6gc has been on and off for weeks now, this is the entire site backup in a downloadable format. You can use this holy book of Celica regardless of the site being up or not. It includes all forum posts aswell.

I propose we open another 6gc site, and start fresh, and have a link for this download.

Not sure of the cost of operating another site. I know most dont want to join other existing sites.

but www.thereal6gc.net would be good.

www.cheelas6gcplace.net

just throwing it out there. this place crashes, its hard to get all together ... Just saying...

Out of curiosity, I briefly looked into it one of the previous times the site crashed. The IP.Board - the InVision Board software - that this site runs on, is no longer free. I don't know, but I believe that the old version that 6gc.net runs on was free at the time this forum was commenced. So, to transition all the threads, if that's even possible, would require purchasing the board software.

No idea how much the board costs, but on top of that would be hosting and domain name cost (looks like currently with NAMECHEAP INC, possibly hosted there as well). Then, I have no idea what legal implications may or may not be of just blatantly downloading an entire site and copying it, or whether anyone would care.

There may be other free boards for use by forums, but then the question of how to migrate the data would come up. Again, don't have an answer.

If you ask me, the easiest would be for someone to take over the existing site. But, my understanding is that Coomer has been not reachable for some time.
It's entirely possible the site will permanently cease to exist some day if whomever pays for hosting and domain name stops paying.

EDIT: Looked up the site on whois. Registry Expiry Date: 2020-02-16T10:52:42 - unless it's on auto-renewal or something, this may be the date the site goes dark.
