Thanks <3

It would be a shame for a good club like this to dissappear into the abyss, just need a few more people now...

Sorry I've been really inactive here guys, shit's been going on in my life, and it's not gonna end anytime soon.

Giving absolute control to one member is a bad idea, since shit can happen, as I've proven.

How about this: due to my inactivity, I am granting you, Rohan and SupraAddict (assuming he withdraws his resignation) control over the club, vis-a-vis keeping it going, accepting new members etc. As founding members, you deserve it. As for HTID, he's disappeared as far as I can see.

Also, if you guys are not around, I would be grateful if NEVR and Life-Stream would also act in this role. I could understand if NEVR can't with his modship duties, but both of you are seasoned BBS users with the maturity to keep this club on the right track.

As well as day-to-day running, if there are any outstanding members who you guys feel should have some power in the running of the club, decide it with consensus please.

In a nutshell, here's the new chain of command:

-RohantheBarbarian, BobbaQ and (hopefully) SupraAddict: Club leaders
-NEVR and Life-Stream: Leaders in the absence of the above guys.
-After that, the other members can make decisions by consensus.

Sorry about this guys, hopefully I will be around soon enough, but who knows.

Holy shit, I had a feeling things were a bit stale, but this isn't good at all. I feel that this is partially my fault, as it's been a while since I've posted here.

That sucks man, hope you pull through ok.

Assuming that nobody has any objections to this, I would be more than willing to work alongside you guys in the runing of the club.

-RohantheBarbarian, BobbaQ and (hopefully) SupraAddict: Club leaders
-NEVR and Life-Stream: Leaders in the absence of the above guys.
-After that, the other members can make decisions by consensus.

Again, I would have no issues with this. If it can help to resurrect the club then I will accept this.

Sorry about this guys, hopefully I will be around soon enough, but who knows.

Hope things work out for you dude.

Ok, I will not resign, and it isn't about leadership that has gotten to me, it is the lack of conversation-a very common club-killer. MGSTroll, I'd be happy to co-lead, but you still have the role of leader, which means the painful task of updates every week or so(trust me, I know it's a pain in the neck, because of my crew, but its an important role.)

I understand that the lack of conversation is a problem, but hopefully a shake-up will get things back on track.

As for me retaining leadership, I wouldn't mind it, but for the foreseeable future I'm gonna be inactive. Could one of the new leaders copy/paste the members list in my blog and put it in their one? With my inactivity, I won't be able to keep it up to date.

Also, could you PM the others on that list to see if they are interested in retaining their membership? If they don't respond in a week, cut them from the list. If they return eventually, put them back on it.

Goodbye guys, hopefully I will return soon, but things don't look too good right now.

Response to The Car Enthusiasts Club 2008-10-05 13:06:34


I'd probably be OK with looking over the club in something of an advisory position. I'd mod it anyway if there was something that needed my attention, but I'd feel more comfortable letting the other guys you mentioned take the driving seat so that I can just sit back and only pull rank if / when I need to.

I'll take care of it, it's been a while since I've updated my blog anyway.

Bobba and Supra, could one of you guys please take care of this? Just get back to be about who ahs responded and who hasn't, and I'll update accordingly.

Well thank God for that. Long live the CEC!

I wasn't trying to do a coup or nothing, honest :P

Well guys, I've assumed responsibility for the memberlist, I sent a PM to MGSTroll and he gave his blessing. It's on by blog page, please take a look to ensure there are no errors. I also posted the current chain of command, but as he founded the club, I've afforded MGS the luxury of returning to full power should things in his life work out.

As for PMing other members to gauge their commitment to the club, I apologise if it seemed like I was trying to shirk that responsibility, but with my variable activity due to college I wouldn't want to impede progress.

I know that I asked Supra and Bobba to take care of that, but if you guys can't I'll see what I can do.

Thanks again for taking care of that for me :)

Don't worry about that, taking care of the memberlist is enough.

I know that I asked Supra and Bobba to take care of that, but if you guys can't I'll see what I can do.

That's a little unfair on you to be honest Rohan. How about this: if Bobba and Supra don't want to do it, any member can volunteer to do it, as long as they PM you first. It's only a once-off job, after one week it will be taken care of.

Well guys, this is where I take my leave. See you guys.

I'll do it but it'll be a while before I can do it because I've got work and some other stuff to sort out before I go to bed tonight. If I don't get around to doing it in an hour could you ask Supra to do it instead please? I'll let you know when I've PM'd everyone on the roster list on your profile.

If i was ever going to buy a new car it would either be Japanese or German, i´d never look at a chinese car.

Response to The Car Enthusiasts Club 2008-10-07 21:54:19


defintly japanese cars they are the best, mostly the nissans rwd eg. the silvias cefiros and skylines. Silivias are really good drift cars.

Sorry I couldn't help out much, if it wasn't for the work ahead of me to do, I could probably dedicate my time to the business here. I'm confident this club will be in good hands since NEVR, BabbaQ, and Rohan are here

Haha, that's at least 4000 times better than a Crown Vic. The only people I've ever seen driving a Crown Vic other than cops are old people. Charger just kicks ass.

ikr
Especially if your chasing a drunken motorcycle driver! Those craphole Crown Victorias will never catch up! But with a charger... depending on teh acceleration.. it could catch-up in a matter of seconds!

I agree. It does look good. But it's a little different from Lamborghini's other designs, right?
I'm guessing it's a new 2009 model!

Man, oh man, is that a good-looking car or what? I think I'm in love lol.

What I like most about it though is that it seems to be a bit of a deviation from the current Lambos. The Gallardo, the Murcielago et al are all great cars, but in terms of looks they're too similar for my taste. In saying that, I still wouldn't mind owning either of them ;) .

i know what you mean, but it´s still a beautiful car like you said. Besides, it´s happening to alot of cars now a days....just look at nearly all the new Audi´s - they´re basically the same, just a bit bigger or smaller.
