Having lost all past posts greatly diminishes the value of this site. I won't say this site is completely and utterly worthless now (at least it's a common place for FiveseveN owners to "meet" and discuss new issues), but I will definitely look elsewhere for FiveseveN information.
Im going to have to say that we have made great progress in the couple days we have been back. I would be willing to bet that this forum currently contains as much or more information on all aspects of the 5.7x28 round and systems than any other forum. If you were to spend your time elsewhere, I doubt u would learn much u couldnt get here (and if you did you would have to spend a lot of time searching through threads....whereas here we have neatly organized/reconstructed the most pertinent information into easy to find threads.)

I can pull the first post from the google cache, but everyone beyond that, not sure if we'll ever get it back.

I was just thinking about the long thread re Fuzzy's KB that I spend about two hours reading one night. It was an incredibly valuable thread. Those are the kinds of threads that appear to be lost forever. I'm sure there are hundreds of threads like that and, unless someone takes the time to recreate (at least the essence of) those threads, that information will likely be gone. The problem is that no one person could adequately recreate even one of those threads...there was so much back-n-forth and discussion of multiple viewpoints that it would darn near impossible to synthesize the information from one of those threads in such a way as to fully reflect the knowledge.

It's a shame. :?:

Yeah, I agree with this. This is a very friendly site. A lot of mutual respect going on here. When people disagree, people (almost always) disagree in a civil manner. Looking at ideas from opposing view points (in a civil manner) is extremely useful because it's the best way to get at the heart of a matter.

Is there a way to have google fix their results? Even before all this when you search for fivesevenforum, the .com came up top, and when searching fivesevenforum.net you get crap about "fives even forum" lol.


Soon we will be confused with Heinz :monkey:


O and :drool: at getting the :monkey: back.

Speaking of people that need to get caught back up with post whoring, wheres Slippy?

I would still take a Q&A with the members of this forum over the useless crap out there on the web.
Agreed.

About 15 years ago a colleague of mine was describing another coleague of mine's wealth of knowledge to a newcomer to our profession. He summed it up as "Joe [not his real name] probably forgot more about [topic] this morning while he was taking a dump than you know. Try asking him nicely."

:D

This forum will return to shine brighter because it is made up of great people, with patience and perseverance. In fact, I bet it will be better than before, organized, intuitive, thoughtful, humorous, polite and fair. :monkey:

True!

If all the old info was just cut and pasted no one would be able to jackup their counts by reposting it.
