What about making an informal agreement between TFL, AR15, and Bladeforums in the case of unexpected downtime. If one were to go down unexpectedly there would be a post explaining the situation on the other two boards.

TFL and BladeForums.com are on the same server. Anything that takes out either of them (other than maintenance or a screwup) is likely to take down both. AR15.com is always welcome to post status/updates on our site, and I'm sure Rich wouldn't mind if they posted here either.

We'll go a step further. If the AR-15 guys expect to be down for any legnth of time, have them email me. We'll set up a separate AR-15 Forum for the interim and then forward the files when they're back up.

That's what I like about Rich, always willing to go that extra mile.

I don't know anyone on the other two boards. I only post here and lurk at AR15.

I was thinking Rich or someone could post a General thread on TFL telling members to check AR15 if they cannot get on TFL. At AR15 there would be a thread from Rich saying something like..."Spark broke a megahertz chip in the thingy, we'll be back up Monday" and vis-versa here.

If BF is our sister site, AR15.com seems like our brother site. There seems to be a lot of inter-board traffic.

Gotcha, WM. If we go down, I will post it over on AR-15. They're welcome to use TFL for the same purpose.
