I would like to thank everyone who was able to make a donation for the purpose of obtaining new features for the forum. The donation goal was met rather quickly and we here at Kung Fu Fandom can not thank you enough for the support. The plan is once the new site is up and running, the focus will then turn to the forum on updating and adding these new features and we will continue to strive to make your time spent here on the forum as enjoyable as possible. _/|\_

The Defunct KFC Cinema Boards Appreciation Thread

Recommended Posts

Like most of you, I am quite sadden about the lost and closing of KFC boards. I've meet a lot of great posters on there. I hope we can continue the passion and love for films once again. Gone but never forgotten. I was OpiumkungfuCracker.

Amen. In case anyone feels the needs to refer back to something on there, you can always search for the cached version of whatever thread you want to see.

KFC will be missed for sure, but with that said, let's build SC36 into the new spot for KF fans!

I echo your thoughts here man. Lots of great material we lost and great people we're no longer in touch with (though with emails, social network or other forums, completely losing contact with someone seems pretty unlikely).

BTW, didn't know you were on here. Nice to see you. :rockon

Yeah, I'm rarely on here. I bought multiple shirts from Shaolin36, but I will visit this board and others more often with my passion of films. I'm not going anywhere.

Your passion could help boost up the activity on here. Just sayin'. :wink

Welcome back to the forum WonBin'sMojo! The passion for the martial arts film genre is most definitely here, KFB and I have been working on building the site up and have a ton of plans to expand the site in the near future. We would like to welcome all new members here on the forum, and let you know that we do appreciate everyone's participation.

Thank you.

I am technically inept. Can you explain to me in layman's terms how to do this?

Hi KF Bob:

If you have Firefox, search for whatever topic you like in the browser window, but make sure you add Kung Fu Cinema Forum. You'll see the little purple word cached to the right of a green web address.

Any results will be below that (I searched for Five Venoms Kung Fu Cinema Forum)

That is a good method of searching Lady Jin Szu-Yi!

Another way is to use a secret technique. (Very easy to do):

Go to Google and type in the word or phrase in quotes that you are looking for.

Right after that type (or copy and paste) this - site:http://www.kungfucinema.com/forums/

For example: "KUNG FU BOB" site:http://www.kungfucinema.com/forums/

This will give you a list of every forum page Google has cached with your your username on it. Very helpful for locating your old posts. 3,780 results!

A search for - antidisestablishmentarianism site:http://www.kungfucinema.com/forums/ comes up with nothing :crying

Now underneath the blue text link, follow the green text to the end and you will see a down arrow (or the word "cached") Click that for the cached version of the page. If you were to click on the main blue link you would just get nothing since that goes to the live version of the page which doesn't exist anymore.

You can now save the page to your computer by going to Menu > File > Save Page As, or just copying the text if that's all you need. To access it later just double click the file you saved and it will open in your browser.

Unfortunately I don't think these will last forever, or indeed very long. The next time Google's bots come around to do a crawl, they will find nothing there and these pages will be gone for good.

----------

You can also try searching without using "site:" and just put the URL in the search box by itself. This is a different kind of search and will give some different results. Try using the more complete version of the forum URL - http://www.kungfucinema.com/forums/showthread.php?

Copy and paste that entire link into the Google search box and it shows 87 results. But that's because Google is being lazy. At the bottom of the page, if you click "repeat the search with the omitted results included." you'll see there are over 30,000 results!

Then you can fine tune it just like above by adding some key words or phrases, such as the title or partial title of the thread.

Another thing is you can search with is a thread's entire URL. You probably won't know it, but you may see it while searching. Adding t=23669 or whatever thread number after the ? in the URL above ( http ://www.kungfucinema.com/forums/showthread.php?t=23669 ) will give you results for that specific thread, which is another good way of finding multiple page threads. Thread number 23669 was "The Donnie Yen Thread" which was 21 pages long.

Hope this helps.

PS: If you want to search for articles on the main site do the same as above, but with just the main site URL:

http://www.kungfucinema.com/

Thanks for your advanced "cache" technique panku (bows politely.)

Appreciate learning something new.

If all else fails, there are some [posts still active at the internet way back machine. url]https://web.archive.org/web/20150627194414/http://www.kungfucinema.com/.. please note a lot of these bring up avatars or the empty space gifs and even though the main site page is still "there" it will probably lead to a lot of 404 page not here results.

I was stunned to see my old domain address and several fan sites / interviews still archived from 6 years ago!

I figured I'll throw this out there in addition to panku's excellent tutorial.

I find the easiest way to access a cached page is this:

1. Locate the exact URL through a google search. Usually f I remember a few key words or the thread title, id search for "thread title" kungfucinema.com

2. After finding which one I want, copy the URL. (Right click the link from google, copy)

3. Go to cachedview.com

4. Paste URL into search bar, click google cache, and walaa!

Hopefully this place can become the new KFC.

That's nice of you to say. This forum can only dream of coming close to what the KFC forum once was. But it is possible as long as people come here to support. So thank you for showing up here, please don't hesitate to spread the word. Thanks again MaskedAvenger. :bandit

Howdy SC36.

I am the former poster on KFCF called:

GOLDEN DRAGON YIN-YANG.

I am happy to be on BOARD.......LOL.

As this brings back the fond memories of that glorious forum.

First all I would like to thank Mark Pollard and all the moderators who made KFCF the greatest forum on the WWW for fans of Asian films, especially kung fu movies.

I am sure many here were on KFCF, if so I salute you all and look forward to some great dialogs on SC36.

Thanks,

GDY-Y

Hello, I am also a KFCF refugee. I only had a handful of posts over there under the same name, but I lurked fairly often. I'm a casual kung fu fan compared to some of you on these boards, I'm sure. I'm mostly into the classic Shaw Brothers stuff, but always looking for good kung fu new or old.

Thank you for joining us here on the forum. Here, we are all just fans of the genre. Even though I've spent countless amount of hours building this site and maintaining it, I myself am far from being an expert on the martial arts film genre. Feel free to post anything pertaining to the genre, or even outside the genre in any of the NON-MA related sections of the forum.

Thanks again for signing up and posting. :rockon
