I was using the thread as a means to communicate with fellow members and ask for and give advice on images etc for entries (I assume this is legal since we don't actually edit each others work just give advice) Is that why the team thread is now gone?

Yeah, ours was still pretty active as well. Very sad to see it go!

Are thread wasn't very active except for the occasional check-in, but it was nice to have it while it lasted.

I asked the SC, and was told you could still access it via a bookmark. And that's true, although a note to that effect would've been nice.

What if we don't know the URL?

Agreed!

A bookmark or check your history I was told, hope you managed to find it again :o)

Dunno. I got lucky - had it bookmarked. I'm not especially happy with how they're handling this. Hello? SC? Anyone care to comment on why they disappeared without warning?

Looks like the DPL will be put on the shelf and all evidence destroyed.

We found it gone at the same time you did.

I do seem to recall Langdon saying that there were only four of threads that had been used in the previous week, or so. Most of them had little, if any activity for months and he may have felt it was cluttering stuff up?

All team communication Destroyed.
Mission accomplished.

Communication and making some friends was nice while it lasted.

Ours wasn't terribly active but 3 of us did still communicate when we felt we really needed a hand. But I didn't bookmark it because it was always right there at the top of the list anyway. Ah well... sigh... but it would have been polite to tell us, at least :(

It's not gone, it's just not linked anymore.

And if only a handful of people were using the link, then it probably makes sense to remove clutter from the homepage, though it may have been nice to have a link elsewhere. Maybe on the Season 1 Team Listing page...

Finding it in your history isn't too hard, if your thread was active, like my team's was. In case they read this, you can find Team Imagenation's thread here. (Access is restricted by login, of course)

The only problem with a page that isn't linked anywhere is that it will probably stop being supported at some point. I hope the threads themselves don't go away.

Cheers,
