    Assuming this person who would potentially assume the reins, actually exists, and meets your requirements, wouldn't it be very simple to just delete all PMs and emails? People could just re-join if they knew it was there and supply their emails willingly. I am not worried about my email. Hell, I know most of the people here and I would willingly give them my home address if they wanted it. All of the Detroit sports teams have changed hands in our lifetime. They are not exactly the same but that does not mean that we forgot the previous owners who built them and know there are growing pains. The owners did not disband the teams. I still miss the Detroit Vipers. Davidson messed them up by using them as a minor-league team for the Tampa Bay Lightning basically. I do not see why after that phase he did not sell them but instead destroyed them never to be seen again. I know the league folded but several teams joined a new league.

    I am very happy to hear that you are considering letting someone take over. I don't know if anyone will meet the criteria. I am not even sure that anyone will try. I think it is a long shot. This will always be your forum in spirit even if the physical body receives the new heartbeat. I view it as a win-win situation for you. If things turn sour people will leave but will always remember the forum as it was. If somebody keeps up the standard or even improves it in one or two ways everyone will remember whose baby this was. When an artist dies is painings survive him yeah no matter who owns them or displays them The essence of the artist remains no matter how ugly the new frame or placement is. No, this place is not a masterpiece but what place on the internet is? If there is any chance at all please save it.

    For anyone not getting that, Jeremy is Mormon, and their home address hustle is second to none. LOL

    I sent an email yesterday and may send another today or tomorrow.

    I also posted to the Facebook page for the Forum.

    I am open to anything else you feel I should do.

    Nobody knows for sure the true nature of reality. :)

    My question/request is:

    Is anything we can do for Roscoe, money wise or otherwise, to keep this forum going as it is?

    I'm afraid that trying to duplicate it, it's going to be a futile exercise.

    You don't? Sometimes he is cryptic, like pass99.

    In a strange way, they have many things in common. I like them both, though.

    In a way, I'm going to miss both of them, immensely. Life might be cruel..... still goes on....Go Pistons!!!!:)
