Is it me or has 'the other lot' been off-air for a long time?

I've never got the impression that the website and forum are a high priority for those running the club. Are any of the committee actually involved in it?
A missed opportunity in this day and age where the website is really the biggest shop window of any organisation.

I think there was a posting saying they would be moving over and so could be down but seem to recall they were just saying overnight or a bit longer. Certainly seems they may have encountered some gremlins.

:lol: :lol: oops you may be right there NorfolkVan - if we can cope without it for a week maybe we won't bother popping back much!

I've migrated over here from there, albeit over there for a short time only,
I have to say this forum seems rather more friendly and forward going, if that makes sense !

I had a chuckle at the "mission" statement at the bottom left hand side of the page. Jellymoulds, really?????????

Our aims are simply to promote the preservation and use of the postwar Morris Minor, 1.6 million of which were built between 1948 and 1971.

The MMOC exists to unite these people who have a fondness of these loveable jellymoulds, and those people who still use them as everyday transport.

Interesting to say the least. Have a look at the reason this site started under main categories "History & Foundation Facts"
Made me smile and brought back memories.
Enjoy this site guys :D
Regards to all.Dave

When we had our major upgrade just over three years ago ( was it really that long ago :shock: ), the forum was shut down for 24 hrs exactly (planned). I practised the procedure of the import with an exact copy of the site 3 or 4 times before doing it for real, just to be sure that everything would go smoothly and without incident when I did it for real. The new site was also tested for weeks before going live.
Next year I will be doing it again, with the new version of the forum that I am working on. :D

You are right though Dave, the reason this forum was started was because the dark side kept going down. 8)

Agreed, I don't know what else they can do though, apart from...
1. update the flippin message with something more informative
2. send an email to users explaining the situation
3. put something on the mmoc facebook page
4. add a link on the message that points to this site as an alternative. :blackeye:
I wonder if the delay is now due to getting someone in to fix the problem......

Cameron Shaw posted yesterday in answer to a discussion about said website on our Facebook page.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/morrisminorowners/search/?query=Is%20the%20MMOC%20web%20forum%20still%20out%20of%20action%3F

Hi all. Just noticed this thread. What has actually happened is that the whole office database and computer system has needed upgrading as well as the website updating and as this was too much work for the current Webmaster (an unpaid volunteer), an IT company was called in. I can assure you that no data has been lost but problems have occurred migrating the database and upgrading the software as the previous Webmaster modified the code which caused havoc when trying to perform the upgrade. I am told this is sorted now and the message board should be back early next week. Apologies for any inconvenience. Cam Shaw, MMOC Webmaster.
