Equinox, Terrain and SRX forum members,
Since starting the Theta forums back in 2009 (Terrainforum.net, Equinoxforum.net and SRXforum.net), we have experienced tremendous growth and built an outstanding online community! Our mods have done an amazing job in keeping spam out and keeping the peace here, although the members have made that VERY easy with few issues over the years. Unfortunately, all online forums require maintenance, updates, patches, bug fixes and server administration that only owners can normally perform. And with my busy work schedule and two kids now playing travel soccer, I simply can't keep up with the demands of such a fast growing community.
So today, I'm proud to announce a new chapter in the life of the Theta forums! We are partnering with Autoguide.com, the premier online community network which successfully runs hundreds of large scale automotive forums. They will take over the hosting, server administration and maintenance duties here. This should help ensure fewer database issues and outages like we suffered last month.
The good news is, not much else will change! I'll still be around as an admin along with the Autoguide admins and the mods you know and love will continue to have their same authority and privilges if they want them. the only change for users should be a more timely maintenance schedule and a smoother running server experience.
I want to personally thank our moderators - IceMan, Sailfish and bowtieman for their thankless efforts on our forums over the years. This place simply would not be the same without you guys! I also want to thank our awesome members here for making this such a welcoming and vibrant community with TONS of great information! You guys have made this a world class automotive forum and together with Autoguide.com, we can keep it going and growing for years to come!
Sincerely, Stacy Drennan (admin)
