I became a member of trailvoy recently and I must admit that it's a little obvious the drama that happened. I got bits and pieces as I scoured trailvoy, but the welcome activation email from GMTnation makes it blatantly obvious that this site does not exactly like trailvoy. INTERESTING.

I'm not particularly interested in getting involed in the past drama, just looking to share experiences etc. with guys & gals that enjoy the same stuff that I do.

So I joined this site too :wink:, which looks like it is much more active and that I like. (ironically enough, just in the past week I saw a trailvoy member post a new thread, only to be the second poster on the same thread two days later saying "where is everyone?") Now I know!

Hopefully you all don't hate on me because I didn't join here first :wink: Gotta get the google count up!

Welcome! Unlike the OS, GMTN welcome members not ban them for asking or being affiliated with others.


Hope you have a great time here.

Welcome!

Unlike some other forum splits, where two factions of members formed cliques that didn't get along, until finally one clique split off, in our case there really isn't a remaining "clique" left at trailvoy.

It was the majority of the active posters, 100% of the unpaid volunteer staff and admins, folks who organize meets and the Carlisle get-together, ALL of us who make up what you think of as the community said sayonara to the profit-mongering Canadian-based third owners of the site. We all left at once in protest to the owner's policies. I characterized it as a jailbreak.

There's really nobody left there who cares. No moderators. Very few technical folks who answer noob questions. Nobody replies anymore to Introduction threads. No Trailblazer owners in the corporation that owns the site. But they don't care because all they do is sell ads, and the raw membership numbers are what they value. Not happy owners who get answers to their questions. Not enthusiasts who enjoy meeting fellow enthusiasts. A million posts in the archives, many of them posted by members now here at GMTN. But like a dusty library with few visitors, it's just getting moldy. It used to be a shining light of what an excellent forum COULD be. Many new members commented on how different it was from other automotive forums. Yes, it WAS different. Now that culture is here. :yes:

Recently on Trailvoy, a 3+ year contributing member with 1,800+ posts had to be informed that the 4.2 I6 engine has fuel injectors.:hopeless:
