Right now I’m not feelin good about this forum. Is it the lack of participants? Is it the post COVID thing?is it the new and improved format with annoying ads? Could it be we lost some editing features to our own posts. Are we just tired? Maybe some feedback would help? Is it censorship? Is it life in general taking priority?I don’t know anymore. I don’t feel part of this place Anymore. Most of all is it me?

I don't think it's most of the things you listed, as I see numerous other car forums owned by the same company, and having exactly the same format, etc., but are still very active. Most had the same complaints about the format change when they were also converted under the new ownership.
I do think there's a lack of new blood here, and a lack of follow through by many new members who join, start a project here, and never add anything new to their project again, or never post again. But not sure what can be done? The lack of current updates, or new projects is the same reason many don't stay active. So tough to grow the forum if we can't get active members.
We have some great members, but those who are most active can't post enough new posts to keep this forum alive and thriving. It takes more members actively posting to get others interested too. And need to get the word out, and somehow entice more people to share their love of gassers here.

Mario, don't feel like the Lone Ranger in your WTF about this site. Just remember the lack of participation you encountered when putting the calendars together. I think the first time I posted something along these lines was a couple years ago. Even then there seemed to be only about 4-6 members who kept it alive. When I got the decals made I really thought with them on cars people would ask about the site, trouble is they didn't seem to make it onto the members cars and there weren't that many sold. I would take a stack to cars shows and ask the owners if the'd put them on their car if I gave them away. The guys who had other decals on their cars said yes most of the time but the guys with no decals wouldn't even agree to putting them on their rear quarter windows, go figure.
For any new members who might be interested here's the link to the post GasserHotrods Decal/Sticker Contest

The author of his or her post should be able to edit and or delete his own post. This changed when we moved to the new format.

See the 3 dots at the top right of a post you make? Click on them, and select the "edit". Then you can edit your posts.
No delete there Vall. Used to be able to delete in the old forum.

No Lash I disagree. It’s gotta be me. Today I drove early to Kmart parking lot and it was shut down. Turned around and went to the beach much further away. Got there and it was empty. No one there except for about 6 cars. One of which was a 35 Chevy coupe. So I parked near him and we compared notes. Funny.

Never has in recorded history! We ended up at 113 degrees here, and today it's supposed to hit 113-115 too! But the high hanging over us is supposed to get pushed out by ocean air tonight, so we should be over this crazy heat! It was 84 degrees at 5:00 a.m. today! A/C never shut off all night!
