Some people decided to take their talents to south beach...

But seriously, some mods wanted to make their own forum, left, and some people joined them.

Are you interested in a position?

This will be my last post here, advice/suggestion in hopes that RF does survive, because I did like the site (even with the annoying adds and crashes).. But The only thing that the RF had going for it, differently than realgm or whatnot was Mods, who didn't ban posters without a legitimate reasons:
Raptors Forum | Toronto Raptors Forums & Message Boards - Announcements in Forum : News & Announcements
And they didn't delete posts unless they were offensive to other posters.

Imo mods did a fantastic job, of maintaining the balance.

My point is if you think you can survive by banning people left and right, deleting posts in attempts to hide the other site, than the RF is screwed. So.. maybe the other site is not a problem (there were always other sites) maybe the problem is in RF itself? Maybe you should try to get the Mods who are actually competent rather than trying to fill the spot with whoever is willing to take it?

Most of the old posters are gone and you know that, but RF is still one of the first forums that pop up on the google search, so instead of trying to patch up what's clearly broken maybe you should try to make it new and better (most importantly fair towards the posters) so you give yourself a good chance to attract new members.

I wish you luck, and please delete my profile

We don't want to delete posts. Instead, spam and other problematic posts are moved to a hidden recycle bin forum.

It was inevitable once the full page add came in the background. Its a fucking nuisance.

Personally, I remember seeing the first Bodog add and it was like...fuck...some fucking douchebag is trying to make money off this place...somebody who doesn't care at all about the forum personally. No emotional interest. And then the full add page came and I feel like I'm making this person money by unintentionally visiting Bet365 on a daily basis.

The advertisements were completely inconsistent with the spirit and brand of Raptorsforum.

We were not banning people randomly, or randomly deleting posts. The posts that were being moved were posts which were advertising other forums. No forum would allow other forums to advertise their forum. It's business 101. As for the members that were banned, it was not random. It was members who were PM'ing members and posting the new forum all over the place, even after we posted new regulations in regards to advertising other forums.

As for the advertisements, the owners are working to clean them up.

Too little too late. You should have come over with the rest of the ramfam Duca. This place not going to make it into 2016 with more than 50 posters.

I don't get all the hatefulness, why not just leave this forum in peace?
Let the remaining mods and users rebuild this into a succesful board, it can be done with time.

The ads never bothered me. The modding neither. It was the instability of the website in recent months that made me leave. But that can be fixed. The departure of the more hardcore users is unfortunate but there will be new ones for sure.

Anyway, if I owned a bakery and a rivalling baker tried to sell his bread in my shop I would be pissed too, so the current mods are in the right imho.

Just my 2 cents, I'm off to the other forum!

Thanks for pointing this out. The hosting company admitted that they left the site on an older server for too long. They moved us to a more stable server last night.

I'm guessing the ads still bother some people and we can tone them down by doing things like showing fewer of them to members who are logged in.

No, we have tons of history here. The Raptors aren't the first NBA team to have more than one fan site.

The ads are all along the side of the page. For me, it takes up about 1/3 of the entire page, and because of the Bet365 ads, I cannot access these pages at work.
