Ok, which one of you...

Recommended Posts

...got in and blitzed TT's forums ?

Seriously, that kind of sucks for them to have two years worth of forum data vaporize into the atmosphere like that.

Was it an intentional thing or just a major meltdown ?

Sounds like TT should have had a better backup solution.

Cal?  The competition?  No, not at all. If anything, our sites complement each other.  I've met Cal several times and consider him a buddy. I wouldn't wish this on him at all.

Ouch.  Thats a major bummer.  I wasn't the biggest fan of the TT forums, but there was still a bunch of good info there.

Glenn, make sure you back up your backups that are backing up the backed up backups....

I really like the TT forums. It blows what happened. There are some INSANE people on that forum. Like insane. People spend $500 on a Steez, then spend another $500 getting it tricked out. Crazy! But, it's just like people that deck out their truck, collect guns, cigars, or play golf alot. Just another hobby.

I did notice it started to make me want to paint reels and stuff of that nature, but then I took a step back and realized that was beyond "fishing" and somewhat took the fun out of it. I found I would be so focused on the "perfect" rod or reel I wouldn't think like my little bass mind normally does, which catches a whole lot more fish. Heck, I want to get a Dobyns DX744, but when I "take a step back" and look at it from the perspective of "I just fish ponds, and I'm 17" it seems ridiculous. I caught my PB on a $70 combo. I doubt a ~$500 combo would catch me any more fish, even though it would be 3 ounces lighter and a lot more sensitive. -rant-

I've often wondered if the majority of folks on there even fish, or if they just like playing "dress up" with their rods/reels.

I've been on there a while now, but I rarely post. I prefer to search through the old posts to get the info I want. Now that the old posts are gone, I'll probably spend far less time there.

Lots of guys on TT fish.  Including myself. :)

Sucks that this happened to them.  I'm sure the content will be rebuilt in no time.  :)
