Yes, please do. the administrators might want to change their question to one less subject to interpretation/debate. I wonder how many other potential members just gave up on the effort to join?

 ???
Hep,Sent the administrator a PM questioning new member admittance and have not heard back.Seems he has not been on the site since January 2018 which is about the time the HMA was supposed to shut down.Now the last member to join was back in December 2017.Don't know who is  running the operation there now but I did make a post to see if anyone still there knows what's up. So far no response.

Hep. That's where you screwed up. We have 8 fingers and 2 thumbs. Well,most of anyway.

So I succeeded in registering. Now I'm just waiting to be "approved".

 ::)

You know what the idiots running the forum wanted for answers though? "Ten" fingers and "Obama" as the current President!

 :o

Why not "Jefferson" then? I am livid!

Fmofmpls, Mike Scott and the other UMA bigwigs should open discussions to take over the Halloween Mask Association so that the valuable posts made on that forum over the years aren't lost. HMA posts could all be moved into the Masks and Busts forum on UMA with perhaps the creation of two or three Child Boards. Anyone attempting to log into HMA should immediately find himself in the Masks and Busts forum here while all existing log-ins to HMA continue to work on UMA.

The benefit to UMA would be more membership with a much larger and more active Masks and Busts forum.

The powers that be here on UMA should get on it!

Great idea, Hep!

I've sent a PM to Fmofmpls so he can't claim ignorance.

 That'll teach him. If he doesn't respond...one demerit (remember, that goes on your permanent record).

Wow! Not to mention other members who are missing in action. Sean, Scatter, Horrohunter and many more.

No.  At least, not actively.  He has been selling quite a few items from his collection on eBay.

He told me he is more involved in music-related interests and, I think I remember correctly, dealing in guitars, etc.

He is well and enjoying himself - just not monstering so much nowadays.


It was he who told me about the UMA, back when it was a Yahoo group.  He patiently answered hundreds of my questions and helped me so much in growing my monster collection and learning some of the tricks of the trade in effectively using eBay.

I miss him.

Yeah, looks like he lost interest in the hobby.  :(

The 3 reasons people are no longer active members:
1. Lost interest in the hobby.
2. Went to FB, etc.
3. Died.

Well I'm not yet suffering from any of those afflictions.
