      What qualifies me as OG? If I was around from crubs? Fents and load cam knock? The great vortex crash? Well I was around for crubs but not the crash I am a lurker not a poster probably why no one really posts in threads I start

      i agree, this place is really slow as of late...i think the mk2 scene in general is getting kinda old, not many people who really love these cars as much as youngsters who are trying to keep basically pieces of junk running as cheap dailys until the can afford something better....

      I noticed the big drop off of activity when the forum switched to vBulletin from ZeroForum in May 2010.

      It took some getting used to.

      There is some info on the site statistics here

      http://www.statmyweb.com/site/forums.vwvortex.com

      And it shows the big decline in traffic in 2010 and that it hasn't ever really recovered.



      But with that said, I'm still here.

      I haven't been here as long as some of you but i tend to stay away from posting anymore. I have noticed that there aren't alot of familiar names anymore.
      1. The Vortex is full of Brand Name Whores ,It's not their fault, That's how they were raised

      2. What i post is strictly my opinion, If you don't like it go cry to your mother, even though she hates you too

      Yeah thats pretty much when i quit coming here. I was an advertiser at the time and was never compensated for the down time when the site crashed. When it came back up and things were dead they tried to say that everything was the same and wanted me to pay the same RIDICULOUS amout to advertise.

      like bad brad said... youngsters just trying to keep there "cool kid hip cheap" car running. Once its dead, they buy a MK6 if they like the brand, and we never see them again. yay!!!! It would be interesting to see actually a % on how many build threads get finished.

      not sure which threads are more ridiculous these days, the "og's looking for fallen homies" threads or the "how can I make my mk2 cool" threads...

      I've been driving modified mk1's and mk2's for close to 15 years now with no knowledge of vortex until a handful of years ago. This place has been cheesy from the day I joined so just assumed it always has. Must of missed out on the hay day around here but it's pretty dumb how some of you bash people just cause they weren't on this website back in the day

      sorry for adding my bio to your thread, I'll go back to being nobody now
