    Friendly Forum

    SeabeeRon wanted me to let everyone know that they "had a crash" over at FMDF. So if anyone was wondering why the Friendly Metal Detecting Forum is unavailable, that's why.

    Thanks Tony for sharing this!

    Vlad & Carol, the owners of Friendly Metal Detecting Forum think it could be a couple of weeks before they can rebuild everything.
    They are trying to save as much data as they can so as little as possible is lost.
    Thank you for your patience!

    Wow, that sounds bad!

    Certainly everyone is welcome to post here until they get it fixed.

    Appreciate that Tony!

    Vlad may have found a quicker fix.

    Yeah, It's a whole new look! Takes some getting used to, but I am liking it better the more I use it

    Vlad went from the vBulletin platform to one called XenForo. As I understand it I guess one of the lead guys at vB left there and started XenForo.

    The Friendly forum seems to be down again and has been since at least yesterday. I'm not sure how long it has been down. It says "Host Error".

    EDIT: It's back up now.
