Domain name has expired. I, for one, am more than happy to chuck a few bob in to buy a new domain. How do we contact other members to get a consensus? Why are admins so quiet?

No idea. but a quote from one of the admin on a thread on Fozzers "As a moderator & admin on that forum! I can confirm it is now closed . Just to satisfy queries . Thanks

Janner"

So there you go.

Cant see much point in keeping it going, all the members have moved to FB.

Bugger! I was just about to buy Stationaryengine.com with a view to re-instating when the site became available. Such a shame to discard all those valuable contributions for the sake of a few quid Sad
and disappointing that the admins didn't give anyone a chance to take it on.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

until it becomes available for transfer of 'ownership' and then get a new?
domain name/. Any interest?

HI anyone who can access this site i do not have any computer expertise but i agree with woodsman could we continue to access the site this way and if the site becomes available could someone take it on , do we have any idea of costs involved and how do we contact the members would we go through the membership list and send private e/mails? it would be almost criminal to lose all the accumulated info!!

Ahhh - it all makes sense now - I was away for work - get back and couldn't find the forum - am happy to assist in any way including financially - there are other forums out there - and FB - but I, for one, am not a user of FB... happy to donate financially to keep the domain going - and as many of you have mentioned it would be a crying shame to let all this knowledge go.. it may be in part replicated on other sites but I bet there's some unique references and assistance on each site... and I need all the help I can get Smile

As for Admin for the site - does it need more than an hour a quarter? approve new members as they arrive on email (just to check they are not trying to sell medicine from dubious locations...) and as a website with a ISP hosting the domain it should just run and run...

Let me know how I can help

Will keep in touch with forum motion and see what happens. Would be so much easier if old admins would let us take over Sad

Good Stuff Paul - I'm on the site about once a week now checking for news and searching for answers - considering nobody has really uploaded any new info there is a shed load of good stuff already here if you have the time to search - would be a pity to lose it - I will have to investigate how the entire database/ server / all the posts could be kept somewhere....

Hi Paul and StewartH,i have registered with the other Stationary Engine Forum, but i would much prefer this site and i keep looking in to see what if anything is going on and it seems like bu--er all, i just hope that it becomes available at a affordable price, it would help if admin would let someone else take it on, i would be willing to put a few bob in.
Best Regards,
Keith.
