I have checked the hosting and the access for the new site, doesn't seem to be a problem. I checked http://forum.language-learners.org for worldwide access.

Bit slow in India.

It isn't blocked on any spam list (although that is mostly for email) and I can't find it on any blacklisting sites. So it would seem it is your IT department software blocking it. Some corporate systems block access to forums.

Speed is an issue sometimes because it is shared hosting, but hopefully we'll be able to sort that out shortly.

Ahh sad! Thanks for checking.   For some reason our IT software classifies it as a game, not a forum. Which
is odd.

See the mods' statement. The community has no control over how long the current site stays available. Technically it can't be closed unless FX chooses to.

Just got back from three weeks away, and found that the new site is now blocked at work:

Block reason: Forbidden Category "Games"

So I really shouldn't be checking the site at work anyway, but ... I do. I'm not sure if this is an issue that is unique to our work servers, or if it's based on a tag embedded in the forum software.

It might be any of a number of reasons, mostly having to do with stupid tagging in filtering systems. I'd contact IT to report the site being mislabelled -- you'll be likely to find out what they're up to from their response, or be found out yourself ;)
