151 views and no comments , this is exactly why this board is dead . Anyone still here is afraid to comment I guess . Man what happened to all the fun that used to happen here ? Or have all the old guys been kicked off ? Is there another board I'm not aware of ? Does tunaman have his own board ? Anyone hear from Ocala Jim? As near as I can see Bone is the only guy left still posting . I realize we are getting old but come on guys !

Yep, I hear ya. I still stop by now and again to see what’s new in local racing. I don’t understand haw Facebook or whatever can really replace a dedicated racing site. Sometimes I miss some local races just because you have to constantly dig around to find all the schedules. On a positive note for anyone who hasn’t heard - The World of Outlaws Sprint Cars just announced some additional dates in Florida!! They will be at Volusia this coming Friday night and at East Bay on Saturday. I haven’t had a chance to see those bad boys in a long time, I will definitely be at East Bay this Saturday. Anyone else going?

Maybe its too many rules and unpopular changes . I sure would love to see this forum return to the way it used to be . Back to the way Jack wanted it to be .

'Splitter,

Seems to me that news is important but, ya know, it ain't the steak that sells, it's the sizzle.

In other words, a provocative title regarding a controversial issue (ie, dirt vs asphalt, mirror driving or no, what constitutes "dirty driving" etc.).

And then, MORE THAN TWO FOLKS DISCUSS AND/OR DEBATE the issue. THAT theoretically begets more "views" and more posts, and the deal grows organically.

Now, I kind of tried to help out in that dept, but wound up making most of the posts, and the counterpoints sometimes were off point...

So, I waits for something interesting to yap about.

So does anybody have any ideas or suggestions on how we can get this site back to life ? I believe if everyone puts in an effort we can get this place hopping once again . But it will take everyone involved to make it happen . And that means those in charge of this site must help and put in the effort required . By making this site welcoming to tracks wanting to post results and scheduals without restrictions .I'm sure if all are willing and everyone helps get the word out there maybe it will come back .so anyone got ideas ? Or am I wasting my time ?

Really ? That all ya got ? Thats why this site is dead .no vision or effort to improve . Posting a utube video isn't going to get anything done . Or interest anyone in helping . Entertaining the 3 of us that are here wont get it done . We need to really increase our numbers . Someone with the authority to do it needs to reach out to those we have lost and work towards positive results . Only those in charge can make a difference . It can and should be attempted . It should be done to bring Jack's place back to life .

Now on a positive note , I see Patrick Thomas is now racing on dirt at volusia . He always used to post on here .how about someone reaching out to Patrick and see if they can get him to come on here and update us on his progress and schedule etc . And then maybe others will come along to join the conversation .

Yo, splitter, there are lots of topics. Larson, recently. Hit any of 'em.

This is your crusade, where is your topic?

I will comment if at all possible.

Otherwise, many have suggested the "kum-bay-yah" approach, but folks seem to buy girl scout cookies if they are in that frame of mind.

As I previously said my topic is the powers that be in charge around this site need to do something positive to revive this site . It should not be up to me or you or any other member to do the work needed .you or me can make up 500 topics to discuss but in the end as you can plainly see it will only be the two of us discussing it since we are the only ones here .I've suggested a few topics already but nobody is interested I guess . I've been to showtime , citrus , auburndale nss , volusia ,putnum , 417 all this year seen plenty of familiar faces and racers .racing is still rocking in florida . Just not on here .I can't fix that nor can you .only those who broke it can rebuild it .just hoping somebody cares .but I have a feeling not many do .

I feel like they keep the site up, and no doubt there are some fees and maintenance and whatnot, and I am thankful they are providing the, um, forum for us to have a place to yak. I will wager no one has bought a late model with the profits.

Meanwhile, the "racing is dying" theme is across forums, from slot cars to rc to whatever.

I believe we have lived in the best of times, and it is soon going to devolve into "E" racing. Maybe "virtual" E racing.

Anyway, you are a member of one, I look forward to kicking the tire around with you sometime.

The Message Board forum of Karnac may not be what it once was, but Sunshine State Racing is doing a fantastic job with their stories and race reports on the front page. Have you seen their live race broadcasts? As smooth and professional as you can get. I was so impressed with the work of Sunshine State Racing, my company is now advertising here.
I do get the point of your thread, it would be cool if it were a little livelier on this forum. Like the newspaper, the "discussion forum" may be a thing of the past? Perhaps most folks now come to Karnac for the media content, preferring to air their praises or grievances on social media?

Counterpoint: Look at the number of views for each thread.

With few exceptions, the number of views goes up with the number of posts.

1 post = news

Many posts = maybe something interesting

This message board is old and out dated. We can no longer update it or make it as secure as it needs to be. The majority of people can no longer sign on if they didn't have a saved password as it will no longer allow people to update them. It's a dinosaur and it has seen it's day. Robert and the new gang are going to start a new one soon and this one will stay for the history on it.
