I can't do facebook, so that leaves me out.we would have to start our own forum.--I did find one possible way, (not too costly) check out the Corn picker forum.---the site they use does everything and the per year cost now is half regular price. thanks; sonny

I"m in to help out, donate some money if required.
I dont post much but log in most days.

Some wise words from another forum moderator


There's so much more to running a forum than just starting it.

It takes real nous, money, and in depth knowledge to deal with complications that arise.

'Free' hosting is a waste of time. If you enjoy any success, you'll exceed your size or bandwirth, and it will either get expensive or the plug will be pulled.

Problems arise, and you need to know how to interpret the server logs, so you can go to your ISP and ask for a solution.

I have none of these skills, and if it was my responsibility the forum would have been extinct years ago. aliengravy is the philanthropist who pays, and keeps it all tickety boo.

When our server got hacked, I see him do a 24+ hour stint, going through every file, looking for backdoor code installed by hackers. This is now why we run with no add on's, like Tappatalk. You cannot trust them!

I don't believe the idea is bad, we just need to be informed of the possibilities and potential difficulties.
I am also not tech enough to carry it out I'm sure, at this point I wouldn't have a clue. I think I will ask some questions to my brother however, he is much more into this kind of thing.
There is at least a few of us with the desire to continue on with this one way or another. They say "Where there's a will, there's a way", many of us have proved this time and again with our projects...couldn't this be just another one?

The facebook thing is a way to keep in touch BUT it's near impossible to follow any 1 particular project. I myself have not been getting too much done lately, however I do try to pop in every now and then just to try and keep up.

Hi all, this is sad news but it explains a lot as well.
Moving forward now we have even more of a reason to keep this site going as Tom has suggested.
If anyone finds a way to move this forward please post the details for all to see and help if we can.

Here is a link and copy of one of the pages, it may be possible to gain access to upgrade the board then have control over it.

I can't get a reply from Matts bil, so I think we should pursue to get moving on saving the site. Maybe start with contacting ubb threads, and see what is needed from there!--Any other ideas??
I for one am in for the long haul! Lets tackle it! thanks; sonny

I have a request for help in to the ubb threads, and they said that a rep. would be in contact to talk.--Good or bad, I don't know but they sounded like they will at least go over something with us!

Just heard from Mapper, and it looks like the family would turn MBN over to the members, Still need to contact them and see what they have in mind!---slow progress but making a bit of headway, I think! thanks; sonny

Thanks Sonny, we need to start somewhere.
Just another thought, it appears that Machine Builders is hosted at "Kramerville.net" so not only do we need to sort out access to host the board be we also need a new site to host it, does this make sense?
If we can sort them booth out at the same time we should be OK to continue.

Also she wants to find byer for 2 of Matts unfinished projects.--the art. tractor that's almost done, and c&c machine, so that's where we are at this point! more as it happens! thanks; sonny

Ran across this a few days ago on Tractorbynet about the original MBN run by Matt Cramer . I know there are a lot of people who wondered what happened to that site .
<
Default To all who are members of Machine Builders.net

The web site machinebuilders.net is not being maintained at this time. This is due to Matt the owner and creator of the site passing away last November. Matt was my brother in law and friend. We all miss him very much. He died from complications following heart surgery.
