It's not a rant, Neo, it is the truth and a reality.
For others not "friends" with us, we have been discussing this on Facebook. (Neo and Sniper mainly).
For one, this server stuff has got to end. My website costs me next to nothing to run and I the service I have it through has a 99.9% up-time guarantee. I've never experienced my personal site being down.
Two, this VB
needs to be updated badly.
Three, this site needs to be proofread again. There spelling and/or grammatical errors that make it unprofessional.
Four, the cheesy links that just 404 at the bottom of the page need to be removed. If the idea is to draw this site to other site's of David's, so be it..it's his choice as admin, but shouldn't they at least work and be current? I remember checking them when I first joined and they seem to be exactly the same today.
Five, I love everyone here to death (and I truly mean that), but it seems like there's no love for the upkeep of this site. Complacency kills a forum.
Six, I'm sorry, but I'm going to have to agree with Neo. David doesn't seem to care much anymore. When that happens, I don't find it very appealing to just leave this corner of the interwebs "hanging." Either pour your heart into something like this, or pass it over to someone who will.
And there is my 2 cents, stated very nicely.
I know this is going to stir emotions, and a lot of the more tenured members may have a problem with what is going to be said in here, but I urge the moderators to keep this thread open and let people respectfully voice their opinions. If someone is saying something disrespectful, edit their post or send them a PM...don't close the tread. There is some things that need to be said in here.
