[AMC-list] the AMC-LIST.com domain....

hey everyone... tom jennings here.

i've not been on this list for some time, though i'm one of the administrators! oops. frank swygert had some technical issues posting this, and due to the nature of the posting, wasn't deemed worth fixing the problem.... so heres the news:

The domain name is up for renewal 7 January, and Tom and I have been
discussing whether we are going to renew it or not. It's not expensive,
but there is so little activity here it's hardly worth keeping the list up
except for nostalgia.

The main reason the old fashioned mailing list is dying out (all of them!)
is because there are so many other venues now. There are at least a dozen
Facebook pages that focus on specific models, time frames, or interests.
There is the AMC Forum (
), that is probably the premier
AMC site. All of those also allow photos to be posted and work well on
modern computers. They are more what people expect today and are a bit
easier to use.

So the list is pretty much obsolete. Tom is looking at saving the archived
files, but there really isn't much good info that can't be found on other
web sites any more, and easier. I still have a couple of the old archive
disks, but haven't searched one of them in many years.

So what say you? The largest archive (largest number of posts) in a month
this year was February at 9K (30 messages), and most of that was "How many
are still on this list" -- only 11 other posts. Average was about 8 posts
per month. It's only $15 a year, so it's not a bother to keep it open for
at least one more year, but I won't after that.
