Old posts have been moved to an archive, this should result
in a significant speed increase in the main forum.

All threads older than 2 months have been moved to
forums.hand
loads.com/archive
this forum is locked for both new
threads and responding to old threads, but can be read.

We had a thread resurrected not too long ago that had posts in it from Stuffit. The archiving should certainly stop that from happening any more.

Hmmm. Guess I will need to copy threads of interest to my drive instead of just bookmarking them. Also, the six month and one year choices on the date range selector should be removed, since they are now meaningless.

Wow! that's a bit harsh.

I'm thankful JohnK, keeps this site online.

I'm also thankful he chose to archive rather than just delete it.

2soon2old,
To my knowledge this is only the second time we have had to take this action on Handloads.com. It has been something we have been talking about doing for awhile. Unfortunately for us we were forced into doing it this time to keep the site running. The forum was getting way to bloated and had to be shrunk to keep things running properly. Nothing was lost except the ability to add to threads older than the last two months.

As Dave(Rigmarol) stated I thank JohnK for keeping this site up and running. In fact now that I am back and working again I think it is about time for another donation to the site to help assure it stays that way.

Yes, it's has been a refreshing place to be for the last 7 years and John certainly needs to be thanked!

One question I have is: how is the archived material accessed?

I should clarify, is there a "button" that accesses the archived information?

Currently Paul the only way I can see to get to the archived material is to use the link John posted above. I think when JohnK gets a chance he may make a button to take us to the archived material but for now all we have is the link.

I went ahead and bookmarked the page, so I don't have to try to remember where it is.

If by grease you mean a donation to help keep the site running you will find a button at the top right that you can click and make a donation. It's simple, easy and painless

Scrat, haven't heard from you for awhile.
Here's a link to my blog, I'm afraid I've not added to it since January 2010.

Can this archived information have a way you can search it? I would not want to start a new thread that is already been posted an answered.
Thanks

RDE,
I think, if I am not mistaken, you might possibly have to have a few more posts under your belt before you can access the Archived section or the Buy, Sell , or Trade section. At the top of page is a Search icon if it is available to you. I might be wrong. Someone else will probably straighten it out for you shortly.

Edit: Well, maybe not. I just done an Archive search without being logged in.

A lot of forums are like that. I do not want to open stupid post just to get my count up. It will come with time.

Thanks for the heads up.

Funzin,
Let me tell you that this group does things just a little bit differently
from the run of the mill forums.

We like to answer questions.

You will rarely see a question answered by "Do a search on the
search engine dude, noob" or something like that.

A good number of us have stuck around here just because of the
friendlier way thing get done around here.

Ask your questions, and you will get answers, politely and in a
friendly, respectable manner.

Give it a try...
