Jen is fine though, her dog died. Iím saddened by the loss and love of caring pets such as dogs are, however it seems thatís the only thing about the Falfiles that she was interested in when she came back to visit and that, was to tell us that her dog died.

Here is some data:
  1. I went to https://falfiles.com/forums/payments.php and saw this:
    Contributor June 16, 2019 June 16, 2021
  2. I selected Contributor and paid for another year through paypal.
    Contributor June 16, 2019 June 16, 2022
Would you like to try to replicate what I did, just picking the lowly contributor and paypal to see if that works for you? It would be a cheap ($10) experiment. If you want I can do another year, this time with credit card.

Just trying to see if the problem follows your account, the sponsorship level, or payment method.

Send a PM to W.E.G.. Somehow he takes care of these even though he says he doesn't handle money because that is JEN's realm.

Or I could buy FF and delegate such things to WEG or whoever and make it almost immediate.

I'm serious. Had a great year. Going to dump some money into my mutual funds next week when the market hits bottom, but I'd rather buy FF.

I don't have a hundredth of her IT skill, but I can hire those who do.

FF could be a gold mine if maintained and invested. Still one of the largest focused gun websites.

Mark youíve done an admirable job with your site. I send info seekers there all the time. Remember your photography thread? Consider replicating it there?

Sorry to go OT.

I plan on it - I have dozens of blogs I have put on here and on FB that I'm going to redo on my website. But there is something wrong with the site structure and my designer is no longer available. It's a resource hog - using way more server resources than it should for the size and amount of traffic.

I have a guy working on it now in trade for some FAL work, and we have a mirror site set up that we can screw with - pruning anything not critical. Once we figure out what's bogging it down, I can upload more stuff - all my reviews, and stuff like that.

If Jen sells me the FF, I'd move FF to the Cognecy servers in Texas - great support.

Your site is a wealth of great info Mark,,,I hope you dont trim it down too much.
If you can,,maybe give an idea of what you plan on eliminating ?
I know Ive downloaded the AR70 build section, but there are others I'd like to copy if their to go away...

Please remember guys.

I'm the bouncer, not the banker.

I do this thing here solely as a volunteer effort for the purpose of...

What the hell IS the purpose?
I dunno, maybe to support all of youse

I handle no aspect of FAL Files money.
Only Jen handles that.

She has a couple facebook accounts.
Maybe you can track her down there if PM's here are not effective.

no no - I'm not deleting any content - I'm expanding content. There is something wrong on the back-end we're trying to track down.

"cutting stuff" means unused add-ons and widgets we tried. Maybe streamlining the format (not content)

Went through a dozen different image sliders/carousels that we didn't use and they are still there - supposed to be deactivated, but something is making it use 10x the bandwidth it is supposed to for the amount of traffic.

So no need to "save" any images right now.

I suspect my original designer subbed out some of the scrip[ting to his $5/hr associates oversees and while their components work great, they conflict with each other and with WP updates.

W.E.G. I think besides the issues that Mark points out, you nor other mod, don’t need to handle money per se’, more a matter of confirmation of payment then, flick the switch or something.

I appreciate all your efforts as well as the other mods too. I know, that’s kind of a stretch...

��

In the for what it’s worth category, I did track down a Facebook page that had a Falfiles page but it all seems to be a cricket atmosphere so I left a iMessage and we will see which we probably won’t.

I suppose that DB is helpful at times, but usually yovinny just sends me a text to tell me I am a "dick with ears"
