They had to shut down the registration due to the overwhelming demand from groupies and admirers asking for naked pictures of the moderators.

Hold tight, I'm sure one of them will see this post and grant you entrance.

Russ keeps a close eye on spambots and other rif raf... he will "open the window" every once and a while when he has time to swat the vermin that stand poised to race in and inundate the site...

Only wide people can get in there.

How wide is yours?

Better have measurements ready when Russ asks .......

Last year got gobbled up by my road bike, but I'm hoping to get back to some actual climbing this season, and less not climbing. So I went over to the WideFetish forum to seek inspiration the other night, but it wouldn't load. Still seems to be the case. Anybody know what's up with it?

Same here.

The FISH IT Support 800 number has a busy signal most of the time. I got through to the call center one time. They were helpful, but sounded like they were on the back patio having a margarita.

Godaddy did a server thingy on 12/22.... Forum and Gallery no longer work. I can't even get in. It was getting hard to keep up with the 3 posts a year anyway.


When the current hosting plan expires, the site will go black

Forum might be working now... gallery in the works. 2 hours with live chat at GoDaddy to sorta get it going again. Even they did not know what they did!

Nice work on the restore. Gdaddy seems to have their automation and backups set up pretty dialed for the average smf forum hoster.


Facebook killed the SMF forum. I'm waiting for the retro renaissance. Hold out!

the bummer is the gallery... there were tons of good pics in there and Godaddy said they cant restore or fix the problem they created since it is not their software.... huh? Neither is SMF but....

I will try to either upgrade the app, which will not upgrade right now without throwing a giant error log, or reinstall a fresher version on top and then try to import all the images.

It takes a lot a brain power when you are not that savvy with the terms or methods they are using. Might be like a 4 beer job.

I was just in there poking around, there is a lot of cool sh#t in there! Are you going to archive this? Sans photos sadly....

No archive in the plans... If you liked it then you should have put a ring on it...

Maybe I'll keep all the Jammer drama and turn it into a book about high level psychoses and the wide climber

Hoh man, I had forgotten about that, one!

I imagine you have the 'Shaun white' bouldering the Wyde at Woodson, photos on yer own hard drive somewhere.

Any chance of registration? Or is it dead? :)

Zero chance... we have already exceeded our 3 post a year limit with people giving the site last rites.

The only real thing to be gained by registering is that you can post some sort of question that can be answered here, or to see all the way out there porn that GoatBoySmells posted in the Members forum.
