Is the old forum gone?


Hello everyone...bluesurge from the old this the new forum? Is the old one gone for good without a heads up? there's tons and tons of information there that I HOPE is not wiped out...does anyone have any info?


I’m hoping that’s not the case, the old forum is a gold mine of information and memories. Sean hit me up on Facebook we have a group I can add you too while this is sorted out that has many of our members.

that's the thing...I don't have a facebook account :( I got rid of it a few years ago once I started teaching and students were finding me even when I had a fake name up!

It sure does look like they deleted the old forum. It's nice that they finally updated the doowop website..but they should have archived the old forum rather than deleting it. Poor decision on their part.

I suppose it was inevitable. I never got the feeling that the DWPL had much interest in keeping up the forum. Still, very disappointing that it was deleted without any notice.

WOW , why did the delete the old forum,, would have been nice for a heads up

  • did bonellis market building sell? I saw an address in property transfers that I believe is the market.
  • looks like they want to have a stretch focusing on retail and new decorations:
  • This is a bit outdated. I was going to post this earlier this past summer, however my laptop died- along with all my bookmarks. Back on August 7 , The Dom Giordano Program on Philadelphia talk radio station 1210 WPHT interviewed Wildwood Mayor Ernie Troiano. It was supposed to be an interview about Ocean City, NJ's problem with seagulls and how Wildwood deals with their seagulls. In addition to seagulls, the interview touched on some other topics including the season in general and Pacific Ave. Something I learned from the interview... I never knew Wildwood is known as "The blue collar Riviera". In reference to the seagulls, the mayor commented, "They actually are our best cleaners of the beach...Without them our beaches would be a hell of a lot dirtier". Concerning Pacific Avenue, the Mayor said, although they're trying to revitalize Pacific Ave., "Our main street basically in the summer is the boardwalk... You can't compete against the boardwalk". Anyway, here is a link to the interview in case anyone is interested in listening to it... in case anyone is interested, here is a link to a more recent interview from October 15 , from the same radio program in which the Mayor is interviewed about the Philadelphia woman who was arrested on the beach last summer, who is now suing Wildwood. The Mayor refers to the lawsuit as a "money grab". Link to article and audio clip... (In both interviews, the Mayor sounds a bit nervous when commenting about his re-election coming up in November.)
