Patrick .. if you get the 4million ... make sure it is after taxes!!! Good Luck on that goal ...

But I will argue 1 point you made:

More Members does equal more Money ... but only because of the following logic:

More Members = More Traffic
More Traffic = More Vendors wanting to Advertize
More Vendors = More Ad Income & more Expense on Bandwidth

Now if the business plan is good ... the ad income should be more than the bandwidth cost ... and there you have it ... a few more $$$ every month.

And ... if you ever need more volunteer help on the site ... I am willing to help ... I like this site a lot more than CF, but until recently it never had the traffic to keep me busy ... it does now ...

Patrick,

Are you and the long time members pleased with the sudden increase in intrest in DC, or do you guys feel like a private party's been crashed?

I hope it's the former, but I'm just asking...

As a "long time" member of DC, but not a very active poster ... I would say it's cool to have all of the new people ... but if it's only in the Lounge ... it kind of defeats the purpose ... cause people come here for Corvette related stuff ... so all of the CF imports should also start contributing to their car specific part too ... that is what will make this community even better.

I think that one of the downfall's of CF is that CFOT is the main part of the site ... and when OT is King, you are no longer a Corvette site ... you are a "OT" site with Corvette related forums ... not the other way around as it should be.

Plus ... as this site evolves ... hopefully it evolves into a site where it is the defacto source for Corvette Info ... as of now it is split between 5 sites as I see it (CF, DC, CAC, Z06Vette, and CrossedFlags) ...

1st: Thanks for the welcome and letting us CF refugees vent.

2nd: Next saturday sep-8, a bunch of local CF members (who I have become friends with over the years) are having another road trip. But... Since I am now in 30-day ban camp, I can't even get back on CF to check where the new meeting place is.

Could someone please go into the regional mountain-prairie section, look for a thread about a road trip to Estes Park Colorado, scroll down to a post by Streehan (I think that's how he spells it) and tell me where the new meeting place and time is? (And if you could, simply post "the freak will be there".)

Thank you

Remember the very beginning of Oliver Stone's movie "The Doors",when you hear Jim Morrison's voice saying "Is everybody in?"
I'm in.
Thanks, Patrick.

Mark,

You were almost the first CF refuge that I was going to ban...then I saw your just kidding comment. It is a good thing we don't just "react" here, we take in what is going on then make a call.

Welcome to the site!

I'll admit that I will split time and let things settle down and see who ends up where before I swear off either site.

It is nice to know that there is a good alternative here.
