is it just me or are there a lot of ppl joining the site, asking one question about their car that has a problem. getting some advice to fix it. and then they disappear from the site never to return again. im not gonna help someone with less than at least 50 posts. i dont like helping ppl and them running off after you help them. maybe its just me but it dont sound right...

Re: is it just me???

I am kind of new too the site myself but seem to come on here as much as I can now.
I said the same thing as you I see a ton of people that only have 2 or 3 post and then they are gone. I think its like that with most sites these days.
What I cant stand is when people list stuf for sale or trade then never answer you back they are usually the ones that register just to sell something then they are gone.

i guess i got spoiled working at the dealer. we dont give out free help. we make no money if we give out free info. i just expect someone who wants a question answered to stick around and have fun on the site. they are using this site like it is www.fixya.com

Some people can't spend the time others do on here and are just looking for a quick tip or quick help with a problem that they are having. I wouldn't take it personally.

i understand, i was just thinking if you had the time to create an account and post a question you have enough time to visit the site every-now and then. wasn't meaning to take it personal im just having similar things happen outside the forum with friends i havent heard from in a while calling to figure something out then never calling again till they have another problem. annoys me

This is a lot of it, most members never post on large forums, they just read..

Isn't part of the whole Mustang comradery is to rely on our fellow brothers & sisters to help out when possible. If I have a unique problem with my car, one of my first stops is on an "enthusiasts" website for help & information.

I think the whole comment about working for a dealership and not giving free advice was completely asinine. If your head is seriously shoved that far up your *** to make a ******bag comment like that; well then I am appalled to have stumbled across a site like this. This is an open forum, people will be here to seek out advice regardless if they post 1 time or multiple times. This isn't a closed frat party whereby people have to be hand selected to join for specific help and insights.

How does the saying go; check your ego at the door?

Going to go ahead and close the thread as I don't want this turning into a pissing match. Please take problems with members to private means.
