v3m.org.uk? Purely for the wiki, not as any sort of rival for here, of course.

Yeah, absolutely. I'm very keen to emphasise that this should work alongside V3M, not as any sort of rival. It just happens to be hosted off-site in order to assist with "getting it done".

Totally agree - it would be interesting though to see if it could be set up as a subdomain of volvo300mania.com - wiki.volvo300mania.com would be pretty cool! I'll drop him an email but don't have much hope :lol:

Ye that seems very fair, perhaps if it was set up somewhere else we would only have to work on getting a link put in the main banner etc like retro rides

I've dropped Aymat a message to see if he can set up a subdomain, failing that we can just register a domain for it

There is always hope!! :D :D

Yeah sorry guys but my passion for the 300 series is now one of the lowest priority because of new projects in my life (house, wedding, children etc etc.... sm4 ), and on top of that I'm not doing the best job at his moment (worst place for traffic jams and more...) Time is a problem, the best proof is that I still didn't find a moment to repair my nice GLT... and I'm rarely in my wonderful new workshop! Shame :(

Subdomain should be possible, I'll check with the hosting!! Something as wiki.volvo300mania.com

Dude, no more Leuven :o I love going there, it's always stunning to look at (no Farrell... well, actually, yes... you have a point)

Aymat, whilst you are about, is there any chance of a limited access FTP account? We have a huge amount of stuff that should be being hosted on here.
