Forum will be closed later today.

It has been fun, interesting experiment and a lot tamer than I expected :)

You know I thought the same thing, looks like the AMC Pacer in here. They say you dont want to know how sausage is made. To be frank, when you have a semi-moderator/ moderator erasing threads or posts and banning participants that tends to stifle the discussion.
Bro, in all honesty, you should have made the segment "Ask Greydread" that dude tends to give real good advice for the cognizant among us. Now if anyone listens to it is a another thing.

I question whether this sort of idea has interest to the "so called" members here.....

Personally..... who cares?

Perhaps a better question is whether anyone cares about what the members' interests are ?? ?

Like anything born from a bunch of beers, sometimes it works, sometimes not :)

It was created to see what would happen.
Now we have the results, test over.

We have admins and moderators, nothing semi :)

it was a bad idea badly executed,but at least you tried something different

you could try an unmoderated section- with only adverts deleted, with a warning to only enter if you have thick skin and a strong stomach

It was a good attempt to help the guys. It takes more than one man to give a better picture. It would take the advice and opinions of different personalities to possibly give decent advice.
Badpiece33 is a good teacher because he has been there, done that and has the Tshirt but he kinda forgets to go back to his starting point in the DR.
New issues will come up and and DR1 member will give opinions and advice and guess what..... most of it will be ignored and taken as an insult. Sometimes we can not learn from others mistakes as we should.

Perhaps you could try moderating?

I don't understand why you want to close this forum. It has been entertaining. Dr. Badpiece is a very good relationship specialist and has provided some valuable advice. I think he can help more people in the future.

I wouldn't exactly call him a very good relationship specialist but he does give good advice about how to be rico suave with the women.

Just to clear things up, I moderated this forum very lightly and let badpiece do his thing.

I am still wondering who deleted your thread. I did close a thread but it was not yours and banned a very annoying person with the constant pm's I was receiving and ESPECIALLY when this poster decided to insult me.

I wish voluteer moderators would lose the need to apologize. It must be a thankless job with very little pay.
Complainers are free to voluteer to be moderators.
kudos to you guys/gals for your time am patience!

That will only happen as a pay for access or access based on posting history.
This type of forum, you will NEVER see on DR1 for all to enter.

It was created over a few beers and to see what would happen.
It was originally planned to last 24hrs, it lasted longer :)
