Tripod is just a mess. They contacted me and said they cancelled the old ElantraGTClub account because they screwed something up. They took money out of my Paypal and claim they didn't. That company is a mess. Now I have no access to all the files and folders as they cancelled my account. Their phone number is disconnected.

Fuck them. Looks like the original site is no longer under my control and I no longer own the EGT domain cause of their incompetence. Sucks, but I'm glad to not be dealing with the Tripod BS.

Yes, a part of our site is gone but we still have this forum community. smile.gif

Well that sucks. There was some good info there as well as some fun topics.
Have you opened a dispute with Paypal about it?
I know you have had lots of issues with Tripod in the past.

So stuff like the DIY section is gone? Ouch. Hope you can find a way to resolve that without driving yourself to your wits' end. I would definitely get hold of Paypal as well and dispute them taking money out while cancelling your account. signs-grrr.gif thumbsdown.gif mad.gif

Dorks. They've been nothing but problems for several years now if memory serves me. Just as well I suppose but damn if all those DIYs weren't a great feature.

I contacted Paypal. The email associated with Tripod no longer exists. It's done.

A big shout-out and thumbs-up to Mitch for digging up some of the DIY projects and adding them to the Wiki, so that our members can still access them!

And a Youtube page...

And Twitter.

Now we just need people to come back. I have no idea where they went!???
