Once again Easierloungin (reincarnation of EasyLoungin 1.0 & 2.0) forum been closed, so its time to explore n' move to new place that is a bit more stable…

From looking around here, i could see few familiar names (@Supra, @F1EA, @MikeHoncho...), and i was wondering if more ppl from Easierloungin community moved \ can be found here as well?

Yeah that's too bad.

Well this is a nice and stable forum. A lot more members and casual/1st posters, but that's a good thing i think.

So, make yourselves at home? maybe a common introductory Thread "EL ex-pats" or something :giggle:

I registered just to get in touch for the if/when EL can get another forum going. I consulted my magic 8 ball and it said next iteration will last at least 3 months... maybe without a narcissistic czar with an easily bruised ego.

I'd take it on, except my buttholio chaffs at all the posting of RUSH music videos.

Seriously though, I could probably cobble something together but I'm not brilliant at WP and don't want to overstep or over promise.

Does anyone know what happened?

IMO, basically Canucker took over a forum that has a long history of barroom banter. Used his new power to over-moderate based upon his own personal preferences of how he wanted the forum to look, which was basically getting rid of the barroom banter. Pissed off long-time EL members by deleting their posts or moving them to new threads, and when they objected he banned them. Then got hurt feelings about being criticized by other members when he thought we should all shower him with praise. Locked registration so no one could join and disappeared, not logging in for months. When he finally did log in and saw that members were asking for registration to be opened up and admins added, or possibly let someone buy the site from him (before he takes his ball and goes home)... he did what I think everyone saw was coming and took his ball and went home.

Anyone can feel free to object, or give other opinions, but to me that's how it seemed to go down to me.

It's a shame.

All EL'ers can come here and get their passwords and accounts stolen by hackers. Yippie!
Is this really a thing? The password requirements when I signed up were stricter than even my mobile banking app. If someone is actually hacking accounts it's got to be a vulnerability in the platform.

As an aside, the name calling and childish shit on EL can grind on ya if you take it too seriously and get your ego involved. But if you don't it could be really entertaining at times.

Yeah there was a hack on vertical sports which is the umbrella company. All of thier forums were affected.

So if people used the same passwords for this and thier banks then it could be problems.

haha don't worry. Everyone went through the same recently. Some people complained... others didnt care. Then some simply could not manage the technology and had to create new accounts :giggle: :D

Ahh the internets.

EL deserves to live on somehow. When C3 decided to pull the plug it seemed like there were a few people willing to do what Canucker did. He just jumped on it quicker, and everyone followed because it was there, and easy. Things got weird quick, and I assumed a lot of the long time posters just thought it was lame and hit the road. There were a few posts over on the DMQ group that made it sound like Canucker banned some of them before closing registration.

I liked lurking around Easyloungin 1+2, hopefully you guys can bring your board talks here, hopefully the 10 char pw with 1cap/sym/numbers won't scare you guys away.

I've notised this "casual/1st posters" is a common thing here, but im sure there are also ppl with lots of knowledge as well.

For now we having this thread to stay connected... hopefully @c.fuzzy or someone else will manage to do something in the future...

What about an EL forum section?
i doubt we will get one here, but for now we can use this thread as a meeting point for all ex EL members.

we don't have a thread dedicated to Capita or vintage snowboards. Feel free to start one though, the variety would be great. We do have a couple of active members that are active in vintage snowboard collecting, but usually the extent of posting about it is some one-time poster asking for a value...

and welcome to all the EL members, summer's slow around here, so feel free to liven it up! :hairy:
