Hello Members!

Since we created this website back in 2000, it has grown by leaps and bounds – and so has the amount of maintenance that is required to keep things running smoothly. As many of you are well aware, over the past year or so, I have not been able to devote as much time and attention as I used to towards system maintenance. In order to help return the site to a more efficient level, I have chosen to sell the Forum to a company called AutoGuide, which operates hundreds of automotive forums – they will take over the hosting and maintenance of the website. Because of all of the problems we were experiencing with my previous hosting company, the website has already been copied over to AutoGuide’s servers – this should help keep the website running smoothly.

Although AutoGuide is taking over the operational aspects of the website and you may see some changes appear as a result, the forum itself should not be greatly affected. I will still be involved with the website as much as time permits, and the existing moderator staff will still maintain their rights and roles in the forum. At some point in the near future, additional staff will be brought on board to provide extra assistance to the community. The vast majority of the forum’s existing rules and regulations will stay in place – the last thing we want to do is negatively impact your experience on this website. So please buckle up and have fun while we attempt to make this website even better!

Are we getting the old info back? A simple yes or no answer would be appreciated by all.


I am surprised that Scott has not discussed the old data with you. It is nine years worth of posts, ending with Rackforce's deletion of data in July 2009. Scott has located backups of that material from before he switched to the current bulletin board software. So, roughly 7 years of material to be added back.

This is INVALUABLE material, and would greatly increase the value of your investment. I can say with confidence that should you be successful in restoring that data, the membership would be inclined to welcome you (and your company) with open arms.

Good luck,
I have a tech team that I rely on. Scott would have likely told them about it. I will have to talk to them and double check what was discussed. I will let you guys know though for sure if we can figure something out.
We all look forward to your answer.
I have not talked to Tech since last week, but I am under the impression that they will be restoring ALL the data that I gave them.
Great news! This alone should make people relax about the new owners. Maybe even prompt a few to pick up a membership ;)
Then bring back the member numbers.
Everybody under 1000 gets a cookie!
Helena how did you get yours to say "canada eh"?
Umm, she bought the forum ;)
I thought it would be the easiest to understand. The job title of "She who has to put up with the crazy car guys" would be too long...
i answered this in another section sorry.

They are still breaking it down. it needs to be converted and takes a lot of time. we had to outsource it, but he is contract and has other things to do so it will take time.
So... it's been three and a half years since that update... how's the old info coming along?
