Back a few weeks ago, it seemed that we had quite a number of new-ish members who became Club Cobra financial supporters because they could see the benefits supporting of this forum and hopefully it would return to good health helped by that support. Well it’s still severely wounded and very often non-functional, so please fix it ….. or maybe just give us our support contributions back?
Please, owner(s)/moderator(s) of this once great site, fix the damn site ……. or sell it off to people here who want to buy it and who do want to fix it so that we can return to enjoying it as we had previously been accustomed to doing.
This will probably get me red tagged and banned again. I’ve been there before.

That msg is what I referred to... been happening for a few weeks now. Started a few days after it came back on line from the last outage. Started off once a day or so now it takes dozens of tries to view unread posts. There is most likely a corruption in the database tables. The ancient forum software isn't a bonus.

Sell? That group has reconsidered. Give away control? Maybe. The state and value of this is the owners would likely have to pay to have someone take it off their hands.

Heck just let a few knowledgeable people have moderator and site control rights and let volunteers fix things.

I doubt those donors feel they are getting their money's worth
