So the group is "City of New Babbage", right? At https://www.facebook.com/cityofnewbabbage/

I can find that group, or community, and see posts from July going back, though a lot of posts seem to be missing. But if I try to click "Learn More", which links back to this website, Facebook freaks out and posts:

Could that have something to do with it? I don't Facebook very hard, so I have no idea if that's normal or if that's a separate issue.

Nope. There's a "page" called City of New Babbage. No one else can post to it other than the owner. To solve that a GROUP was set up just called New Babbage. That's the one that seems to have gone MIA.

He can't see it either though he can apparently find it in search. I've left an IM for Tenk too.

The old New Babbage group is still MIA today. At least it's not just me that can't find it. Thanks for following up on this with Tenk, Edward Pearse.

I can't see or search it. If FB torched the group, I am just going to start making any New Babbage postings over to here for sure. Been meaning to anyway and I am finding less and less use for FB in general. It's a shame all the fun and interesting links we have posted there are just *gone* but unfortunately it's not the first FB group I have seen this happen to. The other group that I was part of did not get returned to FB, no explanation was given and all the info that was not saved to someone's HD was just gone, photos, everything.

For anyone who hasn't heard yet, the New Babbage Facebook page has returned from its vacation in another dimension. The clockwinder won't cop to it, but I think he threatened it with cat videos 0.O
