Important (and exciting) announcement for forum!
 
Hello everyone,
Many of you know that for the last few years my passion for the health and fitness industry has taken the front seat in my life. Some of you are familiar with my new company, MyOamteal.com and IIFYM.com have seen the rapid growth our business has been making.
As MyOatmeal.com blows up, and we continue to move forward with new projects (like YogaPants.com) I find myself with less and less time to give the forums, so It is with great excitement and encouragement that I am making this announcement to you today.

I am turning over the entire operation of all 6 sites over the qualified staff at AutoGuide.com so they can invest the time and energy as I am unable to.
Other than some new admins doing the site maintenance and behind the scenes work, very little else will change.

Thanks so much for everything you have done for me, and for the forums.

ANT

Re: Important (and exciting) announcement for the staff!
 
Hello everyone,

My name is Philip, I am a community manager for Autoguide.com, I work with a small team that will manage the webmaster duties for the site.

We are here to help primarily with the technical end of things and help make the jobs of the current Mods/Admins easier. I posted a real basic run down to answer common questions below. If you have more questions or concerns please feel free to post them in response.

What are our intentions?

We bring reliability, support and the infrastructure needed to ensure that the community will continue to be around for years to come. Itís our goal to work with the mod/admin team to help provide the resources and required work to give this community a broader reach, to attract new members, and to better the overall knowledge shared in the community.

Will leadership change?

Continuity is the focus here, YOU as the membership work very hard to keep building this community while your mod/admin team keep the walls and the roof up in this place; we are primarily here to make sure the lights stay on. Every community is unique and should always be respected in that regard. You all have established your own unique rules and regulations and a strong reputation that is carried by all of this. For us itís paramount to maintain this level of integrity and enthusiasm.

What am I here for?

Our primary role is to be the technical contact as I said earlier. You all contributed to building the strong foundation the site was built on. Moving forward we will all work together to keep the momentum and the community growing. We will be on the forum checking in daily to make sure regular maintenance is taken care of and keeping things running smoothly from behind the scenes. We will also be setting up a help desk on the site for when you have questions or issues with the site or your account and need assistance.

Looking forward to working with you all.

Thanks,

Philip

Hell IDK, I'm a 43 year old working stiff.. At this point in time I do not have suggestions, just observations... This place is barely hanging by a thread (no pun intended), we don't have drama here, so it appears as though peeps enjoy a little drama with their forum, hence (I'm assuming) is why CACO and SMD are rather busy sites..

I'm sure we could muster up some drama.

I wasn't here when ROE was in its glory so I can't comment on the bond members had back then. ROE has always been the "mature child", at least since I've been here and since I've been members of other forums. Hell maybe it's just because it was my first audio related forum, or because there is a genuine care in this community. It's a shame it's like it is but doesnt one should give up.


Anyway to inturupt myself before I get soppy.

Promos

More or less in your opinion Phillip in what ways do forums go about promoting?

Well maybe we should ask what makes the other forums unique, what about them draws people to them?

SMD has YouTube
CACO has its classifieds
DIYMA has a vast knowledge base

Those, except smd, are the main ones I frequent. DRAMA is human nature, people naturally flock to it like a fat kid to a twinki. Every forum on earth has it. No getting around it.

It's all a targeting game. We as a community have to be able to find what makes ROE unique and target effectively, efficently, and give a reason for people to stay.

The move to a new super administration was a step.

I hate to see ya go Ant. Figured it was a matter of time when diyma went. Although I participate more on SMD I have learned much more on here. I can't say much about attendance though, I'm still relatively new to the site but rarely have time for interwebs in general.

A large database of subs in action. Typically 20-40 seconds long..

Amp guts could be huge. Not many provide such a database

Re: Important (and exciting) announcement for forum!
 
Ampguts and especially excursion vids!! Many of them got ripped onto youtube. If we could implement excursion vids again, that'd be great.
