Where is everything?!

Where did all the threads go?! I came here to look at the brakes pages, but everything's gone!

Not gone. Just dormant. Just hiding. Just waiting till the time is right. The info is not gone, only suppressed for the time being. An effort is being made to post up the old board as "read-only" to use as a reference.

Glad to see you got the place man, I know you had an interest in setting a board up, and couldn't quite get the same results despite your hard work. Maybe this was the piece of the puzzle that was missing. Beats a lot of other people that could have gotten it, who wouldn't have left the site in far rougher condition. You obviously wish to rectify many of the issues previously held by this web site and start a new chapter in its history. It is nice to see you are doing things in a very timely manner, I am sure it is a good deal of work for you.

That being said, [Rule 21 Violation]. You have a board but you have no user base hardly as of yet, data that is in shambles and needs a great deal of work to get serviceable data from due to organizational issues and completeness alike, and other problems due to Will letting the site stagnate for an extended period of time. That being said you have a lot of the original data, the good domain names that will let you attract new users and a few other strengths on your side.

Congratulations on your purchase, I hope this works out well for not only you but the community at large. It is to this end I thank you for taking action, and beseech you to consider my message and thoughts of unity.

Thank you Roboto. You and I go way back. You know I had the best intentions purchasing these domains. I want to see the Astro community back together again.
I love the idea of taking the old Ikonboard data (which I have) and any other related forums out there and combining all the data into one large community. Lets make it happen people!

Good to hear. I was really worried that this site was done. There was a LOT of good info here that served many well, and I was mortified to think it was gone for good. I hadn't visited for a while, then I came because I was in a tight spot with my van sitting up on a jack. You can only imagine my surprise.

The astro is one of those vehicles that people will be restoring 40 years from now, and this site has helped to keep a lot of them on the road. It's also helped many of owners to realize what they have in their van...
