Why hasn't this forum been deleted?
I don't think it should be now,since Luigi is gone.Maybe we could just use the new ECC as a backup site?

We could, but keep in mind this site is still unstaffed. It will only be a matter of time before some other troll comes in. Then we will be right back where we started.

If Hubert doesn't want to come back full-time, or even part-time, then he should at least appoint a moderating staff, then that way, nobody will have to worry ever again.

When was the last time he was here? We haven't heard from him in over a year and a half now.

I'll stick around as usual until something more disastrous shows up.  Then when it does, I'll have fun playing with it like a dead raccoon.  I tend to prefer lightly moderated or completely un-moderated communities anyway, even when trolls do happen.  It makes things more colorful, vibrant and unpredictable.  Sort of like playing hot potato with a live hand grenade.

I've known a few people who've tried getting old abandoned forums deleted, and apart from a very grave TOS violation such as child p0rnography or a major piracy trade, it generally doesn't happen due to respect for the original Administrator's account.  Otherwise, much of the time it takes nothing too short of a valid legal threat/order from a court, law enforcement agency or attorney. 

Create-a-Forum, ForuMotion, ProBoards, etc. could technically shut down a forum for even very minor TOS violations like silly spam or even minor swearing, but doing so would cause bad publicity, cost them traffic and advertising, and pose a risk of gaining a reputation as an unstable forum provider.

Looks like this place ain't going anywhere anytime soon.
How unfortunate for those who wish for it to vanish. But fortunate for those who value fond memories of this place.
I'm a man of a few words, that is all.

OK, wow. Where do I start? I had to take a break from this forum for a while to do some work, and when I come back, I have a notice that it's getting deleted. First of all, I was shocked that the createaforum administrator would schedule a shutdown of a forum without some sort of voting among the members. I read the message about the shutdown on the 12th, and I was kicking myself for not coming back sooner. I wonder why it didn't get shut down, did the administrator change their mind as they visited the forum, seeing the negative reaction?

Ok, I've been corrected countless times, so I think I have most of the details right this time.

1. Someone requested for adminship from the create-a-forum staff, but they said only the admins on the forum can create new admins.
2. The create-a-forum staff offered to delete this forum as a last resort against being overrun with spam.
3. The person requested the deletion date of February 12, but the create-a-forum staff never replied to confirm the date.

It could still possibly be deleted at random when we least expect it. I tried my hand at a Create-a-forum forum back in the summer (I've maintained forums before, but this was the first time I worked with Create-a-forum), but it got deleted for really no reason very recently, though I think a lot of it had to do with lack of traffic.

Since it's been brought to their attention, I think there's still a possibility CAF may carry out with shutting down ECC, but only when they actually get around to it... for now, I'm hoping it'll still remain open for a while longer.

Well, I see now that Luigi is back, MC CJ has now officially left us.

*Sigh* Another casualty of war.

Man, now that Luigi (or an unreasonable facsimile thereof) is back, ECC has turned into a baron wasteland of a ghost town.  :(
