RF has always been my favorite, heck im still sporting the original RF sticker that Leo had made I think.

btw I wish people would have realized how much I actually tried to do for this place. Paying for shirts stickers etc and just forking out the extra cash and time to make sure people got what they wanted. wish i could have bought the site too but Christian thought this was best, cant blame him.

not that i am looking for any props just sad to see it in its state after all that work. hope it comes around.
thats because you were the only one that actually cared about the members and tried to help them out.
everyone else just wanted a fancy little blue or red title under their measly username or money from ads and paid subscriptions.

Zach you were one of the most valuable members the site has ever had, Rick shot himself in the foot when he forced you out. I think I speak for most of us when I say I also wish you would've bought this place. I can only imagine how different things would be. See you around.

Ryan I dont know about that, the members made it. I just tried to let them run and police it. A true administrator or mod shouldnt have to do much at all. good members keep it going.

that said you always have a few crazies around. I think I might still be on Ds hate list and Im sure a few others. haha good times.

I've only been around for 4 years but I hope things can get back to the way it was when I started. I'm going to keep contributing to the site to make it better.

He actually was. I enjoyed him. One morning when I got online he was going off about something and called another member racial slurs and a few other obscenities and I had to ban him. I had warned him before that I wasnt going to tolerate that type of member bashing if thats what you want to call it and that was the straw that broke the camels back. I banned him for a week and he couldnt wrap his head around why. Continued to trash me every which way and I permanently let him go. Tons of threats etc, Im not really sure why he got so upset over it, he knew what he did. Oh well. I truly hoped the best for him and hope he is still doing well enjoying life. The guy never had it easy.

A couple questions since we are bein open about things.

1. If my comment about being "stickerman" was to come to true would I be expected to pay outta pocket for them or would IB reimburse me?
2. Are the mods getting any sort of kickback for being mods or is it all volunteer? I know with Rick it was, at least that's what I remember talking to KLC about once.
3. Are t-shirts coming back? Someone mentioned them on the last page and I still have my 01 grill/ enthusiast one in brown. It's getting thin and I'd love a replacement with that same style.

Site staff is volunteer.

I can only assume if you took care of the stickers you would have to eat the bill. We can check with Nolan for you though just to be sure.

You can always have members buy the stickers from you. I guess some probably already are waiting on theirs from site subscriptions. I had several extras but I am not sure what I did with them when I moved.

The font I have as the originals is Ruach-LET

I have a shop that does mine for me all the time. I get a little happy with the pressure washer lol

For shirts, I'd say take payment first so you're not sitting on unpaid stock of shirts or something. We all know zach wouldn't take the money and run haha
