Interesting thread about CGCC on Pinball Revolution.....

Postby jasonec » Thu Oct 08, 2015 12:30 pm

I don't have an account on the pinball revolution forum, but came across this:

http://www.pinballrevolution.com/thread ... post-34026

You have to read the whole thread.....top to bottom.
Not trying to be a shit disturber or anything (that's Terry's job), but I'm not exactly what to make of it....anyone? Bueller?
My impression is that CGCC is hosted by the owner of Pinball Revolution, and he wants to force CGCC users to his site by sabotaging the CGCC website content.....

Someone else suggested sabotage and he said he's not going to do that.

THat said, PR has 20 members and CGCC has how many hundreds or even thousands?

pfffffttt!!

Hope this site gets backed up the years of knowledge would be a public shame to lose

4694 to be exact.

There is a big risk though that this site will stop functioning after a while. It's already showing problems related to outdated PHP on the front page.

CGCC could always just "reboot" - relaunch with a new website.

However, users would need to recreate their accounts (unless the user database could be gotten from the old server and migrated to the new one).

The existing forum posts could easily be copied at any time using a Website copier (much like the webcrawlers that index the web at http://archive.org) and hosted in an "Archive" section of a new CGCC website for reference.

Just my 2 cents.....

I'll have to talk about that with the owner of the site soon. We ARE well overdue for an update....

They only have 20 members? That's technically not a forum. That's a private sausage fest :D
