Is the Haynes forum gone? - or just down?

For the last few days I have been unable to access the Haynes Forum. Is it finally gone? - or is it just down?

Just noticed this myself!

Wouldn't be surprised if it did just get pulled, didn't Haynes threaten to do so recently?

Would be a pity, still lots of good info on there.

There's a thread on the Haynes FB group about it - someone on there said they know the person who admins it, hopefully it's just something that has dropped temporarily as there were some excellent build threads on there which it would be a shame to loose permanently...

Well I don't know, I have been the main "Moderator" for possibly 6 years but never had contact with "ADMIN"...

I have sent an e-mail to their customer service e-mail, don't hold much hope

Seemed to coincide with John Haynes Passing away!

admin attention of locostbuilders, (as a courtesy to Chris) that I have asked British Library to try and include locostbuilders in its archive
but yes
RIP John Haynes ;-(

I hope Haynes forum does survive

Doesn't look like they did - only thing coming up in their catalogue with the words 'haynes' and 'roadster in it is the Super 7th Heaven website (which is also a good resource!)

I checked last night and it was working and Haynes have just mailed me to confirm it is fixed and working. Really glad it is, so many questions are answered if you do a search on that forum it would be a real pity to lose it as a resource.
