What Happened to Kayo’s Flow Forum? (Again)

Hi Everyone,

Long-time-no-update indeed! I know much of my menstrual faithfuls and community members have really been lost due to the disappearance of Kayo’s Flow Forum. I wholeheartedly thank a MiM reader “Caroline” for her very helpful tidbit that he has graciously posted on this blog. For those who are not familiar with Kayo’s (and I do need to stress that the site is “Viewers Discretion” and NSFW), it has been the mother-ship of all things menstrual – or rather, more of an erotic nature rather than an educational one. Kayo’s Flow Forum had been discontinued without prior notice, probably to the chagrin of many readers. It was located at http://www.dotcomjunkies.com/members/kayo/forum/ and http://www.spamfreeforums.com/kayo/index.shtml which are now no longer operational and renders an empty/defunct webpage.

I visited Kayo’s daily since the day of the shutdown and sadly, it was never resurrected and I kept on seeing a white empty page. When I thought “it was all over”….

Ah I knew I could count on you to still be in “the flow”. Yep, SpamFreeForums closed it doors and snuck off in the dead of night, leaving no forwarding address. It sucks. I have set up a temporary forum for us to gather our thoughts and try to figure out how to get ourselves a stable home. Go here: http://kayosflowforum.freeforums.net/. It’s free… easy to register. I don’t intend to make it a permanent forum because honestly the interface sucks… but options are limited for us poor “marginal topic” folks I guess. How about a Facebook page?? lol… anyhow… that’s the news. Hope to see some familiar names at the new site!

This brings great relief to the menstrual “fan” community that we have settled and have hopefully found a place that we can call home again. I will of course be updating my navigation link to reflect the change in URL. Unfortunately, the new Kayo’s Flow Forum will probably take quite a while to show up on search engines again and push down the remnants of our old home. I’m sure many people who are wonder, “OH NO, where did Kayo’s Flow Forum go?!” are still getting redirected to the old site when using search engine queries. I panicked just as much as you guys did, as that is one of the few popular places on the internet that has a ‘beyond loving welcome of menstruation’… I am certainly seeing many other “period-positive” sites… but just not generally of that “nature”.

I’ve been told that this new landing spot may be temporary, permanent or temporarily-permanent (hah).

We all breathe a sigh-of-relief this day as we know that TFF still lives. I want to thank everyone’s effort in this, everyone from the webmasters to my “informants” who keep a watchful eye.

Now it looks like we can all “Have A Happy Period!

What Happened to Kayo’s Flow Forum?

Hi Everyone,

Long-time-no-update indeed! I know much of my menstrual faithfuls and community members have really been lost due to the disappearance of Kayo’s Flow Forum. I wholeheartedly thank a MiM reader “Another_Jeffrey” for his very helpful tidbit that he has graciously posted on this blog. For those who are not familiar with Kayo’s (and I do need to stress that the site is “Viewers Discretion” and NSFW), it has been the mother-ship of all things menstrual – or rather, more of an erotic nature rather than an educational one.

It was located at http://www.dotcomjunkies.com/members/kayo/forum/ which is now no longer operational and renders an empty webpage.

Kayo’s Flow Forum is down at the moment because the domain name expired. It is not known if DCJ will continue in operation.

I visited Kayo’s daily since the day of the shutdown and sadly, it was never resurrected and I kept on seeing a white empty page. When I thought “it was all over”….

After a temporary run at periodforum.com (whose account was suspended), Kayo has restored the site at
http://www.spamfreeforums.com/kayo/index.shtml
It is physically on the same server that housed dotcomjunkies.com. The archives are still on that server, it is just a question of how to get it over to the spamfreeforums partition. No password required to post for the moment, but details of how to secure a handle are included in the first few posts at the new site.

This brings great relief to the menstrual “fan” community that we have settled and have hopefully found a place that we can call home again. I will of course be updating my navigation link to reflect the change in URL.

Please note that as per information provided by Another_Jeffrey and Kayo, that while handles are currently not mandatory, it’s suggested you get one registered for the near future where registration will be required (for posting). There currently isn’t an automated registration form, therefore you’ll have to do it the old fashion way as described here.

Hello people,

Please drop me an email and mention your desired handle. I will register it asap and sent you the password. sff_online at hotmail.com

Important; put “flow forum” in the subject. Its a busy mailbox…with this subject i can help faster 🙂

Best regards, webbie

Kayo also happened to change the current site introduction blurb, probably to reflect what happened/the current situation of TFF/TFF2. However, one of the members “Crossdresser” happened to have a record of the previous blurb which many of us has become accustomed to…:

Welcome All Menstruation Freaks!

Visit my Flow Forum II, sign my guestbook, or enter my private chat.

Why do we do this!? What’s WRONG with us!?
What ever happened to Bianca? Will she ever return? Who cares!?
Do women REALLY like talking about periods!!? Really??
Do guys really get off on this stuff? Do girls!!??

Aren’t you even the LEAST bit curious?… So? Come find out.

And then finally Kayo gave an official response to the situation, minus the details:

Many thanks to Karel (our old DCJ Gremlin Guru Webmaster) for getting us back on the ‘net.

I won’t make this a long story but to answer your questions. For reasons beyond Karel’s control, he could no longer maintain DCJ on the server it was on. He was very upset about this. He did maintain a backup site for DCJ (SpamFreeForums) and I remembered that he had posted the link on DCJ some time ago, in case DCj ever went off-line. So I went to SFF, but the link to DCJ was no longer there, and I could find nothing about DCJ. Taking a chance, I wrote to Webmaster at SFF looking for an email to Karel or Spekie. Karel got in touch with me and offered to set us up here on SFF. So all credit goes to Karel!!

The page looks and feels more or less the same because he is using the same script from DCJ. Spekie owns the server where everything was archived, so it may be possible at some point to get those old posts back, but the truth is we can start fresh and make new archives here. As more members find us and register, we might revive a few threads… we’ll see.

Karel has also tweaked a few things so Google will now display links to this page when searching for the old forum. It might not be the first page or even the second, but I checked with a few keywords and we’re getting some hits already.

We all breathe a sigh-of-relief this day as we know that TFF still lives. I want to thank everyone’s effort in this, everyone from the webmasters to my “informants” who keep a watchful eye.

Now it looks like we can all “Have A Happy Period!

What Makes This Site Worth It

I have a habit of checking my emails every morning, just to see if I need to “expect” anything during the day. Since I have all 5 of my email accounts hooked up to my iPhone, they all get pulled onto my phone once I switch it on. As I’m sitting there to “do my business” for the day, I saw 2 emails pop up in my MiM mailbox. One of them was particularly touching and really, emails like these are really what make running MiM worthwhile. Besides being an output for my menstrual interest and public discussions, I really enjoy hearing feedback from readers about their experiences with MiM. Certainly, not every experience or readers think that MiM is a great thing. Despite my efforts to bring menstruation out in the light of beauty, many, men and women alike, still find menstruation an abhorrent subject to be talking about, let alone from a heterosexual male. The email I got simply wasn’t a “I like your site” – but it was an expression of personal rapport, which is a very rare thing to receive over the internet. I felt deeply touched reading through the email and though I still have to reply to it, I decided to write this entry because I haven’t done one in so long. Rest assured, MiM is not going to become a past-legacy, I am still devoted into maintaining this blog and keeping it up-to-date as time permits. After all, the blog is secondary to my life and certainly friends and family alike are more important.

Recently, I was also featured on a pro-menstruation site, it was very exciting. I’m actually trying to sign up for Tumblr right now just so I can follow them, but apparently the workplace firewall is not a big fan of Tumblr and keeps blocking it. I suppose I will just have to wait until I go home. And yes, while working in the I.T. department I can probably break through it, but let’s just be on the safe side 😛 For those who are menstrual enthusiasts, I recommend you check out the following site: http://itsjustaperiod.tumblr.com/ — furthermore, the site is all about being inclusive of all lifestyles, which I felt grateful for. After all, there’s nothing more frowned upon it would seem, than a man writing about menstruation. Nevertheless, rather than being ridiculed over my interests, I was happy to see on their site that they gave the thumbs up to several of my posts, yay! I’ve of course added them to my links navigation because it’s a site really worth checking out!

I missed my bebe’s most recent period, that made me sad… but I did however, give her a few of the pads that I purchased in my most recent posting of Stayfree products that I purchased, hopefully she has found them comfortable and provides her with a sense of security! I’m rather pleased to hear that quite a few of my girls have really gotten great results using Stayfree pads, which makes me smile because feeling secure and safe with a product-of-choice makes those period days feel easier to get by, no one wants protection which scares them whether it will stand up to the flow!

One last site I wanted to make big mentions of is Kayo’s Flow Forum @ http://www.dotcomjunkies.com/members/kayo/forum/ — Even though they’ve been listed in my links navigation for ages, I thought they deserve some EXTRA credit because of how long they have been around for, what the site stands for and the history behind it. I’ll have to admit, before I even became of legal age, I had already been visiting Bianca’s (a pro-menstruation community) and when the site became overloaded with spammers, Kayo’s Flow Forum came to rise. I have been a member of Kayo’s for ages, again, even before I turned 18 (shhhhh….). Because the menstrual community is quite small in comparison to the vast world of the internet, it’s often hard for those with similar interests to find a place they can freely share information and their own personal thoughts. As such, there may be many out there interested in menstruation who don’t even know that this site exists. I should however mention that Kayo’s Flow Forum does have adult content and may or may not agree with your own interest in menstruation. The board itself welcomes (to everyone of legal age) everyone from the curious, the learner, menstruators, the interested or even the true hardcore fetishists. I’m not quite sure where I fall on that line, lol, but that’s irrelevant as the board is a fantastic place for you to meet people who are genuinely “into” menstruation. There, you will rarely find those who are object menstruation (that is unless we get a troll in or something) and while individuals interests vary, the board is oppression-free. There casual discussions over menstruation as well as those that are visually intensive. If you are the type of person who is easily offended, then I’d recommend you stick to the posts and not follow any of the links within the content. Also, we do have several female members who make huge contributions just with their presence alone as it helps align the male views of menstruation. If you feel comfortable with menstruation, as a male or female, we extend our open arms to you to join the community. You may or may not find what you want at Kayo’s, but it’s a great experience and will help expand your horizon over the interest of menstruation that you would never thought once existed!
