we asked ourselves that same question a few days ago when we noticed that we were "archived." we were taken by surprise due to lack of communication. there was no prior notification and only when we took the initiative did we learn of what was going. long story short, it is not in the best interest of MRI to continue as an "official" site vendor due to the current circumstances required to be one. HOWEVER.....

HAVE NO FEAR!! we are not going anywhere, we will continue to be a part of 600rr.net just like we have been since the beginning. the only difference now is that for the time being we will not have our banner and section in the Vendors area. we will continue to offer our support in any shape or form possible like we have always done so. just think of us as disco and cozy before they became "official" site vendors with their own sections in the vendor areas, but with that Riders Inc commitment and passion everyone is familiar with.


cheers

Is vertical scope asking for too much money?

Good to know that you guys will still be around.
I have bought a few things from MRI in the years past with great prices and customer service!

I haven't been around very long and was wondering what kind of problems some mods and members were having when the forum was sold to a new owner a little bit ago...startin to see it now though.

This kind of thing is total crap!!!!!! This used to be a great community where everyone watched out for and took care of each other. Vendors gave us great prices and service and they got loyal customers who praised them to the high heavens.

It wasn't an overnight change but I am starting to see why some outstanding members have left. The new owners have commercialized this place to the point that it is disgusting! Non stop ads, "supporting vendors" who show no interest in the community, etc.

I'm all for the next guy makin a buck but when companies and members with a good history here are getting pushed out, it ruins what was once a great thing. I'm guessing MRI didn't cough up the dough to remain a Supporting Vendor and so the owners decided they weren't going to give them the "advertisement" of having their own sub-forum.

It's no longer about what the community wants or is helpful to them, its about making more and more money.

Geez! Well this sucks! I've literally spent thousands at MRI so to see a site vendor like MRI no longer a site vendor is disheartening

/agreed with Grizzly. Site vendors from before the sale should be grandfathered in. They have given more than enough to the community to need to have to pay "site vendor" fees.

Also Ad Block Plus (as stated above) is the ****. My own way of sticking it to the man (new owner).

greed always leads to the downfall of great things. Should I skip the premium membership now??

It is however nice to see that MRI will be around for us, and that they let us know what is going on. Truely commendable. (and awesome prices)

Sorry to see this happening, but very glad to know you guys will still be around. I've shopped with you guys ever since you all came around back when the site first started, and will continue to do so, regardless of site 'status' you may have!

Thanks for the clarification Andrew!

My question was more geared towards the new ownership and the changes that have been, and have yet, to be made regarding the site. I also use a mac, and never have a problem viewing the site even without the premium membership.

I will definitely not be paying for any kind of membership, premium or otherwise...not as long as the current owners are running the place at least. Sure, before the new owners took over i would have if it would have benefited the community, but not with how things are now.
