I was thinking of starting a forum for us, and was wondering if there was any interest? Also I was hoping TonyR might lend a helping had, as its been about 12 years since I have done any programming. It seems like its not to difficult to upload on to a server the required software, but I just wanted back up in
case I got over my head, which I am sure will happen.

I thought it would be nice for us to have our own place, even though this one seems pretty dead at the moment. Also a place for locals to post, and have our own for sale section, we kind of seem to get lost on the TON website. Plus I think we would be able to better communicate, instead of Tommy driving back and for in front of my house texting me. Just kidding Tommy!

I was going to use phpbb, or myboards for the software, TonyR and recomandations, probably needs to be free? Im still searching for some cheap hosting, should not be to hard to find that, and I need to register a domain.

Other than that any advice, even if there is no interest I will probably still do it, as its something I have wanted to do for awhile, just need to re-educate my self on the coding lingo.

I have agreed to donate a server to the club but we are still working on finding a suitable host.

In the meantime, the domains bigcountryoff-road.com, bigcountryoffroad.com, and bcor.us are parked. Been trying to obtain bcor.org for years but it is registered through 2017 currently. I do have a backup of the club website as well.

I know the for-sale section on the old site was very underutilized, but the actual TON forum has been pretty stable and is a great place for the photo albums to reside.

Holler via PM if you want to brainstorm a bit. -TR
