Unable to post to SPF

I'm unable to post to my thread on SPF and yet, unfortunately can continue to post on the political page in the paddock

Can this be reset to allow me to post again?

Re: Unable to post to SPF

As I understand it, SPF decided to skip out on paying the bill to sponsor their own forum here.
If you can send me a link to the thread, I will move it to the build logs forum.

Re: Unable to post to SPF

Randy, can you email me how much it is per year? Maybe I can get some of the other SPF owners to sponser it so we can keep it in the SPF section. You'd think with all the price increases Lance could swing it.

Look at the navigation bar close to the top of this page and find the link. To “Support GT40s.com”.

Randy,

No, that is for a "supporting vendor' (which I am) a Sponsored sub forum is more. Perhaps Ron can elaborate.

Which thread from the now non-existent SPF forum?, if you go into your user profile statistics it will show posts and or threads started by you, scroll down those until you find the relative posts ( eg if your post was about chassis it will now be in that section ) , it should state which thread/section it has now been shifted to, have you tried to make further posts on any of those threads. PITA I know, but looks like that's the way its gonna be from here onwards.

Re: Unable to post to SPF

My user profile doesn't show the thread p2348 in the SPF forum that I started and have posted to multiple times. It's as if the SPF forum is archival only. This is a tremendous loss. Randy, could you move my thread to the build logs forum? Is it SPF that's delinquent? If so, I'm happy to call them up and chastise them for being a bunch of tight wad pinheads while jacking up the price on their cars 25k.

Re: Unable to post to SPF

Not sure SPF cares much about GT40s. Their bread and butter are Cobras. Maybe they'll stop making GT40s making the existing units instant collector items worth double.

p2348
I moved it and added SPF to the title for you.
SPF p2348

I have no idea how long they’ve owed the support - but long enough that Ron has given up hope on them.
When I get some time, I’ll start manually going through all the threads and move them to the appropriate forum. No content should be lost in the redistribution...

Re: Unable to post to SPF

I've not heard back from them in over a month at least. The bigger problem is it's like this every year and I'm out of steam messing with it. Either you do or do not want to contribute, simple matter.

I think it's time to disperse the threads and close the subforum. If someone at SPF gets back to us they can always be a forum advertiser with no subforum. I'm not convinced SPF brass understood the concept anyhow.

What we can do is enlist some assistance from volunteers that will help move the threads to the appropriate subforums. That way the information is preserved in a logical format.

You may be onto something, Mike. While at SEMA last year (and probably this year), their focus was with the Cobras. The GT-40 on display there, and driven during the demo laps, was a disappointment/embarrassment to my wife and me. The fit and finish was poor, but the price tag was hefty. When they took it on the demo lap it suffered from engine oil burning off the headers, perhaps a leaking valve cover gasket? It was smoking out of the heat extractor and rear of the car, with thousands of people there to witness it all. The Cobras, however, ran real well and entertained the crowd and ride alongs for hours.
