I received an email today telling me Network54 - our host - has been acquired by tapatalk. Apparently they are upgrading the layout, features, etc. of the discussion forums. I don't know how much control I will have as far as what the new forum will look like, but I do believe the old messages will be preserved. The only reason I haven't left N54 long ago was the difficulty of saving those old messages.

Thanks to all who posted here over the years, hopefully we can continue to provide a place for valuable discussion. I know the traffic has dropped off over the years but really, I kind of prefer a smaller, quiet place as opposed to one with lots of drama and useless "gadgets" for people to fight about.

Hi Michael,

Thanks for the heads up. The traffic is a little slower but I think a lot of people like myself are still browsing but not always posting. I agree it's best to stay with N54 to preserve the old messages.

Regards,
-Steve

Ok, I was a bit worried that the permissions had been goofed as there had been no posts since the transition. I see at least four separate registered users have posted in the last couple of days so I will presume everything is working correctly. I expect many posters have decamped for Facebook (or some of the other good forums such as the British/Commonwealth collector's forum), though Mr. Zuckerberg's recent privacy issues may change that. Regardless, happy to see some activity here and hopefully people can get some of their questions answered or just share some topical info.

I had to log in to post. I never had to do that before. Oh well, I didn't mind. FYI: I will be winding down my FB from this point on. In fact, I will be trying to limit all of my online activities. Contrary to what the youth say, not everything is online and some things you just can't Google.
