    I'm sure you don't want me to quote you in PM's sayin it's a sticking point etc. There were reasons why this was all done, and you of all people know that to be true. Don't switch up because we're in a public forum now, I expect much more from the only responsible moderator remaining on this site.

    I'm not switching it up & you thinking I would do so "because we are in public" stinks.

    threatening to post pm's? really EF? - & you expect more from me?

    I don't want to argue with you, but what you said about Job wasn't fair. (that was my main reason for replying)He's said what BVA mods should really have been saying imo

    It sucks that shit had to turn out like this but at this point it is what it is. It's not like if CG had a change of heart tomorrow and reverted the site back to VB everyone would just come back. All we can do is keep it moving and stay improving.

    Who threatened? I said you yourself said it was a sticking point. Not to mention I was told candidly it wouldn't be an option in the pit.

    What I said about JobOne is unfair because I can't otherwise fathom his "deal". You've got to understand the loyalty of certain people is being tested and, contrary to some of your belief, it's not mine or the rest of the community.

    To say "what is this really about" as if the qualms we have with the forum changes aren't legitimate is the kind of shit that makes us all mad and not want to keep feeding into this website; which is now a mere fraction of the quality it used to be.

    I'm rarely ever serious here but everyone's making this way harder than what it has to be. One would think RM learned its lesson from the OhTeeBeeVeeAy fiasco, but they clearly didn't. Shit seemed like classic tyranny over here, with a bit of arrogance from those higher up. They made the forums look terrible and they gutted the very things that made users want to post here in the first place. This forum kinda deserves everything that happens from here on out. AreEmBeeVeeAy all day, shun.

    Ok I read all this thread for some reason, just wanted to put my views across as someone who was never that involved with this forum but checked it regularly and has now jumped over to the new one.

    I have never been on a forum where are massive change to it HASNT significantly lowered the daily traffic. So just a change on it's own, even if it's 'better' will always alienate some people and cause them to come here less.

    Add to that the fact that this wasn't a clean transition in the slightest and it just makes the problem worse.

    So basically, what you've done is hit people with all these negatives, with only promised positives which tbh none of which sound neccesary and a lot of it just sounds like generic 'better user experience' stuff.

    ErikForeman did what anyone who considers themselves to be a helper of this community would do, he fixed the problem. You might say he made the problem worse, or that there never was one, but if you do then either you're being payed or you have this pointless loyalty to a domain name.

    Him jumping didn't make the problem worse. Him jumping FIXED the problem.

    I think its universally accepted that people hate change, so when you force unnecessary change on them, they are more than likely going to get pissed off.

    Its that simple, why bring the website down for 24 hours just to add a bunch of shit that the vast majority of the website has had 0 input towards?


    Not in the same sense as the other members, no. Yes they are technically apart of the userbase. Just like a politician is apart of society, but that doesn't mean they shouldn't listen to the people, and when they don't people are 100% within their right to get pissed off.

    Why are you still arguing with us. At this point you should be saying "yes sir, we're sorry." Your intransigence just proves that moving was the correct decision. When I say "members" you damn well know I don't mean "staff." Stop equivocating and start accepting reality. You already lost and we're giving you the courtesy of telling you why.

    I don't get what's so different about this site? The look is different, but as far as "functioning" it's just missing that red thing in the corner that blinked and would tell you if someone was online or not. Bring back the red thing and we good. I saw Foreman's site already has the red thing though, so I guess I'll just sign up there.
