What is the purpose of this Topic?

May I suggest that those at the site .. reconfigure their site?
Geeze, My eyes started to glaze over after being there for just a few minuets! :cry:
Sadly the site is going to close next year according to the owner after 14 years.
And yes, the software appears to be equally as old.
We were asked to step in and make a home for some of the last remaining members.

Welcome Right Minds.

TYVM!! This is one of those cases where the spirit is willing (to continue the site) but the software is antiquated. Our esteemed host and his administrative assistant have graciously endeavored to keep it up and running as long as possible but they are candid about the long term - in time it will simply stop working and they do not anticipate investing significant resources in establishing another platform with other software (for various good reasons).

So in the meantime, I have taken the initiative and invited our members to utilize your very generous offer to host an island of refuge should the worst come to pass. At least then we will have a place to reconnoiter to contemplate the future and continue to launch sorties against the enemies of Righteousness!!

Thank you again for your exquisite generosity in responding so fast and with such warmth.

We also have some members who post at Vast Right Wing Conspiracy and some other conservative sites so it is hoped that we will gather the faithful here in some numbers to continue the good fight in the Age of the Cacogens.

Hope you enjoy the site. Having a forum go down is somewhat disconcerting. I have had two go down because loons hijacked them and the newspapers who sponsored them got tired on monitoring and suspending idiots.

Well, not really.  Since I am the owner of that forum, I would kinda know.
 
*  I have no present plan to close the site.
*  Yes, the software is old and clunky, but it still works.  When, and if, I can find satisfactory threaded software, I will update it.  (I don't like flat-format forum software.)
*  I did not ask anyone to create a refuge for our members, although I admire your courtesy in being willing to do that.

My thanks to all of you for your warm welcomes and your courtesies.  You have a great forum here and are entitled to be proud of it.

Take care,

Russ Walden

Thanks for setting the record straight Russ.
If we can be of any assistance, let me know, you have a great forum that's withstood years and deserves to continue.

Yeah, I'm partly at fault for the confusion. Too many balls in the air this week and I lost focus on this project. I was taken by surprise when this feature opened and then had to try to do damage control but that was not overly successful.

Right Minds is still forging ahead and I'm not sure if anyone else is having the sort of usage problems that I am, or will participate here much. If you wanna close out the category nobody would blame you.

Russ was very understanding of my miscue. He has provided a very comfortable dog house to occupy! (just kidding, he ribbed me a little but nothing more painful than evoking some guilt feelings). I think he initially believed that an end-run was attempted but it was really more of a misunderstanding by well-intentioned, honorable people all around.

You folks here have been phenomenally gracious!!

Russ seems like a great guy and very understanding. :cool:
I'm just glad to gear that an anchor of Conservative forums won't be closing, I hate to see any forum that carries our voice be shuttered for any reason.

I'll leave this thread open, just in case some of our members want to support Rightminds.
Good luck to all.
