Really? This site hasn't sold out enough with our billion ads and now we even have a sponsored section? That needs a PASSWORD that people don't know?

I think they are giving us the cold shoulder because of all our questions. Seems like they really have no interest in helping us, all that matters is the $. The site is spinning down the toilet because of lack of assistance.

Everyone pull together some money and buy this site out, get it right again. They keep adding pointless crap on here and clogging this site with adds that no one will go to.

If it is that simple of backing up the site I will buy a 1.5 TB or 2 TB external hard drive and send it to the admin or scooby, whoever is possible to back the entire site up.

I doubt autofourms is simply going to give anyone of their forums in hard drive form. Might as well be handing you all the money they paid for this site.

Well, I really hope scooby made a backup before he sold it then or if he can still make one now because I have a feeling this site is going to be deleted, or if autoforums is just going to let it run rampant as long as the money is comming in from all the ads.

Fucking might as well delete the forums and just put all adds on the mainpage.

Maybe you guys should not speak quite so harshly about the current site owners. They could just shut it off if it's not making enough revenue to cover the cost of it's bandwidth.

Am I the voice of reason? Not my usual role..

But we know that isn't going to happen, since we are still bringing up their revenue. And we know they are all about the revenue.

Cost of bandwidth? I'm going to assume Scooby at least stayed even, with 1/20th of the ads.

You are correct that if the site is turning a profit on ad clicks/views minus bandwidth and support costs, they probably won't shut it down. It's a business though.

Making 1% profit (potentially huge underestimate) hardly makes it worthwhile for them to deal with people (especially 'staff') bitching about a few more ads on the screen.

If people are bothered by the ads Dl adblock for firefox its free and does away with most banners and all that .. we get a somewhat clutter free site and they get the ad people paying to post the ads we dont see .. everyone wins except the advertisers ..

As for backing up the site .. Find a mirroring program .. and use it ..
