Let me be clear, I have no interest in removing the lounge. I was only clarifying Gilbertsville PA's comment about breakfast.

Point taken. He is referring to certain threads in the Lounge, for instance:

Change of Forum Management

I know. I was being sarcastic, I apologize. I'm fairly sure he was referring to the lounge considering we don't discuss non-car related material anywhere else. I was trying to make the point that if you're not interested in the social aspect of this site, or a certain thread, then simply don't partake in that thread.


To that point, an "unsubscribe" feature would be excellent.

Re: Change of Forum Management

i come to the forums for the banter, and in between arguments I try to help out new members or answer questions.
if I couldn't fight with stevo, fillup or others, there wouldn't be much more reason to login because I already know everything :P

Re: Change of Forum Management

Internet broken telephone.

I have been an admin on enough forums for long enough to get why off topic can be popular on some sites. It becomes the way to get a brief escape from work or home to talk about current events with the same folks you talk cars with. Nothing wrong with off topic as long as people who use it follow the existing rules of the forum and only use it to hide their porn from significant others. If a forum allows NWS material its one thing but having NSW material rule a forum can quickly turn off new people. I get the joke about talking about breakfast in a thread and this reminds me of the pile of nonsense I need to sift through on Facebook each time I log in there, ha!

Now as I mentioned rules just now, I am not here to sweep in and change your rules. If there is a need for the sites rules to be updated this is discussed with the staff and usually brought to my attention by the staff. The walls have not collapsed on this place for a reason and its because good solid membership is sharing information and not stressing the staff out too much that they all want to abandon ship.

Its not for lack of trying. They're all stubborn assholes. Fatty especially.


On a more serious note, at least it seems like you have what appears to be a sense of humor and personality, so this should all be smooth enough. BTW, I'm Steve. I'm sure you'll get to know my username well.

Re: Change of Forum Management

Good to meet you Steve. "acctmaint" was a name assigned to me by the techs when they set up the account, please call me Phil.

Personality and a sense of humor help a lot in this line of work. Without it I would likely be suffering from chronic internet butthurt. and just an FYI if I come across as harsh or short ever its not the case, its usually because while dealing with something on the technical end here I could have the equivalent of a prison riot happening on five other forums and they are desperately seeking negative attention.

I think the Forum should stick to cars not what you had for breakfast.

What I am saying is if I click on "Ford Fusion/Mercury...." and I click on "Show unread posts since last visit" I would like to see only the items under the "Ford Fusion/Mercury...." tab not the lounge
