    G.I. jOE forum “The Trenches”

    Hey everyone,

    Is the G.I. jOE forum the “The Trenches” a goner? Site hasn’t been up for awhile now.

    They had more technical issues months ago with the site, and Scott said they will be working on it to bring it back up, but I'm not sure we'll ever see it again.

    They are currently operating in a group on Facebook under the same name.
    As said the actual forum has been having recurring problems (I believe due to Go Daddy, the company hosting them).

    Their facebook group is pretty slow. Hardly any posts.

    It's easy to take for granted how great a forum we have here but when you see how badly "The Trenches" struggles, it really illuminates how lucky we are we have this.

    I don't do the Facebook thing either.

    Maybe we can add a GiJoe section on here?

    the forum was pretty much like that too. very little activity and hardly anyone ever on at any given time. really makes you appreciate what a special place MM is

    My experience with the Trenches was very positive. Though it was not as trafficked as here, I met some great folks there, both generous and helpful.
