Hi, 

I*ve been contacted by a gentleman who has tried for a while to create a user on the forum, but hasn't received any emails.

 

Does anyone know if the user registration is broken? 

 

Who is the admin for the site after Chris went AWOL?

All new users have to be authorised by one of the site admins/moderators team before they can post.  The full list of moderators can be found at the bottom of the Forums home page.

 

As you will note, none of the regular forum members are in that group.

 

Effectively - there is no administrator at the moment.

Sadly yes.

 

I've often wondered what the real reason is behind why Chris did go AWOL......

I imagine he went AWOL because of all the hate he got from the kickstarter Agent Watch project.  I understand their frustration, but the worst of them clearly don't understand kickstarter.  You are not buying, you are investing.  Nobody "scammed" them, the money seems to have been spent honestly, but ran out before completion... as I understand.

The hate comments seemed to be confined to the Kickstarter campaign (in the most).

 

To be honest, I'd have thought (hope) that Chris would be concentrating on the Agent project to deliver on it's promises.  He's always come across as honest and straight up.

 

My thoughts on Kickstarter match yours, it's a risk.  I've never backed a project with money I was not prepared to lose.

I'm guessing the hate has fully penetrated his email, social media, and any other form of communication he had listed anywhere online.  I bet he can't go near a computer or answer the phone without massive depression and anxiety.  It would make sense he wouldn't want any new users getting on this forum- I have seen posts where hateful people were promoting the use of netduino.com to harass him.
