Hello everyone. Sorry about the delay in getting back online with the forum. We had a major hardware failure on the server running this forum that killed everything, including our backup copy of the old forum.

This seemed like as good of a time as any to switch to a new version of the forum software. The only downside is that each of you will need to re-register. This will only take a minute of your time. Please click on the "register" link at the top of each page for registration instructions.

I have also added two new forums for specific sale lists per the recent requests. Let's please keep the "8mm Forum" to topics specifically regarding 8mm gauge films, but feel free to cross post your 16mm or 35mm films and equipment for sale or trade in the other forums. If there is a continual interest in 16mm, I will open up a forum for that, but for the time being this will probably suffice. [Smile]

Lots of people not registering their names exactly. All lowercase and all uppercase registrations are not being accepted. Please read the registration page carefully and re-submit.

Brad,
I'd like to add my thanks and join the growing list of grateful collectors who are thrilled that the forum didn't disappear for good. The new look is pretty stylish, befitting the sophisticated chic elegance of the forum's members.

I think there's room for just one more film.....

Hello everyone!

I too am glad the forums' back, Thanks Brad! I think Douglas put it very well, especially the bit about us being chic and sophisticated. How true!

Looking forward to chatting with you all again.

Thanks for that Paul. I'm sure like me Joe and all the other users have probably found it all very quiet without the forum and it's usual banter. I tried out some of the other forums but none of them were as good as this forum was.
Well the numbers are growing again so it looks like Brads forum is well on the way to a quick recovery.

Kevin. [Cool]

Some glitches in the registrations have now been fixed (I think). If you are being denied access, drop me an email. (Remember to specify that this is for the 8mm forum!)

This is explained on the registration page, but I will repeat it here for those who are skimming.

bob johnson

would not be an acceptable registered name.

Bob Johnson

would be acceptable.
