Dear AK-47.net Members The web site specifically the web board has become a huge financial burden upon me. I am currently in college and cannot afford to pay $3000.00 a month for a server. My current provider has been kind enough to allow the site to remain until we find a solution. Unfortunately the cost and time required to maintain this site exceeds my budget at this time. I will consider offers to sell the site, however they must be in the best interests of the site. Unfortunately I am forced to close the forums until a solution can be found. Please make inquires to: webmaster@ak-47.net. Sincerely Webmaster

Yikes, I loved that site! I posted as RevEdwTeague. I had EricTheHun, but I could never get my password for that moniker. Sad to see it go.[:(] Eric The Hun

Ak-47.net tits up. Bummer. A certain poster kept ranting that that site was dying. I don't think he meant it that way though.

No but he's over at Assult web saying that he told us all so. Man as long as he's on his MED's he's ok. lots of good info. But sometimes he can be a real D**K!! ??????So who wants to buy AK-47.net???????

Although I hate to see another gun-specific site go down, I never was impressed with AK47.net. A little too sophomoric for my tastes, and I learn much more here while having the same amount of fun. I'll take my AR.com anyday of the week =) Jewbroni~

I never went to the sight but I feel the pain of the users. I would be lost if I lost AR15.com. Thats too bad. Six

So much for the reliability of the AK vs the AR...... Sorry, I couldn't resist. I hate to see the site go too. A TRIBUTE: [img]http://wsphotofews.excite.com/029/9S/qS/Rt/4u82432.jpg[/img]

That site was the best man. It was the first time I could ask questions about guns and the finer things in life with out having to put up with annoying geezers or anal retentive gun cultists/militants. Plus I could say the word shit (see last sentence). Not knocking this site, just never could deal with the layout or amount of traffic.

Hate to see it goes. We need more gun board not less.

well ill be damned, that was a good site. Let's all keep clicking our banner ads so we dont see the same fate! sd

i also hate to see it go,but lets be honest here,in the last few months the average age of the membership sunk to about 15 years old and lack of any moderation of any kind on the part of the owner,allowed the inmates to take over the asylum.i'm sure our mods here are now on red alert to make sure that the Escapees don't take over this asylum.mmk

While I dig this site and the people on it. I also like AK47.net. The lack of moderation is what caused it to be fun. Sure it would get out of hand once in a while but all in alla small price to pay for all the info and even the occasional flame war. Some of the funniest posts came from flame wars.
Link Posted: 5/17/2001 4:52:04 AM EST
I hate that....I really liked the site.
Link Posted: 5/17/2001 7:47:04 AM EST
You know ak-47.net should become a usenet news group - then it can never go away. Usenet was the original discussion groups on internet and they are still very popular today. If ar15.com is ever is in financial trouble we can do the same thing. We should start documenting all the good info in a massive FAQ....

Man, I'm gonna miss the t&a.

Link Posted: 5/17/2001 6:42:29 PM EST
Oh, c'mon Paul, like AK-47.net was anything more than what you called it. The t&a joke was a joke. No one was asking for that to come here.
Link Posted: 5/18/2001 3:33:22 PM EST
I will also miss the AL-47 site. As a new owner of an AK I found it was very informative and educational. The t&a and KKK shit was annoying, but I still liked the site. My good buddy is an AR-15 owner and invited me to goin this site. I hope there is a possibility for an AK-47 GD. I think the AK and the AR make for a perfect world in a discussion group. Two very diffrent aproaches to the assult rifle! [x]

(pardon my extreme bias) ak47dotnet was THE FINEST firearms board on the net. do not judge the entire site by the g.d. forum. the individual firearms forums were a "who's who" of the finest ak minds inthe country. the database was a wealth of technical and historical info. the oft abused "freedom" of posting that they offered was refreshing in an era of censorship, bias and homogenous blathering. certainly, the site attracted some extremists...but it was a bastion a both freedom and knowledge. i regret its' passing...and can only hope that someone has the means and initiative to create a similar entity.

I hate to see ak-47.net go. I got some great advice from the Build It Yourself forum. Sad to see it go.

RIP my friend. RIP

Yeah, I'm a AR fan, and I also hate to see it goe. The AK-net was the first firearms related discussion board I came across. I really enjoyed the the information, diverse opinion, and the freedom of speech that was practiced on that board. It seemed that anyone could say anything they wanted there whether other people agreed with it or not. This was the second gun related message board that I came across and have spent most of my time here, but I will truly miss AK-47.net alot, sad to see it goe.
Link Posted: 5/18/2001 6:52:01 PM EST
Hmmm...on AKnet we had an admin who [b]trolled his own board[/b]...add to that Valmet who kept wandering around with a sandwich board that read [i]"The World Will End Tomorrow"[/i].... [b]Then it happened.[/b] [x] AKnet admin = Valmet ?? [:)] G2
