    We purchase laptop computers and many components for greater than scrap value. We offer a shipping reimbursement program.replies

    One of the reasons I always recommend having the E-Mail addresses or phone numbers of the buyers you work for- you never know when the site hamster decides he wants to take a little nap

    Who is the administrator and should more people be added?
    https://www.facebook.com/scrapmetalforum is the FB site
    Should we start a thread with members e-mail addy's on it so we can stay in touch?
    Should we start another forum site so we can stay in touch if this site goes away?

    A great deal of insight, knowledge, and entertainment has been provided by the forum. I do not consider it jumping ship if another forum was created and I decided to join, it does not mean I have to part ways with this one until they part ways with us.
    Give back more to this world than we take.

    If people share this thought, it is very easy to spin one up.... I have experience creating web applications that are made for scalability and reliability in AWS.... and I already own the domain name scrapmetal.life

    so..... perhaps. perhaps Ill cook something up again

    I was not aware of your efforts in the past, but given the present situation would be willing to help in any way possible.

    Same deal with t00nces2 new ProBoard forum, plenty of guest views but no new members signing up, I've submitted a couple of threads on the new forum eventfully the web spider will crawl the pages for the search engines.

    kss with your previous experience the first thing i would have done would have asked you to become a moderator and even given you admin privileges to help organize the site, as it is now, looks like t00nces2 is going to try and operate the site as a one man show.

    Without team participation the new site will have a very short life span.

    Kid. Dude. Man. Bro. Cuz. Pal. Buddy..... I am shooting from the hip, here. Anyone knows anything and is willing to give a hand, all you have to do is ask..... Well, then I actually have to figure out how to do it.

    No one is going to ask, you'll have to recruit your staff or have forum members make suggestions.

    Not necessarily in order.

    I messaged the moderator/admin and said so on here in posts that I would be willing to help try and keep the site up or make it more reliable fo' free.... I didnt need admin access and wouldn't expect them or anyone to just hand over credentials or admin rights to a stranger on the internet (me).... but I could have at least advised or helped in some manner im sure, but never heard anything

    That was over a year ago though, in the time since ive gotten much more busy at my day job, and at my scrapping job, so wouldnt have nearly as much time as then but would still be willing to help where possible

    Your first and only post on the new forum, a Literary Work of Art: I felt there was no need to reply as your posted message speaks volumes of the author.

    This is the second time in one day you have gone out of your way to provoke me. You may get away with it on this forum which for the past several years has runs on autopilot.

    A moderated forum would have some order.
