    I actually had a dream about TOS being down last night.

    It must have been an unconscious Easter thing, because it came back online… but was utter shite. Really poorly presented and just generally awful. 

    This isn’t funny, but it is true. This is how G&T threads burrow into my mind.

    “He hath risen! … oh Jesus, you look terrible now. What happened to you?”

    “Oh right. That.”

    OK, I know it’s fun and easy to blame Rob Grant for this situation, but I think it would be more reasonable to blame whomever it was who decided Rob Grant should be in charge of a website migration. It’s like getting Rimmer to repair the drive plate.

    For the record I myself am not blaming him.

    Fair. I didn’t really think the memes were a serious accusation, but good to be clear.

    Besides, we all know that Doug’s always the one to blame for any GNP issues that might be Doug v. Rob. Because Last Human was worse than Backwards.

    INTO THE DIAL-UP

    Rob Grant writes an alternative official website for Red Dwarf, picking up exactly where he left off in the mid-nineties.

    Well shit, looks like the people who suspected there was some serious behind the scenes shenanigans going on were right…

    £44!? Do me a lemon. That’s a poor price for a bottle of Perrier water.

    I almost don’t want them to finish the site migration now, because of the camaraderie forged by our shared downtime experiences as discussed in this thread. Such great memories of a time I’d be sad to see end.

    GNP if you’re reading this I’m kidding please put the site back up

    #273220

    Oh the fucking irony.

    I thought occurred, I wonder how the ‘Unofficial Red Dwarf Forum’ is taking the news that TOS is down.  I went to have a look and the most recent post is everyone being directed to a new permanent forum, as the one set up was only meant to be temporary.

    Even the cesspit offshoot of the TOS forum is capable of setting up and moving everyone over to a new forum!

    Fair warning, enter at your own risk, it’s less a fan forum and more a “trawl the internet for things to get pissy about the nice normal fans of Red Dwarf”

    And Moonlight. The Smega-Drive era has made many careers.

    Holy shit, the most recent thread under ‘Red Dwarf Fan Community’ is someone libelling Cappsy. What the fuck.

    Oh my god, they… they genuinely made a whole section of their forum just to shit on G&T and TORDFC? They described the ‘Escape Pod’ Facebook group as an “enemy lair” and boasted about linkspamming there? They don’t know how to format their posts so the text isn’t massive?

    I’ve seen too much. I should have heeded your warning, Quinn.

    I did find a thread about TOS being down though. The OP concludes that
    this is just further proof that TOS is bad now, as first proven by them
    closing the official forum of course, and the first reply is “Well I
    like this one more anyway”. Probably the funniest thing said on there.

    #273223

    I’m not even going to entertain giving them the time of day by discussing any of theirs posts.

    Reasonable. I feel queasy just from posting about them once. I guess this was a harsh lesson against idly wondering what they think about any particular piece of Red Dwarf news.

    You know, early on, if I had an idea for a TOS downtime related meme, I would be thinking “better post this quick, if the site comes back tomorrow it’ll no longer be relevant”. Nowadays I’m not as hurried.

    I think we should open a book on when we think TOS is actually going to come back.
