    FarseBook the bane of forums everywhere. Since I don't use it I lose track with many things I have interest in.

    Oh well says the old fart.

    Agreed - the thing I've always loved about forums is the ability to share information, help out the community and see what others are doing. Not being able to reference other forums puts a divide in the community. Personally, I'm excited to see this change and while getting to know @Whine not Walnuts. As stated, he is a good dude and made this happen (Thanks again). Also want to thank @Goldsmithy he is the one who really initiated this with WnW at MOTD. @vetsvette @MCS02 and I were all along for the ride.. and support.

    Great stuff when we can put the past behind us and bring two great communities together.

    Yes, I have even been posting on the NAM in the detailing threads. Whine not Walnuts (WnW) is a good guy and a class act. We have been talking over the last week or so and he is NOT one of the BS Admin’s NAM used to have running the show. I am not 100% sure but I am willing to bet all the older Admins on NAM are gone.

    This seems like a great idea so let’s be blunt about this, let’s not fuck it up for everyone.

    I continued to post occasionally on NAM, but only in the classic Mini section, as even tho I still have an R55 I found the discussions there pretty irrelevant to me and my cars. Besides M/A, my regular home for Mini talk is Restoration Mini, the guys there are ALL about cars and having fun, no animosity there at all.

    I hope and think we have gone a long way to ending animosity here and there. Both sides are doing all we can. If anyone see a way we can improve please say so, we really want this to work for everyone. I think Dave said it best for all of us, Lets not ........well you know:D

    This is great - can't say how much we appreciate the help you have provided. Love it.

    Members - as @Dave.0 said, lets not mess this up. Good to see the groups back together. Each will have a different culture.. but the information across both sites can now be shared. :Thumbsup:

    same boat , and yes MU is still a thing , a lot less traffic than before FB but still a few diehards over there ; 4 or 5 of us regularly show up at MOTD (hell Chase put his classic on the dyno and pulled 45hp tis year!).............guess I'll venture back to NAM and check it out again......

    This is good stuff. Glad we can all get together and patch things up. Also good to see Vetsvette on yet another forum I frequent (Motoring|Underground).
    Lots to learn and interesting things to read in all the different forums.

    It's great, I've been riding a min. of five days a week. We have an active Indian riders group sponsored by the local Indian dealer, some great group rides.

    For any MA members that had their posting abilities impacted (nice way of say banned) let me know and I should be able to fix that for you. If anything do it so that you can post in the thread over there so that it remains active thereby getting more views that should generate more action over here.

    And remember you can have the MA link in your signature as well. A nice way to say motor on to some of your past "best" friends over there.

    Let me see what the IT guys can do. With three accounts, there are a whole lot of IPs involved. I will have them work on that we think is the work IP.
