Guys,

I used to love OSNN. What has happened? Few updates, few forum posts. It's like an e-morgue.

Several months ago I offered a lot of my time and ideas to revamp/reinvigorate OSNN and no-one took me up on my offer. It was dying then and now it's almost dead. We should do something before it's too late. I don't have as much time on my hands now as I did when I made the offer but I'll still help how I can.

I think it will be a real shame if this site disappears. :cry:

Re: The demise of OSNN

I can only speak for myself. I have been without a job because of a layoff since sept 08

been really busy looking for jobs. living in Michigan is pretty bad when it comes to the automotive business. its been tough for me. I have checked in from time to time to see whats going on.

I am sure many have moved on and some are busy as well. I would hate to see the site go away. I'm sure EP has something up his sleeve. hand in there ray. :)

Yeah, not quite ready to show you what I have been working on just yet. Hopefully will have something for the elites to play with soon, but it just team at the moment.

I'm just finding it hard to wake up before 4pm and stay awake beyond midnight :D Doesn't leave me much time to come up with earth shattering ideas....

ray is the sort of man who if he was on the job with his wife would jump off half way through to check if there had been any new posts posted during his time away on said job :D

Re: The demise of OSNN

Believe it or not, my wife used to jump on the boards to see what the hell I was tearing through on some of the better discussions. Although this has been a rather painful summer, things are looking better. Of course when EP unleashes Evil Plan no.1 on the unsuspecting community, things might change.

Re: The demise of OSNN

Hope it's something exciting... There's only a very small number of threads and categories still alive compared to a year ago. It's like there's a black hole sucking up all the old threads... :p

Re: The demise of OSNN

RL has sucked most my computer time away, and it's summer.

I also think MS has killed some of forum as most people here run Windows and Vista/7 aren't even worth posting about. :)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
