Thumbs down What is happening to MC?!?!?!

I'm sure this is going to stir up a hornets' nest, but I have to ask, what in the living h*ll happened to Modern Camaro?!?! For years, and I've been a member since 2009 and a troll since 2008, this has been the place to come from up to date information on the new Camaro. But recently, within 6-12 months, it seems as if MC has started to lose sponsors and more importantly, long active members.

There seems to be no information on the homepage about the new DUSK LE Camaro, nor any information about the new changes for 2013. But, for the FIRST time ever, I decide to visit Camaro5 and behold, they have videos posted of the new exhaust that was adopted from the ZL1 that can be optioned on the 2013 models.

I've seen this place grow quite a bit the last 4, almost 5 years since I've been lurking, but I believe it's time to move on. It's sad when the only thing you can find on the homepage is the "Member of the Month". H*ll, how many original MOTM's are still active on here?!?!?

I'll check in from time to time, but until things change, useful information is actually being put out, and/or updates on the Camaro, this is my farewell.

Noooooo Bucky...not you too!!! I'm going to be soooo lonely here. I'm glad somebody else finally said something about this and it didn't have to be me for a change. I think it so sad to see what's become of my favorite place on the internet.

The condition of the site bothers me enough that I contacted the administrator months ago and Helena said that she would fix the sponsor area and do some other stuff but it's been six months and she hasn't done a thing. If I knew who her boss was...I would be contacting him/her because I'm pretty sure Autoguide didn't buy this site just so a lack of attention could run it into the ground.

And I'm frickin' sick of seeing Member of the Months getting nominated that don't contribute to the site and a couple I've never even heard of until they are nominated...and then they win? I practically live here...lol...and if I don't know who you are...YOU AREN'T MUCH OF A CONTRIBUTOR...period! And then there's the overwhelming amount of none users (names I've never, ever seen before) that come out of nowhere to vote for these nominees...WHAT A BUNCH OF CRAP!

The homepage used to look so nice and be a great place with current news and information to pique new users interest. But now its just a list of MOTM that barely use the site and no new owner cares about that crap.

MC will always be my home but with no one to talk to and no questions to answer...there's often no reason for me to even sign in anymore.

It must be my fault. I joined way back when, and just recently bought my Camaro, and became more active here, and now it's falling to pieces. I'll be away for a day, and come back on, and there's nothing but crickets chirping now.

And I totally agree with the MOTM stuff happening. People voting for others when they have less than 10 posts on the site is the same as buying an election with your rich friends. I personally wouldn't want to win that way. I like reading the bios on members when they win, but I'd rather read about active members who post here a lot and are helpful.

I really like the structure of this place, and the people who post here. The attitude and layout is much better than the "other" site IMO, but there's no activity here any more. What's up wit dat?

Hillary, I completely agree with you. For starters, I don't mind calling something black or white, if in fact it's black or white. For years I've heard and read how people hated Camaro5, but in all honesty, just trolling around there today, I learned more about the 2013 model than I've learned on Modern Camaro the past 6 months!! And you're right, it's sad because MC used to be the first and only choice for a lot of people.... There is a reason that certain members don't post anymore and it's the same exact reason why I won't be around as much.

As for the MOTM, even though I don't own a 5th Gen, I remember when it was an honor. Now it seems that anybody can and will get nominated. Once again, we agree, because it's nothing more than a bunch of crap. Even though my post count is low, I'm always logged in and always reading, trying to gain knowledge. But, it's hard to gain knowledge when all we have on the home page is MOTM.

CUONCRS- I wouldn’t say it's your fault, as right around 2011, major changes started happening. This site has just been the titanic, slowly sinking every since Tim sold it. For the majority, I like the people here, but it'd be nice if there was information being disseminated and not just a bunch of people asking questions. We can post news about what all the other manufactures are doing, but we can't post the new changes for 2013, or the new editions that are coming out.....? WTF??

Hotrod, it is what it is. Unfortunately, I don't see this site ever going back to the way it was. It's sad when I can learn more from Camaro5 than I can from MC. I even checked out Camaro5150 that CamaroScotty got up and running...... Funny thing, a LOT of the screen names look familiar.

Being summertime I try to spend as much time outdoors, so forum time suffers.

Of all the forums car/bike related this one seems to be a ghost town. I'll check in prolly once or twice a day and there seems to be little activity. Sponsors seem to post the most and auto news which most of the time is not Camaro related. Idk maybe it needs a kick in the ass lol
