Default Getting tired of USMB

I'm starting to get tired of participating in the USMB. For someone that has almost a thousand posts, it seems like I'm of no importance over there. The few questions I've posted have gathered little, or no, response. I've either had to go to another forum that is more welcoming, or spend oodles of time looking it up in a manual. Plus some of the advice I offer over there not only gets an argument started, but in some cases, a few nasty and uncalled-for replies.

So if anyone wonders where I went (which I doubt will happen) I'm thinking about whether to continue over there...

Almost 1000 posts?

N00b!!

J/K.. I understand.. most of the time when I finally break down and ask a question its usually ignored.. mostly because the people, like Skip, that can actually answer my questions don't post much..

Honestly, the posts that get the most resonses are as follows

1)what size tires can I fit on xxx car
2)What power mods are there for xxx car
3)where can I buy a lift for xxx car

look at the first two pages of the old gen forum on any given day and you will find one or more of those topics....

Yeah, I lurked on USMB for years, but when I actually signed up, I stopped going there. I just got sick of the same old threads. I hear you suby - but whenever I actually get an old-skool sube, I'm sure I'll be around.

It's where my addiction started (member since september 1999) so I can't be hatin' 100%, but truth be told, I've been there less and less. However, I do try and contribute still since it is still a Subaru community. Age demographics are also different, so that is why this board is more appealing to me.

If I see one more post about someones Outback overheating I'm gonna' rip em a new...
USE THE SEARCH FUNCTION AND YOU WILL FIND MANY THREADS DEALING WITH YOUR PROBLEM!!!!!

i honestly prefer usmb, you might get ignored when you ask a question, but you wont usually get streight bashed and flamed like on some of the other forums.

also, the guys at usmb tend to be older and a bit more eccentric. and probably have a bit too much free time. *looks at subyrally*

The USMB is the only place for REAL old school knowledge. It's where everything started and can still be found. Yes, sometimes questions seem to get ignored, but I think some of that comes from poor thread titles. Too much to read so if a title doesn't grab my attention or seem to be something I can help with, I skip it.

so someone new comes along and posts a question. not knowing that the question is posted a million times. so should they make the registration process force them into a search before they can post?

maybe the people who actually know something should take the time to answer the question, or direct to a search result, i.e, a specific thread pertaining to the question.

if people throw fits about how many times they have to answe the same question, or push the search issue, they should not post a response to begin with.

i like to answer noobie posts myself, at least they get a real answer from someone who actually knows something.

instead of pushing the search issue, why not just compile the treads in a FAQ(which is empty) or just do some write ups on the new USRM and direct people to it.

i have searched and found people referencing the writeups that i have posted. where are the writewups? i know these guys know stuff, if they are tired of answering the same questions, maybe they shouls answer it one last final time as WRITE-UP

funny how more people dont like the usmb, i met a salesman at the soob dealer and mentioned the usmb, he said he dont go there no more. i get tired of it too if you know what i mean.
its a great board as far as the most comprehensive collection of old skool knowledge, but the guys in charge should make more of an effort to do something about it rather than bitch

trashwagon got junked due to a mishap at the alliance meet. its all good, i saved all the good parts like my modified front suspension, all the 4wd conversion parts, and the motor, tranny, and suspension lent its use to build up a hollow RX body.

trashwagon 6 still lives on with the rx's original carb-bottom turbo motor with ported heads, and the original rx full time driveline and lsd, with xt6 suspension and 5 lugs

havent been on the board or the net much recently, but i am glad to day i got the funck out of BUTLER and found my self a REAL job here in fort wayne.

The only thing on the USMB that really bugs me, and I have said this on the USMB, is that the rambelings of dreamers with bone stock or lightly modded cars are given as much if not more credence and recognition than what those who have bought or built the major mods.

At least the kid with the stock EA82T that says he's putting the greddy 18g kit on there hasn't made it over there yet..

My biggest complaints are the same as they have always been

1)no one con figure out how to use the search function
2)when I actually have a question, 90% of the time it is ignored in favor of some 16 year old who wants to know how to get his SPfi loyale into the 12s.. I guess thats just a different way of saying what you just said

everyonew tells you to search.

i read posts that start out "i tried searching but couldnt find it"

and then you get topics that are nothing but search results. so if you search for something, your results will be more searches.

does it go anywhere? the info is there, but its hard to nail anything specific

Thats true that the more posts there are, good or bad , on one topic, the more results there are going to be..

I searched for something the other day.. it brought back 15 or so pages of results.. I finally found what I needed on page 5..

Moral of the story.. big friggin deal.. it still only took less than 10 minutes

Ehh I beg to differ. When I mentioned something about putting a Nissan frame under my gen 1 brat because I'm making a minitruck out of it, I had like 6 people bash and flame me because "the frame will make it too heavy" or the way they called me "white trash". They told me I should be driving a Camaro instead of a Brat......***??? I have two Camaros and I didn't take that very lightly..... So now I'm getting pretty tired of the USMB granted thats where I've learned a lot about Subarus but I shouldn't get bashed like that. There's also a couple people that told me I should lift it and its a waste because its 4wd, etc. etc. etc. Wait a scond.....Everyone lifts their 4wd Subbies, I wanna be different. I want people to wonder why I'm running an 11 second quarter mile... DOn't worry Suby, I feel your pain

ive never seen bashinng like that over there, you should just tell em to shut up or something, there are a few jerks there, but youll find that everywhere you go nowadays. any info on your brat? i wanted a brat so bad that it hurt, but i cant afford it. i wa thinking of swapping the engine and drive train from my rx into a brat shell, but never had the time or money.

its a 1978 Brat, 4wd, 4-speed. It had a blow front driver side DOJ so I was rollin around in RWD for a few months. It was a blast especially when I dropped the JDM high compression motor into it, it was SPUNKY and talk about the burnouts!!! But now I've decided to keep it RWD but with a bigger powerplant. I have pics of it in my USMB gallery. Right now, it sits torn down getting bodywork done to it and the main unibody will get mediablasted here shortly. Then once the bodywork is done, I'll leave it in primer until I get a frame underneath it along with a 4-link rear suspension and the Nissan solid axle Then eventually, it'll get airbags and some 18's

I think the custom brat is a cool idea.. I guess I missed all the fun in your thread..I think the gen 1's are the only cool looking brats.. they are just begging to made into cool street rides.

However, if you are going to own camaros, you have to be willing to accept at least some of the ribbing about it.. the mulletmobile stereotype exists with good reason (not saying you fit the stereotype)

i have had my fair share of bashings from the board. sometimes it comes down to who you are.
somewhere along the line an impression is made, but those impressions can be borne of the reactions of the board itself

yeah i know a lot of this has been run into the ground but my point exactly. anyway it set the grounds for an interesting documentary on its way to DVD by next year
