    We should just go back to having race discussion in a thread. I basically can’t follow race discussion anymore since the chat box started unless I watch the race live, it used to be so clutch I could just come home and read the theead as if it was live and see everyone’s reactions. I wouldve missed the Joey/Matt discussion if it wasn’t in the thread, would’ve probly missed a lot of discussions over the years, which I have been missing many weeks ever since the chat box started. Yes it’s easier to post but it basically means you have to watch it live to see live reaction. Probly unpopular but easy to forget that not everyone sees it live

    ^^^THIS! I'd be okay if you could go back in the chatbox and read everything from the last "X" hours, but nope.

    Thread cleaned up. I left the two chatbox posts up so @MattyO could see them. It's up to him on what's done with the chatbox and such.

    Happy Speedweeks, everyone!

    I’m kinda happy the race is on Sunday because I hate Sundays with no NASCAR! :)

    Also, I would be fine if we got rid of the chat box; I hardly ever used it anyway. I miss reading through all the mess in the race weekend thread when it was all said and done since I’m not on my phone/computer during the race, rather watching with my family.

    Happy NASCAR season, everybody! :D

    Yeah I purposefully watch the race several hours later on DVR to save time by skipping all the delays/commercials so anything in the chatbox (and drama) I'll miss lol

    I personally don't understand why these are merged. This just begs for 1,000-page form. In which no one can navigate after the fourth race. Just my 2 sense. Also, it is a huge inconvenience for those people who only want to participate in one or the other.

    Yes because those skirts totally didn’t fail on the Xfinity car last year. The flaring isn’t a big deal and using the new skirts will only create problems once they start coming off again. Auto Club and Atlanta will be a rough time.

    So, have you guys decided on what to do with pick em and race chat threads? We keeping them separate? Which I think is the right think to do as well. If so, mattsrd's stickies need to be removed. And do I need to give @ShadowKnight508 some mod permissions so he can do his job properly?

    As far as the chat, it's staying. The race day threads are 80% shitposting and useless dribble anyway. I'd rather have that done in the chatbox. Sorry to the few who don't watch the races live. We can't make everyone happy. I've finally learned that lesson running a few forums. Some will be happy and some won't. There is nothing I can do to make everyone happy.

    Now, on to the few here that are getting a little cocky and seem to never be wrong, that's fine. I don't visit enough to give a shit. However I must let the cocky know it all's in on something, people complain. And if the complaining continues, guess what happens?

    @MattSRD28 came to me and wanted to combine the two threads in order to help get more exposure for the Pick-Em Series (since some members visit the Race Weekend thread and not the Pick-Em for that race), so we made it happen. I separated it into two threads last night after some members were not happy with the changes, and Matt ended up merging the two threads back together (hence why he made that special post letting people know that the two would be combined from here on out).

    As for being a Moderator, I am humbled that you have made the offer in regards to that, but I don't think it would be the best of ideas. I used to be a forum moderator on another site (AnimeVice, 2011-2015) and sadly I made the poor choice of abusing those powers out of frustration in a prolonged spat with several unreasonable members that went on for months, got several people banned, and ended up having my moderator privileges revoked. So for the sake of things, I would have to turn down such an offer.

    @ShadowKnight508 it would only be permissions to sticky threads, lock threads and move posts etc.. Keep things organized so you can do your job more effectively.

    We're not doing them together. Stop making your picks in the race weekend threads. Thanks.

    Why is MBM Motorsports listed on the entry list as “Phoenix Air Racing”?
