I think having the Ur Members on D-90 is really cool. If heads were posting LR shit back in yahoo groups and still own and work on one that is pretty freaking awesome. I was big into the Audi forums (hence the Ur) back in the roaring internet 90's and saw the Audiworld forum blowup. Hearing tips and stories from you guys makes D-90.com what it is. I know I've taken a bunch from reading your posts Ron.
Any sport/activity I do you have to put in the time and sweat in. The crew I ride bikes with, you show up and haven't done any work on the trails don't expect to be getting texts to ride and you'll be getting a cold shoulder on the deck. Rookies on my hockey team need to bring post game beers.
I can see why the new owners would buy D-90 Source and make it bit more mainstream. If the new Defender comes into market they might have a forum worth a little money and good for them. But they provide us with a working forum, PM space, image space, and a free classifieds section. But they should take care of those members that made the site what it is. Seems like if people are complaining that the site is getting soft then set up a zone for people to get loose. I mean what would a good bar be without the crusty locals making a bunch of noise?
