I had been the main admin and top poster there for about 10 years, a member for A LOT longer, and had no clue the domain was up for grabs. My home computer went down for about a week and now that it's back up, I find that godaddy has it, and they will not put me in touch with the actual domain owner. If I pay their $120 "broker fee", they MAY be able to put me in touch, but won't say so for sure. And on top of that, I'll also need access to the site files in order to be able to save it. If anyone has an email address for Kramer, or a way to contact "customguru", please let me know. I want to buy the domain and find a way and a place to keep the V8S10.org forum going. Thanks!

You wouldn't happen to know their real life names would you?

Rick...Let's hope the files are still intact and this isn't some kind of cancel thing.

@Rickracer if its on godaddy, they have backups for 30/60 days. but after that if nothing happens, they start to get deleted. I have plenty of room on my server, if you need a place to put the files. If you can buy the domain again, it can be set up to point to a section on my server if you want to go that route

I modified your post to tag Rickracer. Hopefully he'll see it.

Kramer's last name is Kramer, but I don't know his first name. I knew customguru's first name, but can't remember it. If I gotta pay godaddy's broker fee to get access to the domain owner and be able to buy the domain I will, but hoping to be able to contact him directly.

If it was go daddy that hosted it, wouldn't they have the files?

Quick search shows "John Kramer 16463 Plank Rd. Sycamore, IL 60178-8711. "
That helps, the picture associated with that person looks like a pic I remember seeing at one time or another on the site, I just sent him an email.

He posted that info when asked about sending in payment for something or other. I found an archived page

Well, looks like the actual domain owner, (assuming it's Kramer), renewed the domain, and the site is back up! Yeah!!
