I moved the topics from the "Manuals" board into the other forum boards.
For example if the topic was about a whirlpool washer manual I moved it to the Whirlpool board.
All the manuals can still be found here.http://appliancejunk.com/forums/index.php?action=downloads
You can also search for manuals here.http://appliancejunk.com/forums/index.php?action=downloads;sa=search
I had hoped to create some discussion when a new topic got posted in the "Manual" board, but that did not happen so I did not see any point in having a board just for topics on manuals.
We also moved all the topics from the TechnicianBrian board into the other forum boards and closed the TechnicianBrian board. As you may have known the TechnicianBrian board was more or less a copy of Brians blog post.
I believe the copy and paste of Brians blog post to our forum may have been hurting our google page ranking.
You can still read Brians blog at http://www.technicianbrian.com/
Brian is still a "AJ Team" member and all his old post can still be found in the forums.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
