    Completely get that. That's why if someone had the ambition to start a new site it should be from the ground up. I think posters here would join if the new admin adhered to standards you set when this place opened.

    This was never a huge forum but was always great. Free software is available that would suit the needs of a forum this size Create a free forum | FORUMOTION

    For anyone wanting to take on the challenge, I could put you in touch with admins that have successfully used the software, to help answer any questions you might have about rolling out a new place and catherding maintaining a quality site.

    Murph from the DetNews reached out to me by email to remind that some of the DetNews guys have been running a forum on Forumotion. It is linked in the first post in this thread (PistonsTalk).

    Hidden in a private forum.

    This decision was not driven by the Pistons' success or lack thereof.

    Maybe 1 more week.

    I thought you sold this bulletin ?
    or did you just lease controlling rights ?

    I own the software outright. Never ever lease software if you can avoid it. You don't "own" anything then.

    I may sell the license later, but that's not a priority for me. Getting as many of my people out and to FB (or another forum) is my only priority right now.

    It probably wouldn't be terribly difficult to write some SQL queries to clean out all PMs, IPs, etc., but then you still have a giant list of email addresses, and I can understand not wanting to turn that over. Better to start fresh.

    That being said, if you want to archive this, export posts, or need any help, I am sure I could offer assistance and wouldn't require any access to the data whatsoever.

    Once the Pistons took a downturn and my life got busier I didn't come back here much...mainly because the team was never exciting enough again to put in a ton of analysis and thought. I've still had my season tickets for 12 years and have followed the team as closely as ever, but posting game recaps for 30-win seasons just wasn't my idea of fun. I'll probably join the FB group and check in there from time-to-time though.

    I use my real name on FB. I wouldn't want to create another account with an alias.

    Nice to see someone who likes to play tennis.

    Thanks for the response.

    Also good to see your concern about personal data safety.

    Did he ever link to this article? I did, countless times, because I liked the quotes from that article. I liked how he liked assists. I like big man assists.

    And I like how he wanted to be like Garnett.

    That was a parody account where I mocked how bad Darko was.
