MCD Racing Forum Closing Down....
« on: September 12, 2017, 01:20:50 PM »
Hi all,

Just letting you all know, in advance, that the time has come that this forum will be coming to an end next month.

Unfortunately, with Facebook taking over with everything these days, and the massive hosting budget that they have... it's become too hard to try to get people to come here and post.  I have no interest in chasing sponsors/dealers to help fund this forum anymore, and the money can't keep coming out of my pocket.

Anyway, I wont bore you all with the details.... but, it's been great being a part of this forum.

Thank you to all the supporters, dealers, and members that I have been in contact with via this site.

Regards,
Franco.

Thanks Erdal... It's been great to have been able to meet you, although not in person... perhaps one day.  Keep in touch... via FB  :unsure:

Sad to ear, will all data be lost or will there be a way to archive all that, unfortunately on Facebook there is hundreds of groups and hard to find the valuable inf found here, specially when you start with this brand.

Cheers guys.... I backup the forum every few weeks, in the last few days i'll be backing up daily to make sure I get the very last snap-shot.

So true regarding info on Facebook, so many people are starting groups or pages for this brand (or even other brands) and they are so willing to post there.... but, 6 months later you cant find any info that you're looking for  ::) ::)  Very annoying!!!   And to make things worse, they refuse to post here because their mates aren't on here  :o

Just looking at the possibility of moving the whole site to a free host.  Free hosting are generally pretty crap, but better than losing the lot!!
