I have been posting on another forum called All Chile (under the name Britkid). That was the most active Chile forum that I found, but recently suddenly shut down. So now I am looking for another one. This was the only one I found so far that had at least some activity. If we can get a few of the other All Chile regulars to join here as well, we can breathe some life into this forum. To be honest it looks a bit slow here and some people´s questions aren´t getting enough answers but if a few people join from the other forum we can build this one up. Unfortunately, I don`t have a way of contacting people from All Chile as it was taken completely offline.

Also poking around. Wondering what happened to the allchile forum, if the shutdown is just temporary which Charles is fixing a server or if it became too much of a liability to their law practice. Usually checked the site a few times a week, so I probably missed any posts that would have indicated something was up. Regardless, would love to not lose touch with the community after 10 years.

I understand that it's gone. It's possible Papageno might come here and explain what happened.

Hi both,

Trying to bring everyone over here - or wherever else - may be a slow burning process - but don´t give up. It could be one of those things where it doesn`t work for months and then takes off. So keep checking back.

At one stage there was just a message saying the forum was offline due to persistent threats of life against the owners. I wrote to the admin and asked him to bring it back briefly so we can all get together and discuss where to go elsewhere. It doesn´t look like he is going to do that, but I did also ask him to consider having an archived version of the forum as a lot of useful information has just been deleted, especially for newbies. He said he would consider that.

The message and my very brief communication with the admin by email strongly implied a permanent shutdown, unless he changes his mind.

If either of you has any contact with others from the forum, perhaps reach out to them. I thought I had emailed quite a few people from the forum over the years, but when I searched my emails I couldn´t find anything.

Hi britkid.
I have been searching for other allchile bloggers as well. Undoubtably I received a great deal of good info from that blog. I guess you dont appreciate it itill ts gone.
I found one message on a google search which stated that after 15 years the allchile blog was permanently discontinued. It then wished good luck.
It disappeared shortly after.

For those looking to connect with other All Chile regulars, try a search for "unseen chile forum". A site was setup there, by Rune, to help those of us that lost contact and need to get in touch....

Not sure what you mean by Px!

They were talking about a special private members area. Maybe they found the ultimate disappearing trick!

But seriously, let's be patient on that for a day or two. It may just be a ?C?I?A? ?h?a?c?k? problem that Rune needs to fix.

We could invite some people to here instead.

I got this message: Due to unforeseen circumstances, we have lost our domain name.

To continue operation, the forum needs a new owner. This person will purchase a domain name and a hosting account (either in their name or protected by private registration and/or other means) and will accept full responsibility as the "owner" of the forum, taking into account and understanding all possible risks related to running a public media.

Until then, there is no way to continue the forum.

A bit strange, and doesn't seem to be telling the whole story to be honest.

Anyway, looks like Unseen is gone.

Do we want to try and build up activity here on expat exchange?

You could invite others here, and ask Rune to push people this way if people inquire?

I could invite the admin from All Chile and ask him to push people this way as well?

Or let us know if you have a better idea.

There are a lot of problems with the unseen chile forum page I am not able to log in. But yes, this forum page is a bit slow like previously stated

Not much action on here, so I hope no one minds if I link to https://discusschile.net/

Some of the previous posters from All Chile and Unseen are now on there, but we could really do with 2-3 more posters to sign up there and if so that forum could really get the momentum going to really take off.

We are currently discussing the 2 year anniversary of 18th October 2019's destruction and vandalism that began a movement for social change, as well as the race for President, the weak peso, and Mapuche claims for land.

See you there?
