As you can imagine, the Volvo Penta AQ series BOC members, as well as myself, are rather disappointed when we now attempt to use the Volvo Penta AQ series frequent Q's A's Vault thread.
I spent quite a bit of my free/no cost time putting this thread together over the years, and all in the name of helping our AQ series owners.

Click on my hyperlinks that should be leading us to past BOC threads that were once very helpful.
Here's what you'll see:

If threads are being deleted because they have no value this would be a good one to delete.

It's not the hyperlink to the main AQ series thread that is the issue........, it's all of the hyperlinks that I created to the past BOC threads that were relative to the AQ series help.
These are the thread links that no longer work.

You know, there's still a good amount of people running these AQ series drives, and having gone through some of that information, there's a lot of really good and informative stuff in there.

Just an observation.

Yep there is some good info in there :) . However it contains more links that are not broken YET :ohmy: . In addition more posts are created daily with some really good information, but again with links to other sites, other image providers, youtube ..... :sick: My point to Rick, several times now, and others was that if its important enough that you don't want to loose it then either copy and paste the text your linking to, upload the photo here or better yet create an article that is searchable. It is unfortunate that the links don't work but at the end of the day the links don't work and no amount of continually pointing out that the old links don't work will fix them, they will continue to just not work. :(

1..... I fully agree. These drives aren't going away anytime soon.

2...... Matt, that is not so. Try activating a few of the links to past BOC threads. Most do not work any longer.

1.... Past tense.... Was!

2.... I've not seen these unbroken links to past BOC threads.
Many of my other links appear to be working.

3.... My point to the responsible party is...... why or how would any of us have known that these were at risk?
And if we had been notified of a possible loss, perhaps one of us would have done a back-up of some sort.
I do not recall any such warning being presented!

4..... These topics were searchable at one time.

5.... Yes, it certainly is!

6..... If that is the BOC's attitude, we just leave it alone. :S


Let's say that YOU spent countless hours putting an informative thread together, and not only put it together, but YOU put it in the "Vault" section, where YOU thought that it would be safe and available for years to come!
YOU later learn that most.... yes MOST of the hyperlinks to past BOC threads no longer work.

Would you just chalk it up and say.... "oh well.... it was good while it lasted"?
Or would you be more inclined to be curious and want to learn what in the heck happened to all of YOUR efforts?

As an onlooker who had a vested interest in that thread, it would appear that a fair amount of disregard was given to the importance of it.

Not sure if I missed Rick's point but if the link is gone, it is gone. We can not resurrect a link that no longer exists... Dave posted some reasons behind why it may have happen. To think someone went in and deliberately deleted the links is not true. Due to the transfer from the VBulletin to this software many older posts were lost. They are gone. We had many issues with the company we used to attempt to salvage the older posts on VB... we got what we got... they are GONE...

Dave's suggestion is a good one. OP's ought to take the time to transfer their older threads they want to keep and put them in an article format. That way, they won't be buried based on last date of posting. It would also make them easier to search for information...

Bottom line, they are gone... not available, not coming back... Only suggestion would be to look for the same info OP posted on other sites and repost here in an article format... its not hard...

In the mean time... forget about the lost links... they are.... wait for it....... GONE...

get over it...

Web links are transient at best. An analogy would be you writing a technical paper and instead of publishing your references you instead drew maps to where the referenced books were on the library shelves. Books get moved, or discarded, libraries get moved, the maps soon become meaningless.

3. The responsible party would be the Hackers that brought BOC to it knees. I am sure the next time they hack BOC they will give plenty of notice :whistle: As for the total disregard as to the importance of the information you are correct and I have lodged a complaint with the BHB, Better Hackers Bureau. I am sure we will not have a repeat of any such disregard :evil:

Another analogy...

I spend a fair amount of money on a fireproof safe, with a 30 minute guarantee. In the safe I keep important papers, firearms and jewelry. Through no fault of my own, my natural gas water heater explodes, setting my house on fire. It takes the VOLUNTEER fire department 45 minutes to get there and get the fire under control. But after 30 minutes, the important papers burn and the firearms and jewelry are heavily damaged. Wait for it...

THE PAPERS ARE GONE!

The VOLUNTEER firemen did the best they could, and had I known, I could have made copies and bought a 60 minute rated safe... ;)
