Wow Grant, you still exist. I thought you were lost in a great big black hole. Nice to hear you again.

I think there are lurkers and the old waves of FsN/FN owners have kinda died off in their excitement/motivation to get on forums.

The new waves probably don't hear about this forum, as much.

When something initiates a new wave of excitement, the motivation to search out forums/info will be renewed (FsN ban!).

IKR. Can't believe it's finally happening! :) AND a new shop!

AND BIGGEST AND BADDEST OF ALL

the thing I've been waiting like 4 years for, the extended bbl and slide extension!

I'm going to have to go buy a MkII and get it worked over by EA.

DNS settings must have been changed again. I cannot access the site from my cell phone. FYI I use tmoble. If I connect to my home network I have no issues, just with the cellular network.

It appears we all agree about bring this place back to life... what is the plan and where do you guys think we should start?

Ok my ideas...

1. Find a way to for the forum to store pictures instead of using photobucket. This will make it easier for everyone who wants to share photos and bla bla bla.
2. We put this forum on social media.... We create a Facebook page?
3. Somewhere when everyone registered, we all entered email addresses? Right? It was so long ago I dont remember but we could send a blast email and let everyone know we are still here and this is what they missed.

It is late, i need to go to bed.... let me know....

Fire begats heat....

Bring something hot that creates an incendiary explosion in interest;

Elections + recent release of the MkII + even more recent release of EA's bbl + EA's soon to be released brass...

and extended slide for the extended bbl...

It won't take much after that for the site to get exponential hits.

All you need is good marketing; particularly on Facebook, linking it back to the forum.

There, Herc, I gave you the formula.

I have been trying to log into this forum for about a month. This is the only time I got my activation e-mail (and yeah, I check my spam). Glad to see everything now working.

Good job! I figured it was just a matter of time, that something was broken and would get fixed someday.
