It can be done. WAF admin should provide us the database dump for the "Communications Equipment" section and then we have averything. This can be imported to some other forum software. In worst case scenario if WAF admin does not want to cooperate, it's possible to write a script that goes through all the 51 page we have here and copy all the threads we have there.

In the process we can also repair all the Funksammler's photobucket images that got lost and also create subfolders for different topics what we need but this forum software (or admin) don't want to provide.

But we need to seek a new home fast, this ship is sinking.
Service here is virtually non-existent.

Somebody nearly got the WAF owner to give an explanation: http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/foru...d.php?t=966834

We are waiting with bated breath. How Ironic that the fate of the forum is now the most interesting story on the forum....

regards,

Funksammler

I browsed little bit that group "WWII German Field Comm. and Funkers".

Funksammler, beware, FB is known for the behavior that it forces people to use their real names, sooner or later. It gives you the deadline and then locks your account up, if you don't obey. To unlock you must upload your photo ID.

In that light FB is no different from the Photobucket. So just in case prepare for that.

I do try to support it, communities like this is where future collectors will come from. Also it is more fun following a lively forum which may lack some depth than a high quality forum that is almost dead....

OK. Been there, they locked my account up and sure i didn't upload
them my passport.

But meanwhile look at this. This is opensource alternative to FB and looks quite promising. There's forum possibility included when creating channel. When reading, skip the installation part, there's already lot of servers online.

List of servers.

I never was at FB or any other twitter or whatever! I feel happy by that. I cannot understnd people who join them. They are bad to the bone!
I would not have any problem when with forums the real name is mentioned (as I do so with the forums I join). I would neither have a problem
to show a photograph of myself. When one is far over 75 then it does not matter anymore how one's face looks.

It is a very simple security measure not to use your name and personal data online. Putting aside the evil of social media providers and others, simple criminals can easily put public data to use, it was not long ago that the data required by facebook was all that was needed to set up an bank account. For that simple reason alone I am happy to risk the ire of facebook (and use the "Funksammler" nom de plume there and on all the forums that I use).

The more you share the easier it becomes to guess your passwords or become a victim of identity theft. Once a criminal can link a desirable item found on a forum to a name, it is simple to find your address. Subsequent boasting about your attendance at an event is basically writing an open invitation to get your house raided while you are away.

I simply can not understand that people so liberally share their identities, birthdays, schedules and all sorts of personal data online. But as long as they do, I feel relatively safe in the knowledge that there are far easier targets than me.

regards,

Funksammler

Funksammler's policy is good. Data can always be abused for a bad purpose.
It's also wise to learn from history too.

Admin has spoken for the first time.

Only promises, that's how i see it. Hosting problems can be resolved in a day, if there's a will and desire.

There is also this forum. Everything is in German, but I don't have a problem with that.

Why not creating a stand-alone communications-Forum?

It's not a big deal, just a bit work that has to be done.

If there are a few people out there that are willing to help, I would start such a project! :-)


Best regards,

Stefan

It is a good idea. First we need to compile the requirements to the new forum.
Here all the topics are in one row, pages after pages, new forum should support creating different sections (like directories/folders in computer) so we could organize our information - phone section, radio section, repairing section, info and manual section etc.

If you are willing to lead the project, check the Hubzilla link i posted, this provides free cloud storage and forum option. As i understand, in Germany Hubzilla is quite a popular, lot of (alternative) newsfeed is flowing in Hubzilla.
