Regarding the JREF Forum status PDF Print E-mail
Latest JREF News
Written by Sharon Hill   

 

The time for change has come. The long-running JREF online Forum at forums.randi.org is soon to head off on its own. 

JREF staff is in the midst of arranging a transition to a new owner. Various people are currently working to preserve the integrity of the forum content to the greatest extent possible with the privacy concerns of users in mind.

The JREF still retains ownership of the forum at this point.

This does not affect the randi.org website.

Due to some administrative issues that are causing problems and confusion, JREF board member Rick Adams will be taking administrative control of the Forums. This will result in temporary suspension of other admin activity, including registering new Forum users, while the confusion between administrator roles is sorted out. After the Forum is restarted, hopefully within a few hours, all moderator and posting capabilities should resume as usual and you can continue posting. It is anticipated this admin hold will last a day or two.

Further information will follow as progress occurs. 

The JREF understands that this is not a popular decision for some "Forumites" and hears your complaints loud and clear. This decision was not made lightly, and efforts are continuing to locate the forum safely to a new home. This will take some time to sort out. We ask for your understanding and patience as the problems with the forum are sorted out.

Specific comments can be addressed to sharon@randi.org

You can also follow the Twitter account for immediate updates on the status of the forum at http://twitter.com/jref

UPDATEWe have received productive feedback and suggestions, and a proposal. In five days, the JREF board will close the call for proposals. So, if you have any lingering brainstorm ideas that you wish to propose, please email to sharon@randi.org by Wednesday, August 13, at 12 noon Eastern time U.S.

(Posts on the Forum are not considered proposals.)

Then, we will proceed with the necessary steps. JREF board will make an announcement in conjunction with the party who will take over the Forum.

European Tour
Written by Brandon K. Thorp   

June 08, 2010 — Impromptu vid shot with a camera we're only just learning to use. We are in a lounge at Miami Int'l Airport, waiting on our Swiss Air flight to Helsinki, where Randi will make the first appearance of his Sleep of Reason Tour, 2010. The audio is a little low, but bear with it. Much more on the tour in the days ahead.
