I was a user of WinWorld for a long time, and there I got software, software help, but also sometimes hardware help.

I see a lot of software and software help here, but I am wondering would I also get hardware help here if I need it?

I find it's best to spread my wings and participate in more than one old/vintage computer related website.

You're welcome to post your hardware questions in off topic but keep the rest of the forum to software :)

Does anyone know what's going on with WinWorldPC? It seems to be down.

Sounds fishy. Why should he shut down the whole site if banning one admin would have been enough to fix the situation? Especially if he has as much "solid proof" as he says. My guess is that this is just a (rather lame) excuse for something else that's going on. It's no secret that WinWorldPC (or rather some of the staff/regulars over there) liked to create drama in the past...

But then again, I couldn't care less. I have never felt the need to go there since they don't have anything that's not also available here (at least last time I checked)...

The staff member in question, owned the domain and had control of a lot of things.

It wasn't just someone with administrative forum privilege.

May I remind everyone that this thread is not about WinWorldPC, the OP asked about what goes on on THIS site... if that's no longer the case then we will close this topic as it has played out its use.

Al right, can we please stop discussing WinWorld?

Please keep to what sort of things happen on this website, Thanks.

Please do not derail and/or get my thread locked. Thank you.

Ok, I think here is good to stop the thread since the OP got an answer to their question.
