So what's going on with Escape-City vs. Escape-Central? What was the reasoning for creating it? Not saying it isn't a bad idea as the other one is horribly outdated, yet I don't fully see the point of a whole new site. I've heard that new accounts couldn't be created on ********* which is also a problem.

To be honest, I'm sticking with the old unless this one somehow takes over. I'm definitely sticking to it until the colors are changed in the forum. It's almost impossible to find the actual post with the colors only varying slightly between posts. Posts seem to hide between signatures.

Thanks for sharing. This site is barely a week old and getting better everyday. Unfortuately the other site has not been updated in years. Keep stopping by to see the on going improvements. You're always welcome here :)

Welcome and thanks for being our 80 member! :yahoo:
Comments and suggestions are appreciated and will definitely be considered.
This site is just getting started by peope who really care about maintaining an informative and updated site and already changes have occurred on a regular basis.
Also, I think the world wide web is big enough to have more than one Escape site. ;)
Keep checking back with us and again, welcome!!! :) :beer: :) :beer:

Just the fact that the old forum was horribly outdated was enough to cause a lot of long time members to gradually drift away. Many members offered to help out with the site & where totally rebuffed by the site owner I guess.

The members who had tried to stick it out finally got fed up with the way the old site was being run, the total lack of any reasonable moderation which allowed 27 page flame wars to continue just got to the point where it wasn't fun anymore.

Stick around here for a bit & I think you will see a real fresh improvement in the whole atmosphere. The site is constantly being updated/upgraded & constructive suggestions are always welcome (unlike the other site).

If you don't like it here, then stick with the old way. Nobody here will hold it against you. There is no reason we can't all get along/co-exist just fine.

Hi and thanks for visiting our site. :beer: While we are not trying to compete with anyone. We are certainly learning from observed mistakes. As far as we're concerned there is no us and them. This is something we felt compelled to do, to give everyone a place to hang their hat and feel comfortable.

Thanks for the info and I agree with the lack of moderation and updates. I just hope this board stays on topic a lot more...and judging by the 1 or 2 Escape topics and the 100 non-Escape topics, it's not starting off good. Though I also realize it's just getting going so I will not worry about that until (and if) the user count keeps growing.

Good luck...I'll be lurking.

BTW: GET RID OF THE SAVE BUTTON!! haha, just confused the heck out of me and I couldn't find my message.

Make sure you check out all our forums. There are definitely more than 1 or 2 Escape topics. :))

I'm sure you really meant to say the 1 or 2 non-Escape topics........

When I said we welcome "constructive criticism", I didn't mean sarcastic aggressive comments.

If you keep up that nonsense, you will be posting somewhere else real quickly.........

Please change your registration e-mail to a valid address, or we'll need to set up this board to send validation e-mails before anyone can post. We've tried to make this board as user-friendly as we can, and we value your input. I've thought the same thing about post visibility, and the "save" button, and I plan on addressing all user comments next week, when I get home.

But if you're going to offer comments, please do so with a valid e-mail account. We can both bend a little, can't we?

Thanks...and please look through The Garage. We already have more TSB information than any other Escape site...and many other Ford sites as well.

Thanks for your kind comments, Saskbound! What you described is exactly the climate that we were hoping to create here. A community of friends who love these crazy little SUVs and love visiting with each other, too!
