  • HMEM help

    To anyone who is a member of the HMEM forum and is able to log in would you please notify one of the administrators that there is some kind of SNAFU going on with trying to log in and or resetting one's password.
    Thanks,
    gbritnell

      We know about it, George.

      Rick, the owner, sold the site to a group in Texas. The professionalism with which the transfer is being handled leaves a lot, a whole lot, to be desired.

      I managed to connect with the new site after a lot of screwing around but now, within the last few minutes, it's arbitrarily kicked me off again.

      Give it a day or two. I expect it to get worse, a lot worse, before it gets better.
      Regards, Marv

        Hi Marv,
        I finally got an email with a new password. I was able to get in and change to another password. It took about 9 tries since trying to log in this morning.

          I was planning on signing up today or tomorrow to put a call out for photos of Ray HasBrouck’s engines, but looks like I might want to wait.

            You might want to rethink before you sign up to the new site.

              Wow, he sold the HMEM forum? What did he sell? The membership list, the content posted there, the ad service...?

                Okay, I’ll just get someone else to do it!

                Pretty heavy handed approach; wonder how that’s going to pan out. Too bad too, it was a nice site.

                  George,
                  i think a lot of the members might graduate over to the Madmodder forum. http://madmodder.net/index.php

                  A lot are member of both anyway.

                  Nice forum.

                    Had a PM that this group was the one that purchased them.

                      "Group Builder also actively acquires forums and niche content websites.

                      Group Builder has been active in discussion forums since 2001 and has developed the knowledge of what it takes to successfully manage a community in a wide array of verticals.

                      If you are the owner of a forum and are open to the idea of selling please contact us. We are open to all subject matters and can offer a quick and smooth transition for both yourself and your community. In addition to a great team of community administrators we have the technical resources to handle the transfer from start to finish no matter what platform you are running on.

                      Is this even legal?

                          I'm glad I don't happen to be bleeding at the moment!

                            Well, Austin isn't in Texas, but San Marcos is close enough

                            Group Builder:
                            "Through our growing portfolio we have developed a network of interconnected traffic, content, and server infrastructure."

                            So Group Builder apparently bought the content from the HMEM site. But you can't apply that IP ownership clause post-facto, and there are issues of explicit and implicit copyrights, third-party posts, citations from copyrighted sources, posts that are flat-out plagiarized...

                            Boy, this will be a barrel of monkeys!

                              I'm disappointed in that operation. Rick was (may still be) a good one.
                              I just recd. an e-mail from one of the admin. about the re-doing of
                              login and told him to take care of it since I couldn't make it work.
                              Now that I hear all this I may just leave. Oh well I'm not really an
                              engine modeler anyway and this and another site (mostly are good
                              old boys in TX) will have to suffice. :-)
