Question Mods deleting threads about n54tech.com. An explanation please...

Every thread I've seen pop up about n54tech.com has been deleted. I do not see anywhere in the site rules that states we are not allowed to discuss other websites. I for one am getting pretty tired of he biase$ you (Mark and Jason) are displaying lately. This issue, as well as a handful of others. This is not an attack, I'd just like some kind of explanation as to whats been going on lately...

why would this site, promote another site (<<--that in itself is enough reason), that is formed by a person that was banned from this site. if you allow that, then it negates the fact that you banned him in the first place. besides why would there be a thread on this forum about another forum talkng about the same subject?

You need an explanation? I just popped over there to take a look. Took me no more than 5 seconds to determine why the admins delete references to the site. Not making a value judgment, you understand; just noting that you'd have to be brain dead not to know the reason.

I just checked the site out again and its still lame. You go into a thread and its the same 5-6 members, the annoying ones when they were here. No technical insight about anything, just blah blah Juicebox blah blah better than Procede. They have a thread congratulating Terry for getting 100 members in a day. Typical JB B.S.

What VIP issue?

*supposedly* a member getting banned for pm'ing the price of the intake to another member. Which is ridiculous in the first place, because it should have been allowed to be posted in his review thread.

Ah thats right. Yeah. Well its their rules and we gotta live by them. Besides, I've seen the price for it and it's wayyyyy too expensive. I've wait for other alternatives.

I'm not shocked at all that links to a what could possibly be a competing forum are being deleted. I would be more surprised if they were not.

This is why (and should get the thread deleted!)

So what - this is pretty much the the Vishnu site - let Terry have his own site - just don't go there if you don't want! I don't see why deleting the posts will make any difference or why the admins care - I would leave it up, go take a look and then you will be back cause not much is going on over there!

My question is, why is this the only site you post a thread about N54.com? Can't find any thread started on bimmerfest or Bimmerforums. Just wondering why this site is so lucky to have you post it here and nothing at those sites.

I went over there. Thought originally, maybe only 5 people might sign up or so, and I felt sorry for Terry. But its way over 100 members on its first day of operation. E90Post benefits because they don't have to worry about Terry trying to come back here with all the heated Juicebox discussions. People here that don't want to read about Juicebox info anymore will benefit, because there will be less of that here now. Now members here can focus on info that they get (or don't get) from Shiv, etc. Those people who want to read about Juicebox, racing topics, etc, can join over there if they want. Interestingly enough, there are more and more Procede people joining over there and offering great discussion. And that is a good thing. The other forum actually welcomes members with other kinds of tunes with open arms. I for one want to see more about Procedes there too. There is no commercial sponsorship requirements there that could create more bias. It makes it much more informative and less boring when you see the whole perspective. That is the reason I was disappointed Terry got banned here. For it's first day, N54Tech.com is doing pretty good. Once they get over a 1000 members there, it should get pretty interesting.

Thats a great idea, as long as they don't delete over there....someone should definitely go over there and offer an alternative/specialized site. If someone doesn't by tonight, I will try and do it myself. The more members the better. It benefits everyone. I have seen some of the most informative members here have now joined and offered great info on N54Tech.com also. Its all good.

And who will care about this site other than Procede "boys"? It's becoming clear this site is focusing on all things Procede. Typical Procede B.S. (using your words).

In the end I think it's a good thing. If E90Post is recognized as the Procede forum and N54 the JB forum.

Its not a JB Forum. At first I thought it was but if you go check it out you'll see that they are discussing other topics besides JB.
