Let's fix SHO

Fix SuperHonda


Some of you may not remember this, but there was a time when SHO wasn't sarcastic all the time. Not all the veteran members were jaded pricks who constantly flamed each other, and new members had a little respect for this place. Most of that respect was taken directly from the veteran members, who had respect for it themselves. Unfortunately for all of us, that's changed in the past few years.

As things stand, SHO sucks. I don't like to say it any more than you like to hear it, but there are serious problems here. I'm not talking about the ads, or the lack of themes, but instead about the lack of communication. Our moderators have limited power, and limited authority. We really need a dedicated admin/web developer who can help this site get back on its feet. Disgruntled members aren't good for anyone, and there's nowhere for us to offer suggestions where they'll be heard.

I'm tired of wishing that someone would step up to the plate. It really is time for us to either push our community forward and have an empowered leader or to move on. As it stands, the owners of the site are not willing to put forth any effort to improve this situation (our last Admin I know of was ekool, who disappeared without answering many of the questions we had posed to him).

The end result is that our off-topic section is the only active area (and even that's dwindling), and new traffic isn't being drawn in by the technical articles and build threads that used to exist here.

If you'd like to make a difference, please cast your vote on the poll (all votes are viewable). The choices are simple, but if you have any questions ask them here before casting your vote. If you have suggestions for the site, post a reply. The results of this thread will be sent to the owners of the site, as a petition to turn SHO around and bring it back to what it was when I first joined: a friendly community of Honda enthusiasts.

umm sell outs who sold this forum and turned it all corporate who dont moderate any of the idiots that post repeated thread of the same old bull shit is what's wrong with SHO. they get mad at us when we get tired of asking the same repeated crap all the time. every other forum on the web stands by the search. we just let idiots roam. free

there was a time when we had members who knew there shit and there was a some sort of order. but certain people had these members banned in the process of trying to put of little money in their own pockets. I'm obviously one of those jaded pricks speak of. We used to have some knowledgeable members here but now we have a bunch of ricer pretenders who can't even use Google

we can't fix sho since it a corporate piece of shit here simply to post ads for ricers to waste their money on

I come on here about once a day now, for a while I had just stopped coming and found other site to post on. I come back and its still the piece of shit it was when I left. I have started posting back in the civic forum where I once lived back when sho was something. I've started answering questions that no one really knows the answer to around here, since all the real tuners have either left or got banned in the sell out. if something doesn't happen I will leave and this time for good.

I have to disagree. We still have power here. If we all stop posting, the traffic will stop flowing. They need us here. Maybe they don't realize it yet, but this is our chance to be heard.

I'm tired of sitting back and waiting. That shit is done.

unfortunately the people who really care have moved on. I'm not on the forum as frequently simply because I don't really have time for it. I moderate as much as possible deleting/banning all the spammers I come across. in terms of tech, I just get frustrated when I see the same thing over and over again. most of the time i'll provide a link if its not too obvious and I have time to do so. I usually just say search and close the thread though if its just super super basic.

but I agree this forum has become one big advertising billboard catering to the rice crowd. at least I can turn off the annoying intelliads thru my usercp. I wonder if the regular members can?

ummm. there is maybe 20 of us that even car about this forum anymore and about 500 members that are just a complete waste of cyber space. there noway to really moderate this site anymore since it's so out of control. if we stopped posting the site would go further down the shitter. than you'd have ricers giving advice to newbie's unchecked

i think they should let me be a mod/admin I would take care of the problems we are having. its not like I don't sit on the computer all night after work anyways I have tons of free time to police this shithole and make into what it once was. i would add themes and you know me i listen to the problems of the people, shit i was complaining just as much.

a vote for me is a vote for change, elect me as admin and there will be change, change, change. j/k with the repeating change thing you know obama kind of joke. but seriously let me run this shit and I will change it for the better.

i fully believe that this site can be turned around, nut this site went down hill when the mods and admins who cared were banned and new ones were not elected. im not much on adding themes, as im def. not a web designer, but i would like to run to be a moderator if possible. im always informative to noobs and stern when needed(check my posts for comfirmation as well as anyone else on the rex forum). i know of at least 3-5 others that would be good for higher positions.

this site has plenty of people who still care, they were just forced to the background by mounds of spammers and people who like to see their post count rise for no admirable reason

I've only been here for like a yr and some months, but still I hardly come on anymore just because non of the very good write up threads are stickied, the posts aren't monitored for gay crap, the classified section is a joke, and noobs want to be spoon fed...

If needed I can be a mod or something to help. So ya just showing my support for change SHO or leave for good.

But dude, YOUR a mod. your saying in effect that your one of the people who dont care. you have some of the power to change this. in order to fix the issues that we are trying to solve, we will need the support of every admin, mod and super mod that we can get, including you. We all have a responsibility as people who joined this site in its hey-day to try and restore it to its once unsurpassed greatness.

As a mod, start seeking out people who spam, or make senseless threads and ban them straight the fuck out, no second chances. if you do your part as well as the othe mods, we will see immediate responsiveness, if not by the powers that be, then at least the noobs will think twice before they make a stupid thread

Well, I'm very sorry to say this, but it sounds like there's a bit of a misunderstanding as to what mods and supermods have authority to do (I'm speaking in general vbulletin terms, I'm not sure what permissions are laid out here specifically).

Mods have the power to close threads and submit ban requests. Supermods can do the same, and they can ban people. It's as simple as that.

Right now, the owners of the site are just trying to collect a paycheck from the site, as they should. They paid a shitload of money for it, and deserve to at least cover their losses. The catch is that they're going to end up losing money unless they do something (or even allow something to be done).

If our mods and super-mods don't have the time or interest to monitor the site as they used to then maybe it's time to pass the torch.

What I'm really shooting for is someone to take responsibility for the site. The owners don't care to (and I don't care to have them) and we need a dedicated person around to make sure things go smoothly. Is that so much to ask for?

When this poll closes, I hope to show this thread to the "powers that be" (who I'm sure even the supermods don't hear from) and they can make their decision then.

+1

I use to be an active contributor to this forum. After all the bs, I fell back to the bare minimal of lurking and started posting on other forums. (motorcycle forums). To many noobs, arguing, pointless thread...etc!

I check here and there but I have no interest in contributing here anymore on a consistent basis.
