    Sporbust is actually keeping his site open a while longer....if I'm correct I think someone made a large donation that helped him pay the bills to keep the site open for a few more months.

    Default respond to srr89

    hello srr89:

    yes you are right: there was a large donation made from a member and instead of closing down now, the donation bought him about 5-6 extra months. and the web space will stay open for at least up to the 6 months but not sure what will happen after that.

    Default this is for you illinois central why is he closing

    hello every body and also to inllinois central:
    here the title of the post " plans on closing forums and web site"

    the reason he is closing the following reasons. he says he is not active in trainz anymore have lost all desire for it. his monthly bill to keep the web site active is another reason. he said he could use that money for something else If read that right. he also stated that the forums may be kept open but it may be scaled back. I will let you know anything else pop up

    This is old news, totally debunked on Franks forum weeks ago. I hesitate to call the OP an out-and-out troll, but it is horribly close. A previous thread on this subject was locked - see http://forums.auran.com/trainz/showt...light=sporbust

    I suspect this thread is headed in the same direction.

    Let's keep the posts constructive please and informed. As far as I know Frank is still here, but if it is time for him to pursue others things, that is his call. Be grateful for the contributions he has made.

    Cheers

    Where is all this coming from? I know some kids pissed him off about what they were doing on his forum. But had no idea this was circling. I noticed some of the posts a really old but I don't trust them dates that automaticly get posted on to replies.
