Wade44...you've done it now! Your new member account has been automated to the RED FLAG file where the vintage software may delete your posts at random, for no apparent reason.

The mods are kind of like a cop. A cop will give you a ticket for speeding. You were speeding because you were in a hurry. Now you've been stopped/held up, so to make up time, you need to drive faster, another ticket...you see the pattern here, but the cops just don't get it!!

I know some of my posts get deleted, for no reason, other than me just trying to adjust/help another member, that may disagree with me.

I see other related forums and social media apps flourishing while this one fading away into the sunset.

It appears rv.net has become another OCC (Old Codger's Club). The next generation that do happen to wander in the door are quickly scooted out by the grumpy old man or the 'how stupid can you be' mentality here. They find a more appealing, knowledgeable crowd elsewhere. It has nothing to do with the software or mod's actions.

That’s exactly what’s happening. There are thousands of us who pull small trailers with EV SUV’s. We interact thru a few Facebook pages. Discuss various aspects of RVing and towing etc. Some have come to this board or others and lurked a bit and then go back to Facebook and mention toxicity of the various RV boards. It’s a shame. Many are new to RVing and want to learn. And the archives here are great. Lots of problem solving knowledge.

Like I say. I think there may still be a turnover on these boards. One board has now added an electrical vehicle section. Things are looking up. [emoticon].

Either way. I’ll keep my feet in here for awhile yet.

Could it possibly be that the software used is vintage 1852, or maybe folks do not appreciate posts being deleted with no explanation that in no way violate a posted forum rules regarding same? Ive only been on this board a short while but have already noticed a few mods where the job may have went to their head a bit. Thats what a little power does to folks LOL.


I have the opposite opinion. I've been here since 2005 and IMHO, this forum is under moderated. During the pandemic, when new RV ownership is at an all-time high, the Beginning RVing section has declined dramatically. This is mainly due to how new members are being treated.
It's clear that they are going to other much more friendly and helpful alternatives.
Of course, this is just my opinion.

That would depend on what forum you're comparing it to I guess. It's under moderated when compared to any of the boards operated commercially by a company named Social Knowledge, which operates a whole gaggle of forums with subjects from RV's, to the band U2, to Royalty. All of their boards are moderated by volunteers, most of whom I believe are Nazis taking into account the ones I once belonged to and left due to the iron boot moderation. Those mods work for free while the owners of Social Knowledge cash checks.

I see this a lot and it gets old. The name-calling is the worst. This forum is guilty as well.
