September 10, 2011I have been gone from this site for about 2 years. I left because the site was going thru changes. Well, I just purchased a new Truck and thought I would visit the site to visit old friends and to just plain check out the site. This site has gotten ruined. It runs slow and has way too many pop-up ads. Yes I have no problem with the ads on the top or the right of the page because they help pay for the site. However, when they are constantly popping up and slowing this site down, it`s ridiculous. Then to top it all off, I go to my chapter and on the page it says, "sponser this page for $15". What a joke. Then, I`m on a Dodge site and here are all these ads for Toyotas and Mercedes, etc. on the page. I have nothing against these vehicles. However, this is a Dodge site. Not a Toyota or Mercedes or whatever site. Whomever is running this site has ruined it for me. I guess it will be a few more years before I come back to see if its fixed. The old site ran better and was more user friendly for the members.

September 11, 2011SORRY YOU DON`T LIKE IT !!!! This site has come along way and I for one don`t mind the bugs in the system.
September 11, 2011Sorry to hear that! I know what you mean about the ads and they bug me too! But we are trying to keep this and all the truckworld sites going the best we can. The pop-up ads pay way more than static ads and until we get a solid site sponsor or even smaller or local venders to sponsor specific/chapter forums we need these pop ups. Thats why we are advertising to have someone sponsor your chapter forum for $15. If we can get a site sponsor or even a bunch of small forum sponsors we will do away with the pop ups. We need people or members to step up and help us make this place better.
Also the ads are not site specfic as they serve all the truckworld sites.
September 11, 2011Bobram: I`m sure you work hard at keeping this site going. I mean no disrespect towards you personally. As I have been MIA as of late. However, I have been a member to this site for around 8 or 9 years. I don`t know who ran the site then but it did run smoother. I have talked to more than enough people who still like the site but don`t like the slowness of if and the pop-ups so they don`t visit very often. I remember when ads on the site consited of vendors who sold items for our trucks or even had certain days when they would offer group buys. I guess to know fault of your own and ours that the cost of running a site has come to where you or whomever owns the site either has to do this to keep it going or for their own personal gain as well. I don`t know and probably never will. So, after saying all of this, I mean no disrespect to you. I just don`t like it. The people on here are great and so is a lot of the knowledge that is available.
September 11, 2011This site sucks
too many ads and too much extra crap added
It should have stayed a simple forum. When my account, Cummins59 got banned, i stopped coming and i see i`m not the only one.
September 11, 2011Well then....its a FREE country...you can GO ELSEWHERE...There are some of us here who are trying to support this site no matter what...It`s called dedication to our Brand and this site ,something some of you may not know too much about...
September 11, 2011Other then lack of of folks on here and topics its all right.
September 11, 2011The lack of folks on here has to do with people not caring for the way the site runs.
Ron: I think maybe you miss my point. Although,since you bring up Brand loyalty. Brand Loyalty means the site that I have loyalty with that is suppose to be representing my Brand and persons whom enjoy that Brand, doesn`t have Toyota, Mercedes and other "Brands" advertising on it! You mine as well be a member of a battered wives site and have O.J Simpson`s head popping up all over it with him advertising something else! A little hypocritical....isn`t it?
September 11, 2011Gotta pick your battles...the ads don`t pop up for me ...and the ones that are here I pay no attention too...sounds more like nit picking to me...but it`s your opinion and I respect that,,,that`s how it works in the great USA
September 11, 2011The site is slow? are u on dial up?
loads fine for me, just like any other site, even the porn ones
September 12, 2011If you don`t like it here ,you don`t have to come here.
September 12, 2011Thanks Ron. I appreciate that. I didn`t mean to ruffle so many feathers here. Just wanted to voice my opinion not bring out all the "Haters", LOL. I love my Dodge Truck and I don`t mind change. I just like the way the old site ran. I thought it was geared more towards the members and not distractions.
