ML, I believe she switched the group to private or hidden because someone, possibly a past troll from the Swamp, was causing an issue a couple of weeks ago. I’m sure if you send Pauline a PM on FB, she will send you an invite to join the page. I have the T&C group I admin set up the same way, for basically the same reason. Unfortunately age doesn’t equal maturity in some people.

So did I. I could go to the page. Not much activity there. I guess if we all participate that page can become much more active!

Count me in for whatever decision is made or has to be made.

I have not been posting as regularly as I used to for probably the past year. A lot is going on in our lives but I do check frequently.

Having made so many friends and connections in the Swamp, I would not want to lose the friendships from here.

I am friends with a few on FB but not in that particular private group mentioned. If that is the way we must go kindly send me an invite.

The Aruba Q&A part of this will be missed greatly as it is a good source of info.

Happy that Richard had the foresight to create the Swamp for all unrelated Aruba discussions that created a friendship area for us.

Hoping there is some way Richard can get the care he needs to help him and Karen deal with this.

I don't post much, but I read daily and count you all as friends.

I have reached out to mods and members of a guitar forum I have belonged to since 2001, as they run on the same Vbulletin platform as this BB. Some really smart folks over there that may have some ideas as to how we can keep this place going until Richard fully recovers....and I pray he will.

I'll keep you posted as I learn more.

Danno


I did the same with the admin of another forum.

Ronnie, didn't you set up a back up forum when we were in a time-out a few years ago? Do you remember how you did it?

Here's a link to bulletin board software which seems to be the platform we run on.

Maybe if I fire up my old computer....I’ll need a rainy day :wink:

Here is what I found for the one Ronnie created before.

https://www.tapatalk.com/error?error=gr ... JvZA%3D%3D

I am willing to try to start a page but would need help and I am also willing to pitch in $
Anyone up for the challenge?
We'd need to learn about protecting it above all else.

Only if needed and I certainly hope it is not.

Count me in....I looked in my password book and had my user and PW but didn't write the URL site down when we had that temporary SWAMP.

It would be a shame to lose this site altogether as the Q&A Aruba area is a good one.

I am sure it is a good amount of work to keep this going and advertisers etc to pay for the cost to maintain this site as is.

lindaspooky, I'd appreciate an invite.
I try to keep up with technology, but I'm overwhelmed. My little part-time job keeps changing hardware and software. This week, it is closed with possible Covid complications. I try to keep up...with problems.

Yes, "2020 Sure has been cruel." I've been venting with a friend in Canada...and I apologized.
