I asked John about this and he actually responded. He was pretty vague and said he was working on some plans. I have no clue what is going on over there. As soon as I get some time, I'm going to be backing up the files from his GDrive and work on an independent solution for the forum in case those files become unavailable. I'm also thinking of some ways to make the forum more of a long term source for Folgertech info in case the website does in fact remain down.
2020 was the death of a ton of businesses. I hope this does not include Folgertech. If I get some concrete information from Folgertech, I'll be sure to post it in the news section. I do not spread rumors or stuff I read on Facebook unless direct from the source. I have pretty much washed my hands of the entire situation at this point though and preparing for the worst. 100% of my Folgertech related focus is now to support the community and not the company. I still have direct communication with the mod team of the unofficial FB group so if anything concrete happens, I'll hear about it.
