The Trenches Forum May Be Down—But it’s Not Out


Scott Beckmann, Trenches Founder

Numerous 1:6 scalers have written in to us lately regarding the unknown status and/or “fate” of the beloved GIjOE/action figure forum known as The Trenches. Clicks onto old links connecting to the website are currently coming up bone dry, and searches on Google too, are currently yielding no results. To discern the answer to this perplexing (and clearly troubling) question, we contacted the forum’s top man himself, Scott Beckmann, who kindly provided the following insider-intel:

malecomment“The Trenches are currently offline. We’re doing server maintenance and also some other stuff.”

Bottom Line: Take a breath, oh faithful “Trenchers.” Your favorite 1:6 scale hangout will be returning (sometime) very soon. And as they say—Good things come to those who wait!

    Very good to hear! Eagerly await its reappearance!

  2. GIJOEBILL says:

    Cool. I was freaking out.

    Hey thanks for the heads up on this. I read on the forum before it went down that they got hit with some hacks so they said they would be down to fix it.

  4. James says:

    Sadly, it appears to be down again. All I’ve gotten there over the last few weeks has been “Database Error.” I keep hoping it’ll return, but I do wonder what has happened. Hacks again? I hope not!

    Any update on this? Site has been down for months. All I get is that they are testing functionality and will be back soon.

    • Most recent reply from Scott Beckmann on the Trenches Facebook page is as follows:

      “Looking like a complete rebuild so any PM’s or pics will most likely be gone. When the site was hacked earlier last year, they came in through the gallery which is why it was the first feature taken down. A lot of the photos and links were infected and to ensure safety for the users Char turned them off so any pics originally in the gallery won’t be returning. After the GoDaddy code upgrade, anything we have had saved on the site won’t open and Lord knows she has tried. So, when time permits, the site will be rebuilt from scratch. I hope we can work on it over the holidays, but no promises.”
