete everything) and of course I'll back everything up from now on(!) but obviously that means starting our whole community again from scratch.If this is an option people want, I can have it sorted by the end of the day near enough. The forum was really buzzing just before it got taken down so I don't want to lose that. I thought the ability for everyone to contribute and get involved was much better on there.
Massive apologies, let me know what you think is best for the future of GMC...
I have now created a new forum elsewhere. The new address is: http://gungemalecelebs.prophpbb.com/. Obviously it's still very much at the work-in-progress stage but by having a new home so quickly, hopefully we can get things back to normal as soon as possible. I'm going to upload as many of the stories as I can over the coming weeks, as well as plenty of new and exclusive material. The same rules as the old forum apply, so please upload an avatar and make a post within a week of registration to keep your account.
I know it's not ideal but I really hope we can make this new place as good as the old one.
A bit of good news! I've managed to find an old version of the blog on Google which has got pretty much all the blog stories so am transferring those stories over to the forum now. It'll take time but it looks like the majority of the stories will be saved and still available to read!

In order to make it easier for people to interact with each other, post suggestions and submit stories, Gunge Male Celebs blog has closed and all content has been moved to our expanded forum at www.gungemalecelebs.proboards.com. All future content will now be posted on the forum. Once you become a member on the forum, you can access 100+ stories, discussions, interactive stories and more. We're hoping the forum will grow and grow over the coming months. Once you become a member of the forum, make sure you upload an avatar and make a post in order to prevent your account from being deleted.
But THIS BLOG site and page will Continue. All upcoming News, Announcements, Votes and Polls will be posted on here. So please check here frequently for updates too.
We look forward to you joining us at this exciting new time for Gunge Male Celebs!
