“and I couldn't cross the street without getting deleted.“ Possibly you didn’t say why you wanted to cross the street, 2oldman?

Let it go, Rock. You tried and it was an honor to serve. And sometime I did get three hots and a cot.

Even if everyone agrees it’s a great gesture, it’s not about RV-ing. ATC seems like the right place. I also wonder why they are not listed in new/active/etc.

Rockhillmanor, I’d suggest contacting the moderator and asking him to find out why Around the Campfire posts aren’t worthy of the Newest/Active categories.


Prior to the third quarter of 2002, Around the Campfire did not exist. "Off RVing" topics took place in General RVing Issues.

In those days, the forum was far less moderated and General RVing Issues had become a "wild west," with many of the participants having no interest in RVing; they were on the forum solely to take part in hot topics; many were trolls.

Forum administrators made the decision to create Around the Campfire. To make it less accessible to the non-RVing public, they decided to not have threads started in Around the Campfire appear on the Newest, Active, and Popular pages.

Originally Around the Campfire was lightly moderated. Gradually, the screws were tightened.

You may find it investing to start at the end of this search results Early Posts in Around the Campfire Start at the last page and come forward and you will see how the content changed. Note: To do the search, I searched for my posts, which were, usually, a minor part of the threads.

If there ever was a need to "hide" Around the Campfire, it no longer exists.

I never knew that! That would explain why I never see ATC posts! Because I usually just hit Active and then Newest when I'm perusing OpenRoads.

I still think places and events to visit are very much a part of rving.

Services for veterans in memorial of our histories are events for rving.

Moderators, please remember that.
