What happened to skibuilders.com?

Post by matiasricci »

Hello, I'm new to the forum and not very sure if this post is appropriate so sorry in advance if this may cause any inconvenience.
For the last couple of months, I had some trouble accessing the site (skibuilders.com, not the forum but the site itself).
I tried to contact the administrators with no success.
I would really appreciate anyone's help.
Thanks!
Matt

It looks like they are working on it but I wouldn't count on it being updated any time soon. Much of the information was outdated and not nearly as useful as what you find in the forums. I know the forums aren't too active these days but there is a wealth of knowledge to be found if you can spend the time reading as much as possible.

Thanks for your reply. Very much appreciated.
I will read the forums. Still, the website was so clear and so concise...
Thanks again,
Matt

Yea, some volunteers restored the forum and moderate it now, but the main site and it's content never got restored. The owner wanted to re-do it, but it hasn't happened yet.

You can find it all in the wayback machine though: https://web.archive.org/web/20181101111 ... lders.com/

I'll make a more general post with that link in it and sticky it somewhere.
