Unhappy What happened to RV Pic's dot Com?

Anyone know what happened to RV Pic's dot com Forums? I had friends and pictures on that forum and when I went there all I get is a Go Daddy Advert, saying that the Domain Name is for Sale. I don't know how to get ahold of some of the friends on that forum. any info appreciated.

Are you sure you have the correct spelling? That doesn't look like a legitimate Internet address.

The actual URL is www.rvpics.com I did not put in the url because of search engines following. Oh Well. Guess it don't matter.

I got an email last month advising me to remove any pics I wanted to save because the rvpics.com site would be shutting down. No reason given. My guess is that the owner just got tired of paying for the domain and server and maintaining the site. Operating most internet sites is a labor of love and sometimes love dies...

That is for for sure. I know I run a couple of blog sites and a website / forum for RV Bloggers. I will be shutting down my Forum for lack of interest and Cost of maintaining it. I never got the message that RV Pic's was shutting down. I was sorry to see it go.

Here is a copy of the email I got.


I regret to inform you that RVPics will cease to exist within the next week. Please check in one last time to say goodbye and collect emails from those you care about.


Details here ----> www.rvpics.com

Cordially, Don

If you went to the above link he said it was for a few reasons but I think the main one was the time & money it took,
I do know he tried to sell the Domain to several RV related web sites. Don't know what he was asking. According to whois the domain Expires on: 30-Mar-13

I was sorry to see it go. I met many nice people on that forum and made a few friends. I shut my RV Bloggers Forum Down a few weeks ago. Hosting Costs, Lack of interest, and to time consuming. I did not allow any advertising nor solicit money from members. It was entirely free. There was a lot of activity on RV Pic's that's why it came as a surprise that it shut down, but I can understand the time and money bit. been there done that.

Hello all,
I ran across this post while scanning Google, and feel like I need to reply to it.
First, let me respond by saying the RVPics is back up and running. I hung
on to the domain name, hoping I could bring it back some day. I did not try to sell it,
MikeCoke, so you must have confused us with another domain. GoDaddy often lists parked
domains for sale without the registrant's permission.

Thanks to all who participated in this discussion. It's nice to know RVPics was missed.
The new incarnation is starting from scratch with 27 members signed up since we went live
two weeks ago. Hope to see some more old members return.

My apologies to the webmaster here at iRV2, in case I bent any rules about advertising
another site. I just saw the questions and thought they needed to be answered.

Cordially,
Don

That's because MikeCokes is a link to a page that not longer exists. Mhbell's link is to the main site, which is up again.
