I have been the benefactor of participation in the Interspire forums for about a decade. Last week I visited the site and was unable to access or find the forums. After some digging and conversations via Skype with other heavy Interspire users, we all concluded that the forums have been removed.
Interspire has updated their site in a very significant way and the forums are gone. The forums were only ever supposed to be available to licensed users to Interspire but now nobody has access for new conversations or as a resource to look for information previously posted.
A few years ago we created an open forum on our site for Interspire users. Our hope is that moving forward IEM users everywhere will find value in using our forums for ongoing conversation and community.
