Why do you have to stay BAM-ers?

New forum, new names. Not everyone who will come here will have been one and to say i'm a BAM-er may appear a little exclusionary. That might put a whole lot of people off wanting to come here as they don't feel welcome in the same way. ;)

I think a new title in the spirit of a new forum would be cool.

Vintage Rocker . . .
then there's a Modern Jazzer . . . (TGP)
Nu Metaller, Eurodancer, Pop Locker . . . Dub Stepper . . .
But I think I'd best go with Old Bluezer

However regardless of which circle . . . one must remember that VR really helped out those from the BAM fall out, and a lot of people in this place are a result of the cohesiveness VR provided.

BaM is in the process of becoming an organ donor. It is impractical and illogical to try and resuscitate the corpse as it stands. No maintenance work or updates have been done in years. It is in a very fragile state, and pretty much anything could have crashed it and destroyed all the info. As I stated in another thread here, we are working to get as much information as is practical and compatible and move it to Vintage Rocker. With the technical state of BaM as it is, there is really no other choice.

From what I understand, the V Bulletin software is about twenty five updates behind, and the rest of the site never had regular maintenance and upgrades to support the V Bulletin software. It was on life support, and deserves a mercy killing.

Yes, I am well aware that this really pisses some people off, but it was either grab it and try to save what we can, or possibly let the forum fall into nefarious hands, and I don't think anyone wants that. When I was offered the opportunity to buy the rights to the forum, I was told that others had also been making offers. To try and keep the PRS community from being broken in to smaller parts, it seems that we are doing what will serve the most people best. When I was approached by the brains behind this forum, it was said that this would be the more technical side of the PRS fandom, and that Vintage Rocker would be the social side. We are working to keep up our end of that agreement.

No one could be mad at the efforts put forth by you guys. This process was years in the making and you guys did all you could, and succeeded might I ad, at preserving our beloved community. I met some great people on BAM, a majority of you I would call real friends, and its good to know that the relationships will simply carry over to new horizons such as here and Vintage Rocker. With both forums running as well as they are, things are actually better than ever. So thanks Mike and everyone else involved, if anyone has anything other than that to say they need to reexamine the situation.

I eagerly wait to see the salvage effort and migration to VR :D

It is unfortunate if there are people out there whom think you you owe them something ............ I am personally not a big fan of people thinking they are entittled.

The reality is that B&M belongs to you & Gry. This does entittle you to do as you see fit. It was out there for anyone to purchase. You did, they didn't............... you don't owe anybody :)
