FACEBOOK Has Taken Over

Hi all,

So as with most of the "old school" internet forums like this one, activity has dropped off as Facebook Groups have become more popular.
Facebook is no where near as good as forums for on-going discussions, or techy chat, but has won on convenience & popularity.

There are no plans to close this forum as yet, but it'll be far more quiet from now on.
If you ask a question or similar in here, it may take quite some time to get a reply.

To find us on Facebook see our:

GROUP (general club chat): https://www.facebook.com/groups/cccsagroup/

Some people don't and/or wont do facebook. (or any social media for that matter)

if there were by chance plans to close forum in the future, maybe it could be archived here --->archive.org

Well, those people are probably missing out on all the other auto events that happen around Adelaide too.
Like it or not, everything is on Facebook now. If you're not on it, you're missing out :(
We (the club) do also have the SMS's that we send out for every meeting and event, but you need to be a club financial member to receive those.

IMHO there is no real need to archive this forum for longevity anyway.
It has never really been popular enough, or have enough content to be worth going to that trouble.
It's not like the Toymods forum which is a massive wealth of information.
But, i run this forum on my own server, out of my own pocket, and i have no plans to stop doing so.

I had no idea you were running your own server, that's cool.
