eastman: It was discussed yesterday. It is a great loss to the sword community. My condolences to his family and friends. I never bought from him direct, but I am the current owner of a number of other people's custom swords. Jun 30, 2024 14:30:53 GMT
JonSchwertFechter: Im not sure if anyone here has heard the Tragic News Yet-- or if This Is the Appropriate place to write this.- but through Mutual sword friends; I just heard the That the esteemed and skilled Sword maker "Purna Darnal"-known to many here--Just Passed away Jun 30, 2024 9:04:10 GMT

musashi5o: anyone interested in dynasty forge swords? lol I have a huge collection Jun 18, 2024 22:07:30 GMT
mrstabby: Yeah, I agree. But even having enough server spave doesn't necessarily mean the code could cope with all of the data (maybe overload is the reason for the recent PM troubles?). Probably less lost by cutting the marketplace than the other subs. Jun 16, 2024 10:19:59 GMT
fivesidedpixels: That's a bit sad. There were nuggets of good info, discourse, and of course nice sword photos in there. I'm not the one running the servers, though, so c'est la vie. Jun 16, 2024 0:02:13 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: Probably deleted because forum servers running out of attachment storage space. Jun 13, 2024 3:50:06 GMT
