Yup. But I don't claim full authority.  This group has been together a while and that's why it's here.  We're gonna see how crowd management works.

Good Luck.

The Den's been around since the CNNSI days and is currently here, scout.com and at a private board called "The Alamo". I'm the only one posting there in honor of the late owner, Winged Helmet.

Yo.

Looks like it's high time to have everyone move over here from Scout, eh?

One more full day and it seems to me the place is toast.

'morn, folks.

Scout indicated the 16th.  I 'think' that is when they start their cut-over, but it doesn't necessarily mean that's the absolute time it's gone, in my understanding... but it means it has started and it will happen soon thereafter... like... hours or days at the most, after.  After they make the cutover, servers all over the planet will have to propagate to the new IP (pointing the domain to the right server).  I've seen that take a few minutes, and i've seen it take a few days. 

all I know for sure is that place is toast, as you said.  it'll be on borrowed time after Saturday.

Scout was bought out of bankruptcy by CBSInteractive- aka 24/7 Sports in late January.  The 'debtors server' agreement expired 30 June, and 24/7 announced their plans to collect all outlying webpages and put them under the same format around May.  This 'format' will effectively eliminate the boards we're familiar with on Scout, and will look+operate as the current 24/7 boards do... the content from Scout will be abandoned, and the rules which regulate the board will be altered to 24/7's agreements. 

we don't know how deep into Scout 24/7 will dive- they may cut-over every board, or they may cut-over only those which produce content (as in publish).  We just don't know, and they won't share (because i don't think they know either, truth be told).

that's pretty much it in a nutshell.  we've made a landing spot- and i intend to maintain it regardless of what some corporation does with their own property- this place is OUR property, and because of which we can do what we want to with it, and driven by the core group of posters/people we know.

Wow. Cool.

I have a site we can get to as well for whatever reason. A poster named Winged Helmet, from the late 90s at CNNSI, had his own board since about 2007-ish. He passed away 3 years ago but his son took over his business and maintains the box that "The Alamo" is on. His son keeps it up in his father's memory and I post the occasional "Morning All" because I can. I have admin rights.
