I'm sure this thread will not make any difference, but after paying for a vendor forum for 11 months without it being added, I have cancelled my subscription and filed a PayPal claim for the past 6 months of subscription fees. Hopefully that will get goob's attention.

If anyone has any contact with goob it would be nice if my forum could be added, then I will resume my subscription. Between repeated issues like this and the new search issue, I don't see the site lasting much longer unless an active admin is present. I know there are several capable people willing to step up, so it's sad to see the site being neglected.

What do you suppose is going on? Carelessness?

It appears that way. It's been like this for years, but we've gone nearly a whole year with no admin visits at all now.

Very sad to hear. FB must be taking over.

Hope you get things worked out, man.

I would go back to MAF but it's dead, unless we can revive it. Would be a lot of work though.

Has been since ANT took over IMO. I haven't used it since and DIYMA is horribly slow being so packed with adds.

The problem is MAF doesn't pick up new members because it's not an obvious site name and doesn't have a decade's worth of posts that people looking for something obscure will find through google and arrive there.

I don't think Goob has been here more than 10 times since I joined and we haven't had an active mod here in a good year. Hopefully the paypal claim gets his attention. Not like it would take him more than an hour to assign a dozen new mods and then disappear for another few years to collect ad revenue checks.

I would gladly help him out and I know that @denim would as well. We both have forum administration experience ;)

IMO vendors being mods could be considered a conflict of interest, except in the case of SSA where the site is itself a vendor and their people moderate their forums. Still though I wouldn't object to ANY mods here who could drain the swamp every now and again.

Man I haven't been here in ages and it feels like some of the same for sale ads are up from when I was here last. I use to love coming here and gathering good info and shooting the **** but things have changed big time. There are some really great people here but getting past all the other bs and lack of moderation makes it hard to hang around anymore. There are plenty of good members who would step up and have offered to do so (myself included) but no one is around that gives enough of a **** to make it happen. I even remember one of the moderators flat out talking **** about the people who were offering to help. Had some shady dealings with one of the mods here as well. I think the site could be revived if the administrator would let us help.

In the early 2000s i used to love CarAudioForum.com - The WWW Car Audio Forum its dead now. they have knowledgeable people and it wasn't filled with bs/spam
Ah yes! The Good Olde Daze of the Internet!! Before Steve Case sent free AOL CDs to anything with a pulse! Before the WWW was even invented/popularized!! I remember it well.
