Let's see if I'm the only one (well only one left since many have said piss on this and left) that thinks the admin are jackasses and running the site into the ground.

We all know there is no turning back once I hit the post button because we can't delete threads so there is a pretty high probability that my time is coming to an end here as chances are likely pretty high of me getting the boot.

Anyone have any better places to get together let us know.

I would happily set up another forum as soon as I can get haying done. In the mean time a guy could also use discord. Free uncensored chat. I quickly set up a name. Just a matter of setting up areas specific to what you want to chat about. Join the Combine forum for farmers, by farmers. Discord Server!
I hope it works. Can't get any worse then here.

If you’re going to setup another (Combine) forum ....... just make sure it was like the old format, or similar, to this one. Posting pictures & video easily would be very useful in the new forum.

Rod, I really have no idea about setting up a forum. Although I agree with you completely. I have the new free forum up, but have not setup threads or anything. It doesn't look too bad for posting pictures, but is limited to 1mb. I am not sure if there are any other options for forums. Maybe it would be better to have a paid forum? I would think 20 bucks a year just between the regular posters should be enough? Are guys willing? I have no wish to be in complete control over it either. A cooperative effort is my goal where farmers say how it is run.

This is the most lopsided poll I think I've ever seen here. I PM'd this link to admin. Doesn't matter, they won't do **** and I'm gone anyway. Just going to stick around enough to shove this in their face.

I never envisioned this forum site to go sideways like it has and from what I see its been administration created or encouraged to have and support ... or even have created the profiles themselves ?, and try to rile up the farmers which it certainly has. I signed up to the newly created site and will see how the transition flows from here to there. It is sad though all the good information on topics/equipment that is here but as long as it stays up it will be accessible by internet searches.

Before too long, the new site will be full of good useful information. All great things have small beginnings.

Certainly some shite going on on this website. I looked at the white moths thread earlier today and it reappeared with no update since I looked last. So if normal and some consistency, it should not show up since its last update was 2 days ago. However, it still shows up as if I didn't just look at it today. Meanwhile Trump thread was never looked at today and it is off of the new list. Somebody obviously is trying to control and manipulate what I see first. It seems someone edits what I am supposed to look at! That is disgusting. As If I need to hunt to find what I am interested in looking at. Newfarmer123 can dominate and spam all and never get banned for ridiculous comments. Talk about stifling free speech!!!!

It would be nice if there was a way to notify past members of a new forum. Before the password issues TCF really was in its hay day.
I know Twitter has become many people’s go to resource, and we no doubt lost some members to SM. However IMO the Ag twitter circle has also become a shadow of what it briefly was.
These forums are still a much better platform for Ag discussions than SM.
I wouldn’t be surprised if old members would like to return to a revamped forum.

it depends on the information I am looking for.
Twitter has immediate feed back lots of great poster.
The Combine Forum has great historical information on Lexion combines.
AgTalk has more technical information on a wide range of topics.
Ag facebook with a few exceptions is weighted more toward hired men and hobby farmers
I hope they do keep this forum up I am new to it have just found this a few months ago.

TIA Paul

I don't get it? The new forum is for farmers by farmers. Why the problem? We have no spam posters etc. If you like to play with child trolls I guess this is the site. Again, the reason for the new site is because it is a farming site(and always will be). Nothing more, nothing less. Real farmers helping each other. Apparently that that is not in style anymore. I am pretty disappointed to be quite honest with some of the attitudes here. So much for trying to make things better for people who have dirt under their nails. But wtf do I know.

My pink caddy has horns on the hood!

Fill of juice and the bags are packed. Personally I just exist here to bother the admin.
