I got a message today from another outbackers member that really got me thinking about this site. Can anyone tell me what's happened to outbackers.com? This question is for members more senior then me. I've been a member since July, 2010, and have seen the popularity and number of thread posts tank over the years. Seems to me it started in 2011 when PDX_Doug sold the site to Auto Forums. He must have been the guy who held the whole thing together? What, if anything, can be done to save outbackers.com?
I know it’s been awhile since I posted. Donna and I became SOB’s as we are now the proud owners of a 2018 Chaparral 336TSIK . We had an 2009 Outback 250RS-loved our outback and love our new 5ver even better.
I miss the old Outbackers too. Unfortunately, at the time, Doug had some rules that others did not like. As a moderator then, I was obliged to support Doug’s rules.
Others didn’t like these rules and decided to start another website-Dog and Trailer. A lot of members must migrated over and Outbackers activity changed.
Once Doug left, we tried to change such that we didn’t have to support those rules. By then, it was too late and things started to go downhill.
I miss the old days. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t get it going again.
I am glad this question came up and hope that I can contribute in any way to get that old spark going again.
