I miss my 2O4F buddies...

Try not to read any more into this beyond what I intend it to be which is a plea for 2O4F to return to 2O2P in some semblance that 2O2P isn’t forgotten about.

Sure there will be some whining involved it’s me Parcells and most people know I’m probably only writing because of my reluctance to join facebook.  It may come to that but no harm in trying to plead against your good nature before succumbing to the beast.

From what I understand most(?) 2O4F regulars joined a 2O4F facebook group and no longer use the 2O2P forums to manage or even advertise regularly scheduled events. That saddens me. 2O2P was the first and pretty much only race forum I’ve ever joined. That was 6-7 years ago and other than a recent almost 2 year hiatus when the entire group dispersed because of the new consoles this place has opened up a pretty darn fun bunch of guys to race and bullshit with over the years. It’s sad to see that ending.

On a less personal note it also sucks for the new members that come to 2O2P to join this long standing 2O4F group but all they find is what would appear, based on post frequency, one unpopular Thursday evening series which is far from reality.

What I meant by some semblance is for race series organizers to at least copy and paste one thread advertising your series here on 2O2P. It would be nice to allow sign ups on these forums too but at least knowing an event is occurring allows people to pursue that event if they’re interested.

Let’s not allow history to forget 2O2F’s roots with 2O2P.      

Thanks for reading.

I'll keep checking here.  I'm not much of a FB person.  I do it just to keep touch with my Masters swim group.

Parcells...It would seem your comments are directed exclusively to the Admin Boys.  After being away for awhile from Forza (Here) it seems I have come back to a Ghost Town (Here). I can understand the experiment of shifting to the Facebook since most of us have exited Forza on account of a litany of piss-offs. But now that some of us have come back home the back and forth BS is sparse. Facebook does nothing for me. I joined up under the name Noah Tose (Lost Half of them in a Motorcycle Accident). Facebook is not my thing but I signed up to be better informed (I Believe) about the happenings here. It is MY ongoing experiment that may fail my Facebook Pull The Plug Test. I agree with you comment on better communication here for upcoming events as well as a return to friendly BS.

Damn  this messaging here is F**K UP!!!!

P.(arcell)S...The problem with Facebook to me is you need a cheat sheet to even know who the hell is who. There is no GamerTag names. Only given names or pseudo names like mine Noah Tose....WTFsurprise

P.(arcell)S..Here is the other problem on facebook it states that there are 239 members with 7 admins but on the sign up sheet there are about a 100 members signed up with some Facebook names not shown. How the Hell is one suppose to know who the hell is who? Prime Example...Here we have Gizziegod who I believe is or was a Admin yet on Facebook he is Jimmy Smith...Where on the sign up sheet to you see Gizzie's Facebook name???... WTFsurprise....Sumpting WONG!

Using GT's makes sense for a place like this.  There is only one "oldmodelt" etc.  just like the rest of us.  I had to send a message to somebody on FB the other day asking him if he was so and so GT from the forums here.  I still have not heard back from him.

Gizzie...First, It is good to be back with you...Second...If Facebook is Shit then why are we there? I know I don't know anything at all that goes on here and I am not here to disrespect anyone's decisions but something seems amiss...Third...Is your reaction to Facebook the reason why your Facebook Name is not on the sign up sheet (Race Number Google Spreadsheet...AKA General Info)? To me, without it,how would guys that come back after the Xbone Fiasco (Compatibility Issues) know who the hell is who?...I know who Gizzie is but Jimmy Smith seems a stranger.yeslaugh

I keep seeing references to thesite being a pain to use, but I've not seen why? I'm guessing perhaps mobile issues but I THINK Doodi's got most of that straight? I don't use phone for here so I do not know for sure...

Wait, your # is now just 5?

Old School...I have no issue with the site except for anomalies that produce 3 posts instead of the one..Nothing to do with mobile. Like Parcells I Miss the Old Gang and The BS Banter That Went On... For the life of me I don't understand why we had a good looking site years ago which was dumped for this generic looking one. Plus it was EASIER to Navigate....Now It Reminds me of a dark lighted movie that puts me to sleep. Dull...No Life...No Color!...(Personal Tastes of Course)...Just the 5 now Old School...When the Rats were Jumping Ship I Poured me a Scotch and Bourbon and Waited for the Number to Pop Up...Stll Love the 555 Best Though.

P.(arcell)S...Ready to jump in on 3G's next Series to gauge any skills that may be lingering seeings how I have a half of a foot in the grave already.yessurprise

P.(arcell)S.S...Did you notice how Gizzie avoided answering why his facebook name is omitted from the sign up sheet?laughlaughlaughlaughlaugh

Not you Wheels, I've seen others state that the site's a pain, might have been 3G's, I'm not sure. I know the mobile thing was mentioned in other threads as an issue, and that Doodi was working on it. Just random flotsam I collect while I drift about in here...

Old School...Sounds like Doodi turned Slacker...I remember waaaaaaaaay back when when he said the look of this site was temporary. Maybe he caught the Cotter Flu and picked up a GEEE-Tar!wink

I bounce back between here and Facebook, it's just not much going on here. As the 2O4F facebook group is a closed group you don't have to deal with the rest of Facebook.

The people have spoken. More accurately the people have said next to nothing which confirms my hypothesis that 2O4F's association to 2O2P is dead. That is a shame but life goes on.

Reluctantly Parcells now has a facebook account strictly so I can know what races are being held with my old pals, nothing more.

But first I was hoping someone can fill me in on how to join the 2old4forza group on facebook. I've been led to believe facebook is so much better than these forums but if navigating facebook is as difficult as trying to find a group I think I've been misled.

Old School/Parcells....Let's stay on the safe side....Send a PM to 3G's (GrimGrinningGhost) and ask him the procedure when it comes to Facebook. I believe he sends you a invite through his Facebook Name (James Thurston) or adds you to the group. I honestly forgot the procedure.

So that's who 3G's is.  I just thought someone named James Thurston had gotten my name from prison records and was spamming me about events.
