I was a member of the MZ Riders Club at the time and originally offered to author pages on their website about Skorpions. Unfortunately, the Club had become quite hostile towards the later, post German reunification models, and I didn't even receive a reply to my offer from the Committee.
So that left mr. combo and myself to set up the website and collect information. Once it was up and running it proved to be quite popular with a number of people contributing articles and information to it.
Technology moved on and the online forum became more popular. I was involved in a couple of these, and although they were fun for a while, unless someone has the time and inclination to carefully moderate them, they end up full of spammers, or hijackers who use it to promote their own views or just use if for abusing people.
So the next move is to have a blog like this one. It's more 'one sided' than a forum as the owner posts the articles and hopes people reply, but it gives the owner the ability to filter out irrelevant and abusive posts. So far, this blog seems to be fairly popular and successful judging by the number of visits, so let's hope that I can continue to write stuff that keeps people visiting! Which is the thing that can't be said about my website. Over the last year the number of visits has diminished to a trickle, and I haven't had a comment left for over a year. It's up for renewal and I've decided not to renew it. This means that the website will disappear in the next 2 weeks or so. I've copied everything from it into my computer, so some of it might be regurgitated onto this blog.
So, 'watch this space' as someone once said.
