GoDaddy was not willing to take payment from me because they couldn't even discuss the amount due without the account holder's last 8 of the credit card to verify his identity.

Well, we have 1 week to do something. Hopefully someone is working on this.

I know of a member of Refstripes who is working with GoDaddy to help contact the family of the owner.

None of this sounds optimistic at all. Maybe it was meant to die with the owner?

Peace

If finances are a problem, I'm willing to chip in.

I'm not the one in contact with them but I don't believe finances are a problem. Right now they are trying to get in contact with the family in order to get authorization to release the website to someone else.

What does this have to do with respect? Maybe he did not want anyone else or did not attempt to have anyone else take the website/domain? If people are having a hard time to get access to the website or the domain name (because they do not have access to the family), that might have been the intent all along. Can you not say that?

It might be the case if you cannot get that access. Because if the plan was to give this to others to keep going, then this should have been planned for accordingly.

I personally do not care either way. It is a website. Websites go away all the time and sometimes they go away because the people in charge do not want others to have access to their information.

Sorry this site means the world to you, but that is an observation that I stand by. Because most similar sites have multiple people that have access to this information in order to keep things going, especially if the person as the owner is knowingly sick or might realize they need to get their intentions in order.

Peace

Not everyone is prepared to pass away tomorrow. I know I'm not. The websites I operate I am the only one with access. Maybe I need to write down instructions for my family with what I want them to do with my sites. Naw, I'll do that tomorrow.

Well, the GoDaddy information is no longer on refstripes. Something must be going on with the site.

Thank God that it is. Now, football officials can enjoy a useful resource again, and not have to worry about auctions or GoDaddy.com for some time, and get back to high school, college, and NFL rules.
