Relaunching theecto1.com

Earlier this year I purchased theecto1.com from its original owner, and am now looking to relaunch the site. Sadly almost all our original research is gone/scattered all over the internets, so I am enlisting the help of you all, if you'd like to do so. I know nothing about message boards, know enough about website building to break something, and not enough time to gather all the resources needed. So, I think a relaunch would be an awesome group effort. I know this is all vague, but I'm all about collaboration. So, who's interested?! 😀

I’m in. But- a lot of what I learned came from your build. So... I’ll help if I can.

Ahem.... I USED to run ECTO-135 ....back in the day it was the Premier Ecto site out there. Replica owners interviews, Types of parts, where to get them, measurements, etc... But, Most of my info was toasted in a HDD failure in 2014, but Its still out there. Its not Proptopia, but its still good. Another old user you might want try to get a hold of FROM this forum (havent seen him in forever) is River Of Slime.... He knew the 1A inside & out. Another person called Dean Newman has an amazing Ecto-1a. PM ME.

I remember your site. I've spoken with Dean a couple times. I'll PM you in a little while. River of Slime was a great resource for me when I first started doing my research. What I'm struggling with right now is not having the time to gather everything we recorded over the past decade plus. I used the site as basically a repository for everything I did/recorded and then when it was shut down it all disappeared.

You might see if Martin Caron can help, too?

Martin and I are close acquaintances, he was one of three people I first reached out to. He's pretty busy...

Old topic I know... But did this ever gain any traction?

I've reached out to so many people asking for help, but it always falls through, even when I'm offering to pay for services. That's where we stand right now.

Im sorry to hear that. Why did the original site close anyway?

Didn't renew the domain name for some reason. Most likely due to the very little traffic the site was getting at the time.
