    This is whats happening

    one week in and the vote was pitiful, its as if no one was bothered, well thats ok it was still democratic. I have now resigned as your moderator and taken the position of admin on the new site effective immediately . i am moving to https://renaultkadjarforum.com/ and i recommend you do the same. the core membership on this site are the best i have known on any forum, they are helpful and tolerant and i would welcome you to the new site to continue to give your advice, whether you own a Kadjar or not. I want to thank you for your understanding over the least few months i might not have answered as quickly as i would have liked but i have done my best, working with one hand behind my back. so they say one door closes and another opens, well lets all open the door on the new site and i await to welcome you there.

    This whole thing is out of hand

    many thanks for your PM but as i have explained many times i want the membership to decide the sites out come. i am getting stick from all sides, i am trying to keep this forum running and with no admin its a dam hard job. i understand your concerns about whats happening could come and bite me on the bum, why would it? left and right i get mail this isnt right, that dont work, why can't you do this ? and i try to explain why and some members are still not satisfied. you have said it yourself the forum is virtually unusable right now, why, can't it be used as normal, it can, nothing stopping people starting topics it just looks like its all being taken up by debates on the move. i have tried to make it a simple as possible, as it is two members have offered to host the new site, this would be easier if there was just one but that's how it is. nowthen, all you have to do is vote, for the choice of moving or not, for the site you like the best, and a new name for the forum. after you have voted forget it, when the votes closed i will tell you who won. if motormouth comes back on i will be making my thoughts very clear. the bottom line is this. i am willing to walk away now i really don't need this shit, the site can look after itself and be closed down next year if it lasts that long. if you want me to delete all the posts regarding the move and me to walk away keep this up Shedder101

    no the site is still here, this is what's happening i have decided the problem here is choice some of the members can't decide a simple concept of voting, looking at the view rate to votes, well it doesn't take a genius to see that. so i am deleting my posts the vote, the domain choice everything. the two members have registered their domains and are building the sites they wish to offer. members will be able to choose the site they want from what's on offer. when they are completed this will be up for 1 week after that, i will stop modorating this site, I will be moving to the new site and invite everyone to come with me. i invite all members to copy the topics they feel are the most important and paste them to the new site. crap posts will be deleted i have copies of all the pdf and links to video files and will be posting those to the site, so its the members images that need to be moved. i will put links to the new site around the old one so people will know where we have gone i will send MM my resignation and that will be my job done here. I have been offered an Admin post on the new site, this i am considering at the moment. this site might keep ticking along until the fees are due or it will crash. without moderation this could be sooner rather than later. I have done my best to keep this site going and its the best option i can offer. i would like to thank you for the support you have given me over the time I have been Moderator. Shedder101

    Hi Ulfire basically your right, admin needs to do the updates and admin stuff on the site, this isnt being done and the site is getting problems, especially at logon. where this site is sitting they charge over £130 a year to host it, remember when it went down? somebody paid and it was back up. i believe MM get revenue to pay this from the adverts on the site. so no MM = closed site march next year if it lasts that long before it crashes. as members i have put together a solution that will keep the site going, but i am not making the decision, you all are i will work with the people to get the site moved, you guys transfer over your quality information, we can all go on abusing everyone lol have you seen one of the offerings we have had? Here its just an open page and is very raw but is what we are looking at

    Ahhhhhh, the calm after the storm

    Firstly, Many thanks Shedder101 for your efforts to date....much appreciated. Although I did vote, I must say that personally I am pleased you have deleted the multiple threads regarding the proposed move, domain choice etc: I found myself in a bit of a quandary which post to answer, as they all were oblique references to virtually the same topic. I for one hope that you will accept an Admin position on whatever site we eventually move to.

    I thought something had happened. Look, no one could have done more, most would have bailed out considering the forum is to help others not ourselves. All I would ask is that any vote for a new site is made clear along with the result of such. "We" will all be along shortly after,

    Bring back the days, when my grandpa was riding his horse. It was so simple. Leave it on a meadow and it refills in a matter of hours... No spanners needed, no spare parts - nothing. And it had so many extras - Cruise control, lane departure warning, auto-driving mode, all terrain drive and so much more. Duh...

    I've noticed quite a few people are voting and putting their tick in the wrong box, ie, not in the topic specific to that domain name, check where you voted and correct if needed Ps don't understand why some folks object to the name Renault appearing in the domain name, can't see it appearing to be an official Renault site and most folks are going to google renault kadjar? I do think given the amount of eu guys who frequent regularly we should avoid anything ending .co.uk, brexiteers may have different views

    The 2 sites share the same type of Forum Platform. It can be set so you, the member, can choose other themes, (How the site looks colours/layout). depending on what the Admin has included in his package for you to access. Rob has experience of running Car related Forums, I do not, and I believe he has had a Kadjar Forum before and may still have data for it. I have a broad spectrum of dealing with websites of many types. There are no real pros and cons between the sites, either one can hold the same data and will require the relevant data to be Copied and Pasted from this site to the other. A sample of this is at Site A HERE ,The 2 subjects have been Copied and Pasted and are searchable. Any additions to the subject would be posted in the same manner you do here and look normal by comparison. Rob appears to like Ads which I'm guessing helps supplement the site costs, me personally am not a fan of Ads, especially if they do not relate to the site I'm visiting, but understand why it is done. If Site A was chosen for the next Forum, it would be Secure in as much it would be https. The only reason it isn't at the moment is due to the fact there is no Domain allocated to it at this time. Rob has not indicated whether there would be additional Admin(s) that have full access to the Domain, Site, etc, should he become unavailable, I think this is very important looking at where we are right now. Hope this information helps. I personally have no problems if Site B is the eventual winner, I would continue to use the Forum regardless, I'm merely offering a free service as I like Kadjars and would probably consider buying another after 4 years of ownership, 2 years to go then!

    I like the look of the raw page you've attached shedder. We've come this far and if we ignore the signs (the other forum, also run by MM I believe, is no longer available) we are only putting off the inevitable. We may as well bite the bullet now and get this new forum started. You're doing a grand job mate and I don't think anybody will disagree with me. Thank you.

    This whole thing is out of hand

    I think all the regulars fully understand you are doing what you have to do or the forum is dead. That won't have escaped genuine members. The clincher for me was when it became known to all that new members could not join. You had to do what was necessary. Only the week before I had made a totally unrelated post saying we needed more and new members without realising the door was locked shut! There is no power struggle, just one valiant mod who's been dumped on, trying to provide a solution to keep the majority satisfied, you can please all the people............. etc etc. My words to shedder which I kept off the forum for obvious reasons were just trying to protect him from anything he may have missed and to ensure this transition is as simple and safe as possible. It's not a time to leave, but I think just hanging around until things are back to "normal" and the forum becomes useable again.

    this is why i am doing this copied from test site B Hello from squilly Quote Post by squilly » Tue May 29, 2018 1:28 pm Hi, I have come to here from renaultkadjarforum.co.uk having failed to register. Perseverence and copious use of the private window to get round the unregistered user view post limit allowed me to find the posts discussing why and the suggested replacement domain names and sites, so I thought I would get in early if this is the one chosen. FYI, I have just purchased a 2016 Renault Kadjar Signature Nav 1.5 dCi 110 Auto in metallic red. Problems with getting the R-Link toolbox to work was the original reason for accessing the forums. One of the posts solved the problem for me, thank you. Regards, squilly.

    Hi all, I thought I should best introduce myself. I have proposed the site https://www.kadjarforums.uk - this is one of the sites up for votes. We seem to have a lot of posts about this on the forum now so I'm posting this here in case someone doesn't read the other thread. The site is setup now and ready to go. It's based on PHPBB, an open source forum platform so no licence fee's to pay. I will cover all costs for the domain and hosting going forward. I've also setup security on the site so it's protected by https. Facebook and Twitter pages will follow. I think what everyone needs now is stability going forward, you need to ensure this is not going to happen in the future and that's what I am offering. I own and run multiple car forums, including the sister site: qashqaiforums.co.uk and others including atecaforums.co.uk, kodiaqforums.co.uk, chrforums.uk - feel free to check them out for yourself. They all have been running for years, the Qashqai one was originally founded around 7 years ago, I took over the running of it about three years ago, under similar circumstances as this. Same as the poster above, I do have a full time job (And managing forums isn't it!) however I do have plenty of time to dedicate to it. I can assist with upgrades and maintenance going forward, I've already said I am happy for the current mod team to remain in place and can promote any others. I've got some discounts lined up ready to go - GAP Insurance for the newcomers, Car Cleaning products for those into that and a Car Insurance company will be on within the next couple of weeks. You can now register and post on https://www.kadjarforums.uk if you want to test it out for yourself. If ever the existing admin returns, I will arrange to transfer all content over to the new site so that nothing is lost. Feel free to drop me a line if you have any questions. Thanks Rob (Ignore my username on here, the original site owner set it up for me.)

    Dear moderator @shedder101 and member @duracel3634 I think that time is convinient to build a new forum with domain kadjarforum.org as we not an commercial institution and nor UK only... Start building a new forum on new hosting platform tomorrow and have time to move all useful content. Invite here all members to register again and also all new interesting folks. Sooner we will start sooner we will have new, useful, working forum. my opinion....

    I think the problem is that shedder can't get in touch with admin ( Motormouth ). Until he can get motormouth to relinquish control of the site , we would have to move . That's my reading of the situation ..though I may be wrong

    Judging by the voting and all the posts here, I'm surprised how many people are following the forum. So far I thought we're basically 10-12 people, which are participating and reading regularly. We'll it's obviously not true. There's been much more attention than expected...

    Split leather on drivers seat

    "I knew it's not leather even before I purchased the car. " This is where J&P are miffed, they probably knew the faux leather on the standard seats was vinyl, but when came to the option of leather seats, assumed they were all leather. Nissan make this clear, not sure about Renault, but you can bet your bottom dollar it will only be in very small print.

    Roof bars

    Something is going wrong when everytime you change car you have to buy a new roof rack/rails. Hate to say this but it's one area the EU failed to legislate in. Manufacturers have to provide a common diagnostic socket so buyers can get their car sorted at a general garage rather than a main stealer, why the issue with universal rail mounts???

    Does anyone understand what is going on? I really don't want to be a pain, but we seem to be voting for a name for a new site at the same time as asking if we should set up a new site. We have people introducing themselves as owners of certain sites. The cart has been overtaken by the horse big style and I think Shredder has a big problem he was genuinely trying to avoid. I have sent a PM to shedeer regarding this.
