Two cents worth

Just some thoughts after checking this site for a number of years. Being older than most of the members of this fine group I am lacking some what in computer skills. I and a number of other check ins would ask a question and have been told to go do a search and more or less stop asking dumb questions. For some dumb reason in the last 2 years I have acquired 6 of these damn Zukes in various states of repairs. Have at the present time 3 of them ready for the road and soon as the weather breaks here will finish the 4th.

With out information gleaned from this site I am sure I would have ****caned these projects long ago. Example( Who could have guessed the valve timing is done using # 4 at TDC) Some of your members have got to under stand that the new comer more than likely is just starting out and after seeing some of the replies is some what afraid to ask a question.
For what itís worth this is my two cents worth.

why is it dead???

One of the reasons that this site has gone dead are the other regional sites that have popped up since I first dropped by back in, was it 2002?

Then, there were a lot of folks who dropped out for better or worse.

I started a site to help folks easily find stuff on the internet called Ack's FAQ. All of searchable references to this site at the FAQ are to various web page articles on fabbing and maintenance. This forum just isn't the same anymore...

I do stop by here every once in a while...

Unhappy

I may not post but I am in here daily to check up on what's new on the BBS. I like many others cut our Zuki teeth on this board and can't imagine just abandoning it.

This BBS has endured for so many years it is amazing. Even though people don't post much here they do check in often. The recent thread about "what happened here" showed that it is still looked at. Jim

The reason I quit coming here very often was the crowd changed. Instead of real 4 wheelers it became a forum for kids to spout off what they didn't know.

They'd ask a question for help, then insult the answers.

Then other fools would chime in with totally stupid solutions.

And the flaming - it became like the pirate board - idiots!

Plus the wording and spelling showed it was full of kids.

About the only thing folks did was buy bolt-on stuff - very little creativity.

It was so bad I lost interest in building another Tracker.

I'm not on here as much as I used to be, but I still check it out about once a week or so.

This defiantly was the #1 board to be on at one time. I can't tell you how many times I would meet someone at an event, and they would introduce themselves by their ORC handle...lol

There are defiantly a lot of more local forums out there now. But this will always be the #1, grand-daddy of them all!
