Great Loss of Value

Post by Sven » 20 Aug 2008, 13:03

Past threads represented a wealth of knowlege on this (or, more accurately, the former FiveseveN) site and those threads made the former site extremely valuable for those looking for information and advice about the FiveseveN. 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.

Doesn't Kronos Management do backups?!?!?!

Please bear with us as we try to get the old data back. Google has a cache of the old website if you need data immediately, we will try and restore as much as possible.

To search for information on the old forum go to google and in the search field type:

Code: Select all

site:fivesevenforum.net SEARCHTERMS
Replace SEARCHTERMS with what you want to search for. When the results are displayed there will be a link under each result that says 'Cached', click it to view the cached page.

I have to agree with this sentiment, since I learned more about the technical merits of my favorite FN systems, its ammunition, accessories, tactics, and the regulations that affect our ownership rights here than anywhere else on the net. I won't be abandoning this site completely, since it's still one of my favorites . . . I'll just be making some adjustments.

Also hate to find out the hard way that this site was not backing up! Man, that's fundamental . . . or is that by design? Regardless, time to grab your bootstrap and if there's anything I can do to help, just let me know!

At this point in time all I have access to is the google caches of the site, we'll try and get as much of the essential info from the google caches and bring it to here. I imagine much of it will turn into a FAQ, wiki style maybe :).

As for backups... I can't say much, we might be able to get the old site back, but no promises at this point, we can only hope.

That is great news. There was a wealth of history in the old forum. Returning that here is fantastic. Thanks for your efforts!

Fuzz,

Just tried the Google search feature and since it's tied to the lost forum server, it comes up with the "forbidden page" prompt . . . so it doesn't seem to work just yet.

Will wait and try again later this evening. Maybe that's how I can help by being a tester. Let me know?!?

Good luck, man!

One thing to remember, the instant information is lost but all the knowledge/experience is still here. People will be very willing to answer questions again.

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

I feel the same way. The hard copy of the information maybe lost, but feel free to ask questions... we can't really pull the "use the search feature" card right now :lol:

Excellent tips and I didn't realize those threads were still cached. It might be worth some late night work to transfer some stuff.

I would have to agree.
Although we might not always saw eye to eye on everything, it was more of a family type atmosphere and the info we had here was gathered from a group effort of the great minds that collected here. It can be rebuilt. It can be made even better than what it was before.
It's just going to take time.

And hey look at it this way we are all starting out at 0 on posts. No one can complain someone got a head start and they can never catch the other persons post count. :lol:

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