At first I thought the forum had been disabled by the ring manager. But after looking again, I noticed there is no longer a ring manager associated with the managers' ring. Strange.
It's either a system glitch or the ring manager opted for the free level. :-)
Has it been removed? The link to it doesn't work right anymore.
It would definitely seem that the forum is gone, guess too many managers objected to what's happening or something. You might notice that there's also no title to the ring's hub page when you call it up, not just a lack of "manager" notation. I even tried going through the "forums" link and getting to it from there - just came up with the ring again, listing 216 active sites and 255 total visits - doesn't even carry the "date established" anymore.
If you look at the chart of visits on that page and expand it, say to July 1st 2006, you'll see that there are MANY MORE than 255 total visits ... many more.
My "layman's" guess is that, with a uniqueness rating of just 52, it's on its way out, like so many others.
