a lot of the things we hate about the board--the chat is gone, the members tab, the skins-- are being implemented...give it a couple days to work itself out.

the "rules" thing is VS's template. WE as mods and Deezul and Eli as admin will alter their rules to fit our needs and they will be nearly as they have always been. we will be using some version of their "points system". this will hopefully illuminate some of the variance that gets involved with emotions

what we cannot do anything about is the fact that it's owned by a company and that they put their ads all over the fucking place. the temp solution is to dl the ad blockers...FF has a plugin, IE7 as adblocker too. so take away the ads and when the old skins are back on in a couple days, the vast majority of complaints are dealt with.


give it a few days please. don't freak out and run away because it is not EXACTLY as it has been. i'm pissed too. but getting crazy emotional and running away is fucking stupid. man up, sit tight and see if it isn't ok in a week. if not, then do whatcha gotta do.

i can understand where you are coming from, but on the other hand, the forum is no longer going to be how it was. also what is stopping this new owner from charging right now for vip access, to in the future charging for general access. they basically can change anything they want, whenever they want. i'm all for having another board where it is free for everything and for the good of the sport, not for the good of one company's pocket book. i'll check it out, but unless shit gets a lot better real fast, i'm gone.

thing is, same thing happened to R6-forum, and since then, nothing has changed. the difference between that forum and this one is that one has a bunch of post whore douche bags who don't know jack about the sport. this one actually has guys who care and don't feel like dealing with a corporate ass clown so they are going to do something about and make another forum that is just like what we loved before.

I could wait forever and I'll never have the feeling I've had for the last 7 years back. This place no longer belongs to us. We should go elsewhere. Leave the bad and take all the good with us. Easy as that.

Guys, as Seth has said, give the new board some time to iron out the problems and then take a fresh look at it.

Nobody likes changes but sometimes these changes work - Give it a little time

Do you like being controlled? You don't get it... Wouldn't you rather be where the owner would NEVER sell us to make a buck?

Let's not downplay this catastrophe as some 'little change'. It's not like they just installed a new hack on the board software, they fucking sold us.

No one has lied because no one has given us a damned explanation. Apparently it's coming "very soon". You'd think the hours of downtime would have been plenty sufficient for someone to type up a paragraph or two...
