Forum shutting down in September
« on: August 04, 2021, 07:56:34 AM »
We have been maintaining the forum for the past few years with very little activity.
Due to the cost involved in yearly fees for the forum, we have decided that it just isn't financially feasible to maintain it any longer.

As most of you know, our facebook page is MUCH more active, and that is where we maintain our presence.

I agree - its basically useless becasue everyone uses Facebook (and new members get redirected to FB when they join here!)
I personally would rather use this format, but I'm definitely in the minority. Its way easier to do everything on a real website and you can set up an RSS for whatever topic(s) you're interested in.

I'm not a follower of FB and the feed is rediculous. Its great there is alot of traffic but its one giant chat room without topics and real threads. Too much info. And its FB...Not a fan.

For a while I tried to keep this forum up to date, but slacked off lately.  It would be great if more people used this platform, but unfortunately the FB allure is too strong.

IDK what the cost of running the forum is per year, but I wouldn't mind chipping in a little bit of coin to keep it up and running for those folks that don't care for using the other platforms.
