This forum has been created in anticipation of the demise of our beloved forum FuckCombustion.
As many members know, vtac, the founder and sole administrator of FC, has been absent for many months—since April 14, 2018 to be exact. Unfortunately, he did not leave anyone with enough power to perform several important administrative tasks. This situation has slowly deteriorated to the point where we felt we either had to abandon the site and the community, or take drastic action. We therefore built a lifeboat.
These are the problems FC is facing:
All attempts to contact vtac have failed. If FC goes offline for any reason, this community ceases to exist. With reluctance, we have bought a new domain and purchased the latest version of the forum software. We are building a new forum that fixes the problems. We are striving for a familiar look but with the many enhancements that come with the latest software. There will be differences but we hope they will be positive.
One difference is sponsorship. While FC has several sponsors and we know some of them would gladly provide financial support, we do not have sponsors and we are not looking for sponsors.
Meanwhile, we will try to get everyone moved over to the new FC as best we can. This will not be easy and we will have to leave behind much of the vast knowledge base that has built up at FC. We can only keep our fingers crossed that it does not disappear, but realistically, that is the most likely outcome. There have been efforts by some valued members of the FC community to back up the content, but at present we do not know how to integrate this into NewFC. If we can, we will try to make this available in some form.
Thanks for reading this, and let's all try to make the best of our new home.
