    Because of the hike in prices for web/and forum hosting, SanDiegoFanForce.com and the forums are going DARK (shutting down) on Saturday, February 16, 2013.

    Since only a few people were active on the boards, we couldn't justify paying almost $100 per year for keeping it.

    Because of this, and a temporary void for an official site, we will be using these forums and our Facebook group for all communications, until we can figure out an alternative forum option/website for the club.

    Another thing we can discuss at our upcoming monthly meeting on February 19th: http://boards.theforce.net/threads/sdff-monthly-meeting-february-19.50009550/

    Our Facebook group page is at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/18350664456/

    Is there a possibility of keeping at least the main page url with just maybe the word press blog?

    It's $80+ regardless of what we put up. We still have the domain name, but the web hosting is what costs.

    The domain name, sandiegofanforce.com, has been renewed for 2 years. The cost was $22. The treasury can pay me back at the next meeting or gathering.

    If the group wants to set up a WordPress page for free on WordPress.com, I can set the domain name to direct to traffic there.

    Thank you! Let me know if you'd like to be reimbursed before the meeting. I can send it through PayPal.

    The wordpress site is a good idea, we need an official website; and it will be redirecting members to these forums...did any new members...or "facebook group" members register on these boards yet? just curious

    did you post about these boards on facebook?
    (and is there a way to pin posts to the top of the facebook wall.. we should do that with our top news, so they don't get buried by stupid photo posts)

    Can we forward sandiegofanforce.com to these boards? We will at least have these boards as a website instead of it landing to the parked godaddy page.

    Done. It may take a day or so to be completely processed, but I checked the Preview and it worked.

    I tried it and got this message.

    Jedi Council Forums - Error
    The controller XenForo_ControllerPublic_Forum does not define an action called Forum.

    It could be that you have to be a registered user to see the forums. I can re-direct it to the Facebook page, which is for public viewing.

    I thought maybe I needed to be signed in on this page for the redirect to work but nope it still does the same thing.

    Not really a big deal. At least it'll get people close to here.
