Thursday’s Dump & Chase: The final countdown
Our final day at the old site is here, and we’ve got links for you.
So sorry for the late D&C—we’re already having some functionality issues, with this post not going live as scheduled and other sites starting to report comments disappearing. We’ll be mirroring the game preview as well as the game thread at the temporary site.
In case you missed the announcement, On the Forecheck can temporarily be found at https://on-the-forecheck.ghost.io/, probably through the weekend and possibly a little bit longer depending on how long the domain name transfer takes, before returning to this comfortable and familiar URL.
And now, the links:
