Actually, I've gotten more information off of this group than the nuts site. This site might not have an extensive library, but I can easily search for the information that I may need (the search here is much easier to use than the search engine on Yahoo).

ON this forum the owner participates in a POSITIVE MANNER and he always looks for ways to improve the site. When was the last time that nuts has changed? Now, you may say that you can't improve on perfection, but I really find nuts dated and difficult to use. Hey, maybe thats why it needs such an extensive library.

Whodat, Arky may be well meaning, but by inhibiting the free flow of ideas, he's also hindering creativity. The only information that goes on the nuts site is what Arky thinks is right. I do admit, Arky is very intelligent, but he is not all knowing, no one is.

Here, on the other hand, the information is free flowing. Any information that is not correct is soon weeded out (y other members. The good ideas are discussed and used. Can you say the same about nuts?

Frankly, I"m very happy with this group and I'll stay here for as long as they let me. As far as schoolbusconversionnuts is concerned I have removed myself from the group and I have no regrets.

Now Whodat, are you willing to do the same and remove yourself from this group? You don't seem to be very happy with this group and it seems that this group has nothing to offer you so put your money where your mouth is and resign from Skoolie.net, I dare you.

BTW, as you noticed whodat, even though your comments are in contrast to what this group stands for, unlike nuts group, you have not been barred by any of the moderators or the owner.

Re: What's Happened to Skoolieconversions?

ok phillbus i'll do you again. when are you going to quit whining about having to join nuts to read posts? you're too frikken STUPID to understand even after many explanations that is to stop BOTS from spamming members. maybe you don't know what a BOT is..... a BOT is short for ROBOT.... it's SOFTWARE that MINES forums for email addresses. a BOT cannot see the secret joinup number/letter sequence that you have to fill in to activate your membership ( just like on this group) but that doesn't preclude SPAMMERS who are actual people who do the same thing. THATS why arkie keeps the membership list private so that SPAMMERS can't do the same thing.... NOW DO YOU GET IT? probably not!
arkie doesn't STIFLE IDEAS we ALL critique them. theres never been an instance of anyone being STIFFLED. advised yes, critiqued yes. because we try to maintain a higher standard of skoolie design than goes here. where anything goes no matter how unsafe or harmful to the skoolie movement or how mis-leading to newbies it is.
and roasting8...... gee you quit nuts today after 4 YEARS ( and 48 postings ) as a member. why didn't you quit long ago? i'll venture why..... you joined nuts when you got you bus and now that it's done you don't need nuts anymore. welcome to the chickenshit club ( not skoolienet, the chickenshit club are people who we help build thier skoolies then stab us in the back.....THATS the chickenshit club) i read your posts here until i got bored. you never contributed a single bit of help either place. just take take take and shoot your mouth off about nothing. oh and one more thing you're wrong about.... BEN was NEVER co-owner of nuts.
see folks..... thats ALL you'll EVER GET HERE! BULLSHIT!

Re: What's Happened to Skoolieconversions?

oh and if you haven't realised it youselves ( some of you need a little help ) roasting8 is just another example of proof that that some of these guys are liying to you. he's been a posting member of both nuts and net for four years and hasn't been banned by arkie. so i guess that shoots the lie, about arkie banning people from nuts that post here, in the ass huh? personally when i realise that anyone is a lier i don't beleive ANYTHING they say EVER again. ditto for design advice. when i realise someones designs are STUPID i definitely don't regard what they say anymore.
but then i'm a pragmatist

ok whodat(oh yeah it's arky) I agree that requiring someone to register will prevent bots and spam (which one are you?) but it also artificially inflates the number of members - something you constantly brag about. Everyone knows it'll cut down on spam, like you're some genius figuring that one out. HEY ARKY DO YOU GET IT NOW, YOU HAVE SO MANY MEMBERS BECAUSE EVERYONE WHO COMES ALONG TO EVEN READ A POST MUST REGISTER AND BECOME A MEMBER FIRST. DO YOU GET IT NOW???? PROBABLY NOT. My god, I know 3 year olds that understand better than you do.

Wow am I embarrassed, you really got me good arky...er.. I mean "whodat" I really can't take much more embarrassment, please hold back.

Isn't it ironic that this very same post on nuts would have been deleted long ago? Along with anything else arky doesn't agree with.

Wow guys I'm convinced, yahoo's skoolie group is way better than skoolie.net

LOL, I noticed you didn't take my dare arky.

You said that you don't ban anyone, well, what happened to Bill (timeguy) http://www.timeguy.com/bill/01205761106? He seems to critizied your ideas and all that you did was banned him. If you don't believe me, just read his site particularly "Oh NOES! BANNINATION! 5/21/08." What was it, he got under your hair? He isn't the only one that has had problems there have been others.

Now arky, who's the one that's lying?

Now, for why I only posted 48 postings in the four years that I was in nuts. I once posted and I was censored, my post was removed by one of the moderators, one of the elitists. As you noticed, I haven't posted since.

As far as running after completing my bus (you know as well as I do, your bus is never complete); why am I still posting here?

BTW, as you have noticed, I really don't have to scream to get my point across.

Re: What's Happened to Skoolieconversions?

i didn't say that arkie never bans anyone ( please QUOTE where i said that ). what i said and what you didn't respond to was that the LIE earlier in this thread by genius phillbus that arkie bans anyone who posts here was proven as a lie by YOUR CASE. nor did you address the FACTS in the case about how long you were a member etc. you just blow smoke but that does go hand in hand with hot air ( you must be a democrat ) quite the contrary i tried to explain that he bans the Aholes, BS artists, motormouths and idiots.thats why skoolie net is a valuable asset to the skoolie movement. it gives you all a place to be. like the funny farm. i am just here to let newbies know to BEWARE. because you LIE! not EVERYONE HERE! just a handful. but that handful are the most vociferous and who make the majority of the posts here. great entertainment but before you do ANYTHING to your skoolie better run it past schoolbusconversionuts first. because only a handful of guys here know squat ( the silent minority ) about what they're doing and they are also on nuts. we don't want your tripe on nuts. just your TECHNICAL QUESTIONS or innovations. save the tripe for here.

ps. funny how you can read bananation two ways.taken at face value it implies that bill was posting some same ole googled cut and paste crapola. funny he didn't put what HE SAID that arkie was responding too so we could read it all in context huh. or maybe it was the same reason phillbus got banned.... he only had everyone else in his links except nuts while enjoying nuts hospitality.

Re: What's Happened to Skoolieconversions?

phillbus you're a gas ya know...... so i guess you mean that no one unsubscribes? just because YOU never thought of it doesn't mean others don't think either. we have between 50 and 100 different individuals post every month. we've had nearly as many people quit as we have members. last year arkie changed everyones email settings to RECEIVE EACH MESSAGE to weed out the casual members . only 80 quit. everyone else RESET to thier preferences. yahoo cleaned out ALL bouncing members. we lost NONE. but hey who's counting. you think everyone has your malfunctioning logic. you're a fool who knows not from wence they speak. just like the beginning of this thread. someone had to explain to you who they were talking about..... just like the thread that got deleted where you posted the stats from some other skoolie group saying it was nuts and quoting them to prove how nuts was going under. you're a fool. pure and SIMPLE. and i emphasize SIMPLE!
