    Thanks for the clarification. I believe there should have been some sort of disclaimer posted before the site was taken down or was made unavailable.

    I say this because I've spent hours making valid posts, and uploading useful content, that I haven't posted anywhere else. Now it is as though I have nothing to show for all that time spent online. I have that odd feeling as though someone took my intellectual property rights away from me. Imagine your cloud e-mail hosting provider closing shop overnight will all your years of legal communication.

    This site does provide a "public service" for being able to permit us to exchange useful technical knowledge and experiences.

    I have no plans to shutdown TechJa. If Google or Microsoft would like to make a buy offer then thatís another story Seriously though, there are no plans at this time. My comment was in the context of my inability to spend the time that is required to keep it fresh and up-to-speed with social media trends. The traffic has obviously dwindled since itís hey day over 12 years ago and I feel responsible for that to the point of feeling like Iíve let you guys down. Keeping the site running is a net negative cash flow for me as the hosting fees arenít covered by any revenue but itís a cost that Iíve committed to bear to keep it running.

    I am open to your feedback and suggestions.

    Thanks.

    I understood this much. My issue was with what "GPRS Internet" said about the owner being "focused on other things now". If the owner isn't interested, one can simply hand over the login credentials for the subscription so that it can become "somebody else's problem". At least the site would still functional (once the hosting subscription is renewed and associated with a valid mailbox). I'd have probably liked to have bought the rights to that site (if financially feasible). There is revenue from sponsorship from groups like Skunk Nation, and the other car groups that could even possibly cover the annual costs.

    I think this perception stemmed from the restrictions being placed on the Classifieds section (to curb the scamming sales that took place back then and the arguing about the items that were priced). This may have been about the time that ShopinJa became popular.

    As mentioned, Wheels Owner has moved onto different things ... so Wheels fell to the way side..
    If you have a serious offer for it I can pass it onto the owner...

    I myself would buy it but not now... I would buy TechJamaica also..

    Interestingly I would consider a WheelsJamaica-type site but I'd have plans for it that would take it into an extended direction. Not sure how receptive the community would be for the new direction and having a site similar to WheelsJa.

    Regarding TechJa ... my ears are always open ...

    Wheels is no more, a new auto site is always welcomed... Even if Wheels was still up a new site would still be welcomed,.. once your site is unique and not a direct copy of another established site it's welcomed..

    BTW.. Carib Yard still up ?

    OK I may consider what I have in mind and how to juggle it.

    CaribYard ... define "up" Technically yes, the site is still online. Practically speaking, the site is dead from an activity perspective.
