I remember when...

  1. even the launch of superbars seems ages ago to me already, which had then more traffic these weeks than supercars has now
     
  2. I remember back in 2006 when I started the war with the dodge neon forums and a bunch of them joined the site just to insult us.... and they actually thought that all of us owned supercars

    I think it was PandaBeat who said he paid 2 of his gardeners to drive their POS neons into each other for his own amusement and that really really pissed off the dodge neon owners at that point
     
  3. Really? When was this and where was I?
     
  4. young kids use the internet differently to the way we did back in the early to mid part of the last decade. ain't no 15 year old looking up cars is going to come to a site like supercars.net (which is just a database) and then participate in the 'groovy' message board.

    i'm not saying all message boards are redundant but ones centred around broad youth orientated activities sure are because they don't attract new users, those new users will use fb, apps and when it comes to something like just a car site they'll use Jalopnik instead.
     
  5. I like car blogs, but I still dislike jalopnik (style, lack of/wrong research, etc.) as much as 9gag, just to mention something else I can't make myself like (all your memes months late and then only the ones that aren't particularly funny/clever). And then jalopnik liked a picture on my instagram and I was like wtf.

    But yeah, I agree with the point you make which is all about share-to-wall nowadays. I guess the car forums that are still moderately alright are those of specific car owner clubs. Supercars is just that bar that doesn't look particularly nice in a shitty neighborhood and sometimes we run into each other.
     
  6. been years ago. dunno where you were
     
  7. This is the only forum I frequent.

    I have been banned from all the other ones.
     
  8. I feel that as the internet matures forums will be useful again. People are always looking for niche communities to be a part of
     
  9. Haha missed that one :/ I remember the Panda's Pirates thing
     
  10. I miss panda. he should come back.
     
  11. 9 years, 7 months, and 3 weeks ago I joined this site because slblack was posting about the SSC Aero in the American Cars forum. Man. SCN has seen me through some real changes.
     
  12. I don't remember when I joined. Probably June 2001 or 2002.
     
  13. Yeah my profile says I joined in late 2001, but I remember participating in photoshop contests as 'Enjoi' when I was in middle school.

    I'm surprised we haven't migrated to Reddit or Voat or something by now.
     
  14. I remember making an scnet subreddit a while back. no clue what happened to it
     
  15. nobody outside america uses reddit
     
  16. sure they do
     
  17.  
  18. I miss the olden days sometimes. I became a member 11 years ago and I just cannot believe it has been that long ago. But there certainly has been a decline in activity. Luckily there has been a decline in my fat as well. Lost like 8kg since winter. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  19. Yeah, the older days was more active, joined like 14 years ago and I was the oldest member age wise, still am today. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>
     
  20. I think my first visits to the site were during some CAD class in high school. I'd use sc.net for its pictures of the Vector M12 and then open it up on Photoshop and add so many mother#$%#in lense flares on that b1tch
     
  21. Did I get banned? All my posts got deleted...

    Anyways, dead forum.
     
  22. The site crashed for a while, and it looks like admin was only able to load the most recent backup from a couple of days prior to the crash so some posts/threads are gone.

    standard SCN reliability
     
  23. I thought mpg was older than you..?

    I guess he doesn't post any more...
     
  24. If I remember, I'm older just by a couple of months.
     
  25. Does this site even make money anymore?

    Why would anyone visit? It's so bad.
