The payment plan for the forum was due last night, and we have decided to not renew the plan for the Stromtrooper.net forum. Thank you to the many people who joined and participated.
The initial plan was to create a forum because we get so many email inquiries through the blog, and thought it would be a good place to share the info, and have others share their own info as well.
Tried to make a community that was fresh, less moderated with many more up-to-date features that you would not normally find on a forum. This was a forum that was run & owned by actual members, not some faceless corporation only interested in advertising revenue.
When you read other forums, members there constantly complain about intrusive ads, restrictions on what can be posted, over-moderation and spam, so we thought there had to be a better option.
But it seems that this is what people want and would prefer, and although we gave a better alternative option a shot, decided it was a waste of time.
