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.

no, and we might be charged membership.
Hi Jason, what old info are you talking about?
our old host decided one day to delete a mdf file to help save space on our server


the newb typical level one fresh from geek squad, removed years of our data.

there were some backups but not to recent of that point in time.

so while the server was moved those backups should of been mounted..

thats whats he is asking.

10 days and no reply? Oh well, so much for new management. :(
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.
a corrupt sql database can take month to repair.....just a fyi
I am not happy with the a few of the SENIOR members.I see they are pretty demanding and lack common respect by the comments above..cwm8

I can see why someone hacked the forum and deleted the info now..

I can take them picking on me but I cant stand for slander and foul mouthed name calling..They need to act like adults not kids..They troll the forum and bash on my topic with no relative value of stats..I wish I could delete the whole post,I deleted mine to move on but they are relentless..They have no idea what or who...I or we are.. I do appreciate the few NICE SR members who actually have great input and stay on the thread topic.Thank you for cleaning the site up and monitoring us crazy people..Muggzz
you have to understand the way this was brought to them.

lets some it up like this.

"Hi we are the new owners of your information, your sweat, your blood, your dedication to ISSF and the bbody community. We own it now so you cant edit it. We also added advertisements and would highly recomened you paying for somthing that has always been free, thanks have a nice day"

me personally i see no speed difference, ISSF was never REALLY slow for me... it had a DNS issue and a few SQL issues but slow...not since i been here.

some people are just going to have a problem with it, fact of the matter is the forum is owned by a buisness now...its nothing but a tool to make money.

what i am worried about is when this tool no longer makes money.

Nothing to do with the issue,paranoid? I seem to be clarifying your slanderous remarks for the most part.

Ban hammer? Better have valid reason..What about the Sr.who like to call names and use foul language? Thats how you communicate to other??

My silly question was answered by Mr.Pogo and Buffman without negative feedback.OEM is the best choice.I did not ask about the HD12 kit that they went rambling on about.The thread topic says it clear as day(slotted or drilled rotors)I did an advanced search before I posted.nothing in the archives about it so I posted my thread.

After they posted the HD12 kit I stated I would get a certain brand caliper to use with the kit and thats where things/ASSumptions began from the others.

Get you facts straight before you throw rocks from a glass house...;)
so whats the problem here? intewebs was too hard on you?
man who cares let them type their words until their fingers bleed.
