Bye bye France Ambassy of TuDiabetes

So there was a French ambassador with a page about France. this ambassador was I, Brigitte, French type 1 who is living in France.
And now there is no more this page. I couldn't get the time to say bye bye to all the members of this page-group and that's make me very sad. So forget that story, sometimes there are unhappy ends in the stories... But I want to tell you that I'm always here in the community and if I can help you about France or anything else I will be there.
Just some words about what I've done under my name of ambassador, maybe not the greatest work but as the French ambassador my mayor said yes, to light in blue my city hall and I must tell you that this year there was only one building in blue in my country and it was my city hall ( see http:// . Last year I made an afternoon screening of Diabetes. And I try to connect with all the people who live in France from our community. Sometimes I got answers, sometimes no. So turn the page of this story and just thank you to all the friends of the French ambassador, follow me on my own page.
Bye bye.

This must be some sort of technical malfunction. My account for DHF Embassy Germany is suspended too. The suspension system of ning has even blocked IP address. I had to use a different computer with a different IP to be able to sign in with my normal account. Something went very wrong here so in my view it is too early for a farewell ;-)

I received an email from tudiabetes that Embassies will be closed. The Embassy of Canada is closed too. But I didn't get the time to tell my friends from this page ( for instance you, Kristin, Linda and others). It was closed. Did you receive the mail? my was from the first December and it was writing several sentences and this sentence : " we have recently been analyzing all of our programs and have
decided that it is time to dismantle the Ambassadors program." sad.

That would be very rude. I have invested much effords in providing a translation of important terms from German to English and vice versa. I can not believe that they would delete my work without warning. This can not be and I will get an explanation.

Your work was so great! I read your translation and I was thinking to make the same... And now all your work is nowhere. Did you receive an email before they did that?

Comment by Holger Schmeken on December 7, 2011 at 5:23am

Actually I can not imagine that this is intended. I just got the message that they are investigating this technical issue. You got the message that the embassies have been closed on purpose. One of those message must be wrong - very strange indeed. I did not receive any mail indicating what they are planning to do - until I have read your blog...

Okay, now I have got it. I did receive the mail on December 1th but due to a technical glitch it was routed to a different account. This mail clearly indicates that the DHF Ambassador program is DEAD.
