    ***** Community, 3S History and www.3sg.org ****
    Last month I started talking about 3sg.org and my plans for it. The site is up and some data has been recovered. Here are a few highlights:

    I want 3sg.org to be the hub site for the larger 3S community. How can it do that without being a forum or social site? By providing services and content. The first service is the start of a 3SG site network. I have (with lots of help from the guys on the forum) created a footer that can be added to any page. This footer will serve as a link from your site to the larger 3SG community. Their are several version and we'll have one that works with most hosting solutions. Contact me and I'll get you setup with the best one. (see the bottom of any page on the 3sgto.org forums or the bottom of 3sg.org for an example)

    Were you part of the community in 1998 or 1999? I've managed to recover and post about 80% of the original 3si forum. Check it out for a cool walk down memory lane. http://wwwboard.3sg.org/

    One of the first big 3S sites was 3000gt.com. It was also our first causality. While the work is far from finished I do have a semi functional version recovered. I home to have a better version up in a few days. http://3000gt.com.3sg.org/

    Once I finish 3000gt.com I'll be working Joe Gonsowski's Stealth tribute site.

    3SG.org is about more than just hosting old content. I want to host your content as well. If you run a 3SG related site contact me and we can get you hosted for free. (DISCLAIMER larger sites with forums or other server intensive process may not be able to be totally free. You'll need to either run the 3sgto sponsor banners or pay a tiny amount to cover the extra cost)

    ***** Clkassifieds Verification *****
    Their are many verifications hanging waiting for final approval. Most of these are wanting for a response from you. Because of the way that the verification forum works I can not post a regular reply in your thread. I have to edit your post and leave a note in it. If you applied and have not been verified keep checking your thread to see if I have left a note.

    We don't get that many verification requests so I only do them once a week at this point.

    As always thanks for your support.


    If you ever have any ideas on how to make the site better please let me know.
