Re: Disturbing post on Cherokeesrt-8.com about Us

first, Mike your products and customer service is top-notch...got my sway links in two days like Peter

second, I have never been a member of the "red site"...I was recruited from streetjeeps by Joe and Irfy and have not been back to sj or ju for well over 6 months...we have everything we need here IMO

I think I am going to join the red site for $hits and giggles and see how long it takes to get banned HAHAHA

Re: Disturbing post on Cherokeesrt-8.com about Us

on the topic of weird forums. Right when I got my jeep I was trying to find a forum to ask questions about getting wheels for my jeep. So I tried jeepforum.com. As you can see they are pretty much only about offroading your jeep. Sorry, I was a little short with them but i was kind of mad that they wouldnt answer my question and only talked about offroading in their responses. btw look at how ugly the wheels they suggested are.
heres the link

Re: Disturbing post on Cherokeesrt-8.com about Us

just made a new member post on the red site...if you are a member there say hi! I will be very interested to see the kinda responses and welcomes I get there...

I feel like I am cheating on my wife HAHAHA LMFAO

And I really don't like the layout of the site...JG has spoiled me And is it all SRT8 members there? It feels kinda weird to be on a site that is not inclusive of all Jeep brothers and sisters

Re: Disturbing post on Cherokeesrt-8.com about Us

Of course there is a lot of SRT8 info and stuff over there, it is a specific forum to the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8, what do you expect. It really kind of pisses me off that so many people want to talk shit about the site, when it is not the site that is messed up but the way it is being run. If people would take the time to get to know most of the senior members on that site, they would know it is a great place. Even though the admins run it tight, and way too tight in my opinion, the caliber of people are what keep me there! I am sorry, I cannot say that a forum that paid for a man to fly from Scotland for a meet and greet, that people sent free parts to other people who's GC SRT8' were blown or wrecked is a bad or terrible site. Why is this site so good....because of the people on it, period! Same with that site, the biggest difference is how the forums are ran and moderated. Yes, I do not agree with the shit that has happened with Bwoody, and am not even really worried about it because their reputation will take care of the rest! I do not agree with Johnny getting banned, but I am not going to sit here and say that that site sucks, just that the admin do! Sorry for my rant!

Re: Disturbing post on Cherokeesrt-8.com about Us

I agree completely. It's not the site that makes it a good site it's the people. And were fortunate to have everyone here!

What would you like us to cut out?

Here's what you guys dont seem to get. EVERYONE that has been banned recently, with the exception of the guy farther up in this thread that thought it would be cool to tell me off, has been banned for vending here and lieing to us about it.

"Im not selling anything here" then you get PMs from people where they're selling light harnesses through PM or conducting all kinds of business here while telling us "Hey, we're not selling anything, we're just a member like everyone else!"

What choice do we have? This place IS a business. It costs a lot to keep this place running every month... Id be willing to bet way more than you guys think it costs.

I run TurboBuick.Com also, which is not an AutoForums board, me and another guy own it together. We have the same types of rules in place there that all the AutoForums boards have. It costs us $600.00 a month for a server for that board to run on. Without vendor fees and ads, there is no way we could keep that board online. Autoforums has something like 130 forums.. imagine what their hosting bill is like every month. Now add into that that they have a full customer service/forum management staff, a sales staff and a technical support staff... their overhead is way more than 2 guys running their own forum out of a colo in Chicago.

A decent size forum requires at least one dedicated server. I know for a while SRTForums.Com, which is a very large forum, was running on 3 servers. Imagine how much THAT board costs to keep running.

Bottom line is we have a great set of vendors here. Its unfair to them that they should not receive all of our support. Its also unfair to them when people are trying to do the same thing that they're paying to do and keep it on the downlow so they dont have to pay vendor fees.

The rules here are a lot more liberal than a lot of other forums. We encourage spreading of information amongst members. We allow NSVs to be discussed, their websites linked to, etc. Thats fine for spreading the info. When you get shills and "double secret" vendors in the mix, tho, things start to get murky.

You know Scott, I agree....because it is a GCSRT8 board, it's kinda like me going on a BMW board with a VW, LOL! Although, of all the non SRT8 owners, I do believe that you get the most love and respect over there....from the people on the board.
