    I know if I even log in here it will give you guys a field day..

    But the simple logic is Trifive gets a ton of post and if you do not put them in the correct categories, you will get ton's of complaints.

    I don't admin any more, just observe.

    I wish all of you guys well, and also I have no hard feeling about any negative comments about me, if it makes you happy that's fine.

    But I know their are some good guys here.

    Have a nice day .

    So if you move them you get a complaint and if you dont move them you get a complaint. Sounds like you're screwed either way.

    Why do you feel the need to plead your case here? Just curious.

    I think very few people look at "categories" on either site. All I do is hit "Today's Posts" or "New Posts" and I see all of the new ones since I looked at them last. That's the way I did it on the other site too, when I still posted there around 7 years ago. Even when searching for something I usually search the entire site. So the "categories" are really of pretty limited value.

    Goes for any site. This site or others aren't the library with the Dewey Decimal System (does the library even use it any more?)

    I have been on that other site from time to time. I get the feeling it is a family and I am not a welcome member of that family. It seems very clanish to me. I do wish this site had more activity since i like it better. I have been a member of an Oldsmobile site for a long time and have never seen a post reclassified. I never look at where it is posted. I either go to new post or today's post. Just my 2 cents.

    It seems very "gestapo-ish" to me. They control what you say, where it goes, and if you don't comply you get reprimanded or even banned. I never got banned, I left over a picture of a trophy pronghorn antelope I shot that I was "ordered" to remove. I refused and told Otis to stick it and haven't been back. How can a site say "anything goes" in Chit Chat and then tell you there's things you can't post just because someone doesn't like it. Screw 'em. They cater to a small group of whiners.

    I do wish this site had more activity since i like it better.
    Keep in mind that it takes more members posting to get more activity. I have tried to post project updates, car info, and some technical stuff and I try to help guys with their problems, questions, finding stuff, etc. I don't mind a debate but I will correct someone's misinformation and defend myself if I'm attacked.

    Some guys seem to feel that it's everyone else's obligation to "entertain" them. We had one guy quit the site not long ago complaining that there weren't enough people posting. I asked him to post his project pictures here months ago and he refused to do it. The site won't grow if everyone expects everyone else to post stuff for them to read.

    We just had a guy who posted TWICE in 6 months and his last post was complaining that there were go-cart pictures in the gallery that should be removed. He provided ZERO content or added any value to the site. Who needs losers like that?

    I was banned for life from "Otis'" site, haven't tried to go there since. I'm on another forum owned by the same group and almost all of it is parts for sale there's very little content on it. I wish I had more to contribute here on this forum, I might soon as I hope to start working on my '55 soon.

    What earns a "banned for life"? Just curious.
