It's very odd though. For the owner of a massive forum to not answer any emails or messages, to disappear from ciberspace. Most of us log on to the net daily, even hourly. Some of us have smartphones and can check email anytime, anywhere. My phone pings when anything happens on my facebook. This is the age of communication. Wouldn't you think Zarion would have all this at his fingertips. Very odd.

don't see why someone cant go knocking on Zarions door - if he lived in Headington, Oxford

as can be seen here (http://whois.domaintools.com/tenerifeforum.com)Because that address has not been current for a long time. I'm sure everyone thinks I'm stupid. Have you any idea how many who is records and company searches I've done over the years to get in touch with zarion when the forum has gone down in the past?... Well, no. I would not expect you to. :)

Now... if you can tell me who the forum host is these days, that would be good, as I have no idea.

Probably, but why would they tell a stranger?

Without permissions we cannot do anything.

As far as VF is concerned Kirsty could be a hacker, which is why she ultimately resigned.

Without permissions her job was untenable.

Tenerifeforum has it's OWN nameservers, hence why it's hard to trace. It's a dedicated server - ns1.tenerifeforum.com & ns2.tenerifeforum.com. Webfusion is for 123-reg.co.uk, which is the domain registrar. You can redirect domain via their control panel, as that one is. Good try though. I like your thinking. :)

Just fired off the following email to Doreen's lead. Let's see if I get a reply, as I've given specific info to them that no one else would know.

Personal info is starred out :)


Hi there,

After doing some searching on the net, I have reason to believe that your datacenter is hosting the account for Tenerife Forum (tenerifeforum.com).

I am the co-administrator of this forum, and it is very big with lots of members, so it is important that we keep it online. It has recently gone offline and is not even resolving anymore, so I am contacting you to try and find out what's going on, as the administrator is uncontactable.

We have set up a fresh install of our forum software on a new domain in the interim, however we are desperately trying to find out if the forum is just broke, or whether the hosting is due, or any other reason why it has gone down.

I obviously do not expect you to give me access to the server without knowing my identity, however I would appreciate an update on the status of the server, whether or not it's a temporary issue and if there is anything that we can do to get it back up and running in the absence of the Admin.

Also, if you have any other information regarding contact details for the site admin other than the tenerifeforum*********** address that I have, I would be grateful, as it may help tracking him down.

His name is ****************, and the last known address I have is ***************

Thanks in advance for any help if you can indeed assist!

Kirsty. (username kirstyjay if you want to verify my co-admin status within the forum database.)

If they have access to the forum files and databse, they could easily verify my status on the forum.

I, for one, totally agree. I have had nothing to do with the recent work (Too Thick) but have pulled my weight in the work I can do after we were back on line.

I am proud, once again, to be associated with a site that is more interested in help and information than making money..

Just an udate, but I have had a reply from the hosting company. Doreen's research was not correct, but it was close, and my mail was forwarded so I am now in contact with the account holders.

It's not looking good... talk of 'urgent contact' and referring to the forum in the past tense are not giving me a good feeling.

With the last hosting company my details were also on the register, as I paid the hosting directly from the advertising cash, so it was a lot simpler to get access, or get information if zarion disappeared... this time it's not so simple, as this is the first time I've had any contact with them, which can be a little dubious to say the least!

why not post Zarions personal details, like his real name, someone on the forum may know him and his whereabouts. I know its personal BUT what if he was very ill etc, he may appreciate it. Could delete his details afterwards.

Yeah, I can't see the point in them being anonymous anymore. In this day and age no-one can really disappear, someone must know his/her whereabouts.

Why does he/she have to be a secret? It's just an owner of a .com address not anyone special!

I hope life is always as simple as that for you, but I've been doing this for 3 years. every time the forum goes off. Give me some credit. ;)

We have a current lead we are following up. All info that members have found and posted is INCORRECT and has been for over a year. I feel sorry for the poor people a banbury house whose address had now been plastered on a busy Internet forum without their consent. If you wanted to send me a number, you could have done it via PM too. Why don't you try the number...? See if you get an answer. :)

A big secret because Zarion chose to operate in that fashion - not our choice!

The forum ceased to operate because bills to the hosting servers stopped being paid.

He wanted to stop people being able to interfere with his private life or persecute him for decisions they didn't like as the last port of call.

Simple and understandable, especially if you've ever been a mod and realise how vindictive trolls can be.

has this 2 forum situation become a living soap?
i seem to remember not so long ago a similar situation when the original forum caused a spin off/splinter group to form their own forum, there was blood and snot everywhere, all the drama, it was excellent, in fact i havnt laughed so much since, the only exception being when i seen slur alex ferguscum trembling and clenching his fists during his euro cup final humiliation.
i think this 2 forum saga has a good few miles to go yet and i personally am looking very forward to it.
i think there is every possibility of legal action being involved, not that i am an expert of course, i am the victim of a gagging order and cant say much more, OH will make my life a misery.
its a bit like dallas but barnsley style.
itll be fun to watch the plot unfold.
eyyy upp.

I'm sure I read somewhere that the server host of the old forum is in Texas. I used to work for a firm based in Texas and our website was always crashing and used to crash for days on end. Everyone there agreed it was frustrating but seemed to think it was a fairly normal occurance. Bit like moving here and discovering power cuts are just shrugged off as a fact of life. No idea if this is any use.
