    Question About donations (?)

    Are donations still accepted after the recent unpleasantness?

    Hmm.. relating to this - http://www.grandprixforums.net/threa...70#post1461170

    Is everything sorted and the donations by clicking the Donate button can continue, or..? I really can't tell if you're being sarcastic, lol.

    i dont see a point in donating at this point, the owners dont seem to care enough to fix the site...and they know its been hacked.

    Who owns the site now?

    And why is there a G6 in the banner?

    It's not a G6...It's a Grand Prix with a G6 body kit.
    Kinda like a VW with a Rolls Royce grill.

    the sites rumored to be shut down in the fall, thats when the domain expires. unless the owners wife or whoever now owns it pays to keep it up gpf will just be history like all the other prix forums that went belly up recently.

    I really do not want to see the information on this site get lost to the sands of Internet time.. there is entirely too much irreplaceable data here.

    If the intention is for the site to shut down this fall, I would like if one of the admins/owners got ahold of me so I could, at the very least, preserve the forum SQL databases. I already co-administrate a different page for W cars, and we've fought like hell to keep these cars documented as best as possible.

    if your referring to the owner of the site, he died 2 years ago now. his family dont seem to care anywhere as much as chance did.

    I was talking about digital outsider. I didn't know about the site owner, that really sucks. I can't believe there isn't a way to archive the forum info, but I don't have even the slightest clue how they work myself.

    Thanks, Mitch. These cars have been my lifeblood for a long time and it's hard to imagine all of this data disappearing overnight in the event we lose hosting or the domain runs out.

    I didn't know Chance was the owner, and actually, I didn't know he passed away. That's been two years now. wow. I guess I've been very out of the loop. I assume Delana is footing the bills for the forum now? In case she, or anyone else responsible sees this, I am more than willing to do what is necessary to keep the forum running in the event that there is no interest on your side. I've been an administrator of W-body.com for closing in on a decade now, and it is our mission to preserve what community knowledge there is about these cars. I can be reached via e-mail: shaun(at)w-body(dot)com.

    Someone still in the field pointed me the FTP direction to collect the site's files. (not entirely sure what that means)

    Does anyone have access?
