Exactly, or don't WANT FB in their lives.

Not to mention that ROTM is/was a DF creation with a (or multiple) Vendor sponsoring....that is now being considered 'owned' and you're taking it elsewhere?

I wasn't aware of that, and it wasn't intended to be a dump on DF, if that's how it read. I just enjoy seeing truck pics of the different themes each month, voting on my favorite, and seeing who wins at the wire. One of the reasons I enjoy the forum.

Itís really not that big of a deal if Dmaxstore wants to move to Facebook. Sure, itís sad to see the forums dying, and supporting vendors move elsewhere. All that we would need to do though is find somebody that is willing to take over responsibility of taking care of ROTM each month, and try to get another supporting vendor to do the same thing Dmax store had been doing.

It's a daunting task, for sure. When Jason (TowMaster) was around, he worked tirelessly to keep it going; the timeline, keeping up, working with Vendors, trying to have fresh topics....the personal time to sort thru entries and post polls.

And also on the Vendor's end too, with keeping up with the prizes and gifting.
(there was a fallout once, when winners started to question tardy prizes, anger ensued and the sponsor left in a huff).

Sure, it sounds exciting in taking on the task, week in and week out....but personal lives have their ups/downs and it doesn't take much to suddenly be days or weeks behind...still voting on a poll while you're halfway thru the next month.

And trying to catch up with a calendar that's always chasing and looking to win out...gets old.
I wish I had more answers (perhaps the topic was just too morbid for some folks?)....but we've been at this point in the discussion in the past. Had the initiative to take on the full task on their own not happened, it would've been dead long ago.

May 2019 ROTM - Trucks in the cemetery

Exactly. Nobody realizes how much time and effort goes into keeping up with this.

That being said, itís understandable that Dmax store wants to move to Facebook, because thatís where all the action is, and they are in it to drive traffic to their website/store. Thereís way more interaction there, but for me itís never been worth my time weeding through all the junk/crap/personal opinions/patting your own back/fighting about stupid stuff/I could go on and on, just to find the good stuff. Itís more of a place to hang out and BS ( think Russí build thread, only much bigger ), with actual good information mixed in here and there. But trying to search and find that information is next to impossible, if you lose it in your feed. It disappears downstream in the unknown abyss. To me, the forums are much more informative, and you can actually get help from somebody that knows what theyíre talking about on a more personal level.

OK, rant over.
