How about, while the registration is disabled, why don't you perform cleanup of all the spam, archive the rest of the good stuff into the Museum, put everything in this era of the site into its own sub directory that states that it was a past version of a site's post, then completely clear ALL accounts AND boards, and start over? You could get new staff, get a new head admin (to replace the “founder” title person, unless they are still around and are interested in reviving the site), and advertise online everywhere (e.g. on DeviantArt) to bring Kirby fans to the site? You can also upgrade the site, like adding anti-spam features, a whole new army of moderators, better, upgraded features, etc.
Could a full revival of this website be possible? Or would it be too ambitious? Because I would REALLY like for there to be a site where Kirby fans could discuss Kirby related things and where a community can be a community (well, a website that isn't dead, anyways).
Sorry. I made that signature years ago when I was a bit dumb... I created it when my account was just a few days old (though pretty much all of my account is still as it was when it was created, with PM still disabled, need mod approval for posts, etc.) Anyways, I removed the pic, and will remove this message when you let me know you have read this. This was the only way I could figure out how to “message” you, btw. Happy Easter, Joshi.
