1  General Forum Information and Guides / Forum Related Announcements / Forum is running on auto... on: April 18, 2016, 02:01:30 am
I just do not have the time to devote to the forum...

So have set to auto registrations..

Each of you Moderators may be a little busier than normal as will find quite a few spammers .. You will have to give them the boot as they arise..

The forum is for sale, or will simply hand over to a "qualified" member... Must have html and BB coding experience.

Truly wish the best to you all, and happy cabbing !

Hi Shawn and thank you very much..

Guys and gals... Just when I thought was ok for me to get back and carry on with online activities, I again have to turn the computer off for next several days... Can not ignore the need to focus on some things at home..

Take care George!

Thank you :)

Truth be told..  Been a pretty rough lately.  I have another forum for my new interests in Chinese art/antiques, but it consumes a lot of my extra time. Which I don't mind because it is my hobby and current passion..  But, am starting to loose interest in maintaining this forum ..   Getting old ain't for Sissy's, that's for sure, but it plays it's part for me lately.

About ready to put the forum on auto, and let new registrations be approved at the time of registration..  The emails are a bit much.  To confirm a new registration is not spam motivated.. It takes a few communications back and forth for each approval .. And there are usually three to as many as seven registrations requests daily.

Damn man..  Had so much fun with you and other long time members here.   An awesome hobby !  Creating this forum, building it, and maintaining it was a passion of love.. Although it rubbed some the wrong way, it was a part of me in a way.. That was my motivator to come back.  To just sort of at least keep things up to date..  But I really do want to bow out and cut back on some of my online activities aside from my current hobby..

Any hooo Dave.. You are among several here that I share many wonderful memories with..  yes  I would like to have met you in person and maybe even hit the hills with you in search of those beautiful little nuggets !

The end date for this voting is actually a week away.. Went ahead and put Sandsaves cab up today, but if everyone wants to keep voting until the 14th, and the results are different, I will change it..

Attachments like photos and pdf's will not work for maybe two weeks or so..

So if you want to post pictures, your going to have to use Photobucket, FlickR or some other outside photo hosting service.

Things will be a bit messed up for about two weeks.. Until they switch servers.

Any feature that edits files has been disabled till new servers are installed.

I can not edit the forum software at all..

Things like Camillia's contest cab and pic can not be edited, and so on...

I think I have copies of the tutorials I had written if they are gone.  If not it is sad but not the end of life as we know it...   bricks bricks

Yes, all will be well for sure..

Having a bit of a disaster ...

Just found out the owners of the software are having legal issue with their hosting provider.

Unfortunately due to illegal content posted by a user on some other forum, the server was seized....

This very bad and hopefully the software provider will have a resolution soon. Worst case some data will be gone their are backups.

The really bad news is that their decision is now final to pull the drives. It will be at least 3 to 5 days for sites to be back. There will be some data loss. Posts and topics are safe as of right now. But attachments, changes to styles, pictures made since 12/30/2015 will be lost for sure.

If I am typing a long post I get logged out and to keep from loosing everything I have to copy, log back in then paste. I am a good typerer but it takes me a while to figure out what I want to say and how I want to say it. I am not talking hours here but under 30 minutes for sure.

Anyone else have this problem?

If you forget to copy you can go back to the previous page and copy before you log back in. I consider this a real pain in the patooty.
Jim

That is unusual for sure..  Took a look through your settings, and nothing stands out..

I wonder if your internet is timing out rather than the forum logging you out.

If you want, PM me your password and I will log in under you and see if it does the same for me.  This should not affect you being able to log in at the same time.

EVERY time that I have advertised equipment for sale of Bob's Rock shop, I have been come after by the foreign scammers offering to have their freight company pick it up and my " Official" Bank check would come by FED X .

Did the foreign scammers contacting you happened after using the forum's classifieds, or someplace else ?

Someone sent me an email letting me know that they were able to see the classifieds prior to reaching the 50.

Maybe someone with less than 50 posts can confirm they see this http://gemstone.smfforfree4.com/index.php/board,6.0.html

Let me know if anyone still gets this error message..

Pretty sure it is fixed..
