    Our admin jman423 has been off the scene for a while, but we found out over the weekend why. He's been negotiating a cease-fire and merger of GMTN back with Trailvoy. The name of the new combined site will be GMTTVN, and since they have NO volunteer moderators at the moment, our team will take over clean-up of the wasteland that Trailvoy had become. Lots of work to do - lots of noobs to welcome and bring up to speed.

    The purchase price is confidential, but suffice it to say that there is more than enough to go around, not just for the moderator team, but also all contributing members of GMTN. Make sure you all tell us your Paypal account details, but we anticipate a payoff ratio of around 4.1-to-1, so if you are in at the $25 level, you will be getting a one-time transfer of $102.50. Sorry we couldn't make anything work out for the non-contributors, but that's the breaks.

    We have to bury the hatchet, but it was significant that VS made the first overture, being over a year since the Great Exodus. They realize their style of advertising to noobs who only came looking for a helpful community was a bankrupt one in the long term, and was only cementing their reputation as the Internet Destroyer of Communities. Merging back in with GMTN is their attempt at repairing this poor reputation and they are highly motivated to make it work. From re-opening the sticker store to funding a presence at Carlisle to assisting with BBQ food at regional meets.

    So welcome the Trailvoy Admin (as soon as I approve his membership so he can post here and not get banned) and don't let the animosity of the past color your affable good natures. I know it took me a while to embrace the concept of a friendly merge, but I'm with the program, and you can trust me it's a good thing for the community.

    :undecided:
    i figure, by Roadie's calc., and my monetary contribution, i've got approx. $410.00 coming.
    which i would turn around and re-invest in a new site (started of course by our current admin & staff)
    because w/ in a short time, VS would turn the new GMTTVN into a ghost land, just like TV.
    then the new site would do so well, VS would come w/ another offer.
    but, this time, the newest site is SOO BIG AND POWERFUL, that it purchases VS in a hostile takeover.
    :undecided:

    Nice one Roadie

    I should have mentioned that VS bought our loyalty this time with a non-compete agreement backed by a five figure payoff.

    But that was supposed to be confidential. :undecided:

    The other mods should get an email (sent to the email that they used when they joined trailvoy) which will reset their password and account.

    I still can't get into the mod CP over there though.:mad:

    BTW who da fuck is Jake?

    Bro I got another kid on the way and we're living off of my income alone. The money I'm getting from the merge and from selling VS the rights to my youtube videos are going to help us out BIG time.
