Pleased to hear that you havnt thrown the toys out of the cot as I put it, and even more pleased that there is a chance that the original forum may not be a write off, As it takes me forever to post one picture let alone re-do everything that I had on the forum, before everything crashed.
please also dont be offended if you dont see me on the bebo site, I guess im too old for things like if it aint scrapin it aint low enough and other such stuff that I consider crap, like poppin tyres and f@#k the cops etc.cant waitfor the forum to be up and running again to re-unite the serious datsun inthusiasts, and not as Chris put so perfectly a bunch of twats in one place.

Get someone to look at DOCNZ database and get that thang going again and copy/paste posts over to there.

Everythings onwards and upwards from here.

Can I make a suggestion that I've seen work on other forums?

Load the DOCNZ database into a forum and lock it. Keep a link to it on the main page so it can be used as an archive for searching info. Fixing db errors is a never ending story, this is the only way to move forward.

Start a new fresh database with better forum software (invision power board etc), cost $180 US or similiar to purchase outright and is alot more stable and has better features and support.

With regards to people making donations, this would work if you guys took the next step and created an official car club (DOCNZ), assigned club president, secretary, events co-ordinator etc. Other benefits stream from this, it does take some management, but i'm sure 1 night a month you guys could put aside for a meeting and take meeting notes would work.

I'm going to step out of the other debates as I believe it's not going to get resolved.

Finally, before I'm told i don't know im talking about, I was actually lucky enough to get a chance to meet alot of the christchurch guys and they showed me a great day checking out there projects and a bbq at the end of the day (thanks again guys). Maybe next time I'll get to meet the guys up north...

Good luck with moving forward guys, this will make you a stronger club.

Vegie and I were texting each other every other week. Namely- Do you know when DOCNZ will be back up. Nothing more really. Maybe a virtual cry from time to time.

wow guys, had no idea this tension had been building behind the scenes.

I agree with 2doors Im not in for that kiddie Bebo shit, every 12 year old gangsta wanna be hero on there talks shit. At 27 maybe I am getting old. Nah fuck that, can still appreciate cars with out being a fuckwit wrong-kind-of-attention grabber.

Im happy with whatever happens, don't want any animosity between members, I want it to be the way things were before (cheese) its all about the Datsuns, not infighting about a damn forum, it will be sorted, if not there is nothing we can do but move on.

my 2 cents anyway......

I think personally it sounds like school yard talk.
Sort the site and get on with it.
www.discountdomainnames.co.nz is the go.
$27.95 plus gst
I believe that the site should be free but, in saying that i feel
there should be a yearly fee of Ten dollars to cover the basics.
T shirts and promotional items should be looked at also.
I understand what is involved and I also feel all opinions
should be left at home.

kind Regards

you mean.....http://www.discountdomains.co.nz ?
thats pretty steep for a domain name.....this one was only $13/year.
plus, www.datsun.co.nz is already owned and paid for, its not the domain name that DOCNZ has been having problems.
(from what it sounds like) its the database thats full of errors, which has nothing to do with the domain.

The site should most definately be free, noone seems to have debated that yet.
what people are asking, is if they can donate to help the cause....I see no issues with that.
but definately free to anyone if they want. 8-)
Glen never charged anyone for DOCNZ, and it should stay that way.....but donations could be considered

I think i will quit this club already it sounds like to many chiefs no Indians.
No one really cares about all this all the members care about are the social aspects
and their rides.

thats exactly what were trying to say here.
there is no need for any of this conversation to have even started.
simple fact is, this is a forum for the datto lovers in NZ, to come and socialise.
some people have taken offense to this, which has caused some problems is all
