The owner of the forum called Cablehell approached the Cableforum team and offered to transfer control of the Cablehell.co.uk domain to us.
The offer included a copy of the Cablehell database but not the licence to continue to operate Cablehell on its Invision Powerboard forum software.
After some discussion this evening, the Cable Forum team has decided that the best way to pursue our aim of supporting both the customers and the development of cable services in the UK is to merge Cablehell into Cable Forum, creating one powerful, independent voice which we feel can only be of benefit to the customers of Virgin Media. We are now encouraging all Cablehell forum members to sign up for membership here if they have not already done so.
Steps have already been taken to re-direct cablehell.co.uk to this forum, although this may take several days to cascade across the whole internet domain name system.
No decision has been taken as yet regarding the Cablehell database and whether we may be able to make an archive available for reference.
