What do we have to do to get some help around here? Are the forum mods just not here anymore? WTF is going on with this website?

Spam seems to become rampant, no wonder no one posts here anymore.

I agree. Would love a way to report people to someone that still has some authority on this site.

Doing a whois search, seems the domain expires in March.

I believe this would be the gentleman you need to speak with: https://www.facebook.com/tom.moog

I messaged him, see if he responds. I have the ability to host, and admin (already admin 4 other forums). Might have to up my bandwidth alotment, but thats not to big of an issue. The issue is, is there enough interest in even keeping the forums open?

Hi, apparently my first post here.
Although the forums aren't very lively these days, the information on them is a goldmine of resources, even if many links are expired/broken.
I purchased an '01 'Tek a year ago November, and this forum has saved my butt on multiple counts (see the resources on the '01 fuel pump connector under the passenger seat that gets water built up in it and corrodes; happened to me 3,000 miles from home while towing a trailer. Needless to say, having this knowledge in my back pocket courtesy of these forums was incredibly helpful)
Even if the talk dies, I think it would be worth the effort to keep the archive out there for research purposes.

That's my two cents anyway  ;D

I have yet to get a response from the owner. I think the forums are likely to die. He may not even remember that he has them anymore..

That would be sad if this forum dies. Good to know it expires in March though. I may have to back up some of the how-to's for personal reference. Along with some of the mods people have done, just in case I get frisky this summer with some projects. I visit here at least a couple times a week to check if new posts have been added. The spam seemed to stop for awhile now, so I would assume either the person got bored or someone with some MOD authority put a stop to it.

Weird, I haven't been seeing the spammer lately. I always click, "show unread posts since last visit." and it used to bring up all the spam, but it hasn't been lately. I take it no responses with outside contacts about the forum still?

It is annoying that recently, last couple months I would say, I keep getting an error message when submitting a post.

Database Error
Please try again. If you come back to this error screen, report the error to an administrator.

The post always posts though. Just annoying.

Nope, nothing. Its like none of the forum mods exist anymore. No contact from the owner. Nothing...

I know this forum isnt busy anymore, but there is a wealth of knowledge here, I would hate to see it go to waste.

Have you use the report to mod for the posts. I haven't gotten any. I just deleted a spam member
