The Forum is back

Post by colby »

First, let me say I apologize it took so long to bring this place back up. I have a very busy and hectic "real life" and in reality, I could've done this months ago if I put my mind to it. Its a lot of work because the forum was running custom modifications that I no longer had access to, so it requires manually pruning the database of all traces of those addons.

Second, everything is in its place, and working, as far as I can tell. All old posts are preserved, and this is a clear snapshot of exactly where the forum was when taken down.

Last, Jack has retired his business and moved. Before he did this, I told him I would keep a copy of the forum and possibly host it elsewhere. It is currently residing on one of my virtual servers, and will remain there for the foreseeable future. Because of this, there are not any restrictions on vendors, parts websites, or anything that previously was prohibited because it competed with Jack's business.

I do not require funds to pay for the hosting. I have used the same server for 5 years for other projects and will continue to do so, and the forum can quietly reside in the background using literally no resources whatsoever. If anyone has any questions, please feel free to message/email me through the board.
