Trouble with Patrol 4x4.com


Recommended Posts

I hardly go on there now, this forum is moving nicely and hardly anyone is posting on patrol4x4

Going down hill very fast

I think that's because Hardly anyone CAN get in on the other forum let alone post.

Dunno why people are going to other forums when this one is here.

It could be the new and much improved version of the old one with a different address.

Question will be how long the other one stays down and how many people will bother going back.

Not much use posting where the info is going to be lost.

I just had a look. 34 new posts since I last logged in.

Looking through them, I don't see a single one that required and of the information there that people seems to make so much fuss of.

Anything worthwhile I may have to say I'll put here where the chances of survival look a whole lot better.

Things are starting to sound pretty dodgy over there.

I asked what was going on with the forum and was told to contact a mod direct.

WTF is the big deal with telling people what is going on unless they are doing something dodgy or underhanded?

Does anyone know if there are any tricks to gaining access or control of a site legally if the owner can't be contacted?

The way things are being put, it's really starteing to sound like a case of "we can't get permission so given how we want it so bad we are just going to take it. "

I would hope that's not the case but it seem like either the members are being strung along and a lot of BS blown their way or there are underhanded plans afoot.

Pitty there is no info to clear things up.

You cannot take over any website without the owners approval. You can secure a domain name if payment for the name lapses, but you don't get the content. I think I know what they are trying to do and they are being discrete about the whole process.

Been a member on patrol4x4 for several years ,It's always been a great sorce of information an generally a great forum. Like many others I'd be dissapointed to see it fall,

But everyone bagging it will not help it's future .

I joined here because i'm keen to support this forum just as much as the old one ,being a new forum there's bound to be new knowledge from people who were never on the old forum,

Be nice to see less bitchin an more supporting for both forums , otherwise we might as well all go an join outers.

There were no plans for a take over, there have been numerous offers for a buy out from the owner, but he refused many an offer. Its a damn shame to see JET-6 chuck in the towel, but there comes a time when you know you have to step aside and let it takes its own course.

RIP Patrol4x4.com, your content and friends will surely be missed!
