Off limits-Off topic?

Postby nonhog [OP] » April 18th 2017, 10:43pm

I started my Astro-Safari interest on Expedition Portal. Great site not much going on for our vans short of a few really good threads.
Then I found AstroSafarivans.com and thought how cool loaded with tech and build threads but not much traffic as if everyone up and left?
Next I found Astrosafari.com (here-duh) and its moving pretty good. So I have to ask is there a history one should be aware of?
Not trying to stir any pots, just curious. If taboo please delete thread, no problem for me.

I am not aware of the bad blood between the 2 sites, but as you can see by the * that were auto edited into your post as if it were a bad word, we are mutually exclusive. There are lot of cool threads over there but you cant link to them, or even mention it by name.

I am sure something happened in the long, long ago, but I don't know what it is

I don't know exactly what went on before my time, but that other AS van site name has been blocked as long as I've been here (8 years? 9 years?). I DO remember the guy who runs that other site posted something on here that set Austin off big time. Again, fuzzy memories, I don't know or recall details. I think it goes back to the site that started it all before either of them, I'm not certain. Suffice to say there was animosity in the past, I don't know what it was about, and I really don't care to dig it up. It would serve no purpose that I can see.

I was just curious and have no interest in drama, my teenage girl has grown and left home so I am done with that. LOL Just kind of wondered were the sites stand.
That's all. If it causes someone to be uncomfortable I see no need to go further.

I don't think it's causing anyone any discomfort, no harm in asking. I do know there was hostility between the sites for a while, but it's been quiet for a good long time now. It's all good.

That site came about when the earlier version of this site crashed a few members started the other site just because this one crashed however someone on the other site said something either about this site or the owner/operators of this site. I left this site cause it was down and found the other site a few months later cause I needed info/help with something and caught some of the chatter but I do not have a clue as to what exactly was said cause I don't do politics which is kinda what was happening in my opinion. Over the years there has been some minor bickering between members of both sites I call them political wanna be's in the forum hierarchy in both forums. Seems they all want to be boss of something, hell I have hard enough time being boss of myself lol but everyone is different right? Hope this clears things up a little. Mark

You know how sometimes you walk blindly into a wall of stench in a restroom but the perp has already vacated? Well the room has just about aired out by now, but those who have been around long enough remember the stench. Unfortunately some good **** players have been flushed along the way too.
