I don't think I have ever been on SS but for me I stopped posting on here as much about a year ago. Very difficult to put my finger on why other than it had very little appeal. I had been a member for a number of years and always tried to help with technical queries as well as using my project thread give others ideas and take feedback from those who were interested.
Threads like the one below, as an example, do not do the site or club many favours, I read it and thought oh dear! Maybe I am just getting old but it really didn't seem appropriate.
I also disagree with the idea of not being able to sell items unless a member, I understand the reasoning and the logic. But for me personally it was the main reason to switching off to SIDC. If I have things to sell as I upgrade or mod the RA I use 22b and scoobynet. Yes you have to be a member on scoobynet as well but the exposure and potential to buy and sell is infinitely better than on here. In the past I had sold many pretty decent parts to local members and have given away many items as well but hey thems the rules as they say.
For me the only thing that interests me now is the track days that Baz started and also the excellent work that John S does with the knockhill track days, they provide an excellent opportunity for people to get out and push their cars in an environment where the dangers to the cars and drivers are minimised. I havnt been able to use them for the last couple of years as the rebuild of he RA has gone a bit wrong but I will be using them next year as they provide excellent testing. But its not enough to make me rejoin.
A service and the discount at Ian Grieves may tho lol.
