dirtmod08 said:Why should a list of names be published? It's obvious that people miss SP because a few bad apples had to ruin it. It was a bad move to delete the section instead of the abusers. All I see any more is the line getting drawn in the sand over it. I guess you may end up with the next generation of camaro fanatics, but this site has obviously slowed down a lot lately. That could be denied also, but it's pretty obvious to those that have been here forever.
This post made me LOL...really.Knuckle Dragger said:So you're making assumptions based on other people's assumptions. I get it, saying people are leaving over x, y or z is what all the cool kids are saying these days. Saying it doesn't make it true. The whole "I'm not going to research it" is a cop out. You said it, back it up. I'm not trying to be an ass but you have accused the entire staff of running people off the board. Surely you could come up with one SP regular that left over it.
The whole "you guys" thing is just silly. This site has thousands of members and a few, less than 20 I would guess, have an issue with this that or the other regarding SP and the locks etc. Those 20 don't speak for the rest of the membership. Do you really figure a pragmatic guy like Mike would knee jerk a decision like closing SP and making an effort to return the board to the tone it once had? "Us guys" have heard from a lot of people about issues they had with what was going on. You haven't been privy to the discussions that went on for years about SP and the tone of the board in general so you wouldn't know this but you lump it up as us against them type deal. That's another shot at the staff and it's blatantly unfair and untrue.
I get it, you were trying to be helpful. Mike N simply stated he thought you should ask MadMike before using his site's name in your endeavor. He didn't say you shouldn't make the site. You got upset and that's your deal, not the staff's fault.

The closing of Special Projects was debated among the Mods and Admins for well over a year before it occurred. It's unfortunate that the sub-forum, had to go
