    3. The only happy thoughts I have about the lists closing is when I think of the thousands or maybe hundred of thousands of bounces the spammers are going to get when the list server shuts down.

    3. Again, If they turn out the lights at Rootsweb, how would we know? I am simply irritated. I found an existing Bulletin Board with no administrator that is relevant to my interests. So, I clicked on the button to apply to be the administrator. I got a reply refusing my request to create a new Board. For the following reason: (Yes, the reason field is blank.)

    3. Glen and Keith, I received blank refusal messages this morning too re my asking to admin old Boards. Very strange. But all my lists got moved in time and people have joined. Glen, hope we weren't applying for the same Boards. :-) See everyone on the new lists. Diane M Diane Rogers, British Columbia, Canada https://about.me/mdianerogers

    3. Hi Keith Were you signed in when you applied? Just wondering if that might be a factor? But I know there have been/are glitches with the boards of late Nivard Ovington in Cornwall (UK) On 02/03/2020 06:33, Keith Meintjes wrote: > Again, > > If they turn out the lights at Rootsweb, how would we know? > > I am simply irritated.

    3. Nivard, Yes, I was signed in. All I had to do was click the button. I was not asked to then provide an ID or e-mail address. The bot reply came to my e-mail address.

    3. I was surprised the messages are still coming! Keith and Glen that sounds about par for any website Ancestry owns or makes rules for . Maybe they'll reconsider... unless they have you black-listed as troublemakera. Rootsweb/Ancestry won't let me re-register to get to my WorldConnect tree to update it. (I've tried many times and even wrote for help and sent clips of messages from the registration page) I've had my website for abt. 20 years and always kept it updated. I had about 37,000 well documented entries when they froze it. Maybe they are afraid I'll remove it instead. They reformatted it and deleted all the sources, documentation and notes so it's value to others as a dependable research site is diminished, and I can't use it as a back-up Anne Fender Halford -----Original Message----- From: Valorie Zimmerman <valorie.zimmerman@gmail.com> Sent: Monday, March 2, 2020 12:35 AM To: Listowners list for Rootsweb list admins and moderators <listowners@rootsweb.com> Subject: [LO] Re: Lists closing On Sun, Mar 1, 2020 at 9:35 PM Timothy Stowell <timsetn@gmail.com> wrote: > I trust someone is turning out the lights as we leave! > > Tim Stowell > Not me -- I'll miss this list.
