Hello fellow passenger if any are left..
Some info regarding why NO ONE could get into the Bus..that included me to, Well It was all down to the new owners of the hosting company we rent server space from, from what I can make out from trolling round the web.. We were not the only ones that have been having problems from this host since the takeover.. other site owner are getting locked out etc just like us.. This is also reason (although didn't know at the time) is why no one seems to have been getting any emails sent from the Bus. It seems these people(the host) has slowly been strangling many service across there whole set up, dropping server and adding to many site to servers that are left, site owners that are sending in support tickets to find out why their services aren't working properly are getting the cold shoulder with no replies so of cause no answer to give any members.

So I have now got Bus up and running on another server host, who have been very very helpful as we couldn't move the Bus in the usual manner from one host to another.. I have had to do it all from here at desktop through FTP download everything to my comps and then back up to the new host who then literally put us back together piece by piece.. So site is here again but not sure if I'm just talking to myself as don't know if any of you are still trying to get on board. But if you are then a big thanks for hanging on in there... I will send out some emails shortly with this text here and some more then we need to get Bus running again or if no interest.. I will dump it. well sort of, it is still here as I also use and run other stuff on servers testing websites I make and stuff.

So not fully sure where we go from here.
As only few of you coming and just doing competitions now,
As no one posting any work for people to see..

Well coming just for competitions isn't enough!!

People that come to visit to see if worth joining won't join if no activity within the forum in general, they come because it says Photoshop.. not competition shop.
And I don't apologise for being blunt about it..

I've worked hard along with these new host to put Bus all back together..and scorp has worked hard keeping a presence here along with a small few (who I thank for sticking around)
We need to post and post and post. In the forum as a whole. if Bus is to live!!
Show your work, post some photo's, Those that hand draw stuff on paper scan them in post your pictures it doesn't matter how small, you get the point just get something NEW!! for visitors to see..
Just because it says Photoshop in title doesn't mean post just Photoshop works.
I don't care which editing program you use to do your art just post stuff show your work.. I say this part because Photoshop as in Main PS is beyond most people now.. so use others that are affordable even free , A good paid one now which was only for Mac, is now available for Windows.. That's Affinity it is a cross between PS and GIMP I have it and it works quite well Not quite as rich a program as PS But easier to work with than GIMP.. (This is My own opinion having used both)

As we know scorp no longer to do comps as time is needed by family at present.. So if you want Bus to continue then take note of above,

Give some posts on suggestions for a way to go..

We need get bums in seats.. Or alternative is I shut up shop..

And One last thing.. UJ!!

We as in scorp and myself were asked by Jo to keep Bus going till UJ got out of The holiday camp with iron bars!!! haha! so we have done this for a lot longer than anticipated.. Yes UJ has always been the front man for the Bus. Yes my name is at the bottom of site I run back end, pay etc.. well as far as myself and scorp know.. and I will be blunt.. for all we know UJ could be dead!! We know of Jo's problems and the not good outlook for her health and those of us that do KNOW!! UJ know how this would affect him, myself and Scorp know him well enough to know of his past, So as to what is happened to him we can only surmise.. So we need to either do this without him or we shut up shop, I would like to see the Bus continue.. I might well have to prune what we have here a bit like get shot of Arcade, may even have to do same with Gallery.. This forum software we use now has been superseded and is no longer supplied with security and program updates and a lot of our add-ons ie: for one the Gallery will not work with the new version..

I am looking into modifying stuff and testing other type forum software but unless more passengers and a reasonable response here I might just have to forget it!

So there you have it that's roughly where it all stands, Yes I'm a bit blunt with it all but that is my way but need to be upfront so you all know what goes on.. Especially those that have stayed and kept coming who I thank..

sorry if this seems a bit mixed here way it's written. But I wasn't going write all this here originally so most is bit I wrote for posting and for sending in pm's and emails but email still not working correct at this time so afraid I stuck it all here..

Yes I know It all a bit long BUT! I do hope you do give it a bash and read all..
Well Me now is diving under the Bus to proceed with the repairs.

Later peeps....
Thanks, cojogo
