phpBB3now staff have removed the Springfield Gamers Forum and Springfield Anime Enthusiasts forums without notice or explanation. For the time being, the freeforums.org forums for both groups have been re-opened until new forums without advertisements can be established:
Those looking for free forum hosting without advertising should not create a forum through phpBB3now. Your may be removed without warning and without reason.
Stay tuned to this site for further news.
UPDATE: It looks like there’s no such thing as free hosting without advertisements. Both forums are staying put for the time being.
UPDATE #2: It turns out that only forums using non-standard domain names disappeared. The Springfield Gamers Forum is still available at spfd.phpbb3now.com. Unfortunately, the new Springfield Anime & Manga Enthusiasts Forum was lost.
