I was beginning to think it never would come back online..

I haven't seen this type of complete lack of reliability since my uncle's Harley back in the mid 80's.

It certainly is frustrating. Maybe the Mods would be willing to give us a heads up as to why this has been happening?

Doubtful. We just need to archive the important threads and make the move.
You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make them drink. Several
have offered to financially help out, but it was recieved on deaf ears. This is
a great board when it is available, but the up and down is inexcusable.

Ok I don't usually do this because I don't want anyone to think I'm trying to pull people away from one particular forum but I too get tired of having a forum go down. So here goes.......

There is a forum on delphi http://forums.delphiforums.com/kawvulcan/start
It is the Kawasaki Vulcan Riders Forum It has a section dedicated to the Meanstreak but it does not get much traffic? Probably because most of you are here??
It is a great group of people and I think I have even seen a couple of you over there. They even have a reunion every year and I have met alot of them in person so fwiw I think it would be a natural transition. The only reason I don't go to Meanriders is that I don't care for the layout. the colors make it very hard for me to read??? I just don't care to work that hard?

dj

eta: Oh yeah and there are ALOT of very helpful and knowlegable people over there! There is a wealth of knowledge about everything Vulcan there!!!

This is what happened at the ninja650 forum I was on back in '07. We lost a lot of great information when that forum went bye bye.

Archiving useful information is a great idea.

I went there a couple of times, but I don't like the user interface as much as this style forum.

Because for some people, it's never enough nor appreciated. You give, they want more. It's a "me" society.

I'm a moderator and I dont know why the forum was down for a few days. It is hosted by one person and maybe he was away. Heaven forbid he have a life and not sit there watching the server 24-7. I know he had server problems a while back and thought that was all fixed. When it goes down I send an email and if he is able he usually gets it right back up. Yes it has been frustrating lately, but believe me the administrator does the best he can.

Your right, it's free so why should we bit$h? Wait I know... All the other sites don't go down every other day and leave us looking for some place else to go!

Some of us appreciate the work you guys do for free. Therefore, Thank you.

If a forum is so crucial for some people who can't live a day or two without it, that's a pretty sad life. Perhaps they should get out more and ride.

LOL I'm hurt, all this talk and not one mention of "www.meanieforums.com"
I have had the site up for over a year now and yes most of you are already members but lets get it going.
Its been down 1 time in the last year.
I am also looking for help over there with trying to revamp and give it a more appealing look.

Anyways you know where to find me.
(oh yeah i am messing with the themes so they will change until I find one thats suitable so bear with me)

For those of you who are already members, Thanks for the support!!!

Very much appreciated, and have said so several times, but when you offer to help and it is not accepted, and the site keeps going down, it is very agravating. If only one person controls the board, maybe he should have a couple of mods that have admin rights also to help out. Its not about me, it about helping others in a dependable manner. People depend on this site for help with mechanical issues, comradere, financial help by using the marketplace, and just a good place to BS about a hobby we all enjoy. Is it asking too much to have the site reliably available?

Sorry Tuff, I metioned it in another thread. Meanriders, meanieforums, and several others don't seem to have the issues this board seems to have.
