Getting Started!

I recently created a site for my Lotro kinship. Guild Portal seemed to be a perfect answer. While I'm perfectly capable of creating a web site, GP seemed to have covered the bases and allo me to develop a web site with a minimum of effort. 

Now I'm starting to have the feeling, "If something looks too good to be true, it usually is." I had a a few questions regarding the Lotro SDK in light of some major changes going on at Turbine. I submitted a support ticket (which seems to be the only means of communicating with Aaron and Sandy). The only response I have received so far to the questions and a follow up is from the auto-responder.

I stated in the ticket that I was enthusiastic about this hosting service and prepared to subscribe and in all likelihood sign up for a Vent server. Nothing! It's been almost a month with no response. This is Marketing 101. 

I also checked the Facebook site and there have been no posts since May.

i would appreciate any advice on how to proceed. I am reluctant to invest time or money here if there are major problems.

Guild Portal used to be a ***FANTASTIC*** web host.  I have been with them since . . . I dunno, 2004?

Their service has recently become a burden.  I am still searching for a solution that has a forums module that is equivalent to what GP has, because I'll tell you flat out, GP's forums are visually the best you'll find.  The backend of those forums?  Terrible, but forums are all about visual presentation, and GP's have that in spades.

If there were any other host that had an equivalent, I would be long gone from GP by now because frankly their service is terrible, and support has constantly declined over the years.

Becoming Adept!

Someone needs to find the site owner and contact them to ask then to come back. What if something terrible has happened? They could have died or something...

He hasn't died.

Here's his LinkedIn account: http://www.linkedin.com/in/aarongp

There's also been complaints about his unscrupulous business practices, e.g. listing GuildPortal as part of the Better Business Bureau when it isn't. Maybe someone should alert his current employer?
