I've lurked over there a little bit, but haven't posted since the Dale ad came out. I'm actually really disappointed and surprised that so many people have gone straight back there. Guess it is just what everyone knows and will continue to use.

For me it's still hard to just up and leave the place, it's been my home for 7 years.

Haven't posted over there since the fiasco. I would really like to see even less traffic over there, but I guess as long as I'm happy over here all is well. I would like to see WOE back, though.

Yeah, I definitely understand that. I've been posting/lurking over there for the past 4 years, which is why I still check it every now and then. Seems like it will just continue to go downhill though with IB at the helm.

There are a lot of people on CF that never even venture into OT, and a lot of them could care less about what IB has done.
The place is HUGE and it may lose a few members but overall I don't think it will hurt them one bit.
I've seen so many changes at the CF since 2000 it makes my head spin, and every time people have threatened to leave. (Hell even I)
Some did leave but most came back, and the ones that did were replaced 10 fold.
Don't get me wrong I'd like IB to get a hard smackdown for this but Unfortunately I don't think it will happen.

I must admit though this place is pretty cool.

I believe that many 'new' members will remain on DC.

Some will be on both Forums - nothing wrong with that.

Prior to coming here (and this is a GREAT place) I was on multiple Forums.

With the "new" IB position I am still unconvinced that there are not long term business issues that they are either unaware of, or aware of and have a game plan that will address those matters.

In the latter - it is extremely possible that those methods will serve to change the original intent of the Forum - that being to bring Corvette enthusiastic together.

At present, a very apparent change in membership makeup is occurring - more individuals that have no interest in Corvettes are posting.

This will eventually force the Supporting Vendors to consider moving to other venues where Corvettes are the primary topic. Keep in mind it makes little sense for those company's to advertise products and services that are oriented to Corvette owners on a venue that has more non- Corvette members than Corvette owners.

Concurrently, the Corvette owners on that venue will, of necessity at some point, move to other forum venues where they can interact with like mined Corvette owners, thus benefiting by interacting with a larger Corvette knowledge base.

As an additional benefit from that change - the owners should find the relocated vendors of Corvette products on that new venue - allowing better pricing for products and services to be available there.

Just my $0.02

I tried to post there but I got a screen that said that my post will be reviewed by a moderator, that's enough for me, I logged out and haven't been back since.

------------------------------------------------------------'
Thanks for your feedback on the new advertising position we introduced at Corvetteforum last week, including the initial video ad and then the Google ad that replaced it. Based on your suggestions, and after consulting with site administrator Jim Willis (savewave), we've made some modifications to diminish the ad's impact on supporting members and vendors.

We're blocking Google ads -- including the one to the right of the first post in a thread -- for the following types of accounts:

Supporting Dealer
Supporting Gold
Supporting Lifetime
Supporting Lifetime Gold
Supporting Manufacturer
Supporting Member
Supporting Tuner
Supporting Vendor

In addition, we have removed the Google ad adjacent to the first posts from any post created by a Supporting Dealer, Manufacturer, Tuner or Vendor to avoid the possibility of competitive advertisers showing up right next to their posts.

We've also added a border to the first post Google ad to make it apparent the ad is not part of the first post.

We have taken the feedback from the community and worked hard to come up with a resolution that supports our community’s concerns. We appreciate the feedback we have received ([email protected] m ) and send special thanks to the entire Corvetteforum community.

Best Regards,

Ryan Porter
Internet Brands


-------------------

In other words it's like I said it would be in the first CF ad thread .... "pay a fee or we will make you miserable"...

I have been reading these posts for days.
I have not seen anything mentioned about competition and this place is not to be compared to CF.
DC is DC, it is what it is.
I like it here, I hope you people do too but stop with the CF shit, it is boring.

Patrick said no new CF threads, this is an old one, it clearly says CF in the title of the thread, in fact, CF is the first thing the title says. If you don't want to read about CF, why click on a thread about CF?
