    Friends,

    I will post more info as I have it, but this is your early-warning heads-up that PF.com will be closing at the end of this month (July 2017).

    I don't have a precise day it will end, but assume it could be any time after you read this.

    I will put more info in this thread and I will send out at least one more followup email regarding the details.

    See updates below

    I will do my best to respond to any questions you may have in this thread.

    More info re: Fantasy leagues to come.

    Please use the forum private message system (Conversations) to coordinate sharing email or contact info with members you want to maintain contact with.

    Thank you for posting for all of these years.

    -Roscoe

    I don't use TapaTalk, so I can't really help there, although I think @coynejeremy@coynejeremy does and he may be able to assist if you get stuck.

    Not good, not good at all! It is the forum I spend most of my internet time on. Why is it closing?

    It is time for me to retire and move on to other projects. Slippy has been paying the hosting bill the last couple years and when I discussed it with him, he agreed that it was time for both of us to move on.

    When I started this, I was working for my Uncle as an office manager at his manufacturing plant and running a side business selling computer parts from my apartment. Since then, my step father had a massive brain injury, the manufacturing plant closed, my internet business morphed into a different internet business, I moved to the Pacific coast to live with my parents, I had a stroke.

    Life changes.

    That's a bummer :( I know I rarely visit here anymore but this was always my favorite place to go to talk about the Pistons. Good luck with everything! Have you thought about asking the members to chip in on hosting costs to keep it going?

    I do web stuff for a living; if you want me to save a copy of the DB for posterity, or try to keep an archived hosting of this somewhere, let me know.

    I am not able to apply for the private group. I just get a error message saying it's private content when I click the link.

    Thanks buddy. I have it all backed up.

    It's not a money thing. It is a time thing.

    I saw you but I couldn't figure out how to add you. I am working on it so that you, @Mogilny@Mogilny and others can join easily.

    I assume the Eagles have a forum at RealGM, and they probably have an Eagles blog at a Philadelphia Eagles community

    All good things must come to an end ....but they are some that you want to last forever. For me this Great Forum was one of them. But that's life.

    Thanks Roscoe and Good Luck!!!!!!
