    The only thing that'll fix the Facebook group is a constant reminder... Hey, there is an actual forum out there called R3Vlimited.com!

    This kind of sums it up. I think it's underestimated how much mobile usability matters. Facebook is extremely easy to use on our phones, and whether we admit to it or not, a lot of us are already addicted to checking Facebook regularly anyways. Forum usability on mobile sucks. Even with the improvements on the new platform r3v is on, and even with 3rd party options like Tapatalk. The forum is just harder to use than Facebook, full stop.

    For what it's worth, a more clear/strict set of rules followed by [a lot] more moderation in the Facebook group would help. There are so many non-E30 related posts and things for sale, as someone else previously mentioned.

    Got a thread in that Alpina?!
    If he ever makes his way back to the track some time this season, I'll be sure to give him a hard time. (j/k)

    No thread yet. The body has been in paint for the past year because we've been doing a bunch of remodeling on the house in prep for kid 2. So maybe when I put it all back together I'll get some pix posted.

    HEYYYYYYYY

    I'm a facebook addict, but I only browse car groups. Its sucked me away from here for sure. Not sure what it is, mostly FOMO on parts deals I guess. Hell, its because of facebook R3V that I found some canuck with a 100% complete mtech 1 kit in vancouver that was willing to drive it to my doorstep in Seattle.

    I grew up on here during high school, dreaming, took a break for a while until I finally got one in 2011, then hung around until probably 2018? Simon even honored me with a COTM. I'm trying to do better. And I will update my thread! Its time to do scheduled maintenance on the s52...and there are some n52 nerds making moves over there in the 24v section, so I need to make a new thread for that project, too. Look, I'm on here at 3am, like the good old days!

    How do we update sigs?

    If only there was some large gathering in 82deg heat, where we could talk shit with hangovers...

    Should we make MRGA hats? Yikes

    Cheuk and the Criv joined me for a cruise on 1/3. The truth is out there.

    End Rant.

    Yah, I got tired of waiting for threads to load in Tapatalk, so I decided to hop on the PC. But honestly, I prefer just talking to people in person, or at the least texting. Then the snark is easier to convey. Also, I have been spending a lot of time on the Haunted Forums. I have been making props for Halloween, because 2021 is going to make up for not having a party last year (it's going to be off the chain!!)





    Now, I just have to figure out how to update my sig since I've got the new Dad Van.

    That being said, I prefer Forums over the ArseCancer that is Social media.

    Valid. Most action this forum has seen in a long time.

    Hey, that spam bot content is positively riveting and updated constantly.

    I just logged in as I do every couple of months.... and I really think I just need to delete facebook.

    Facebook groups are the reason I don't visit the forums anymore. They are also the reason why information is not readily available.

    Ugh. It is really shitty to understand the reason why something one had spent years of their life utilizing, has died off.... but also to be a willing participant.

    For what it's worth, I do think that forums will see a resurgence. At least I hope so.
