    The talks about meets, local gatherings, wrench days, and long threads has only helped bring the Arizona guys togethor. Ive been on the board for maybe 15 years and there has never been a local scene. There has been other Az guys on here as long as I have, Don Graham may be the only one thats been around as long as me. But until I started these topics I never met any of them. Now we have a group of 7 or so guys that are truly interested in what the others are doing, where they are racing, what they are working on, and if they need help.

    Stefan moved the thread and if thats where he wants it then its fine with me. As long as we use the thread for local chat then there shouldnt be a problem. I still post my tech help questions in the tech forum cause the more heads the better, sometimes.

    As long as im a supporting member and in good standing with stefan, i dont see the need to go to facebook or any other method of media. maybe you should find better things to do with your free time.

    These few people who chat about mavericks in
    AZ. certainly are no bother nor interest to you.
    SIMPLE ENOUGH?

    AND.....as long as you follow Stefan's simple rules.....then you will be just fine. The rest of us follow the rules.

    And for what it is worth.....I did not have a problem with the thread. But it looks like somebody else might have. And to be fair.....we all just have to follow the rules.

    SO the talk about who met who at an infamous BBQ place near geargia in the General maverick forum isn't any worse than us talking about who is doing what in AZ, in a thread in a forum titled Other Clubs and Events? I just dont see where there is a rules violation other then a few random tech questions in our AZ. thread. And I admit I was in the wrong for posting things for sale to the Az. guys and Stefan and I already talked about that and deleted them.

    The thread is moved and the guys that use it have found it. SO we can have out local chat there. If we have something to say to the group then we use the general forum. If we have local news, events, or Bs'ing we can use the AZ. thread. Many times the chat isnt relevant enough to warrant its own thread anyways. And those that dont care about what we are doing dont have to look at it. I thought having a thread like this going would have been good for the forum by not cluttering up the other forums with useless chat between the 7 or so guys that are interested and are in the area.

    What are you yapping about? Really? do you not have anything better to do with your free time? If you are "following' the rules, why do you find it so important to leave a little something extra?
    Ordinarlly i would just ignore an IGGIT and go on, but for what ever reason, you whom really are the sole reason to have most of this going on seem to enjoy this mismosh of attention.
    As pointed out "LONG AGO" im aware of my mistake. And since this seems to center around a few guys from AZ. i cant figure why you seem to have your face in it so much.

    It's nothing more than people who dont have enough attention from mommy and daddy, they feel they need to crawl down someone's back to feel important.and im sure in the grand picture, stefan really does not have a problem with whats going on. you just have to ignore the IGIT'S

    Wow....talking about getting their panties in a bunch. Seriously....lets not resort to name calling (iggit or igit). That would be against the rules. :D

    Like I said...it wasn't me who reported your thread to the mods. But somebody did and the mods took appropriate action, so "my face" is here defending the mods.

    Or just use the thread where it is for B'sing with each other. just keep the tech specific and for sale ads out. Thats all the local thread was meant for anyways, local chat directed at a small group.

    Lets all take a step away and take a breather. :Handshake

    The local maverick chit chat thread is fine, just as long as the tech and classifieds are in their respective forums.
