Subject Re: Proposal to close the Vietnamese Language User Forum
Date Thu, 02 Feb 2012 23:24:38 GMT
To follow up on this.

Locked the forum down a few minutes ago.

Failed to get a Vi translation of the shutdown notice so went with both
English and French. 
- included a call for anyone interested in helping revive the site,
along with a link to the forum admin board as a way to start the
process.
