Eh, you guys could always start a new board at one of the free hosting sites like ProBoards and then NJF wouldn’t be on the hook for hosting/domain fees.

Ted you've been here for as long as I can remember and spend a great deal of time signed in to the site, on what seems like a daily basis. You are a top ten member for most time spent on the forum. I believe you also go back to the very beginning of this forum. We definitely share some of the same favorite bands and it has been a pleasure having you and conversing with you all this time and thank you for being a die hard regular on the site.

The Pro Boards suggestion might be a cost free easy avenue for someone other than myself to pursue if they really wanted a site for us regulars to hang. The downside would be you would have to start everything all over again topic wise and wouldn't have the benefit of having everything all set up and already there such as I had it when I took this place over.

I'd also like to give a shout out to some members who at one time or another over the course of these last five years were major contributors, some still come by once in a while, others haven't been around in some time now, but I would like to recognize their contributions and their help along the way.

I'll give a shout-out to Shadow Walker, who posted here occasionally. He also posted on Blackbird's behalf that one time (page 17 of the Beatdown Room thread, y'all) and still posted every once in awhile even after he got shit on a bit by us. Takes balls.

Also Dendroica, sorry for forgetting about you, you have been a mainstay for a long while as well. Juat saw you signed in and remembered I had not mentioned you by name.

Also yes forgot about Shadow Walker.

Um hello, you forgot me too  >:D

Sucks to see the place going to wind down, but it's as good a time as any, with all the uncertainty of everything and financial hardship going on right now. I can't say I blame you. The whole state of the music industry is in pretty much disarray right now also. 2020 the year of change lol.

Will miss this place and y'all. Always entertaining reading the clever, witty and sometimes cheeky banter...  ;)  Thanks for the ride, NJ! 8)

It was never about having balls, just challenging the status quo with a different point of view. But I do appreciate the shout-out nonetheless...

Would it be possible to migrate the forum to a free host like this one?

So what're we looking at here, NJ? Do you know when this plug will be getting pulled?

At or around October 26th is when the scheduled site renewals are set to expire.

testing 1, 2, 3

To anyone who was asking if the was working properly currently. Apparently it still is. Must have been a temporary glitch. The site still has a month remaining.....Unless of course, someone takes it over 😉

The site is back up under normal graphics and operation now. That was due to a technical fuckup on my end. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I had posted a couple things yesterday and today but they disappeared this afternoon. I posted again in the Beat Down Room thread. Let's see if it sticks (like so much shit).

Imagine my surprise after having been absent for some time,  to pop on this morning and see this era is coming to an end.  While I too am sad to see it go, I understand.   Thank you NJFF and everyone else who fought the good fight.  I've enjoyed being a small part in it.  I, too, am over at .com but my name there is 02custom.  I  hope everyone stays safe and  wish you all well.  \m/
