    This is your forum, it is a place that we hope you can find help and support from good people who have been through the same experiences in life getting involved one way or another in a relationship with a person in either the Philippines or the United Kingdom (Britain) of course depending on whether you are Filipino or British, or for that matter another western nationality, we are an open community and do not seek to restrict our membership to just Brits and Filipinos.

    Today we have to announce that for many complex reasons we have to move your forum to a new address.

    We came from a place that could have been much better, this place however was created by a great and talented wonderful young principled man named Sean Ryan to be a better place than where many of us had come from many years ago.

    We lost Sean this year, a young man who passed on from this world far too early, he had a vision for this forum and those of us who remain want to make sure that his vision continues and that this place continues to be here to help other people from our two wonderful countries.

    We are moving soon certainly before the 30th of August.

    The new site will be exactly the same as the old site it will just live at a different address in your browser.

    The new address is something that Sean really wanted to get a few years ago but he could not do that because the address was cyber-squatted for several years until we were able to buy it last December.

    The new address is

    http://www.british-filipino.com

    no big change just .com instead of .co.uk

    Right now we only have a message at the new address explaining that the move will happen soon, but I can assure you all that we have done all the necessary technical work to be sure that everything will work, we have a working backup of the forum at the new address already, all the technical issues are already resolved.

    Now it is only a matter of timing and dealing with some technical bugs that will exist for the first couple of days but I can assure you they will be minor bugs.

    I would like to invite all members who read this announcement to please post a reply here saying, yeah got it, seen it, I understand what's happening.

    If you do post please quote the next line in your own post

    British Filipino forum is moving to http://www.british-filipino.com

    this is so that people reading the last post in the thread will get the basic message of this first post, to all our friends in this growing community it would really help if you can all do that!

    One last and very important point is that many of you will have stored your passwords in your browser and you might not actually correctly remember your password, when the domain name changes from .co.uk to .com your browser will not be able to sign you in properly, so you might want to update your current password if you are not sure exactly what it currently is, if you do this please record your new password somewhere securely.

    Please keep watching the Forum Rules, Information and Announcements sub forum for any further news about the upcoming changes.

    A reminder of Sean Ryan whom I never met in person but whom I greatly liked and admired.

    We have a few things that we will be doing, the PM system is one but a mass emailing will happen as well, and that may be repeated at intervals over the next couple of months to catch all the users who might not login very often.

    Erm ... wouldn't it be easier to set up redirection so that british-filipino.com goes to british-filipino.com?

    This site is in Sean's name and I wonder if that may be proving a problem?

    Apparently some members can read this thread but cannot post on it, even though they can post on other threads. @ChoiAndJohn for example.
