    NEFF - Final days or not?

    We've been online for quite some time now. 2001 or 2002? That's a long time!

    My host just told me they will be pulling the plug on the server that hosts this site at the end of the month (December).

    We have a few options.
    1. Pull the plug on the site.
    2. Create a Facebook page/group and run the site from there.
    3. Find a new host and let the site run, but keep in mind, I'm paying for it and if I'm paying for it, I'm not so sure it's worth it to keep up for the small handful of people we have here.

    Also, this will take me quite a bit of time because I haven't paid much attention to this software in the past few years therefore, I will have to figure out how to configure it all over again.

    I'm interested in your opinions. I know the site still matters to some of you so before I do anything drastic, speak up!

    To everyone / anyone who stuck around through the good / bad / ugly, Thank You!

    Dennis,

    Its crazy to think this site is nearly 20 years old. A lot of people have met and still fish together to this day as a result of initially meeting/discussing here. I think the FB page option would be a good way to keep things going, and would actually fit better with current trends anyway since its easy to share photos, communicate with other members, etc.

    I agree with JC but also understand the folks that don't use it. Tough call. I come on every now and again and would miss it regardless.

    I'm sure I could get Simms fired up again. I developed a couple good relationships with people on here. Rusty Spinner and I did some work together recently. I thank this forum for that.

    Re: NEFF - Final days or not?

    Is there a use for a website like this anymore? I could always redesign it. I built it once, I'm certain I could rebuild it. Facebook has taken over but I definitely understand that not everyone uses or likes that format.

    Re: NEFF - Final days or not?

    Kinda lost the energy and passion to run this site a long time ago. Even now, I visit once a week! I need to re-motivate myself. I just took a look at the latest software and it looks somewhat promising.

    Re: NEFF - Final days or not?

    My thread is being Hijacked!

    So far, I see a very small handful of people responding. It's nice to see a few of you come out of the woodwork (Seriously). If you have friends that use this site, let them know of our status. The more support, the better off we can be.

    Is there anything any of you would like to see added? Is there something you would like added that you can do yourself? Maybe? Maybe you need help? Feel free to ask.

    Posts attempting to hijack this topic, and make it into a political debate have been split off and merged into an existing more appropriate topic.

    Re: NEFF - Final days or not?

    Keep the chat function. Those that don't like it don't have to use it.

    Simplify the board. Have a section for the North East, and then a section for the rest of the world/ country. Gear and fly swaps can be done in the general forum.

    Less is more.

    Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.

    Re: NEFF - Final days or not?

    Don’t kill it, just fix it.

    Not being able to access the site from a mobile device killed it for me. Not being able to finish trip reports due to picture posting issues got old real fast too.

    less is more if you’re redesigning shit. I vote for killing the chat room too, the board would be more active without it.
