Re: Too Many Closed Topics

Jason,

Your posts don't help the "alt.ford..." situation much either. I know it's your site but lay off a little. I have dealt with Sprint, they're not that good. We went to a UUnet OC3 because Sprint would go down all the time.

Just a jfew facts reguarding the old site.
There were no closed threads due to that wasn't possible. That is a feature of this site.
I remember very well Jason having to weigh in and try to stop threads.
But the fact of him needing money to upgrade and getting more than needed speaks volumes.
I should have given more. That is why I volentered to help out. I am trying to give back a portion of what I've gotten.

Re: Too Many Closed Topics

As an old timer driving an 87 E350, I use the 6.9 forum and on down and think its the greatest advance in automotive engineering since hydraulic brakes. This bunch asks and answer questions like no other shop in the world, and for free! Closing topics is a necessity to make room for new topics, and don't they all go to the archives where you can still read them? Jason is doing a great job and if a professional wrestler can be governor of Minnesota, I'll vote the Diesel-Com ticket to put Jason in the White House.

Re: Too Many Closed Topics

mike g,
Your idea to close this site to none diesel owners is rediculous! (I should have said plain stupid). I became the proud owner of a 99 PS in 8/98! I had a Ford bias, but did like the Cummins. All the information i got on this site helped me to make an educated decision on which diesel to purchase! I am still happy with my PS!
Jason does a great job with this site, and as far as administrators go..I don't have a problem with them either. At least I can e-mail them if I disagree!
My thoughts

Re: Too Many Closed Topics

Ernest,

I didn't say a damn thing about closing the site. I said:
" I've got an idea for you Jason, open a page thats requires you to have a Ford diesel before you can participate, there ought to be a way to do it, maybe vin #'s."
Thats an exact quote I pasted it from the other post. If you'll notice the word PAGE.
If I've got a stupid idea I can handle you telling me, I'm a big boy now. But atleast let it be my idea.

Re: Too Many Closed Topics

My 2 cents,

This site is great and if the new admin. of the site want to close the thread it is ok and has been ok. They have been getting out of hand every once and a while. This keeps the same old topics (oil and ratings for instance) from starting flame wars and personal attacks. I know that I have gotten a lot of information from this site and enjoy reading the posts. Keep up the good work.

Thanks,
John

Re: Too Many Closed Topics

O.K., I'm posting in "Ford-Diesel.com". I made my previous post where I did for 2 reasons, (1)minor protest, and (2)thats where it was relavent, since it was refering to a post in that forum. I have NO problem with the fact that the moderators can, and do, close threads. My major B**** is that it is done so arbitrarily. Harmless topics that will run out soon anyway are closed, and inflamatory, controversial topics are not. Some things are moved as inaproprate, and other ,less appropriate ones are not.

I guess the big change has come about with multiple moderators. When Jason was doing all the moderation there was a great deal of consistancy. Obviously, he was also working himself to death. Multiple moderators lead to multiple viewpoints on administration. I just wish you could all agree on a standard, and everyone follow through. I mean no offense by this, I just think there needs to be a little bit more consistancy of purpose.

my 2cents worth

Re: Too Many Closed Topics

I must say that I do find it hard to choose what to move or what to leave. Fortunatley, I keep after the 6.9/7.3L forum, so there aren't near as many messages as the 99+ forum. My point of reference is the old forum; I read it rather thoroughly, and I'm trying to keep it near to how it was. However, I sometimes "break the rules." Specifically, I try to leave for sale and wanted ads in the forums, because people in it are probably trying to buy or sell something relevant. (I think I'll start suggesting an extra post in the "for sale" section, just to be politically correct.) If you or anyone has any sugesstions on what you specificaly want to see moved or left alone, please pass it on.
