Gear Wars gone?

Gear Wars gone?
Is the Gear Wars section gone for good? If so, it's too bad for the people who actually used it for what it was intended for... but it was getting to be pretty bad. Thanks for such a great page!

I always found it really annoying that although Ampage is full of sensible views and information, and endless useful knowledge, the Gear Wars got to be so full of idiots.  
Maybe there's a way of relaunching the whole thing so it doesn't appeal to the guys who just want an excuse for a swear up. Over to you tboy!
Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

It's no bad thing to have a section that attracts 'idiots' and the socially unaware, if it keeps them off the other sections!!

Hmmm... maybe Tboy could put some sticky stuff on the floor... kind of like a Roach Motel for jerks.
