Definitely support this, I have used this site aton to grab poems for poetry readings locally.
Also I have brought a lot of my older / newer poems from the forum to work on with local writers and friends.
I know I am not as active as I used to be but I value what this site did for me who is a continuously growing writer and appreciate the archive.
One thought before restarting / deleting work would be to give people who have once actively posted a deadline to get there work onto another medium.

In my town of Missoula, MT we lost a local independent paper over night without warning from a large news company. I played in alot of bands who were reviewed from the paper, and I used there archive for press kits, and to describe art I helped make without using my own words. When the whole archive was deleted I felt so much loss, almost like they deleted history and accomplishments.

Anyways, I think letting people know poems they worked hard on will be deleting off the server would be good. So they get the chance to save their ideas.

I just wanted to drop in real quick to say that I’m really sorry to hear about this. It was only through this site that I was able to rid a lot of the mistakes that beginners make in poetry. I would invert my syntax, force rhymes, use pretentious words and phrases (and admittedly still do at times) to sound like whatever a poet is “supposed” to sound like. I learned a lot from here, from you guys.

I’ve been really busy with school and haven’t had much time to be active on here. I will do my best in the coming weeks to help with bringing the site back to life.

I'm just a lurker, reader, appreciator.  But sure, put me on the list.  I just like people who strive to come up with something...anything succinctly beautiful in word.  It keeps me from giving up.

PS> That Ray Heinrich guy put up some deceptively accessible heart percolating stuff.  He had knack for complexity rendered palatably sweet.
You can't hate me more than I hate myself.  I win.
