F1Onboard has merged with us

#1

Post by PTRACER »

Last year, Farzad's F1 Gallery closed and the members joined our Fastlane family. Now F1Onboard.com is doing the same.

Unfortunately, we're unlikely to see the same influx of members as we saw after FMB closed, especially as two of the remaining members are already here. However, I have a copy of the F1Onboard video archive and the forum will follow soon. Within the coming weeks/months, the forum and the videos will be slowly uploaded to our servers so they will be accessible once again.

I will copy/paste the admin's post from over there:

We're online since 2001.
The glory years in the beginning were accompanied with hard work, a lot of users and a lot of used bandwidth for that time.
Even though we were forced to give up on releasing our famous and loved video clips by the end of 2004, the user base for the message board was still big and there have always been busy discussions, forum games and so on.
However, the past years have shown a hugely decreasing active user base.
Now it's time to say goodbye and thanks for all the years.

I have decided to merge with another site, therefore this message board will survive as an archive on http://www.the-fastlane.co.uk as soon as it's switched off here.
As soon as this is the case, you will be automatically forwarded to http://www.the-fastlane.co.uk.

Welcome everyone! Hope you enjoy it here. My own interest in motorsport has returned greatly by having more people to have conversations with - hope your own interest increases as well!

Welcome!

As a previous active member of FMB and F1 Onboard it's clear that I am the problem here. Apologies for the future closure of this website.

The merge is complete. We now host F1Onboard.com's forum here as a Read-Only archive: http://www.the-fastlane.co.uk/f1onboard/

F1Onboard's video collection will also be uploaded and put back online over the next few weeks. Part 1 (incl. all videos from 2000 to 2002) will be uploaded later today.

@manny @LaraCroft2016 (aka Starfire) - If you know anyone else from the board and have their contact details, feel free to encourage them to come join us!

The 'F1Onboard' theme is now active. It's about 95% complete, with some odd bits here and there I can't fix right now.

Some things, like the rank images, can also never be changed. They are universal throughout all themes and this is the only dark one.

We are the The Fastlane. Your Forum distinctiveness will be added to our own. Resistance is futile.
I am very sorry if you find my posts long and boring, I like to type and often go off on a tangent.

I don't really see that I've done anything that hasn't been beneficial to everyone, but if that's how you feel about it :down:
