Hey guys,

As suggested by Mr. Creepy Clown, surly Bill, I have installed a plug in that will prevent new users from posting links/images/email addresses until they reach 5 posts on the site.
This limit can be altered at any time just let us know.

Let us know how this works out!

Richard.

Ha! I though that you may have been banned because of the clown avatar! People seem to be freaked out by the creepy clowns these days.

In regards to the weirdos in the video...the one with the purple hair reminds my of Paul Stanley...the dude with the green checkered shirt looks like King Diamond...the guy with the black and yellow stripes could be the bass player from UFO but the one with the orange hair is just straight up gay.

'16 T150-148" MR-Caribou-3.5EB-3.73LS-Premium Pkg-Leather-Side and back glass-Alloys-Block heater-Short power heat + sig-Reverse sensors. Here comes the painter with the real nice van...
Ordered 10/26
Built 12/23...in transit two days later
ETA Jan 13-19
Laid before my feet on Jan 14
I'd put a TRUMP bumper sticker on it, but I'm quite certain it would be vandalized.

It's making fun of Van Halen, David Lee Roth in particular (rock and roll clown...who does cocaine). Dr Rockso was such a popular character in the series after just one appearance that they had to make a backstory and feature him in several more episodes. He's the most annoying character ever, which is why I went as Dr Rockso for Halloween! hence the avatar. My fellow Gen X friends hosted a party (my old drummer), many boomers there as well, everyone with 6 figure+ incomes and responsible, socially approved personas. Dr Rockso wreaked havoc, in character the entire night. It was glorious.

Avatar will change with the seasons.

Hahaha! I recognized Doctor Rockso. Still does not take away the fact that he is one heck of a creepy clown.
Especially with all of the clowns scares that happened earlier this year, my phobia of clowns has sky rocketed.

I have to give you mega kudos for staying character the whole time at a party, that must have drove some of the party goers nuts!

They got really, really tired of me shouting and announcing that "I do c-c-cocaine b-b-baby!" about every 2 minutes. It was a wonderful evening.

Hahahaha!

As funny as I find that, I would have to agree with the party-goers, I'm sure that would have gotten over-bearing fast!

Regardless, as long as you had one **** of a time portraying that character, that's all that counts.

Exclamation Attention Aristo & bobojay

I have been off the forum for over a week, due to being Banned, like others have on this forum, for the wrong reason.

The reason for the action taken against me and others, we reported spammers , using the ⚠️ button on the bottom left of "Messages". We did not go after the spammers directly, we chose to do it the way the forum was set up, and let the forum "Administration" handle the problem.
In return we were the ones banned from the forum.

Using the "Contact Us" link on the main page, only brought responses giving me a new password, in order to sign in. Using that new password(s) took me momentarily to my "Welcome" sign in page, then immediately to the page notifying me I was banned.

Transit Forum, evidently you have a coding error in your system when banning offenders, that needs to be looked at and changed, so that responsible members aren't kicked off the sight, when trying to help.

It was very hard to get the attention of someone in administration to look and see what had happened to me, evidently because of their automated responses. I would suggest the members reach out and have a way of contacting at least one other member, other than through the forum. That way if they too are banned they have a way of having another member send a PM to administration to get some action.

You will know when a fellow member is banned because the line below their screen name that normally says their membership status, will be replaced with the word "Banned" on all the Threads and messages they have ever made on the forum.

I reached out to a dealership in another State, who one of our members has close ties to, and he passed on a message to that member, who then called me and was able to send a PM about what had happened.

I don't want to name him, in case admin gets upset about this post, and takes me off the forum again. He knows who he is, Thank You for helping.

Good to be back.
