Jim I kinda like your thought here... Members I'm all ears here...
I totally agree with getting rid of that section all together!
Reasons being:
1. Creates disharmony amongst members
2. Against the law to begin with.
3. Can show new members that we disregard local laws to have fun at other people'* expense.
4. Most was just B.* stories anyways.
5. Members that posted there were most of the time just "inflating" their own "EGOS"!
6. Perfect section for "FLAMING" attacks!

Need I say more?

First off I like the On the Road idea. It'* somewhere to post about what happens on the road. (Besides, if Wren kills more racoons where will he post? )

Second of all, I agree with the Staff on locking the entire K.*. As a member I feel it is my responsibility, not just the Admins and Mods, to keep this site friendly for EVERYONE.

Upon the return of the esteemed administrator willwren, I'm sure he will read this thread. Following that, a Poll will be posted regarding the fate of the forum...however, before we do that...I would like to hear some more suggestions as to what we can do in its place

So far, I have been hearing some support for "On the Road"

Any other ideas?

On the Road sounds good. It'* a much more broad topic.

Do you all really think that changing the section'* name will stop all the BS & flaming? Come on letz get real here! I think nothing will change! Sure it might stay "Clean & Freindly" for a while, but it'll end up the EXACT SAME FATE as it is now!

As to replacing it? Why bother! The forum needs more space for better "Quality" sections in my opinion! Why do "WE" need a section to boost our own egos? "WE" all know here that "OUR" cars are great! I feel sections like this just invite "Flaming" from other members calling "BS" or by outside forums doing the same thing. At first that section was okay, but it grew into a "CRAP ON THIS" section rather quickly! I'm only repeating what some other members here have already posted in this thread & in this one: http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ic.php?t=12849

I disagree Rat. Reopening a section for road stories will prevent any "kill stories" from spilling over into General Chat or the Lounge.
It'* inevitable that crap will start up again but when it does it will be concentrated in one section and easier for the Staff to deal with it. And since now we've seen the consequences of whats happened maybe we can prevent it from this again.
That'* my harvest penny.
