    Frankly I think the move to Facebook was stupid and has attracted more spam,and will attract more freakin retards to our forum, would have rather paid out of pocket to use the site than be associated with Facebook. The idea that we need Facebook to survive is totally idiotic, the reality is that Facebook needs websites like ours to survive, not the other way around, they feed off of websites like this like leeches til they own the whole Internet in one way or another, it's really unfortunate that ephatch had to become a pawn in their game. The other forums I frequent wont switch to Facebook and they are way more niche community, like galantvr4.org, there's only 3000 of those cars in this country so their a lot smaller than us and they don't have problems.


    Facebook will eventually die, that's a fact, why would you link your site with something that is using you to continue its existence, not symbiotic relationship, they are a leech.

    I mean the website feeds on personal info, why would you become someone else's food.

    A) And yet you're still not a site sponsor.
    B) The relationship is a mutualism.
    C) While I don't like Facebook, I'm not sure if you're just using hyperbole for the sake of argument here or you are honestly this vitriolic about an option on our website to link your Facebook profile in a move that puts no more money in their pockets. They survive on advertising purchased by event organizers and corporations, not off the corpses of small forums. You are blowing this completely voluntary option we've made available to our members way out of proportion.

    QFT!

    The other reason the Facebook Group was created was because the site was having issues and it was difficult to keep up with what was going on. Also, while I am working, it is easier to get on Facebook than Ephatch.com. I am sure everyone would LOVE to be on the site while at work, but there are some things our bosses would not like. Being on Facebook and checking in on the group is easier to do while at work.

    Could someone update the FS section rules?

    I know the post count rule changed. Are there no more rules at all now?? i.e. multiple threads, no set prices, etc.

    Are signatures gone or is there now a requirement to get that feature? Or am I just being a bone head and can't find it in the settings? Thanks, lol.

    It disappeared before I ever became a mod, but I always thought there was no real "back end" to it. Even when we had one we used this thread, for better or worse.

    Truthfully I've gotten so burnt out on reporting about 6 spam threads every few hours that I've started checking for it less often.
