Sure me too. I'd wager a great number of us have other Forums on the side. Nothing to be ashamed about is it? :)
Better Forums than girlfriends as my wife says!! :lol:
Speak of the dvil too as I see Dan is in with us now too.

Adam, can you be more specific? I think probably alot of us fall into that category in some way or another. If there are specific members or knowledgable people you would like to see here, we can contact them and see if they might participate more here or perhaps there is a reason they don't participate here that we can address. You can PM me if you wish.Battalion Colours wrote:mk1rceme wrote:I am guilty of posting on other forums...just depends what I'm posting about.

Dale, I'm not speaking of forum members who post on WW I/WW II US or German militaria forums; but forum members who post Canadian material on the CEF Research and the British Badge forums. When I'm looking for information on certain Canadian badges and insignia, I go to the British Badge forum. I wish we could get them to share their knowledge with this forum.

Thanks for your feedback on the forum! The photo hosting has been an issue for us from the bbeginning and we recognize its not user friendly at all. I can try and walk you through the process here when I'm not at work or you can use a photo hosting site. I use imagepost(I think that's the name) it allows you to upload and post multiple photos all at once.
When this forum was set up we used the free version of the software and this is the upload system that came with it. We are locked in for a certain number of years unfortunately but that time is coming to an end soon. Dale and I have discussed changing forum software to make the forum more user friendly, there will be changes coming I can tell you that, just don't know the timeline yet.
Thanks to everyone for your participation in the forum, without that it is nothing and keep the feedback coming!
First of all, remember that the transfer of domains purchased through forumotion is an operation that can be done only in exceptional circumstances and case by case.
Domains purchased via forumotion are specially dedicated to forumotion forums and nothing else. The outgoing transfer isn't a right but a concession that we offers.
Otherwise, it is possible that in some cases, the outgoing transfer can not succeed for one reason or another, we disclaim all liability in this case as soon as you are warned that the system is not designed to handle these outgoing transfers .
Before making a transfer request,please verify that your domain is eligible for transfer.
Also, forwarding transfered domain name to your forum may have many inconveniences:
It may creates duplicate content, which cancel your referencing. Loss of the SEO also
Loss of rediretion on the base URL of your forum
Loss of Custom email boxes
Despite this, if you want to transfer your domain to another register, the procedure depends on the nature of your domain name:
1. if the domain name has been offered by Forumotion: in this case, the domain is transferable within 30 days prior its expiration. In the case where the offered domain name was renewed for free, the transfer can be done only within 30 days prior its expiration. If this renewal was fee, so the domain is transferable after the 90 days following its renewal and not before.
2. if the domain was bought by the user via credits: in this case, the domain is transferable only after a delay of 90 days since the date of its purchase. In the case where the domain name is fee but had benefit of a free renewal offered by Forumotion, the transfer is then possible after a delay of 180 days (6 months) since its renewal. If this renewal was fee, the delay falls to 90 days.
When you fill all these conditions, send a PM to Leeloo with request (or to staff member with request forward it to Leeloo):
1. Domain name to transfer
2. Name + first name + address + email you provided when you purchased your domain name
3. Base URL of the forum
4. Founder email address of the forum
5. URL of the thread about your request, if you have opened one
Upon receipt and validation of this informations, Forumotion dissociate your alliance forum/domain. Since then, your forum will not be available at your domain anymore, but will go on to operate normally and without any loss (notice that you lose the personal email boxes attached to the removed domain) in its URL base.
You will then receive the transfert code by email (AuthCode = this is a letters and numbers code that we send by email on the email address given by the domain name's administrator and not the founder email address of the forum! It has to be provided to your new registrar to achieve the transfer process) and you'll have 72 hours to achieve the transfer process.
Important: Once initiated, this process can't be stopped or you will lose the domain. So, before asking for a domain outgoing transfer, prepare everything in advance and be sure of what you do. All this process remains subjects to an approval.
Thank you Very Happy
