Well, 1,700 emails were sent and it looks like about a dozen registrations from it. So many email addresses from 15 years ago are no longer used, so not a whole bunch of successful deliveries.

There's still about 300 microsoft accounts to send an email to(hotmail, msn, outlook). Microsoft doesn't trust unestablished domains so I had to jump through some hoops to get mail delivered to those accounts. Even now, I have to limit the mail to just a few an hour so they don't decide to block the server again. Maybe we'll get a few more of the original crew from the remaining email addresses.

Wow 1700!?! There were that many registered users?

Glad a few did actually register out of that, my guess is it is people like me who do not like FB as a format for information exchange/help.

Forums seem to be drying up and several local ones in my area went away over the years.

I will send Nate a note about this site and he does have a lot of VW knowledge.
He built a racing squareback his son is now racing in.

Did JT (or was it TJ) respond? He seemed like a good guy.

It's a dying format but just like all the other dying formats, there will be enough holdouts to populate a cozy spot. It's no longer a viable method of making your millions via advertising monetization but for a few guys to stand around the barrel and share VW stories, it's as good a time as any.

I've read some amazing threads of his over on the Samba. He's an absolute dynamo and his projects are a blast to follow.

I never heard back from JT and if I remember correctly, his email bounced(it's hard to keep track of that many bounced emails :D). A fun little nugget of trivia, he was the 4th person to register over at the old site and that's including the two admins of the site. He's about as salty as one could get :)

My hope was that the few I was able to tap on the shoulder would know a guy who knew a guy who.... that sort of thing.

It will be fun to see where it stands in a month or so when the dust settles. Maybe we'll have assembled a workable sandlot team.
