Default MotorWorld.net is back up and running!

Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Bryan and I bought the forum/site/database from Jabba. I know the site has been shut down for over a year and also wasn't very active for a while before it was shut down, but I hope to change all that. I want to get this forum active again. I know it may never be as active as it was in its hay day, but will give it a try. As you can see, I already created a new skin/look for the forum and plan to do alot more.

If you have any ideas/thoughts to make this forum better, please let me know here.

Also, if you are having problems logging in or forgot your username or password, please feel free to reply back to the email that was recently sent out and we will get you taken care of.

Thanks again.

Bryan

Wow, haven't been here since 2007 when a handful of users broke off due to some falling out (can't recall details anymore).

Had no idea whether this site was still running. Good luck to you. If I could make one suggestion, I know running the site cost money and makes sense to try and make even, but being greeted by pretty big banner ads straight away isn't too appealing. It might drive people away immediately, maybe try and get some activity back first.

How about a projects section? People post threads and keep them updated as changes are made? I am on a few Renault related forums and have a threads on those.

Ok, I will set one up if you are willing to post your build thread in it right away. Post your build thread in the General chat and when you are done, I will add it to the new project section.
