Welcome Back to 206info Site News

A New Start

Most of you will be aware that the site was offline for several weeks. Our previous host suffered a catastrophic system failure and wiped the entire site, including backups. Everything was lost, so the site you see here today is an entirely new one. While it may look the same as before, it has actually all been remade from scratch.


What happened to my account?

Unfortunately everything was lost, including all user accounts, all forum information (topics and posts) and all other related information (garage entries, map locations etc). You will need to sign up again with a fresh account.

We recommend using the same username that you used previously, to help other members know who you were.

What happens now?

While we’ve all been hard at work to get 206info open again for you all, the real test comes in the following months – we need to repopulate the forum with useful information – and we need your help!


What about all of the knowledge and resources the site had?

While the old 206info as we know it is gone, we have put a plan in place since the site went down to save as much of the information as possible.


And Finally…

In short, what happened to 206info in January 2010 is, in fairness, pretty crap. The site had been running on the old servers for 5 years, and had nearly 16,000 members. That’s not something you can fix overnight when it disappears. I know it won’t be an easy task to get 206info back on its feet, but I hope with your help that it does.

Its good to be back… happy posting!
