vBulletin may have a migration service where they can help do all the work.
I'm sure some of us would be happy to help with $$ and time.
I concur. Most sites also have a "contributing member" setup, where there are different tiers for different amounts and you get a snazzy title that goes above your normal one for your annual contribution. I have time but have no idea what I am doing when it comes to computers which is why I never activated my vBulletin. IDK, could they hook mine and his together to give it more space? Like I said, I have no idea, LOL. I'd be glad to chip in monetarily though.

It is the software that operates this website. vBulletin forums all look pretty much the same. There are some different filters, but essentially, they are recognizable. If you ever log onto a forum that is not vBulletin, you'll be hard pressed to navigate it.

I really think it's either been hijacked, or it's so unstable that it's just bogging down and freezing, like Windoze 10. Either way, a lot of people are going to stop logging in if it's not rectified soon.

Maybe it's operating on Dominion's servers...

I alerted Mediahound to the downtime and he got back to me. He's working on some updates for the site. I will keep him posted when it goes down from now on.

Thanks for the explanation! I have never heard of vBulletin in my life!

It's dominion software, and they are secretly changing your bananabucks to someone else, or they are just disappearing.
