DO NOT START NEW MARKETPLACE THREADS - THIS BOARD CLOSES SOON™

Post by nalioth »

You guys starting new threads here are gonna be shit outta luck when the old board gets turned back on in a few days.


Guys - if you're buying stuff from here, you'd better be writing everything down, because this forum is temporary

I am also becoming a contributor once the new site gets up and running. It’s amazing what our admins do for us.

You should be proud most folks are using the thread prefixes all on their own nails ;)

I will lock down new posts to this forum once the main board is back up. That will allow anyone with pending transactions to finish them here.

As always folks, caveat emptor - get references and don't use PayPal F&F or similar payment services that don't have buyer protections. Because there is no easy way to verify who is who, please proceed with caution. It is best to hold off until we are back to normal if at all possible.

The old content will be available when it's available (shouldn't be more than a few days)

When it is, all your settings & posts will be waiting for you.

A "few" days hath past. Not one to make waves, but looking forward to next stimulus package before a loaf of bread costs $10.
My bad? Kinda like things here. A bit more low key and less stress. SkyNet might find a cool project during downtime. I've learned to enjoy downtime myself. You know, slow down a bit, interact more. Kinda like the sheriff that might soon be out of a job. :)

In the end..................nobody listens anyway. That's why the corona is spreading like wildfire! Take cover. Or cover yourself as the case may be.

LOL

Quick update posted. AK Files is expected to be back online sometime this weekend. I will likely open the forum to contributors / vendors first so not everyone slams it at the same time. (no, you can't upgrade now to get early access.. that's not how this works!)

FAL Files I need to pull the server backups in order to recover attachments. I am also going to try to restore the OLD board (think 1998-2008ish era) from the old server as a read-only archive. The old board restoration won't affect us getting back online. The only hold up there is restoring from backups as I may have to start the import all over.

Well, I didn't get an email about this. Obviously not on the list. Can't say I actually want to be on any lists. Can't keep up here like the actual AKFiles. I still get it you have to play hall monitor and one of these days it's likely you won't have to convey what "the boss says", but rather you be telling the story.
It's still fun to see you spin your wheels. Now I'm kinda missing the book of the month club even though I know you're involved with tech now. What? Security and privacy on phones or some such?
You're still a wealth of good info. Plenty of times you miss the mark however. If you weren't so special, nobody would ever give you any shit and thereby you'd likely go off to play in your back yard sandbox one evening and not come in for dinner.

Hey Ram-A-Thorn, you didn't make the "A" list because of that damn pic next to your screenname. Pig Soooooie is only words you understand and I am sure Nails ain't a fan of pig shit.....HAHA Good ole Arkansaw, only place where AK/FAL's are still looked at as old crappy military weapons that no one uses anymore. But AR's are the right hand of God! Bored without AKfiles so just busting some balls.

When this board disappears, no whining about "lost Marketplace threads" or ". . . but muh Marketplace deal on the temp board" will be acknowledged.

Please define “soon.” I guess it’s a bad sign when even the updates stop.
