This really answered a question I had from a few months ago when I found the top posters list..I always wondered where corvette440 Larry went and now CJ5Nuts Scott..Maybe it's a shot over the bow to not purchase a lifetime membership.

[QUOTE=cj5nutz]I would just let the chips fall where they may, so to speak.  Unless the thread is getting excessive, let it go. This is more of a family setting than a tech seminar. I agree there is a point, but very few times have I thought it got that far in here.
People are funny about restrictions and there certainly are plenty of choices of forums to visit these days.
 
There are plenty of tech articles and posts to be researched in this forum and if a person askes a question of the tech sort, it usually gets an answer pretty fast.
 
Don't be wondering in a few months why the post count is down to nothing Wink
 
Take the family and carefree out of this forum and it will die like the rest.

I think this site is great just like it is. I mean theres plenty of good info and kidding here. Have I been scolded to stay on topic, yes a few times. Do I let it upset me, NO! Some of these posts would go on such a tangent you would never know how it started. I appreciate the work the moderators do to keep things in line. This is still the site I enjoy coming to most and am looking forward to seeing many of you at the gathering. If someone wants to get their panties in a bunch and leave, I'm sorry but let them. I'll still be here with my buddies! Long live C3VR!

Rich, I would really doubt that someone left the forum because moderators reminded folks to try to stay on topic from time to time....if someone did, that would just be silly.... 

I don't know any time since I became a member in 2004 when discussions were so highly scrutinized that members started getting upset...

It's been a great place and I personally believe it still is, and possibly better with the current crowd. Wink

Each night I come to this site for information and to catch up on what everyone is doing. I find this group of members to be more then just a technical page of a manual. I realize the importance of being able to search for information by topic, but it takes just a few seconds to move to the next post if it doesnt have the information you are looking for. Since joining this forum a few years ago I have made some great friends that I enjoy talking too, some I have personally met and others I hope to meet some time in the future. I belong to 2 other vette forums and I can honestly say I go to those sites just to see if there is anything that will benefit ME. I come to this site to see if I can help someone or to get respectable information. I share with this group were the other groups I am selfish and just take from.
The difference is that this group is "FAMILY" to me.
I believe it comes from the ribbing and babbling we do with each other at times.
With that said, my thanks to the group owner and moderators for allowing us to post daily and to voice our opinions. Its a great management group with a GREAT group of fun and helpful members. Both are needed to have a great FAMILY.
I'm happy here!
Thanks Again,
Rodney

I think this is what we are talking about..staying in topic..OBAMA is a thread on itself..it's tough for me to do that also since I only see a tiny bit of what goes on here..you can always start one on him if you like..I am not saying you can't by all means..I think that was from 09 anyhow..

Larry (corvette 440) still comes on the site but chooses not to post. He never missed a birthday and was a great ambassador for C3, I miss his posting humor.
Trust me he is alive and well and since he is not on as much, he has his 69 frame off in full swing he just coated the frame this week. If any one wants to see pictures PM me.
I promiss this will be the last time this year I'll stray off topic.............Shocked

I've been with C3VR since Dec. '01. C3VR was only 1 month old. This forum, club, family or whatever you may consider it HAS CHANGED. I used to enjoy coming on here daily and posting frequently, but it isn't the same as it once was. Don't get me wrong. C3VR is still a fine site and all, and I have made quite a few friends here. So I'm not bashing the site, but stating that the site has changed over the years.
Sorry to get off topic.

how about this, combine "off topic, humor, anything goes", forums into one forum, that way you talk about any of the other forums, have fun, blur the lines, be offensive, and just screw off, and call it the " Incorrect topic  forum", and please no photos of naked old people!.....tryed to get into the "humor and anything goes" forums and couldn't, it said I had to have permission, are those forums like porns sites, do you have to pay extra?

That's an interesting idea..I think it is split up so that if you don't want the anything goes topic for talking about something not like that..to sign up for it PM Norsky..I think the on switch is on his computer..

  The written word seems so volatile. interpreted a little differently by each who read. Hopefully this site is important enough to all to give the benefit of any doubt as to the intent of all that is posted here. We all know that we are a very select group. Hopefully the love will prevail.

Good ta see yer still lurkin about Nutzy. I thought I remembered why ya left here, but then I forgot......Confused

As you can see I been around since 02. Seen people come, people go. Guess that's the nature of the site. Sometimes guy's get a lil sensitive, gonna happen I guess. I'm pretty loose kinda guy, an if someone gets a lil off topic, I guess I don't notice. Prolly why I'm not a moderator. Yup, I've gotten my paddys wacked a few timesAngry, but I ain't goin nowhere.

Not sure if I'm on topic but that's my .02.
