Re: SoakersForum Site - Stay Tuned....

Dan, thanks for posting the Announcement! For some reason, I don't see it as a highlighted, unread post, so I stumbled onto it by accident.
Here's a link in case others missed it as well: Dan's Announcement

Re: SoakersForum is closing after a decade.

Thanks Offvgo!

Currently, someone has expressed interesting in taking over the forum. Let's see how things play out over this next week. If that happens, it'll be interesting to watch as new life is poured into SoakersForum, or ???. Who knows what is to happen in the near term future.

Re: SoakersForum is closing after a decade.

Tell me more! If someone wants to take it over, and they have the technical expertise to manage a website based on phpbb/mysql, then I'd be happy to talk to them. If necessary, they can take the backup & phpbb code & recreate it on a new isp & we can transfer the domain name to them, or we can reass...

Re: Help, Please

Na, you two would be able to deal with the most complicated, convoluted and constantly changing web site dealing with hundreds of thousands of topics, very few of which really matter to the vast majority of the membership.... Easy! I'll be looking for a decent source as well. Obviously I don't have ...

Re: SoakersForum is closing after a decade.

My apologies for taking the board offline. We had two events where we were blocked by the hosting company for using too much bandwidth. I think I've sufficiently blocked the culprits at the hosting level with a suggestion from Eric. I'll continue to monitor & play Whack-A-Mole (whack-a-hog?) as need...

Likewise.... even if they were able to access the ACP (AdminControlPanel) and look at various members, they cannot see passwords. When I need to change a password for someone, I cannot see their existing password, I can only change it. On website with a login, people should be using a different pass...

Re: SoakersForum is turning 10...

Paul, you sure did! Top photo, and by name to boot. There was an outage yesterday. I believe it was due to the fact I had removed the robots.txt to enable the crawlers & search engines to access the site. However, someone decided to download the entire site using some tools (HTTrack) that caused us ...

Unfortunately, it's a fact of life. I was just looking over many of the posts in the links section (http://www.soakersforum.com/3/viewforum.php?f=25) where we've discussed this issue at length. We've also chatted about the issue in other sections, tho I won't take the time to find and quote those lo...

Yes it has! I'll miss it terribly, and already have mixed emotions. Folks, for your notes: (Bookmarks, favorites, etc) You can bookmark the top of the site on the Waybackmachine, but clicking into forums will take you to older crawls. I have submitted each forum to get it to capture each one. To get...

SoakersForum Site - Stay Tuned....

As of November 2nd, this site will turn 10. It has been fun, but it's time to move on to bigger and better things. Our contribution rate has diminished over the last few years. We are now the skeleton crew keeping the old boat afloat. While the cost is nominal, I've come to the conclusion there is n...

https & SoakersForum

Although not all of SoakersForum is encrypted, you can surf and post via the new https://www.soakersforum.com URL. Over time I'll work on further enhancing the site to ensure it is secure. Independent of site security, at least do the following: Change your passwords fairly frequently. Use a passwor...

Hi Allison, send me a PM with links to your images; I'll experiment with them & will see what I can do. I've encountered problems with those errors as well.

SoakersForum site performance

Hi Fellow Soakers, We've had quite an uptick in visitors lately - so much so that we've occasionally overloaded our server's limits. Some of this load is due to robots and crawlers seeking to index the web, some of it is ... who knows what, and to a lesser extent, it is us, the fellow soakers and so...
