This week you will notice many changes in the theAMCForum.com. We've initiated a major upgrade to the forum software that will add more features, improve stability, and make the site even easier to use. Another change comes in the form of the way the forum itself is run.
A little background on this site is needed to understand where we came from, how we got here, and where we are going. There were several forums in the mid 2000's that came and went on the owner's whim; when they decided to disappear, so did the site, along with all the info. In 2007 this happened to what many of us felt was a great site, and Billd and I got together with the idea of a site with shared ownership, and along with several of the moderators from that forum, launched theAMCforum.com in July 2007. Since that time the site has been very stable, without severe service outages and a steadily increasing membership base. We're all proud of the work we've done here and how it has grown, but we also realize when it is a good thing to reinvent things from time to time.
Effective today, Billd and I are empowering 4 contributing members here to act as moderators, with us functioning as the board of governors. Moderators will be in charge of making sure posts are in the correct areas, on topic, etc. The moderators can recommend members to us when further action is needed; they will not have the power to ban or suspend members.
Another change is that rules for this site have been greatly simplified. We felt that the current list read too much like a legal document, and left too much to question. The new rules are posted in the general chat section, and we encourage everyone to read them and share your thoughts with us.
This site has grown through the contributions of it's members, and that is the only way it will continue to grow. This past year there have been many challenges, and we're ready to move past those and get back to what this site is all about: guys (and girls!) talking about AMC, Rambler & Jeeps. That is the key to growing our site. One thing we promise is that this site will never become a business venture as long as we are involved; it is a free site supported by it's members and advertisers, that is all. We have never taken any money from it, and never will. Any donations made go strictly toward the operation of the site.
Here's to a great 2012!
Billd & Kirkwood
