    Theres a legit reason to open it up. Thought you were just gonna open a perfectly good one. :) Had to help someone fix their car’s gauge cluster after the “expert” he sent it to effed it up. Bent some of the shafts on the stepper motors trying to pry off the needles the wrong way. One reason I don’t recommend doing that just for the sake of change.

    Honestly, I don’t think its worth it. Too many things could go wrong with how delicate some guage setups are.

    Software itself works fine here, just site is pretty quiet. FOrums may make a comeback. I know a lot of people who are getting sick of FB.

    Thanks. A photography board I’m on recently changed forum software (to one designed and coded by the owner himself) and put a 30 day log in time max for “security”. Sadly the forum software he wrote is not real user friendly. Site went from being real active to pretty dead right afterwards.

    Tired of the same asskissers getting away with what ever they want.

    How about making it keep you logged in until you want to log out? Kinda silly to have to log in on a regular basis. Even when “Remember Me” is checked, it still logs me out in about 2 weeks.

    IL has it on the interstates. No one obeys it, not even state cops.

    Using real names can place certain people and their families in danger due to their career (police officers for example) with the current atmosphere. If someone wants to use their real name, that’s their choice. The number of police officers I have as friends on FB, none use their real names anymore. They all have changed their screen names on FB to fake names.

    Wouldn’t give up too much hope. From what I’ve been seeing on FB, its use is dwindling (at least from what I’m seeing). Especially withthem trying to “enforce” their real name rule. Know a few cops on there and they all use fake names for obvious reasons.

    If they are Vertical Scope owned sites, I wouldn’t be surprised. Still a mod on Cycleforums and basically I do nothing but delete spammers. They hid the members list because, this is exactly what the admin at the time said, “We don’t want spammers getting everyones email”. I was thinking “are you freaking serious? members email ISNT listed in the list”. Havent heard from a VS “admin” for damn near a year. Been asking for help for I don’t know how long. Don’t know why I keep deleting spammers since theres pretty much no one there anymore. Other than SBN (athough I’d rather hit myself in the head with a hammer than visit that place again) and a couple other forums they bought, most have withered and died. But it was funny how they bought all these powersports sites right as Facebook was killing off forums. Hahahaha

    Wouldn’t say vBulleting is a relic. The new version really sucks though. The local forum uses vB 5.1 “connect”. Really should be called vB 5.1 BETA. Facebook did a number on forums.

    Will this help get it back? Dunno. Many of the bike forums I’m on pretty much died. Cycleforums, eSportbike, Chicagolandsportbike and Madisonsportbikes pretty much dead other than a few. Wisconsinsportbikes is gone. Some I just got tired of dealing with morons (Insane Speed, Cycleworld, R1-forum). Cycleforums was unfortunately the victim of Vertical Scope panic. Now its just a couple members left and spammers constantly signing up.
