Don't count on it. The admin running this place has been long gone for years. The two moderators are keeping this site running with a roll of duct tape and a package of rubber bands, but that is about it around here.rpedersen said:Will the OdyClub stickers ever be back in stock for members to purchase? Thanks.
Unfortunately, the gallery, tech, info, links & store sections haven't been updated for years because the two moderators (dvpatel & chiody) don't have access. If you look at the gallery & tech sections, nothing new there since 2001. Admin last logged onto this place on 8/20/2006.rpedersen said:Wow! I did not know this. Well SPECIAL THANKS to the two moderators who are keeping this ship afloat. I tell everyone about this forum and how excellent the members are to one another.
Jim F (I forget his last name) from Houston. If you search the feedback forum, you will find his full name, address, email, and even some pictures of his house with an Ody in the driveway (from Google Maps). Many from here have tried to contact him, and some have even offered to buy odyclub from him......but no response.mindoro said:Any idea who is the Admin and why 2006 was their last time here?
I too was surprised to see why no add'l info has been added in the gallery, etc.
Its SFGadgetGuy. He's in the Decals thread towards the end.Kscha41 said:There is an odyclub member on here that makes and sells this stickers. I forget his username, but hopefully someone remembers.
Its not at all about the skeleton crew. Rather, its about upgrading the ancient forum s/w. A few thrads on that in the feedback section.whoa said:Also noticed that with a skeleton crew, the spammers have been let loose in the chicken coup.

At the other forum I am an admin at, we have the latest countermeasure where it automatically puts spam in a awaiting moderation queue and sends the admins and mods a PM. You can delete all posts and ban the spammer in one page if it still slips through. It takes a while on here if a spammer posts 20 threads in 20 different forums.
There have been plenty of offers to take over the site, but Jim won't hand over the keys....but you are welcome to reach out to him, once again!Dirkdaddy said:Hey, I don't think I have the computer ability to do it, but I live in Houston and maybe able to raise this guy if someone wants to run it. perhaps just changing the login routine so the spammers can't get in so easily would be a good step.
