I was unable to access the forum for a couple of days.  When I clicked on links in my email reply, I reached the page titled “Lost?”  When I tried the login on that page, I was directed to make a donation.  Finally this switched over today, so that clicking on an email reply link takes me to the new address, as it should.  Maybe other members had the same problem, but gave up?  I wonder if all active members can be notified that the forum is now reached at forum.samharris.org, NOT the old samharris.org?

I have contacted everyone for whom I have an email or skype connection.

After an exchange with the ubers, they may be inclined to send an email notice to the entire forum membership. We shall see.

Sure could have been rolled out better. Advance notice would have been nice.  As it is, a lot of people may never find their way back.  But, at least it survived. May take awhile to rebuild.

I think they must have just fixed something because the old link wasn’t working for a time before that.  This is good.

Some of us are not members of Facebook so cannot access this link. 

Could someone outline what this is about?  Is this meant as a replacement of the forum topics for discussions about Sam Harris’ books and podcasts?

It seems to be an additional way to generate traffic, not a replacement. 
There were posts on another thread concerned about having another way to reconnect if the forum does disappear or can’t be found.
