How do you find out who gave you a warning on S.F.? I never do anything bad over there, and all off the sudden I've got a warning! I guess I told a guy that an Edge rolling chassis for $2300 probably wouldn't sell, because running sleds are going for about that much. What's wrong with that? I figure that helps the guy out if he doesn't know the market. I bet the guy that Gerbil bought his RMK from wished someone had made him aware of market values. He would have been about $600 richer now. I didn't insult the guy with the ad either. ??

Oh I have plenty my friend :D

And about the warnings, it's totally anonymous. Basically the mods can be pussies and sit back and warn you all they want. Majority of the time they never even filled in the reason as to why I was warned. Also, don't bother PM'ing Erick about it..... he'll come back with one of his usual two responses to everything:

1. "I don't keep track of what the moderators do"

or

2. "I don't have time to check on that, I'm just too busy"

So what that translates to is he is a liar OR he doesn't care that his site seems to be going to shit. How many people have been coming over here or leaving his site because of all the BS? He'll continue to fill his pockets but the quality of the site is going to continue going downhill. IMO he needs to do something about it NOW to fix it for later. Eventually it is going to be Planet of the CYI Kids and no one will want to post.

DECEMBER 6th - HOLLA!

I don't miss it one bit. Like any forum I do enjoy popping in to read the mountain/off-trail/Arctic Cat sections... but then I'd be tempted to check out stuff out and eventually piss myself off. Too many idiots and kids hang out there.

Have only ever got kicked out of one site. "Graybeard outdoors" But that don't count. all ya gotta do there is disagree with the owner. Think there were 8 of us got it on one thread LOL Have noticed a lot of sites that use light moderation seldom have the problem they have on the Hitler and Castro sites

All I can say is Erick is doing something right over there no matter if it's full of kiddies or not. He's done a pretty nice job of spending $53K on a car and rolling with 2) $6K+ sleds and he's in school. I guess if he's losing a few members he's still getting the clicks that translate into $$$ for him.

It's an Audi TT Turbo, I think.
He's had that for a while now.

He does have something good over there in that respect.
I think about 10 or so CYI members could go away and that it would be a better site for it,
but that's just my opinion and I don't make the calls in that dept.

As for SF paying for everything like the car and all?
Probably not. I'm sure it pays for it's self and that he makes a few bucks from it,
But I don't think SF is making him rich. I know what I pay a year (no, I won't give up the number) to advertise there, and even with all of the sponsors that site has, It's not THAT much.
Fact is, Advertising there is one of the better bargans in the sled business.

I think that weather you like him or not,
Credit has to be thrown his way because I think he started and is keeping SF going out of love of the sport.

It's the same reason I started GWR,
and probably (I'm about 99% sure) the same reason IBS started this site.
Love of the sport

I've heard plenty of rumors about advertising there, and unless I'm mistaken - it's in the vicinity of 300 or 600 per year for a rotating banner there, depending on the frequency etc. Either way, it's definately a bargain. I've also heard rumors that he generates somewhere around $2k/month average throughout a year - winter is better and summer is worse. Subtract operating expenses and you have a reasonable profit.
SD you are correct, I started this site solely for the love of the sport. I've explained my stance on that on many occasions. Like you mentioned, Erick is doing something right as he continues to have a larger audience year over year.

That's pretty much why most of us start something in a niche industry like this.
Definately why I'm doing it.

at 300 per year per advertiser, but at how much per year operating cost of the server? can the website cost 5 grand a year to run? his time has to be worth something? so he needs 20 advertisers yearly just to keep the site running?

ibs wants to keep ads off this site, and after going from this site to other sites loaded with advertisers i can see why. i do like some other forums not sledding that have a sponsors page or links page. if you want to find a product you click on that tab and get a list of sponsors in alphebetical or catagorized list. has worked very good for me as a consumer in the past.

I haven't read all 17 pages, I don't even remember if I posted in this thread when it started. But I'll tell you one thing I notice about Moderator staff at SF. The mods don't post in locked threads, just because they can.
