Posted: Yesterday the very popular site Couchsurfing crashed. I know there are some Hoppers that were members of it. So please forward this message to all your established contacts:
Greetings... this email was sent to me to send to you!
As you may or may not know, couchsurfing.org appears to have been shutdown without warning as of June 30. This is a calamity to those who are amidst travels and rely on the site for contacting hosts or surfers. In response, https://www.savecouchsurfing.org has been established to patch connections with people through a forum until a more permanent solution can be found. News and updates can be seen at:
Dear CouchSurfers, It is with great enthusiasm that we announce the launch of CouchSurfing version 2.0. CouchSurfing as we knew it, version 1.0, is gone but the project will not die! Please check out https://www.couchsurfing.com to learn more about what is happening and get involved. In the past several days, we have received an unprecedented outpouring of love, support, and offers of help from all over the world. It is clear the CouchSurfing community must carry on, and have been working around the clock (literally) to re-launch the network. You have responded overwhelmingly that you want this project to continue to grow, and thrive, and together we can create an even better version of CouchSurfing. We expect to have the site fully functioning in 10 days. In the mean time, we've created a message board to keep you up to date on developments and help you reconnect with friends, surfers and hosts. You can find it at https://couchsurfing.hyperboards.com. Thanks again for your continued support. Together we can create a better world, one couch at a time. We love you! The CouchSurfing Core Team and the CouchSurfing Collective: Casey, Heather, Nathalie, Jim, Dani, Seb, Leo, Dan, Rico, Aldo, Jesse, Konstantinos, Gretelle, Duke, Alex, Giancarlo, John, Julienne, Chris, Mercy, Mark, Amylin, Daniel, Caitlin, Allan, PY, Jessica, Francis, Rachel, Mathieu, Tyler, Natalia, Alejandrito, Juely, Mari-eve
