Those adds don't appear for me either, on mobile or PC.
Members have not been lost...they can choose to post or not. I lost my original user name in the password dump debacle whatever it was.
Meh, who cares, its just a forum....the main reason forums have slowed is the fact that times change, people move on and its harder than ever to keep these cars going.
Not to mention that every question ever asked has been asked a million times and answered...in the same.
The diehards are still here, simple google search Q&A are mostly ignored, but specific query's are still fielded.
This forum is better than its ever been, moderators leaving technical discussions to run there course, those with real world experience not being outed because some butthurt goon cries to a moderator..
Bottom line is, if you have to ask how to build something on a forum, your prolly never gonna build anything and you can't educate ignorance.
remember, this is all free...its a community service...not like MR2.com that took money from members...data mined and still disappeared.
These stupid things are seasonal and happen across the internet not just here. They are a result of one of our ad partners letting these through when they are not supposed to. We report them to our ad traffic team. Can you tell me what browser you are using and if you are on android or apple?Here is a collection of screen grabs from my phone. Took only a few min to get these issues :mad2. I was able to reproduce it several times. Not an issue with desktop. The middle picture is history -> you can see, its impossible to return to MR2OC.com from the ad in some cases. :computerk
Thats exactly how I find it, also allows users to spew their own brand of truth without challenge.main reasons for lost members is Facebook. The classic car forums had a way better set up, but people are already on Facebook and it's easy to find car groups on there, even though most of them are nowhere near as good as the separate car forums used to be. a jumbled mess of posts and likes, with maybe a few good photos and useful comments hidden in the mess
