    might be a phishing attempt

    Is this a scam, or legit?

    We have not heard anything from regarding this, so I would hold off until an official announcement has been made.

    That's fine. I was just wondering why I got this because I could have sworn this was not being done anymore.

    Just got my email notification today. The way I remember things was if you donated on a recurring or automatic payment plan via PayPal.........THAT was going to be discontinued BECAUSE the former recipient no longer exists. Payments must go to the NEW ownership. The forum donation page that comes up via the link provided in the emails seems legit.
    Having said all of that, I feel like making other related comments about continuing my paid forum membership. Even without paid membership, this site's allowed PMs far exceeds just about any forum out there. Valuable information. While I wasn't exactly a newbie to the AK world when I joined this forum, I was expanding quite a bit and looking for information. This forum was THE best resource at the time and it remains to be a very valuable source for the new AND experienced owners, builders, collectors, historians, and many others. While I don't buy, sell, and trade a vast amount of items, this forum has been very helpful in those times. I got into the forum basically for information and discussion. Just here lately I feel the forum as a whole is about 90% marketplace every time I log in. Sometimes I'll scroll down the whole front page of active topics and only find one or two actual discussion threads. This is not a rant.......merely an observation. Whether or not this is a seasonal thing.....a temporary thing.....or an ongoing thing does not matter. I just don't recall it being like this same time last year. I feel a deep sense of gratitude toward many of the members here, but my forum donation would not be going to support them in any way. Since the new ownership of the forum, there have been numerous site issues to deal with as well. Again.......not a rant.....just observations. I know some or most of those issues appear to be solved in a timely manner, but the previous site management didn't seem to have as many issues. I'm still pretty much a newbie compared to a lot of members here. Over a year is hardly established although seasoned a bit. This forum is generally respectful to all, even tempered, helpful, and understanding. Many other forums seem to rely on turmoil, bashing, political talk, volatile discussions and the like. The traditional yearly Secret Santa is just fun and totally awesome to be a part of. I don't know of any other forums that do something like that. This one is community oriented, and no matter what our own endeavors are......we seem to be able to cross boundaries and the experts get right in their with the novices. New ideas hatch out all of the time. The mods here deserve a pat on the back even though their workload seems rather light here compared to other sites. I do figure this community/forum to be somewhat self policing and maintaining higher standards and ethics. I haven't lost interest here, it's just that a year ago....hell.....up until about six months ago........I would have said this forum is awesome. Now........I can still honestly say that this is a great forum. I'm not sure how much of a difference there is in 'awesome' and 'great'.....but it does identify a change. These are just my personal opinions, but I will be "holding off" for a while on my decision to make a forum donation again for another year.
    Just sayin
    I will more than likely continue to post some of my half page full musings for your reading enjoyment from time to time.

    My bad. I never actually know until I post it and then look back once it's done. It's a small window while I'm typing.
    On a side note (talking term papers).......my ol' lady keeps telling me I should go back to school.....take some online courses. After hearing her complain about this and/or that each and every semester.....I'm not so sure. Then again, easy for her to say with three master's degrees and plenty of BS, DBAs and whatever. One would never go into a doctor's office or a dentist's office or lawyer's office or any other office and see more plaques on the wall than she has in her office.
    What can I say? I get my taxes done for free!
    Thanks Richard (I think).
