    Everyone including Jon did not like the linkblocker, but the choice came down to using it or shutting the forum down for good (and it came very close to that), some rules have sound reasoning behind them that we are not able to publicly air.

    How do links make the site go down?

    Man, lets be real, Jon is...well, he's something else.
    Remember, this was the guy that apparently became close to homeless because of MaxPed
    Never could keep the store filled etc

    I dont see how posting a link, ANY LINK, would risk the site.
    THOUSANDS of other forums allow links and none of them have issues because of it.

    Jon's store sales were used to pay for the forum's upkeep, he was spending a lot of his time trying to find new suppliers for the store to keep the lights on here but for each company he approached he was either told "why should we sell to you when we get direct sales from the forum" or they ended up trying to make a member account to shill or promo their products and there were several that wanted Jon to give them their own sections of the forum to hawk their wares for free.

    I could go on but that is the cliff notes of that situation.

    Everything works well, and I am very thankful that this forum continues to exist...I am not one that resists change--my only problem is that
    the new format reminds me of every other forum on the net--The old model was visually unique and made me feel as if i was, well,
    somewhere special?

    Yall that are complaining about a layout on a free forum that is being run by people on their own time that share the same passion should be ashamed. I for one am grateful because now there is a mobile version that does not require stupid tapatalk. The colors mean nothing to me and no I am not colourblind.

    Meh. New layout is fine (could use some darker, warmer colors though).

    Thanks to everyone involved, especially Scribby, for their efforts. :smile_coffee:

    (In fact... I, for one, am going to make use of the Buy Us A Beer function)
