I have been conversing a lot recently with a man named Jarkko Haarala, he's a resident of Finland who goes by higge on this forum and for the past year and a half has been running a discussion forum of his own at WorldWar2Talk.com (URL now currently forwards to WW2F.com). Please note that this is not our sister site WW2Talk.com. Unfortunately, due to factors out of his control higge must moving on to other things and will be unable to continue to maintain his forum through 2009. Rather than let his members and their posting vanish into the ether, higge has agreed to roll his members into these WW2 Forums! Hopefully the merge will be completely seamless. Members of WorldWar2Talk.com will be able to carry on posting here as before, it will be as if they had been posting here all along, and for WW2F.com members, they probably won't notice anything other than a sudden addition of posts and a few more members. While WorldWar2Talk.com wasn't exactly a giant website, both higge and I believe every single post and every single member is a valuable resource worth preserving. All data posted to his site will be merged with ours, and will live on permanently as a part of the WWII Forums. For those from WorldWar2Talk.com, I welcome you and christen you as 'Rogues' which is the colloquial term for all members of WW2F.com. If you have an account on both sites, please contact me via PM or via the email in my signature. I'll be able to merge your two profiles into one consolidated ID, with all your posts made at either site associated with it. For those from WW2F.com, please help me welcome our new members. They come from a site that used the same software as we do here, but I'm sure their culture might have been a bit different. Let's make them feel welcome shall we? Finally, cheers and a supreme thank you to higge! Not many other admins have such concern for their members, he put forth the extra effort to ensure they were not abandoned.
