Default how many 4x4 sites do we need?

really people, why do we need more local 4x4 sites?

If everyone would ban together, wouldn't just 1 be enough?

discuss :tonka:

Not everyone gets along. That is the MAIN reason why some won't come over here and join. Maybe CC can elaborate on that.:tonka:

ya with 4,000 ideas on what to do too

and they could give a shit any way . that meeting is there to shut you up cause you had a chance to speak . not that they listen .

Want change ! hire a shumck in lansing called a " lobbiest "

Thumbs up

Different personalities and interests.

Some personalities play nice with others, some don't. Some are into rockcrawling, some are into mud. Some are family friendly, others not so much so.

Each local 4x4 site is very different from the other. There is a lot of cross posting but each forum has its own feel.

I like multiple forums for my multiple personalities.

The best part about the fighting is when you have grown people who get upset with you because you are friends with someone they dont like. :tonka:

I think the one i know makes 24k per year if he is on the clock working for you and he is the type that has many different clients, He only really comes into play when something his clients do not like comes across the floors, I dont want to know what a 'dedicated' lobbiest makes...

G-man and myself try to stay open minded. and let people be who they are with out judgment. we don't have to live in each others lives but I think gathering Like the Pig Gig are a great start. Just the Age gap and the different back grounds of all the people that gather for that event and all get along!! (Not counting the one local boy causeing a stink) How great is that? Its just to bad that we could not do this on the internet as well and stop judgeing each other or jumping on someone because there Idea of life is different then yours.

Ok rant over...... Sorry....... :dunie:

Well, It would be best to share one for sale section, and a tech section.. and slowly, this site is moving some other sites in.

Frankly, there are people who just bitch about everything, and it is awesome if they stay elsewhere.

Through all my years of being on forums, and ever since I started my first "bbs" on the good ol' 2400 baud modems, I have been learning..

This site is the result of me watching 10's of failed sites, and seeing what caused their destruction..

I think everything is in check here, and growth is very good..

The secret to running a good site is *** ** ******** to much, and ** ******* ***.

:tonka:


there is hopefully going to be a pretty good size site merging into gl4x4... I won't jinx it though...

Once we hit 5000 members, I'm selling out to a bmw driving californian anyways.. so I wouldn't bother sticking around.

go to misfits
