Just keeping some record here in this thread of the little over a month with forums. Comments, discussions and so forth from that time.

Someone feel free to write out a rough timeline of what happened and when.

Where were you when the forums went down? Where and when did you find about the forums returning?

What is interesting is that there will be no record of any posts in this forum for July 2013 :geek:

Website chatbox log as far is goes back right now.
Spoiler: show
mimi: yeah, sorry for the long wait y'all. pls pm me if you find some bugs; hopefully everything worked!

james: yay forum's back
5 Aug 13, 05:28 AM
Erinyes: Sneak onto the westeros forums and hope we don't get found out?
5 Aug 13, 05:28 AM
Mordion: I've been thinking we could use the ever-expanding VoK email list as a forum substitute.
5 Aug 13, 05:20 AM
jesicka309: really is sad....we should hijack some other forum and gather there until these boards are back!
5 Aug 13, 05:18 AM
Erinyes: I find it both reassuring, and a little sad that we have latched on to the shoutbox in leu of the forums #manwoodymethadone
5 Aug 13, 05:17 AM
jesicka309: I literally run out of the internet to read...I sit at work, and all I have to do is WORK. Ugh. Please save me! Forums!!
5 Aug 13, 05:00 AM
Vaarsuvius: you guys are my only true friends. Nobody else understands the value of #Manwoody
5 Aug 13, 04:56 AM
Erinyes: All the time I used to spend reading the forums is now time I have NO idea what to do with myself...A this point I'd sell a kidney to get the furums back up and running *pleading*
4 Aug 13, 11:42 PM
jesicka309: I miss the forums so much. :( I'm so lonely *sob*

Office of the Hand: Check out the podcast store for a link to sign up for 30 day amazon prime trial, no matter how long you try it, we get $2 per signup (US) - ... iate-links
4 Aug 13, 12:07 PM
Office of the Hand: Time intensive in that the time it takes from his writing schedule to produce it
4 Aug 13, 12:07 PM
Office of the Hand: It seems less time intensive than first person POVs and gets us good information at the same time, I'm fine with it
4 Aug 13, 11:23 AM
Kevin: I'm not sure I like GRRM's decision to write the story in the style of a Maester writing a historical account.
3 Aug 13, 06:38 AM
H: ... in-excerpt
3 Aug 13, 06:38 AM
H: Excerpt from Dangerous Women
2 Aug 13, 08:20 PM
Kyle: Cersei would disapprove. But to hell with her. That's awesome.
2 Aug 13, 07:29 PM
DireWolfOfTheNorth: My 10 year old got a hamster today and let me name it Tyrion. How awesome is that.
2 Aug 13, 06:19 PM
Lady Grey: Already having a great friday and now another episode!?! Yea-ahh :)
2 Aug 13, 04:43 PM
Office of the Hand: audio spliced together all wrong, have to export the audio file again and release episode later today
sillent: might do ice and fire con after graduating / when I have a job etc :P
2 Aug 13, 08:28 AM
claudiusthefool: I'll also be driving from Long Island to Ohio, so if anyone along the way needs a ride let me know. Thanks!
2 Aug 13, 08:27 AM
claudiusthefool: If you are interested please email me at
2 Aug 13, 08:27 AM
claudiusthefool: Tara, one of the coordinators just told me there are only 10 tickets left.
2 Aug 13, 08:26 AM
2 Aug 13, 08:26 AM
claudiusthefool: The rooms apparently can fit up to 4 people. You just need to purchase your own tickets on their website,
2 Aug 13, 08:26 AM
claudiusthefool: If anyone needs to share a room but hasn't booked one yet I'm looking for 1 or 2 people to share with.
2 Aug 13, 08:26 AM
claudiusthefool: I just purchased a ticket and booked a suite at Ravenwood Castle for next year's Ice and Fire Con.
2 Aug 13, 08:25 AM
claudiusthefool: Hi All. I was hoping to post this on the forums, but as they are down this seems to be the best place.
2 Aug 13, 08:16 AM
FTWard: I sent Index and email. I hope Fantasy Football will not be too difficult to manage with the forum issue. :(
1 Aug 13, 05:31 PM
Kevin: So no APOIAF fantasy football league this year?
1 Aug 13, 02:47 PM
Mordion: Also, if you're on the fence, tickets are going really fast
1 Aug 13, 02:46 PM
Mordion: Anyone bought tickets for Ice and Fire Con but is looking for a place to sleep? I've got a room in the castle with an available sleeper sofa, as well as a regular sofa and I'm looking for roommates
1 Aug 13, 11:00 AM
Van Leader: There needs to be a drinking game for the books
1 Aug 13, 06:54 AM
Snarf: Snarf!
31 Jul 13, 06:04 PM
jesicka309: I'm hoping for a total implosion of the whole system. And it becomes a democracy. And whoever is riding the dragons with Dany will fly off with her to Valyria to plant gardens etc. to get over PTS
31 Jul 13, 03:19 PM
sillent: am I the only one who will be disappointed if Dany Jon and Tyrion become the three dragon riding targs to single handedly save the day?
31 Jul 13, 02:03 PM
Last of the Giants: ership and capabilities of judgment of the Father, and the ability to build (relationships, allianciances, better sytems) of the Smith. Who else could be the Stranger but Tyrion?
31 Jul 13, 02:02 PM
Last of the Giants: I am convinced that yrion is a secret Targaryan. Dany has the body and desires of the Maid, the heart of the Mother, and the wisdom of the Crone. Jon (L+R) has the abilities of the Warrior, the lead
31 Jul 13, 12:59 PM
Van Leader: Anybody put thought into who will run the watch now? Marsh, Edd..
30 Jul 13, 06:50 PM
Lady Grey: The episodes featuring Larry Williams and discussing the TV show are safe and should help whet your appetite for more apoiaf awesomeness after you get to reading. ;)
30 Jul 13, 05:20 PM
jesicka309: Try Game of Owns....I hear that's spouiler free (except for the TV show) over on
30 Jul 13, 03:25 PM
lincom1: by finishing all 5 books first? most of the episodes are spoiler filled. good luck
30 Jul 13, 12:54 PM
tkf0urtw00ne: i just discovered this podcast, and i want to start in a place that's spoiler-free (i've seen all GOT ep's, but only read through about half of the 2nd book). where should i begin?
29 Jul 13, 05:37 PM
jesicka309: Guys Night In!!! :P
29 Jul 13, 02:39 PM
מ־ס: interview with mr Martin
29 Jul 13, 01:17 AM
The Messenger: What is he editing?
28 Jul 13, 08:38 PM
jesicka309: @barrelroll Nope not stupid - only the most recent podcasts come up on iTunes. Older epsiodes need to be manually downloaded from the downloads page on this website. :)
28 Jul 13, 08:19 AM
barrelroll42: i can only find the last 16 podcasts on I just being stupid?
26 Jul 13, 02:27 PM
GreenSkies1534: thanking you :)
25 Jul 13, 02:56 PM
Office of the Hand: Not sure what happened to the earlier links but I have put up some links to alternate storage for first 50 episodes
25 Jul 13, 02:41 PM
GreenSkies1534: anyway to get the first 50 or so episodes of this? :)
25 Jul 13, 02:25 PM
FTWard: ZOE!!!!! They got the right Ellaria. Why couldn't they reunite her with the right Viper?
25 Jul 13, 12:00 PM
Van Leader: Indira Varma from Rome will play Ellaria Sand
25 Jul 13, 09:17 AM
sillent: linecom, GNC is my favorite theory.. has been for a while :D
25 Jul 13, 08:52 AM
25 Jul 13, 08:51 AM
lincom1: anyone reading the grand northern conspiracy theory thats out there? so far its blowing my mind
24 Jul 13, 11:36 PM
jesicka309: Noooooooooo say it isn't so!!
24 Jul 13, 11:16 PM
Office of the Hand: Are you sure we ever had forums? Perhaps it was all in your imagination ;)
24 Jul 13, 08:38 PM
jesicka309: I will definitely be back. I've run out of internets to read at work again. *sigh* please come back forums!
24 Jul 13, 07:09 PM
Vaarsuvius: podcast relevant
24 Jul 13, 06:24 PM
Erinyes: I agree with Mordion but the forums are still a part of that community - guess we'll be separating the tourists from the purists ;)
24 Jul 13, 04:51 PM
Office of the Hand: Episode 115 pre-episode survey:
24 Jul 13, 02:42 PM
Mordion: I'm not too worried about the community, the podcast brought everyone here in the first place, as long as there are new episodes, I think people will come back.
24 Jul 13, 11:56 AM
ShadowStalker: Beginning to worry about the forum community here disappearing as time goes on... I've stopped checking each day to see if the forums are backup...
24 Jul 13, 10:11 AM
FTWard: Good Martin interview very interesting 5 year gao info ... -886117845
23 Jul 13, 12:10 PM
Erinyes: @ easttexasdirewolf : great IM (even got teary at the end)
23 Jul 13, 11:16 AM
Vaarsuvius: *lights a candle*
23 Jul 13, 08:24 AM
easttexasdirewolf: ... g-the-dead
23 Jul 13, 07:31 AM
Valyrian Neil: With you Erinyes. Still have my ASOIAF DTs.
23 Jul 13, 06:02 AM
Erinyes: ~==] ~==] ~==] Candlelight vigil for our beloved APOIAF forums, who's with me?
23 Jul 13, 01:52 AM
Harry: Oh, ok. I found the older episodes by just clicking "next" from the main page, so I'm good!
23 Jul 13, 01:24 AM
jesicka309: @Harry That's weird, there used to be links to all the old eps. Probably a bug they're still sorting out. Hold tight! :)
23 Jul 13, 01:08 AM
Harry: I can't see any of the episodes before episode 49 on the list on the downloads page. Is this only happening for me?
22 Jul 13, 09:29 PM
jesicka309: I'm streaming it off iTunes now, no problems at all. :)
22 Jul 13, 09:10 PM
Office of the Hand: How about itunes?
22 Jul 13, 09:10 PM
Office of the Hand: Website/downloads working fast now?
22 Jul 13, 08:55 PM
Office of the Hand: We are proud to have perhaps the most diverse listenership of any asoiaf or GOT podcast
22 Jul 13, 08:05 PM
Ciao: Yes! I'm apparently one of only nine New Zealanders who downloads from the site :D
22 Jul 13, 01:42 PM
Office of the Hand: Itunes feed has been updated but it might not work with the faster link for a few days
22 Jul 13, 01:42 PM
Office of the Hand: It lets us keep track of download #s and stats
22 Jul 13, 01:41 PM
Office of the Hand: or
22 Jul 13, 01:41 PM
Office of the Hand: Pls Use the google shortlinks if downloading
22 Jul 13, 10:14 AM
Kyle: Alternate Download link for latest episode :!mARVGSII!Z5zKWH1PP ... 0jex5edrkI
22 Jul 13, 09:36 AM
Bina007: Thanks Mimi!
22 Jul 13, 09:36 AM
Bina007: ok so now I listened and I realised that they're upgrading to make it all fast again. Which is awesomeballs,
22 Jul 13, 07:47 AM
Lezuzius: yep, also slow for me: 18 hours left from my download. Like back in the old days when I had to leave my pc turned on for the whole night to get an episode of whatever I was watching in those days.
22 Jul 13, 06:45 AM
Bina007: Is anyone else having major probs listening to the new podcast ep? Both trying to listen directly on this page or from the iTunes podcast app is so slow it crashes.
18 Jul 13, 09:05 AM
sillent: emmy nominations are up.. kinda sad NCW didn't get a nod :(
18 Jul 13, 02:27 AM
Kyle: I'm at Comic-Con. On twitter follow @apoiaf for Game of Thrones stuff. And follow me @madcanard for anything else I find.
17 Jul 13, 07:23 PM
Lady Grey: Happy to help! Actually I'm desperate to talk about asoiaf right now. Even thinking of joining Westeros forums but that's just not the same.
17 Jul 13, 03:18 PM
Van Leader: Thanks, the new casting for the tv show made me think of him
17 Jul 13, 03:03 PM
Lady Grey: Jacelyn Bywater. Seemed like a good guy but was killed by his own men when they broke at the BotBW
17 Jul 13, 12:31 PM
Van Leader: Who was the guy Tyrion put in charge of the gold cloaks
16 Jul 13, 05:55 PM
DireWolfOfTheNorth: Mimi's sigil would be a creaking door.
16 Jul 13, 10:52 AM
FTWard: ... 617445.jpg
16 Jul 13, 09:42 AM
George: TWOW will be out earlier then the forums!
16 Jul 13, 06:41 AM
Vaarsuvius: If Mimi had a sigil, what would be on it?? A table flipping?? Ours is the Nerd Rage?? xD
16 Jul 13, 01:46 AM
The Insider: ETA - July 31st
15 Jul 13, 08:08 AM
brynden: the problem (i think) is: Mimi is the one responsible - and it was often mentioned how full the queen's schedule is...
15 Jul 13, 06:44 AM
FTWard: :glad:
15 Jul 13, 02:34 AM
Erinyes: This may or may not be posted on 'faceplant' but I don't suppose there is some sort of estimate for the work on the forum....I've also checked twitter...
15 Jul 13, 02:02 AM
Erinyes: Just wanted to share with any gamers on the forum that I have finally gotten myself a proper gaming Alienware beast of a machine, rejoice! That is all...and I REALLY miss the forum :(
13 Jul 13, 05:21 PM
Office of the Hand: Facebook event to keep track of convention atendees:
13 Jul 13, 06:20 AM
Erinyes: Office of the Hand, you are wise and your comments are duly noted ;)
12 Jul 13, 10:36 PM
Office of the Hand: If you can get your hands on any cabin or room you could probably find a roommate or more if they are willing to sleep on air mattress or in sleeping bag
12 Jul 13, 10:35 PM
Office of the Hand: Re: Erinyes. Gypsy wagon could fit 4 but 2 is probably more comfy and enough, 4 is crowded. It is just a one room thing. It is also had no bedding so you need air mattresses or sleeping bags
