It would be good, I think, to save the ZFI archive if that is even possible. As for trying to get it up and running again ... are there any good reasons to do that? The last weeks there were mostly chit chat and chummy banter, pointless I would say. Nevertheless I look forward to seeing how this Zenspace001 might develop with new people who find their way here as well as ZFI alumni. What do you think elG? As administrator, are you open to a broader view of 'Zenspace' than simply discussing ZFI status and upgrade. Can this place become a new online place for, as you say, Zen Buddhists to discuss the Dharma? And I do appreciate that distinction, namely discussing Dharma more broadly with less particular emphasis on the Zen perspective of Dharma. I would also like to see a more welcoming place for non Zen Buddhists to be able to inquire/question/challenge the zen approach to Buddhist practice.

Thanks for getting something started here.
