BlackPowderSmoke migration
« on: August 14, 2019, 10:15:00 AM »
The migration of this forum and the rest of the websites is about to begin. Our new hosting company is handling the transfer, so I do not know the cut off point.
Once the migration begins, any posts will be lost. We lost almost 2 days posting on the 1858 forum.
Uploaded images and avatars may not display afterwards. If this happens, I will likely be able to resolve it, but it is a time consuming process. First in line for this type of restoration is 1858 forum.
I will post here that it is safe to post without fear of loss once the transfer is complete. It will be in about 24 hours. Current time is 1:15 pm EST.

 I have just been informed by tech support that they are about to begin. Any posting on Colt Country will likely be lost. I will post notifications  when it is done.

It truly broke my heart. It was like losing Smokin Gun again. While I was posting the forwarding page to his forum, I could only think of when he and I were setting up the forum.
