I joined just after the large crash and it was a broken forum. IDK why but I stayed :P

Learned a ton about my car, and I have been contributing and helping rebuild all the articles as well as I could.

I joined the forum in August 2007. I was in the market to get rid of my money-pit, lemon of a 1999 Grand Am GT. And a Chevy dealership had a couple Dale Jr edition Montes. I thought they looked pretty darn cool. I had also heard that GM's 3.8 litre engine was a very reliable engine. Which is exactly what I was looking for. The fact that the junior edition had a supercharger was even better.

I wanted to know if there were known issues with the 2004 Montes. Being a member on a grand am forum, I knew the place to go was a monte forum. So I google searched "monte carlo forum". This forum came up first in the list. I looked around, and found a lot of friendly helpful people. I learned from this site that I should have no major issues to worry about. So I bought the car and joined the site.

When the forum needed a new moderator, Space contacted Admin Patrick and suggested me since I was spending so much time on the forum. I gladly accepted the offer. But Admin Patrick, being the lead admin for many forums (over 50+) couldn't spend as much time on MCF as he liked. When the new MCF came online, Patrick asked me to be assistant admin. A site-specific admin. All of Internet Brands forums have site-specific admins. I'm the site-specific admin on MCF. So it's all Space's fault.

But I don't make all the decisions myself. I feel all the staff should be able to have a say in what happens here. I ask the rest of the moderators for their input before making decisions. I should add that none of the moderators or myself are employees of Internet Brands. We don't get paid for any of this. We're here for the same reason you are.

Since we're not IB employees, the owners don't give us access to every part of the forum. Since the server hack of 2008, parts of the forum that need access to the forum's operating system or the server's file system are strictly protected. Only Internet Brands tech department has the access needed to make certain changes to the forum. Like the forum logo, color and layout of the forum, and some features.

That's why it takes a while to get certain things done. Anything I have access to can be done quickly. But if it needs to go through the tech department, it usually takes longer. Some ideas/wants just get flat out denied. As we're all aware.
