Is it possible to recover some of our own threads from the deleted General Discussion Section?
For example, "Is this historically correct".

a dedicated 'Restoration' section
I think this is a fantastic idea. Lots of valuable information in the restoration threads and they can sometimes be hard to find.

General Discussion forum has been renamed to "MB GPW Restoration Projects" and has been moved
to the bottom of the "G503, WWII Jeeps, Willys MA, Willys MB, Ford GP, Ford GPW, Bantam BRC" section.

Much obliged. Still some more of the bad actors need to be weeded out though.

to remove the general discussion forum is a horrible move. its the one thing i enjoyed the most. politics have always been off limits here. what a step backward.

Agree with Horrocks (Sept 25, 2020). There is so much great knowledge here but kind of buried within the various Tech sections. A dedicated Restoration Info section would be extremely helpful and reduce time spent searching other areas. Please, maybe?? :D
