This forum is kind of getting dull (no offense) THis forum would be alot better if we would have more people register to this site.

some times I think, but not often
anyway, this forum can be quite slow every now and then, but other times it gets reasonable traffic. More knowledgeable regulars would be nice, as well as people that are regular posters, but unless you have any brilliant ideas, I don't think it will change any time soon. Maybe if everyone disappeared for a while UFF would stop getting his check in the mail, and realize this place could use a booster shot. Since What was banned, this place has been more civil, but not before we lost a few regulars. The only way we can do anything to make this place grow any is to spread the word, but most people that want a forum have a forum specific to their vehicles.

It just happens sometimes...There's other threads like this one but I can't find any now. Lately though, it seems like more members have left than are joining.

This has been said numerous times before, but there's nothing anyone can do other than to keep the threads coming...

An active Admin would help, also...

who thinks

It appears that moderating team deletes members post without warning or explaining to them why they have deleted. It is bad moderatorship.

I have also some grievances to speak about. But who to tell, where to go. . .?

Chances are that you posted blatent advertising or similar. I for one used to simply delete the offending link (if applicable) and post a warning. I've given up on that now, seeing as members rarely return anyway. It might be worth noting that if your name was forwarded to an Admin type person by me (which I don't do too often unless absollutely necessary), you would have been banned immediately. Try reading the rules that are in my sig if you would like clarification on anything. Or drop me a PM, as reviving a thread that's not relevent to your querie is bad membership....

For information, I have copy/pasted a section of our rules here at CF, which you should find interesting.

You are re-banned.

Having watched the sign-ups on here for the past couple of years, I've noticed hundreds of "bot" sign-ups with the same information...this is just one "person" among those.

Face it. There's two things this forum needs immediately to make it worth a sh*t again... Me and Twhat. Unfortunately, we've both been chased off for different reasons and in different ways. The loss is all yours.

Like it or not, this forum started going down the toilet at the same time I quit being a regular poster. Check the stats. That's more than just a coincidence, it's a fact. I have drawing power wherever I go. I'm a SUPERSTAR!

Wow. Another typically well considered and articulated response from the forum's number one heavy thinker.

Look in the mirror Twinkie. You're a large part of the problem. 99% of what's wrong with this forum is the fact that you have an essentially completely inactive administrator, and more importantly moderators that to a large extent have nothing to do with their time (as far as this forum goes). Instead of doing something to improve or energize the membership, they're (you're) only interested flaunting their power and harassing people who don't think or act exactly the way you want them to. It's sad really.

Some day when you and one other moderator grow up and become a big boys, you'll figure out that less regulation and therefore more freedom is always more conducive to open exchange of thoughts and enjoyment, which is really the point of a forum like this. You clowns have built and reinforced your little fiefdom to the point that youíve chased away most of the good and regular members, so now you donít even have anyone left to push around. Surprise! As for how Bav has apparently changed (based on what Iíve briefly read) and the other guy who must not be around, I donít have enough information to form an opinion.

So now you can go ahead and display your manlinessÖ Delete or edit this post, ban me, come up with another of your intellectually stimulating three word replies. I donít really care. You can ignore me, you can even silence me, but you canít change the fact that the cause of the majority of problem(s) with this forum sits squarely on the shoulders of the moderation ďteamĒ. Are you man enough to do something about it?
