A post-ZS invitation: www.equipped.org

Post by Blast » Thu Jun 03, 2021 9:19 am

I'm still in shock over ZS shutting down, but if you need a replacement may I suggest http://forums.equipped.org/
It started in January of 2001 (yes, it's twenty years old!) and like ZS, we deal with real-world issues (lost in the woods, hurricanes, wildfires) though End of the World scenarios are discouraged. That being said, I think many of you would find a welcome home there. Some of you are there already and can vouch for the quality of the members.

And when you go over there don't forget to support Doug/ETS/KR with your donations so the lights can be kept on over there.

Copied and noted. Also, I'm working up a brand new forum that will incorporate a lot of the great features this place has, along with some needed improvements. I can't copy the contents of this place though so it's going to be a fresh start at the new place. On the plus side, there won't be tens of thousands of dead accounts and spammers clogging the works.
With ZS shutting down these forums on July 1st most of the cool kids have moved to a brand new site:

www.ufozs.com

It's not ZS, it's ... different. 8-)

See you there!

I'll be there. With bells on.
*Don't go to stupid places with stupid people & do stupid things.
*Be courteous. Look normal. Be in bed by 10'clock.

Goodby ZS. I miss thee so.

Yeah... no. The odds of the domain got.us being available were somewhere between zero and negative infinity, and it isn't. :(

A single letter domain? No way is that available...

"XXX.R.us" is unavailable and being held by the Regiatrar "Neustar" Though an email to their support or sales might offer a pricetag.
"ZombiesR.us" is being held by "Efrain Olivares" probably to make a few bucks.

Yeah, anything less than a 5 letter domain these days is nigh on impossible to find.

I'm still in shock over ZS shutting down, but if you need a replacement may I suggest http://forums.equipped.org/
It started in January of 2001 (yes, it's twenty years old!) and like ZS, we deal with real-world issues (lost in the woods, hurricanes, wildfires) though End of the World scenarios are discouraged.
Where's the fun in that then? They sound like a bunch of Pollyannas :mrgreen:

Couldn't even bring myself to login and comment when I first saw the announcement until I'd had time to process it, for years ZS has been one of the first sites I check each morning just to see how and what you guys are doing (and what I should be doing more of, or doing better) preparedness-wise. I'd really miss that and am glad to hear there's a replacement in the works, I prefer a forum format and am not a fan of other social media formats at all, so thanks NT2C.

Hope to see all you guys and gals at the new site.

See that’s exactly what I’d do. I have other social media’s usually to keep up to date on the daily goings on of the world, and to see friends and other people doing things I enjoy. ZS has been dead for the last 6 years on FB, we do have a local FB account thst me and a few others post in every once and awhile.

I’m really excited for the new forum NT2C is putting together. Sad that it’ll start fresh but I hope it’ll get the traction of this forum did and hopefully people seeing this site is going foen will get them to the new one.

I will be checking out the equipped site as well.

Same here, I really like the form format over others. I do not even have a FB account.
How will we be able to find this new site? Nevermind - I read the next post lol

I've been on the forums over at equipped.org for more than a couple minutes, and I'll also speak up to recommend it. It has been one of my go-to resources for a long time along with ZS.
