I had a window pop up that suggests this forum is ending on Sept. 19, 2018. Actually, now it is on the banner. Is that correct?

I saw it too. What's the deal here. This site ain't that popular that you can command a pay for play thing. If it goes to costing anything, we'll just migrate to another free site.

We all will just need to know where some of our GURUS end up, and we'll go there too.

Unfortunate. This forum has become one of my daily stopping points. I do believe I've seen one or two of the guru's from this site on the MILSURPS forum.

Check out the Carbine Collectors Forum. There are a few familiar names there too.

Seems like there is a MISSED OPPORTUNITY here.

CMP is just about to start their sale of Model 1911 A1 pistols. These are as much a part of history as are the carbines.

This forum should expand to include the 1911s. There will be lots of people looking for advice and insight on these guns, and as we all know, there are many people here who can provide it.

I don't know who is responsible for having this forum set up and running - but I thank you, whoever you are. Is there any plan to move the forum to another 'free' hosting site? Any consideration of moving to a 'contribution' forum similar to the one Milsurps has, to offset the costs of a paid hosting site?

I belong to a couple paid sites - one shooting related and one radio control scale modeling related. I would pay to keep this forum.

Cheers,

I've been asked if there are any plans to continue this forum as a paid forum. Tuna and I are moderators. We are not the forum operators nor the forum founders. We do not have any control over that decision and as far as I know, neither of us has been contacted by Warbaby concerning the continuation of the forum. Honestly, I don't know the answer to the question. That would not be up to either of us, and until notified by others, we have no info other than what you folks have read. Sorry, but we don't know either.

I had hoped this was an issue of a cyber-attack of some sort and it would all be cleaned-up and corrected. I guess not. I hope this forum survives somehow, but if it dosen't....I have enjoyed every minute of it. I have learned a lot about carbines from you folks....see you on the other side!

I have tried to contact the company who has this forum in that maybe it can be paid for but all I got was that there was a server error. I will try again tomorrow. It seems the company is out of Ireland.

I have found out some information on the forum. It looks like the cost will be about $150 a year which is not too bad. But I cannot do it as I am not the owner of the forum. I will try to see if the owner can be contacted about this if we the users pay for the service. This is all I can do right now.

From what I understand ForumCo is having a little trouble setting up a way for forums to migrate from "free" to paid. Apparently, their web site currently does not allow it. They have had a month to do this, but as usual they are slow on the draw. They are currently only disabling inactive forums at this point in time. At any rate, the plug will be pulled at some point and as a long time member here I wish all members adieu in indeed this forum is shutdown. See ya'll on the flip side mates and special kudos to Ole Jim and Tuna for keeping this site going all these years.

Meanwhile, if you have posts you don't want to lose, open that post, select "print" from your browser's commands, when the print window opens up, select print to "Adobe PDF" instead of your normal printer. A pdf file of the post will be generated that you can save in a folder with other posts.

No problemo. Keep us all posted on the when and wheres of helping out with the annual costs if it can come to that. It's the 23rd now and the boat is still floating so that much is good.

Well for now I would suggest we keep this forum as active as possible.
