    I use it for Chrome. Works perfect.

      Ditto.

       

      Clean slate? So did they shitcan the old mods/admins who basically "thumbed their collective noses" at the community for so long? It was only until after a mass exodus occurred that they finally did something and even then took their sweet time? Sorry...any community where the mod/admin staff refuses to reply to requests/concerns by the members in an expedient manner is not a community I want to be part of. I ran a site for years and I actively engaged the members with questions as to how I could improve the site all the time.

        Per Knabe S*S and himself will be the primary form of moderation, so no. I was part of the BETA test group for the site and real moderation was just another of the suggestions that seemingly went ignored.

          I like it. As far as ads I use addblock over there and here. So there is no adds.

           

          I just pay for a membership to Running Ahead.  It's only $20 bucks a year which is a bargain for the use of the training log alone, much less everything else.  It helps keep this site up and running and as a thank  you, Eric turns off the ads for paid members.

            Same here. I might add that Eric is very responsive and seems to be genuinely interested in maintaining a good site. Having been a site admin/founder, I give much respect to folks like him. Kudos to Eric and I'm glad I found this place.

              I paid for the membership too.

              DON'T TREAD ON ME

                so all the old threads are orphaned? Is that what they did? Because you can still find the old threads and posts through google.

                  I still have a link to the old L&O forum. It still works. The posts are still around. Is the link on the main page fixed? It took me to the old forum.

                    didn't read the threads above maybe someone else explained this?

                      The old forums are still around. You can reply to threads but not start a new one is the way I understand it.  This will give people a chance to finish off conversations and save off any last minute info before they shut it down for good on the 22nd.

                        They ignored suggestions?  I would never have guessed that...

                          I don't think there is an AdBlock add-on for IE10. You don't really need it. Just surf any site where you don't want to see ads inPrivate Browsing mode (aka: porn mode). It blocks the ads.

                           

                          I normally don't use IE but was having temporary issues with Flash clogging up Firefox.

                              I left RWOL and won't ever go back.  I waited months for the 'improvements' but now I have left and will never go back.

                               

                              Ands WHY ever go back?!   RA kicks RWOL's A$$!  (And the graphs + charting of stats here are SUPERB).

                               

                              I too sent Eric $20.00, 10.00 for the year membership and another10 'just because this site rocks'.  I would never pay to be an RWOL member.

                                I need a place which is alive with constant new threads and has enough participants to keep things moving. A place which can give enough answers/replies to all. I also want the right mix of topics, which to me is somewhere around 75% running and 25% other. I also want a forum which functions well. I waste enough time already as it is, I don't want to waste more because a forum platform isn't working as it should. And finally, I would prefer to stay with the people with whom I have formed bonds. The rest doesn't matter to me. I don't care who the mods are.
