Title: ThenewX Rant!
Post by: Hammer (Avi) on December 12, 2012, 05:19:33 PM
Is it just me or is it that every time I go to thenewx there is some new advertising BS.  Now when I go there a pop up comes up that says, this pop up my provide you with surveys, continue to browse and leave this window open in the back round.  lesson 1- never sell out.

LOL I agree my supporting membership will run out over there and the ads will pop up.

XterraNation is a good site that hasn't sold out yet.

Agreed. I don't go on thenewx anymore unless its through an app. Until they figure out a way to poison the app with ads...

Im not a newx supporting member and I dont get any pop ups or anything when Im on there, only ad I see is at the very bottom of the page which doesnt bother at all.

Are you guys not signed in...I know if Im on there and not signed in then yes there is a crap load of crap, but when signed in no problems!

I was signed on when I got the pop up, haven't gotten it before or since though.  They did add the auto escrow button, and random Mazda adds are mixed in with posts.  It's too bad, even the guy who started the site seemed to be regretting his decision to sell it.

Hey but we all met on that website.  It happened we can't control it and lets focus on AZXC.

Yes, thenewX has changed over time.  And, yes, there are quite a few ads now, but most of them are kept at bay if you sign in.  I still surf that site, as it is a great place to get a bunch of information about mods and also repairs.

That is true. There's so much info on there.

Someone could "migrate" all that info to here, such as the how to posts?  Just an idea.

that sounds like a good idea, but i worry about legal concerns.  Especially since its a for profit site now, i wonder how they would feel about us copying all their data over to our site.

We can take all of Rook's posts.  And in the agreement with the newx it says the posts are property of the poster and not the site.

That's what I was thinking, as long as you ask the poster, all should be good.

I still spend way to much time browsing tnx. Never had a problem with ads though.

I like the idea of snagging the how toos off the site, i wonder if there is a way to do it easily or will we need to go through and copy and paste each individual post.

I think all you would need are the initial postings, unless there is advice or a better way posted up later in the thread.
