Domain name changes[edit | edit source]
While the URL was originally tbgs.tk, it was parked and turned into a virus-filled site (date unknown, please add), causing the TBGs to move to tbgforums.com. On May 14, 2017, the domain name expired and the TBGs were down for about 12 hours. During that time, many TBGers panicked and alerted jji7skyline.
