    What happened to the VPI forum?

    I've been trying to locate the VPI Forum and cannot find it. I know the original one was down earlier this year. Then a revised forum came back online but without all the previous postings. Now this one is down as well. Anyone know? There's also no mention of it on the VPI home page.

    The last I heard, was the website got corrupted and they lost everything. "" Mat says the forum somehow got corrupted by Go Daddy and VPI's plans now are to work to rebuild it entirely, including the old, archived posts. But it looks like that may take a while."

    Just guessing, but it sounds like Mat threw in the towel trying to deal with IT problems to focus on selling Turntables. I was hoping to see him tonight, he will be at Audio Video Therapy in Nashua NH but unfortunately, I can't make it.

    I also had the idea that the backup data from the old site was incompatible with their new platform.

    Thanks Myles and everyone else who responded. I was on the new forum as recently as May 2022 and it seemed to be working well and building a group of followers. Then it was just gone. Would hate to lose the fountain of knowledge and exchanges on their old forum.
