I screenshot this as I'm sure they'll delete my response in very short order.

I was just a bit surprised that they are blatantly listing "job" duties for a "volunteer"

 

"We want you to be a mod out of the goodness of your heart and do all the work while we profit off it you, and you need to do it voluntarily"

 

All of the group here have been helping people fix their rigs (and lots of other things) because we want to help people.  That's a great thing.

 

I just find it utterly disgusting that someone is trying to profit off good people helping out other people, while doing no work and having no knowledge themselves!

 

Just bottom feeding scumbags.

Looks like they took away Shade's moderator status , so there are no moderators for the site ,  they got TRX2five0 listed as the only staff member  beside Wreckless and TRX2fiveO's  last post over there appears to be 2016 , the site been running itself

I'm sure they have spy's here by now.

After I bought my 98 450ES I found the old site and joined.  Not long after I needed some engine help and got all the advise I needed to get the old girl back to running like a top.  So yes that was the site for any Honda ATV repairs but it didn't last long for me.  When they changed to VS all the "good" mods and members said it was time to leave and @retro recruited some of us to start this forum.  After we pit this into play it seems thru word of mouth and recruitment most anyone that is anyone ended up here.  So glad everything worked out the way it did, we have the best Honda ATV forum going.....cheers to us....

Yeah I started on HF with you and Rich.   It's complete crickets there now.  Very little activity at all.  I looked yesterday to see if they'd asked for mods on that one too, but they haven't.

i did get my mod status back, but right after, i never went back, been stuck right here..just like jeep said..you can find all the help you need right here !. some of us members here MADE that site what it WAS ..but seeing how all of us ( most ) moved here, we got the best site on the net. when i spoke to retro about this, he said '' i'm thinking of building a atv site that cares more about members than money, i told him..you build it..i'll bring them..they will come..ahh yes...the '' field of dreams '' movie..ring a bell ?..lol.

I was never tolerant of them, my last days there were spent pointing fingers, shouting out liars and pinning them down with their lies. I told the Admins flatly that they had two choices remaining back then... they didn't believe me (didn't believe in us) when I stated the 2nd choice remedy...

 

I never went back over there, in fact I deleted the email account (it was [email protected] 😀) that I was registered with the same day that I left so they couldn't bother me anymore.

 

I remember our "field of dreams" conversation @shadetree, we darn sure kept our promises didn't we!

Who ended up taking over the old site?

Vertical Scope.

 

They buy forums, maximize profits in the short term, kill the board, and move to the next.

 

Like a plague of locusts

Locust ?   More like bees , I was over there checking out that moderator wanted thread and you stirred them up  , kind of like poking the ant pile with a stick , or you could maybe even say , pist on the pile ,  something I have always liked to do ---  LOL

I post when there’s someone who seems serious about fixing an early Honda quad. link to service manuals and OEM parts finders; get them started. if they can thank those who help them or reach out to others…show community interest…they’ll be looking for more and better.
