You’re not being locked out- what is happening is the bill isn’t being paid.

We could start a new forum with a similar name, though we might lose a lot of that accumulated information.

I think that information was cached and maybe gone now.

I talked to Mark H. today and he’s trying to obtain the domain. Hopefully that means none of the information is lost. I don’t really know how that works though. Would be a shame to lose all of that.

There's the domain name and there's the hosting service that has the saved data. I called the hosting service (Hostgator) today. They told me when the domain name disappears they will let the information lapse from their servers after "about" a month.

If the info is lost and the domain name can't be purchased for a reasonable price, I'm thinking of starting a new forum just for the sake of stability. The site has gone down several times in the past few years because the hosting and domain name fees weren't paid.

A possible problem with using the same domain name - scavengers watch for popular domain name expirations and they buy them. Then when you want to buy the name, they want big bucks. It happened to me once when I let a domain name expire and I paid around $400 to get it back.

Yeah, Mark “m in sc” Hasse is trying to wrangle Matty and purchase the domain name.

Was a strong forum, and even though I haven’t had an aircooled RD I’m over a decade I found a lot of useful information there.

Good dudes, good forum, let’s help it live on.
