i hope pirate survives, too many good tech threads/ classic story threads

Me too. I have never really wanted to leave, but the site does not function at all. What choice do you have.

I'm a visual dude; I like pics with build threads.


Since Pirate is going to the same format as FSB, I'll W.A.G. Pirate will lose at least a third of all it's pics.
Closer to half is more accurate.

maybe i'm way off the back, but was there an update to pirate today that caused a lockup?

Yes, a Canuck spilled his maple syrup on the server causing a massive pirate4x4.com melt down. Rumor has it we lost greg in the ensuing conflagration.:eek:

Looks like it's locked down but you can still load any page/topic....I doubt we'll ever see old pirate again.

*edit* glad to see that the irate4x4 link will have made it into the archive if it gets copied over lol

When they recently did the "upgrade" to JKO, no content was lost . . . just the formatting, smilies, look, feel, and character :homer:

I don't get VS business model... buy a successful forum and destroy it. Am I missing something? Is there $$$ to be made in killing forums?

Web traffic. They rake in a ton of cash from advertising, specifically Google AdSense. The site itself it's worth much, but the ads probably generate in the millions annually per site for very little effort or overhead.
