Every time new members ask a question then never return to acknowledge it, the forum crashes.

Wiped clean, a fresh start. I'm on quite few other car forums and this is a new one for me. A clean slate. if need be, kool I'm all for it. Hope there is no problems with TAC and if there are any, hope it's all resolved now. Happy New Year everybody. Stay safe.

I feel for the build threads.  However, it might all still be there in the internet archive (wayback machine).  if it is, the photo links would be there too.  But not all threads are in there.

We lost everything one time before, about 15 years ago. So this is actually the 2nd total loss.

It's not so much the new guys who turn up and feel a loss because they can't find someone's posts, but the guys posting those as well and the thousands of photos and files they have filled up photobucket or flickr with, only to find they are no longer linked to anything. It can take many times longer to update files with new links and photos then to start over from scratch.

One of the guys told me what happened- a great loss no doubt, but we are still here. We can rebuild this forum.

You are 110% correct there were some old threads that were TRUE gold!
Many of the Old timers are gone and with them their knowledge.  :sad:

For a forum as big as this one was NOT to have been backed up regularly Is a crying shame perhaps its time for new owner ship?

has lots of the old stuff.

The owner of TA Country site can reach out to them and they will provide copies to them. Of course they are static pages, not data base.

Plus, your work was making the rest of us look pretty ordinary. Something had to be done.
