Crap! I was hoping to close this forum due to inactivity someday. Hopefully Bomber will come back stronger than ever.

In the interim, welcome here everybody!

I just got word that Fin and attorneys are working to restore the Bomberonline.com forums. No idea if this will take hours or weeks.

Until the Bomber situation is resolved the long term status of the Forum will be uncertain and the need for this venue will remain. Thanks Corey for keeping us in the loop of information.

Thanks for putting this together Corey! Did anyone have luck obtaining some backup of the old forum? Hoping and praying that Fin can get it back up sooner rather than later.

Worried about the sport too now, a great way to kill a small niche group like us is to take out the community foundation of communication.

Exactly! That's what drove me to create this place. Too many good people doing an awesome sport to not have some central meeting place.

I took the precaution of downloading copies of the Tech articles off the Bomber site. The forum content is a different matter altogether.
Use the Internet Wayback Machine and explore what it has saved.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

At least some of content can be delved into beyond the original 61 snapshot pages between 2015 and 2017.

Man, I started reading and posting on BOL 18 years ago! Very grateful to have this alternative (thanks Corey!), but I hope that BOL gets back up eventually.

Is there something I can do in my profile to fix the French button text, the posts overlapping avatars, the microscopic font, etc?

Button: I hope to fix that this weekend with custom buttons.

Avatars: Make your avatar 150 x 150, and encourage your friends to do the same. I've changed it so new avatar uploads are limited to 150p wide now.

Font size: Trying to figure that one out as well, should have time this weekend.

Soooo, this kinda sucks. What the heck happened to Bomber? I need to order some parts and I'm not too encouraged by recent developments.

Marty,

Depending on the part you need, Donek and yyzcanuck both stock Bomber gear. I picked a pair of TD3 SI's off Donek last week and they were shipped that day.
