    Re: What happened to this forum?

    I am really new to the forum and the group. I found the group from the FB group. It's quick and easy to see the posts on FB and I have a really hard time finding the right runs for my jeep and current skill on the forum. Also, there is a lot of arguing and "My rigs better than yours" within the group which is really sad because I just haven't had the opportunity to "build" or "bolt on" as some like to call it. I simply want to meet people who have Jeeps, want to go out and wheel. Ive been the BW2CK 3 times and some other trails around AZ. I have REALLY appreciated the people who have welcomed me and helped me, and included me. I am developing my driving skills and also learning things about my jeep on the trail as I go. It is sad to see posts that put others down and we are all in the same jeep club. Yes, I can sort through the insults and criticisms for driving a mall crawler or for not having a lift (YET!) but it does deter me from being more active on the forum. Luckily, at the end of the day, I am able to meet others and go wheeling so it's all good for me!

    Re: What happened to this forum?

    I haven't read all the posts but I just dont do facebook, I've tried it just seems stupid to me, not our FB site, never been there, but just in general I think FB is stupid. And what the hell is tappatalk. LOL

    Like I said I didnt read all the posts but enough were mentioning some angry bad behavior there. Never understood that for a couple of reasons. One is if your not having fun on the internet your just doing it wrong. Two is we're all human and say stupid crap on occasion. Lighten up on the stupid crap perps and dont get caught up in it. Normal perps eventually get normal after a bit so long as we respond to it in a non-perp way.

    Don't take too much of the ribbing seriously. Go on Pirate and read some of the threads. We are pussycats compared to them.

    Maybe we could start a new thread every week recapping what was posted on the FB group.

    *lurking in the shadows*

    I seem to find more interest in smaller groups of like-built jeeps, so I sit in the corner in the baby jeep section and just wait for something fun!

    (PS fun to be had sooner than later!)

    And I almost never watch videos, and really don't look for Jeep pics. I'm interested in the discussion.

    I guess im just more interested in the offroading and offroad knowledge that an offroad forum provides. Facebook just doesnt interest me, too much drama.
