We have just been told that NAM, owned by IB, has stopped blocking Motoring Alliance. This is very good news. You may have seen post from r52coop now named Whine not Walnuts (WnW) he is a administrator for NAM. He approached us at MOTD about our forums relationship. He wanted to improve our relationship to help the greater mini community. Of course Sully and I agreed. @Whine not Walnuts, @Sully, @vetsvette, @Goldsmithy, and I have spent a lot of time talking about how this can be accomplished. Words are cheep, action speaks: WnW Un-banned Dave.0 and ModFather/Dicks garage. Then he approach IB and told them he thought the ban on MA was silly. They agreed and have stopped deleting links back here to MA. MA is going through a lot of changes. Sully is working hard on the new platform and making our forum a better place to come talk about Minis. On the NAM side WnW (Administrator) and vetsvette (yes the same vetsvette & Moderator on NAM) are doing the same. WnW started a thread over there called MINI Forum Wars. Go check it out. https://www.northamericanmotoring.com/forums/general-mini-talk/327488-mini-forum-wars.html I want to ask that no matter how you feel about the whole MA vs NAM thing you give this a chance. NAM leadership has changed, you should be able to see that by their actions. Our leadership has changed you should see that by Sully's actions. This work is being done for us the members. I was here and at NAM during the split so I remember what it was like, but it is time to let the past sleep in the past. A lot of hard work has been done to right the past, please give it a chance. Like us they have great people over there too. I hope that with this change everyone feels comfortable participating on both forums. If you have been lurking, jump in the water is fine.
