So is there a plan to move the pictures and files? What platform is there besides FB?

I thought there was a Google platform, and there is the website forum on the Waco website, but there s no way to load pictures and store files there. Besides, I m not sure how much longer Waco will support the GL.

groups.io is the best platform, but the first year requires $110 up
front or $10/month

They will transfer all members and, I think, files.

We started a forum on the Waco website but it didn t get any popularity.  Besides as a user experience, it was almost as bad as Yahoo.  Facebook is not evil if you don t give
them any personal information, so I recommend creating a profile for your airplane instead of yourself.

?The International Stinson Club moved all their data off the Yahoo platform not to long ago for this very reason.  Will Ware was the one who facilitated that.  A reach out to that club may provide you with some options.
