The NEW official E36 OT Thread!!
 
Well it looks like this is the end.

I blame chad.




See sig for any clarification.

Jose, you have ONE JOB!

If this thread lives on forever, it will bother me that there is such blatant grammatical errors in this thread title.

I cannot be held responsible for my grammatical actions during times of mourning, or "no hablo inglés".

I'm interested to know who had the last post.

My sentiments exactly. Chad and Jared have probably been cooking this prank up since the thread's inception.

I went from around 1200 to below 500. I'm surprised I even had that many outside of OT. Oh well, at least I still have an avatar, and I get to relive those milestones again!

To be fair, OT pulled the whole forum down, THEN they pulled OT down. :rofl:

That's probably the end of an era for the monster thread, we finally figured out what the breaking point of the forum was. Maybe from here on out we could just do a new OT thread every month so it doesn't grow out of control?

Maybe Tim330i will drop in and update us once they finish troubleshooting.

That's what they do over at BF.c. I remember us discussing when OT was finally going to break the 'fest.

dc_wright 02-26-2014 01:01 PM

My guess is a disk space allocation issue. It was taking so much resource time to do the mirroring, etc. that we slowed Performance IX to a crawl. LOL.

Joey, I don't think we have to start a new one monthly but maybe every 50K posts or so.....

hnaz 02-26-2014 01:02 PM

So much for keeping it quiet over here in the e36 section. We're just shutting down entire websites and all.

As far as those sad about your post count... Time for an intervention!:rofl:

Edit: Might as well start it out looking for help. My gauge cluster is finally starting not to work at all. Managed to make it to school and back home today with no gauges. If anybody has a cluster with say...oh.. 240k + miles please let me know. Im trying not to set it back further than the last inspection.

Thank you guys

I've got an interview with GE Aviation for an Engineering Co-op tomorrow morning... Nervous and excited. I'm not too hopeful, I'm pretty sure they only take the cream of the crop.

TechieTechie 02-26-2014 04:28 PM

CJ...Good luck. Keep the faith, man. It's not just about the grades. I think you could really work in your experiential knowledge and appreciation for engineering genius, spacial relationships, design flaws through the work you've done building and tearing down cars. Good engineering is not only the design on the paper, but understanding how the design plays out in real life.

Good luck and keep us posted!

Karl, how's the new job going?

Oooo interesting. Where would it be located? I've got two good friends from college that are in GE's Edison Program in Cincy. One was in ME and got pretty good grades. The other, my old roomate, was in aero and graduated with over 200 credits as a super senior (only require ~133). He was trying everything to get his GPA above a 2.7:rofl:

If you're trying to get into that area of GE I can hook you up with them. The ME has a 09 M3.

Thanks for the update! As much as we joke and jest, we know that thread was very long and a tax on the server. I think I speak for most of the OT group that we appreciate the hard work and are relatively understanding of the situation.

Keep it up, mods of Bimmerfest!


Also... I found my next car.

Well, maybe :angel:




We might have to have a moment of silence at Bimmerfest East and West for the thread that brought us all together. It's sorta sad, actually, that it's gone. Mods, if there is any way to archive it, we'd be most grateful.


Oh, and sorry for crashing the website. :bawling:

Brake_L8 02-26-2014 07:22 PM

A round of shots to celebrate the old OT thread's demise at BFe. Let's do it.

Got the tie rods and control arms off of the M3 tonight. Easiest removal I've had on a BMW, ever.

cuz my tacos be stealthy, yo!!:angel::D:p;)



and cj and jen, you guys are no longer purplez :nono:


i think the e36 forum has been one of the best, though.

no 'official' mod has been needed, the biggest threads (ot & pics), and quite a lot of site supporters.

oh yeah, and we managed to crisis and crash the site....:eeps: sorry 'bout that....:eeps:

and yeah, i know,....like there aren't going to be enough reasons already to get down and funky @ bfe.

maybe we should get t-shirts made up with the actual #of posts in the ot thread. a badge, so to speak....to go along with the bf e36 group?? :dunno:

Yes, for with our $9 donation every 6 moths we can definitely afford the bandwidth for this site. What is a couple of grand a month, right? :rofl:


All these site changes are coming to fast for me. First we loose OT and now they want to put a moderator in the e36 sub-forum. It is too much.

iiNFAMOUS 02-26-2014 08:01 PM

Couple grand a month? this site should be run on a dedicated, at least 10gbps unmetered server....not even over $1K a month.

drivinfaster 02-26-2014 08:05 PM

actully i don't think we need a moderator in here, just was noticed that there wasn't one dedicated to the group. i kinda think it's a *good* thing we haven't really needed one very often as we really do tend to self-moderate.

i do not see much of a difference at all regarding a mod assignment to our lilttle group. and if it does wind up being ken, he'll be napping most of the time ayway, so yeah,....win-win...:angel:

Oh man, I see a lot has happened in the last day! I was wondering why the Fest had gotten so slow. Hilarious that it was the OT thread. Kinda sounds like it might be resurrected once they figure stuff out, though. And it looks like I had a solid 5k+ posts docked from my count.
