Hello there! For anyone still sticking their head in here, years after it's gone dormant, thank you for trying. :) I am not going to renew the website the next time the domain registration or the hosting expires, I don't need to spend money on something dead.

That being said, I still feel like there is good information and history in here and I would like a way to preserve it. Does anyone have a way to download everything from the website in some way or form to keep for future reference(if anyone ever wanted...)?

Thanks in advance!
Kyle

That's not a bad idea.

Are you interested in transferring it to anyone else? I hate seeing sites like this die off.

I would be fine with transferring it to someone else willing to host and maintain it. I haven't had time to do anything with it for a few years now and it hasn't been used much, either. Damn Facebook! :lol:

Yeah, facebook are a suck against small forums. I'm on a PNW driver's forum and our traffic has definitely gone down in the last years with more traffic shifting to FB.

I can give space on my server no problem, but any time I could spend on helping with maintenance is severely limited (6 mo old daughter, more than full time job, and a few volunteer gigs). In lieu of actually keeping the forum alive, it's not hard to create a static archive for posterity. I'd be glad to host either way.

Hey Tyler, my Jaguarhost bill is due to keep the site alive and I haven't done anything to renew it... Credit card on file expired. Can you message here to discuss this further? Thanks!
