    Well blaze as you I am sure have noticed we don't see much in the way of participation these days and we decided it was time to close up shop and refocus our energy on something else. What we didn't realize is that people still come to streets even if they don't post and think fondly of the site. I had people talking to me about the site last night that I have not seen post in forever. We decided that even if there are only a few we will still keep the site going.

    We are still looking for a new project something that will help get things fired up around here but Streets will remain.

    Thank you roger I may not post much but I get on here a lot just to "lurk" I am glad wvstreets is back. Screw the haters and the negative bs the group that is on here may b small but this forum means a lot to me and others too I'm sure. On another note it was good seeing everyone last night hopefully the wife and I can make it to more events this year.

    Default We Are Back!

    We posted a thread on Reddit in the West Virginia sub Reddit. I was shocked to get negative feedback I assured the user that the forum is no longer like that.

    But there are people out there to still believe it's the same way as it was years ago. I suppose we just have to be more diligent in getting the word out that it's a good place to be.

    When the site was started I posted up about a small car show that was going on at a Sams lot, while sitting next to my car 4 guys walk up and asked if I was daveb91 from the forums...these guys came from wheeling area just to bs and meet me and then they went home...I thought that was the coolest thing. Since then I have went from Pittsburgh to Dayton doing the same thing but can never get locals to travel with me.

    It's like that all over you got select few that are willing to do whatever. They tend to click up and stay amongst themselves after attempting to involve people and getting no response.

    Me too 73Dart, I was checking if we had anymore new post at around 10:30 then the next time I looked it was closed. I thought maybe it was down for updates but they never put THE END at the top of the screen and the closed sign was just a big kick in the pants. So I asked Roger what was going on.

    I don't post on other peoples post just to post something. If I have the knowledge to answer something I do. I love to be able to get on here ask a question and usually get answers within a day. I know not everyone is on here all day and either am I. I've never had a problem that hasn't been answered. It might not be the greatest help but someone did answer.

    I'd love to be able to come to more get togethers and meets, it's just hard for me to drop everything and drive oneway for an hour or more.

    I didn't post a lot on the old forum either....being the uneducated amongst the educated tends to do that to me. I'd rather be thought a fool than open my mouth and prove it.

    I don't know a great deal about cars, racing, building engines and doing mechanics so I tend to lurk a great deal but I have learned tons just by reading.

    Being new here again and not necessarily a "car" guy curbs my involvement at the moment. I don't know what all happened way back when (don't care to know either) but it is nice to know where I can stop by if I need some friendly LOCAL advice, knowledge and assistance if needed.

    I was a little upset honestly, the site I consider home was turned off like a light switch with no notice given. I know it's been a little slow but didn't expect that to happen.

    Sorry Kenny.. Rest assured it won't happen again. We were really overwhelmed with the response we had no clue the connection many people had to the forum.
