It appears to be some lost souls from our Lounge seeking something that I'm not sure of. First there was the Camp Stone, then Devil's Lounge. Camp Stone failed. It was replaced with the StoneLounge. http://thestoneagelounge.com/forums/index.php

Splintering the groups into smaller groups like this will lead to failure IMHO.
Sure would be nice for us all to get back together again.:(

The reality of the situation is that will probably never happen. Sad but true. The first one, well you know what the problem was there. The Devils Lounge was started after the other was closed. The problem is that many members thought it would follow suit of the first one. I know, I personally wanted no part of that it was a difficult situation. The Stoneage Lounge was started with the help of Sal and is just there to help remove some of the continuous fluff from here. Not that the lounge isn't great and all but sometimes we have to remember this site is here for Cadillac assistance and info first and foremost and BS talk secondary. So it just takes some of the continuous fluff conversation out of here. I think the idea is great and can probably work out well. I am a member of here and at The Stoneage Lounge and enjoy both. Though this site comes first over all others it is nice to have another place to just BS about complete nonsense. So, I personally think that Stoney has his stuff together this time, and will have a very successful site.

I AGREE 100% ~ it is exactly what happened on another site that I USED to go to !
I totally missed Camp Stone AND Devil's lounge! Never heard of them. This one I did, went there, and... oh well.

I think it's a good effort Stoney and I applaud your intentions.
It's tough (impossible really) to keep everyone happy. I recall before the "split" quite a few complaints about non-car/Caddilac material and antics here in the Lounge. Now when an alternative is provided there are rumblings against it (nothing personal to you Robert or Sandy).

The first attempt obviously didn't work out. I saw how it was going and kept a distance because it wasn't my style. I know nothing of 'Devil's Lounge'.
I am very glad to see that Stoney has worked this through with Sal and has his assistance in the venture. That's the way to do it IMO. It may not work out as planned or it may catch on and be a fun place to establish internet friendships.

This site (CF) is Blue Chip all the way and I enjoy the information, material and interaction. It's an excellent place to learn about our cars and each other but it is (wisely) limited in the topics of conversation. There are times when folks might like to share more aspects of themselves, different ideas on current events, sports, politics, religion, etc. that are not appropriate here.

If a spin-off Lounge can accomplish that while maintaining harmony with this site I say; "More power to it!"

Hmmm. I wasn't aware that we had a "splinter group" anyway...Oh well:rolleyes:
If they don't want to hang out here anymore, fine with me...Less BS and more decent topics...BTW, whatever happened to a certain Canuck that filled this place up with Smut pictures all the time?

j/k - I don't care!:lildevil: I hope he never comes back either:annoyed:

Too bad it had to happen this way.
It was done out of good intentions.
The current incarnation makes the most sense IMHO, as it allows for the spin-off/unloading of some materials that may not be appropriate for CF and Sals vision of this place. I'm over there and over here, its shaping up to be a very nice place. Fine if you want to hate on it, but no need to bash it. Stoney et al are providing a great service. Thanks Stoney, Sal, Devillish and others for providing us with yet another free option!

I believe general discussion brings people together.
Technical sections are the main attraction that bring people back, but its hardly a community without a little nonsensical babble.
And you can't forget those witty quips Jesda. :D

However, I still tried to register at the new one. The activation e-mail still hasn't come. :(
I was notified in less than one minute. You had to reply back for it to activate. I would say your attempt failed and maybe try it over?

I'm on Devil's Lounge and Stoneage Lounge and also here. I mainly used this place for tech help if I needed it and if a topic in the lounge sparked my interest and I had something to say, I'd say it. I'm not partial to any specific one. It all boils down to one thing.

MESSAGE BOARDS ARE FUN.
