    I dunno...I've lost that loving feeling. Just kind of feels like getting cheated on and you don't ever feel the same way again.

    Good way of putting it.

    Frankly, the smart thing to do when new owners take over a successful website is to try and make the switch over as seamless and unnoticeable as possible. Nothing could be further from that here. Going to "Autopia Version 2.0" was (and is) a horrible decision, and as it turns out, just the beginning.

    The site is still not completely fixed either. I don't get any email alerts to subscribed threads.

    I disagree..it was seamless and unnoticeable...for 7 months or so after they bought it, while they still had DavidB running it. Then he disappeared and it's been like no one is home since then.

    If there's been one thing I've learned about this crazy virtual world, is, if you have a problem, you have to be on it instantly and over-fix it. That goes for product/shopping problems and forum problems, because they are inevitably intertwined. If you have a store problem, it will wind up on the forums, and you'd better handle it quick or everybody and his brother will be on it. If you have a forum problem, you'd better handle it quick, or it will wind up on a bunch of other forums...

    Don't hide your feeling Griz, tell us how you really feel :D

    The change over to the new forum is what killed the place for me. They had all kinds of issues and didn't really seem to want to correct them.

    I would be scared to buy anything from their store if its ran like the forum is...

    they need to bring DavidB back (he was pretty active), he would of been on that virus/hack issue immediately. no matter what though, IMO it's always going to be his board despite being sold...

    Sorta like the Old Coke and New Coke discussion. If you liked the old, you will not likely like the new one.

    Yes, you are absolutely 100% correct about that. My bad for not mentioning that part of it.
