I was planning on trying to do it again this summer if you girls are interested in making it official.

Here's the thread from the last one.
Yes do your lake house meet again this year. I missed it in 2010 because of overlapping with other vacations. That should not be an issue this year.

Don't get you're hopes up. I've PM'd Brain and Rick probably 5 times each over the last 3 years trying to get stickers.

Thanks for the help with that, btw.

I just need to set a date for it, I guess. Maybe the new ownership will spring for event t-shirts if we get enough people interested in getting together. Or decals. Or a pack of wieners.

lol.

I do not like the way IB does business. For starters, they'll usually double the ad rates. That makes it impossible for a small advertiser like 949 Racing and SuperMiata to support as many forums as we do. IB comes in, I let my sponsorship lapse and go elsewhere. There will be larger advertisers taking up the slack. Advertisers that are in no way involved in the community but are able to pay the price and only too happy to see their scrappy little competitors (me) go away.

IB is a huge and highly profitable company. They are also growing fast, gobbling up forums at a startling rate. Turns out there are lots of advertisers willing to pay whatever rates they ask.

You notice this board is using vBulletin 3.73? That's about a 4 year old version. IB bought the previously open source vBulletin software and promptly started charging for updates and tech support. Cruise the web and see how many forums are still on 3.84, including miata.net.

The forum members, contributors are cogs in a wheel, need see nothing and are not really affected. There is a lot more to IB than most forum users are aware of. They are not a well loved company.

So yes, my prepaid annual sponsorship will run out and both 949 Racing and SuperMiata will cease to support this board. I will no longer visit nor post on this board.

I harbor no ill will towards those who profit from the sale of this property. Business is business and everyone has to do what they feel is right for their them.

It's been fun guys. Thanks for your business and support over the years. See you elsewhere on the web and of course, on the track.

Signing out,

Emilio Cervantes
949 Racing
SuperMiata
After many conversations with a few of the folks at IB, much pressure on their part as well as a contract for fixed rates for some time into the future, I've decided to stick around. I'd rather not have to pay them but it's sorta like when ticketmaster has the only seats left for a show you want to see. You pay the fee and enjoy the show.

Despite the annoying and pointless juvenile NSFW content allowed here, the signal to noise ratio still remains higher than on any other Miata board worldwide. More competent tuners, diagnosticians, drivers, mechanics and active racers here per capita than anywhere else. I say that with some experience as I am a member of or sponsor Miata boards around the world. Whether I like it or not, this is where 949 Racing and SuperMiata belongs.
