Damn, I miss it.

Has anyone been in contact with Edd lately on how he's progressing?

Hope the forum isn't lost. Crying or Very sad

I think this may be the end of the SWF - it happened before and Edd had to start again. His interest has dropped off a lot since then and he may not think it worth the hassle

It is a shame that so much resource looks like its going to be lost i was speaking to Shawn in Chat yesterday and he was really glad he had copied over his POTF Coin Reference Thread from SWF to TIG.

I had read Edd's messages that he put up prior to the site going down it seems he had been shouldering all the costs himself as he had tried to place google Ad's on the site to create some additional revenue. I know that he sold up / cashed out over a year ago and didn't post often so i wouldn't image him wanting to pump his cash into the site indefinably especially as he seemed to have no desire to start collecting again.

From his post is seems that the hosting company had pulled plug without giving him enough warning to retrieve vital files.

To echo what Tim said all vintage collectors are welcome here and of course RS so if anyone is in contact with any lads from SWF who don't know about this site feel free to drop them an invite and they'll all receive a warm welcome Smile

Cheers Jay

Sad to see the site gone... I have checked several times but the last couple of days don't show much hope of a return. Sad

While TIG takes up more of my time now and I was visiting SWF less and less it is still sad to see all that information lost that was posted over the years, there were some very informative posts there and lots of fun memories.

Perhaps Edd will solve the issue but as has been said already, his interest with SW is not what it once was and I do believe this could well be the end for SWF.

I know a similar thing happened on the original SWF and all the information was lost, if its happened a second time I can't see many people going back to start all over again.

If SWF really dies I think we should start a SWF remembrance thread or section on here.

I hope Edd manages to sort it out.

It has been quite on there recently but I still checked in every day.

It was my first forum and I have had some great times on there.

I must admit I too had a lot of fun on SWFUK- some memorable threads include: browny on Lady gaga, Bollux's smurf suit, the amazing Palitoy runs, John A actually showing off some of his collection, TFB's classy ladies Shocked and the twits that used to try and sell modern for $1000s. I wonder how people are going with trades/sales that were not completed? I don't miss my urine saber that I only just got. I'm sure glad we have TIG Very Happy

It's crazy isn't it , and knowing most of us got to know each other there , I guess most of the members from swf uk aremembers on rs , so incase of ongoing deals that should be oke , hopefully they will find there way Over here. As IMO rs isn't so much sociall as it is educational , luckely we got this place indeed , Btw I hear edd was posting about this on rs but I couldent findthe thread , if so it would be cool if somone could. Get me a link or just directions where to look

Don't think we quite need a remembrance section lol but it was a fun forum for a while, equally it had its downsides - lack of admins at times (Not going to mention the time we all got banned! lol)

If it stays up, I think I will still pop back over to say hi and post from time to time but if its not meant to be and its down for good then TIG is (I hope) seen as a friendly place for any members who want to sign up, I mean come on if you like a forum without so much BS and you are a fan of the SWF forum + members, the majority of them are here already lol

No headstone needed here Smile We can pay our respects by continuing to be an awesome bunch of dudes ! Very Happy
