Default Anyone else been following the shitshow at Pirate?

I'm guessing we are next to kill off the last 10 of us that come here.

The site is being revamped to look like www.jkowners.com www.powerstroke.org and https://www.fordgt500.com/

I wish I was, but my work IP is banned, so I can't login while I'm VPN'd in, which is 95% of the time I'm at a computer. Been trying to separate myself from my stupid phone and social media the rest of the time....usually without much success.

Corral and RZRforum made the switch too. I didn’t like it at first. Now I have gotten used to it, and prefer it.

I don't like it at all.

This site is much more user friendly and it's easier to see with this color scheme.

I haven't noticed a change on pirate yet. That's the only other forum I visit regularly.

I guess I need to figure out how to cancel my $30 subscription I've been paying for years for a site I haven't visited for years.

I'm not sure they put any content on the page with the ads when you aren't logged in. That looks terrible.
