Don't consider it a loss, consider it a fresh start.

At least most of the old folks are back and the database is growing each day.
I haven't had many questions that haven't been answered on this forum.

I learned to live with the loss. IT really sucks...

I don't understand why the prior owner would give everyone such a hard time.

Hey it's me stg2ahn!!!
I was on haitus because of my move. I thought the forum was gone.

Sorry to hear about your troubles. I am glad that everyone is back and things are getting back inorder.

I don't understand why the prior owner would give everyone such a hard time.
But that isn't my business. No point in complaining about the lost info, what's done is done.

No doubt we can rebuilt this forum and I am grateful that the new owner(s) see potential in this forum.

I agree, I like some are old time members going back 4-5 years. I was really into it when I first started years ago and seen a bunch of little changes as the years went on, then my log ons were less frequent as a wealth of information and clutter surfaced, I actually got tired of hearing "That was already discussed about, do a search on it", but now having a clean slate with updated and correct information will be even better, and most people would be more willing to answer your questions if you have any. I've already noticed myself being more involved than I have been in years. It's like Christmas and I have a new toy :clap:

Horse manure.
I saw all the posts, Fuzzy, can you do this? Sure. Justin, can you do this? Gotcha. Can you do this? Back and forth.
I felt like i was a spectator at a tennis match.
If anybody WATCHED, it was me! :D

Wolly-
That's exactly why the decision was made to go straight in to a brand new forum rather than try to raise the old one from the ashes.
And most of the thanks goes to Fuzzy for his tireless efforts in getting this new home built for us. And to Justin for doing what needed to be done...I dunno if either of them slept until the doors were opened.
It may be new, but with the core members here, and new ones joining daily, and old ones straggling in with them, the new forum will overshadow the old one and before we know it, the old vBulletin forum will be a distant memory.
But just as before, it's the members that really make it what it is. A home.

Okay...enough of the mushy stuff. Back to work. :guns:

My sense on loss of value...

I purchased a five seven and a ps90 at a gunshow about a month after I got home from a deployment. I had nothing but money burning a hole in my pocket and had NO IDEA what I had actually purchased (I know, I know...). All I knew was that they looked cool, I didn't have anything like them, and I wanted them.

I got home and one of the first places I found was the old forum. I learned more about what I had just bought in ten minutes than I could have by looking at the FN website all day. I registered, posted, and within about ten minutes got blasted for not using the search function properly.

But it didn't matter, because there were enough people who were there who took time to ANSWER me and were very helpful. This is the first and only forum in which I have participated for that very reason. And even though the extensive history of posts isn't here at the moment, I have no doubt that if I were in that same position and asked the same questions, they would be answered by friendly fellow firearms enthusiasts quickly.

There is no loss of value. The members are here. I have absolutely NO DOUBT that within months this forum will have a searchable knowledge base based upon new posts that will easily eclipse any other FN product oriented forum. And before that happens, anyone will be able to inquire and their questions will be answered. In a way, it may be a blessing in disguise -- all of the countless threads consisting of "use the search function, jackass" and flames from certain banned members won't be here.

For those reasons I will continue to be a paid member. My hat's off to the admins for keeping this thing rolling.

Only somewhat, the last archive they have is from Feb 06, 2008. A LOT of new information has been posted since then. But this definitely help bringing back older discussions.

Thanks!
