Title: Gil is Worried
Post by: IowaEagle on August 28, 2013, 11:14:44 AM
GilSX/4 is worried.  He sees little activity here and is wondering why folks don't post more.  I shared with him that our regulars are probably wanting to see the dust settle.  What do you think?

I think it needs more time to be found.

Or the members on the other sites need to be made aware that it is here. I check all 3 lately, but try to post here and on the 'Nest. I am also wondering what Ken is up to. I have not heard from him or Paula for a few weeks. I hope he is not in the hospital again....Rich

Ken is still around.  He sent Gil and I couple of messages during the past couple of days.  I think he is undergoing treatments again which do wipe you out.

I think part of the issue with the "nesters" not appearing here for the most part is they are scared of the site, just because of how it appeared out of the blue. but look at most of that crowd.  how many people do you think over there know who gil or iowaeagle is?  most have only been a member while it was under steves control, in the meantime, the veteran members are either trying to stay under steves good side, or have been banned altogether. [suspicious]I think if we could use amceaglenest as a url and name, that would already attract people just by the name. [/suspicious] I hope ken is doing all right, and hope to see him on the forums when he can be.

Ken is on right now.  I think you are right.  Perhaps when the new look and content appears we can be a bit more aggressive in our marketing.

No need to worry.

OK -- I kind of remember that.  I think my kids were older when that came out.  I am not worried.  When things settle down and the new look and format comes out, we will do well.  We just have to keep everybody healthy.

I prefer to lurk on here for the time being just in case a certain someone decides to create a fake account to spy on us, and the ban everyone that is on here.

Can't possibly happen, so don't worry.

Hi Guys.  I hadn't been on the "Nest" in a while. Didn't know about this site until I got an email from Gil. It's GREAT that you now have the "DEN" to maintain the original design of how the "Nest" should have stayed.  Even though I no longer have an AMC Eagle, I still think it is one of the best cars ever designed and made. Glad to hear Ken is still around.

Time and patience. It's summer and there's lots of competition from many activities. Winter is coming and folks will be online more :computer: :eagle:

x2.  I've been lurking quite a bit myself

@ Rollguy:  how can you be so sure?  How do you know he's not using a computer at another site?  If you're going on his IP address, he can change out his NIC card and then renew his IP address.  Or have like 3-4 pc's running at home.

It's not impossible.

If he is a member here it would have to be under a different name, which is entirely possible, but he would not have any admin or moderator (very limited number) privileges as those are being closely watched on a daily basis.

My sentiments exactly.

Did steve know about the stealth moderation account? He might be smart enough to have one even.

true, but he could still lurk, and then ban us over at the nest for 'whatever' remark we make here.  You gotta remember who we are talking about here.

He can lurk all he wants.  Only three people can grant any kind of moderation/admin privileges and those are discussed in detail before any are granted.

that sounds like a good plan. I think ken has ben on the forum as a hidden user lately, which may explain why only the admins know when he is online?

Ken had a procedure done recently.  Paula says that so far, so good.  He is also been working with the web developers more than he has been on here.  Kind of let Gil and I run the ship at the moment -- kind of scary, huh?

yeah, im sure it is, that reminds me, I have to update EOTM again

Scary, ehhhh. Not yet. Maybe if more were on here

Scary? not at all.  Back in the old days that is how it was (I E and Gil at the controls), and it was a great time to own and service an Eagle. I remember the best time I had ever spent on ANY forum was during that time. Scary, NO! Fun and filled with excitement at what it will become?- YES!

Well I for one had ( and still have) no idea what is going on anywhere. I actually found this site on accident and now I'm glad I did. Been wondering a long time what ever happened with I. E. and how he was. Don't know who Steve is or what happened with "that" whole thing or whatever you guys are talking about. I always went on and checked out the unread posts but there must have been something I missed to not realize what must have been going on.

 I think most/some people are just un aware of this site maybe? I didn't ever sign up for this site, but my login and password are here? That was a little weird. How do we tell how many actual people are signed up for this site then if there information was just drug over here?

Its a long story regarding actual ownership of the Nest content.  But, yes, the original information was "drug" over here, at least what was left after some "great deletes" at the nest..  Now that we are on wordpress and have a bit different looking format we are going to work to retrieve some old stuff and add new stuff.  Of course as this site becomes more active we will gain member input to further make it not be a nest clone.

I've been wrapped up in cleaning out my excess projects (just got rid of a '66 Travelall and '89 Comanche) and forgot this place was around.
