We might be able to get some of those posts back. There was a LOT of posts, so if we do bring them back, do we bring back all of it, or some of it, or ???

Some threads need to be salvaged like the OSMUPE thread, but others like the Doubles thread should probably die.

Well...pretty much assured it is not a scratch platters issue or it would still boot up but would just have issues...if it didn't boot it should be nothing to do a recovery still.

Hey all

The testing on the site is done now. In the process of moving it from one provider to another. Fingers crossed that it will be up tonight.

If you notice problems or not sure where things are, there is a trouble shooting forum and inside there is a "best practices" thread where I've (and others) have posted some of our lessons learned, how-to's, and gotchas.

Sully: I passed along your email to CRF (site owner), and he said he'll reach out at some point. So, if you see an email from a Govind that would be him. PM me if you want his email too.

Thanks again for your patience.

Edit: Site will be up tomorrow, not tonight.

I had completely forgotten about the freezer thing. I think I did that once some 25 or 30 years ago. Good times.

Just a complete and total question for the purpose of easing my curiousity. Do you really care about how many posts you have on a site? I'm not insinuating or saying there is anything wrong with it, I guess it seems odd to me that anyone would actually care at all about a post count. If the answer is yes, and if you would indulge me, why do you care?

thanks in advance,

Please give CRF my worst. And tell him he is an Ahole. That he runs one of the worst most corrupt forum around.

No I don't really care about it,its just a marker or milestone of how involved you are . Like I said if they get them back then fine, if not certainly not a big deal.

yeah...honestly as stuff advances and the tolerances get tighter and tighter it really doesn't take much to mess things up so the freezer trick is actually crazy handy...smaller denser parts don't react as much but the tollerances are so tight it doesn't take much

Thanks, like I said I was just curious......

The one thing about that other now dead site was at least there was a LOT of activity on it. The Off Topic section had a lot of good information for basically anything anyone ever needs to know about anything. Other then the double standards and the megalomaniac jackoff mod it was good as there was literally always something going on for discussion.......

Anyone remember who the "Megalomaniac Jack-Off Mod" was on riderfanatics?

I mean his screen or fictional name. I thought most of the mods there were kinda out of their mind. Graduates of Trump Doomeversity if you will. :cowboy:

That's probably cause you were posting inflammatory crap and were given multiple warnings about it.

Then you were given multiple warnings about where you heading with your inflammatory crap.

Then when you got what you wanted and were permanently banned you resorted to whining and complaining and taking no blame even though ALL the blame was on you.

Then you took to name calling on other sites where the ones you attack have no recourse to defend themselves.

Maybe you should rethink?

In my case I absolutely DESTROYED the megalomaniac jackoff mod in multiple debates, he couldn't handle it, and was on a vendetta.

I warned him what would happen and when he continued his double standards I stopped posting and left on my own accord.

I was never banned that I know of but was given bullpoop infractions for the exact same thing that numerous other posters were doing every single hour.

I won and left. Their site crashed, PERMANENTLY. Not saying the two were directly linked but it sure smells like poetic justice. :rockin: :rockin:

Nope. It's back up and over 400 members have re-signed up. But, if you had a problem with the mods before, you'll likely have the same problems.

I was referring to the old site that permanently crashed.

They now have a new site which is operational.

Anyway I think my posts defending the old site are quite clear. I had no problem with it other then one megalomaniac jack off mod. So, and not to nitpick, you saying I had a problem with mods [plural] is inaccurate. I had a problem with a poster who happened to be a mod, who then exerted his mod powers over me cuz as a poster he was a dud. :rockin:

Anyway. Enjoy it over there. Being the fair person I am I may take a look at it at some point in the future.
