Just to keep you all up to date...Things are moving along slowly but surely...

The transfer of the site is working it's way through court as part of Les' estate. I have been in regular contact with Elaine to do our best to get this wrapped up as soon as we can and hand over control.

I'll keep the updates coming, hopefully we're near the finish line. As of now, I still have only minimal control over things, so hopefully we don't run into any major glitches.

I appreciate the support guys, right now it's kind of a holding pattern waiting for everything to transition over through the courts. Hopefully that will wrap up in the next couple of weeks. At that point I will be able to assess where everything stands. I know Elaine has been paying site bills to keep everything going through this, and I promised to reimburse her for it when we get everything sorted out.

I'm sure I will be taking you guys up on the offers of assistance when the time comes to take the helm. Keeping this site going, and getting it growing again, is how I wish to honor Les' memory.

Good afternoon ladies and gents...

So, after months of working to try to transition the site as-is we have come to a bit of an impasse...

To make a very long story short using my limited understanding of such things, the site is so antiquated and there are so many unknowns in where it is hosted and how it is constructed that we may be unable to make a seamless transition.

What that means at this point is still to be determined. Worst case, I will take the domain name and start a new forum, keeping it as close as possible to the original.

I will update if I hear anything new...

Brian

I'm open to suggestions, but the problem is at this point Les' wife is still coming out of pocket to keep it going until they can figure out the transition. She is understandably ready to pull the plug and I am becoming more inclined to agree... Unfortunately the company that is hosting is less than helpful...

It's looking more like we'll be going the Boatered 2.0 route...

Bummer. i sent you a PM a few mins ago.

Who is the forum software from, snitz forums, or somebody else? Even if we start over, would be nice to import all or the users from current version - but password encryption from 2000 probably wonít work with newer software - so that would be a problem. But other wise, in theory at least, should be possible to export from current database , and transform to new format before importing all of the threads.

Who is your current host? The existing hosts always suck at helping in a transition, but the new hosts are usually pretty good.

I would think there might be a platform that would port the site over as is. Would a place like GoDaddy migrate it to their servers?

This site is the depository of a treasure trove of information and advice

We need to find a way to save all the historic posts here.

We can all make some sort of monetary donation to see to it.

Seems to me that the searchable history of the site has limited value. Les even dropped lot of early history some time ago.

The membership and willingness to answer questions is its current value.

I suggest considering what is currently important before trying to completely replicate the site

Brian, I, for one, don't think she ought to be paying the bills for this site now, or in the future. Firstly, because I'm sure she has much more on her plate, and lastly, the longer she is forced to do the paying, the sooner she will be tempted to dump it all and just bail out!
PLEASE let us know how much $ you need to pay Elaine and have enough to pay the bills until you can transfer this site to a modern workable one in Our control.
