We finally have things behind the scenes straightened out (i think!), so now we can focus on what's happening in the open.

It's going to be A LOT more relaxed around here now. Just keep the right material in the right forums, and have fun! I don't think anyone should feel like they can't express their political opinions as long as it's in the bilge, and not just outright aimed at attacking another member.

Pick an avatar that doesn't have a 400lb woman riding a baseball bat, and you're probably good to go with whatever you choose.

BLee it's sure nice to see you on here giving answers to some of the problems members are having or have had....If someone had been active in at least responding to us after IB took over some of the BS may have been avoided...but I do thank you....Chip Cecil....

C'mon guys...
We spend more $ just getting out of the docks.
Granted .. there been a lot of BS and things aren't the same... but what the hack!! ?/ $45 is still well spent..
It's worth 45 just to vent and ask for tech. info.

That's not going to happen anymore.

Good debates on topics that are tough to agree on keep forums moving and active. They become slow and boring when you restrict all of the "human element" to the point people are afraid to post. If you have no posts, you soon have no forum.

I'm a one forum guy...I don't have time to check out the other forums....I get a few mins in the morning, some time during my lunch (right now) and a little time at the end of teh day. I never really check in when I am at home unless I have something specific that I am looking for. Hope people don't start taking off from this site...don't want to have to split my time with another one.

It took a little bit for ME to figure out what the hell was going on too!!

Now that they've hopefully fixed the technical part that Speedgirl or I can't do anything about, the site should run smoother. Combine that with more "old school" moderating and rules, and we should be making "new good ol days" again.....at least that's the plan.

I also noticed that this lack of activity/posting is with off topic AND boating discussion COMBINED over there!
