Those that know the history know the online division was doing a fantastic job running this until a past manager made a bad decision and seized control of it. Up to that point this was the end and be all of old truck history and tech on the net and to some degree still is though social media seems to have taken over. It caused so much discontent at the time we lost members and most of the key posters left in frustration and disgust. The search capability and content of this forum is a gold mine and should be preserved no matter what.

Good morning guys.

It is always good to hear the views of the membership, even when they are not in accord.

I do want to inform you that the problem with the ATHS Forum at the moment is 100% inter-connectivity. We have done nothing to/with the forum in a real way - but, what has happened: when we updated the website, the link broke to the forums and when we re-established it the system did not like the security.

We then upgraded the security - but the link has not been re-established.

We now have that fix with our outside tech experts, and thus it should be corrected soon.

I apologize for the inconvenience - but we are working on the link. As you have already noticed, you can access via a straight address, you just can't link in.



As for the website - it too is being upgraded by the outside tech team, and we hope to have it all back together in a few days.

THANKS!
Laurence Gration

Just Old Trucks, http://forums.justoldtrucks.com/Latest was formed about 8 years ago when this one started "circling the drain." Seems the "powers at be" here want this one gone and come hell or high water they will get their way, even if they have to screw up the home page so you can't find the forum.
There is very little here now days that isn't over on Just Old Trucks!

Well if the powers that be are scrapping this forum in favour of Facebook then I will be bidding you all goodbye if that happens.

I don't and won't be using that platform.

I usually check in every morning.. The favorites bookmark shortcut I had before continues to bring me here..
The "Big House" has gone Farcebook crazy!! And according to the minutes of the Jan BOD meeting, the discussion forums are going to archived and go away..
This new website is also a FARCE!!!! The member login has been replaced with a DONATE button!!! Could say a lot more BUT BUT!!!

Like Fred, I read but don't post very often.
I have tracked some vendors through posts in the past.

Here's the link that works for me (worked earlier) :
