Detroit Neon Owners - SYSTEM SHUT DOWN 8/22

Post by Greg » Tue Aug 17, 2010 10:40 am

It's been apparent for a while, most of the active member base is only desirous of creating conflict and arguments rather then furthering their vehicles development or creating a atmosphere of friendship.

DNO used to be a place where people shared ideas and helped one another. This is no longer the case.

The attitude of entitlement by some people has been shocking, and honestly disgusting. Personal beefs and issues have spilled into DNO many times.

I feel that I have kept the virtual doors of DNO open far longer then really it should have.

The admin team and myself have dealt with being called names, claims of abuse of power (which is laughable), and deal with people who seem to behave worse then my own two children. I'm not sure what the goals were, but congratulations on the success of pushing my patience to it's ultimate limit.

DNO's last day of operation will be August 22nd. This will give any body enough time to finish their plans, attend the dream cruise or what ever else.

The For Sale forums will be closed sometime today. Take your transactions to email.

I am truly dismayed that it has come to this.

It has been fun and I've met some friends here I still hang out with outside of this place. Sorry to hear you had to make this choice.

I am sorry to hear that the time has come to shut it down. I must agree that the board has kind of lost it's original luster.

A dark day indeed...

Too bad the actions of few have effected the masses...

On another note. Is there anyway that all of the GREAT INFORMATION that this site has form over the years can be saved?

I'd like to request a backup of the car related tables if at all possible. It'd be a shame to lose some good information here and I have more hosting space and bandwidth than I know what to do with. I could host a read-only archive if there's interest.

Funny thing is, some of the admins here are some of the admins there.
In fact, DNO has always had close ties to Wiggins, not to mention Modern Performance which OWNS neons.org...

It's been great. Thanks for the years of enjoyment and furtherment of my car. The car is currently being parted out and a new project is being completed....

As for neons.org and flodding the midwest section, enjoy yourself, as your shananigans won't be tolerated there.

This is sad news for sure.

Many really do not know how much good there has been from the DNO. Sorry that you have decided to close the site down.

Hope that the good memories will last a life time for everyone.
