    no... it's a commuity builder.

    Basically what it does, is it gives a place for you to link ALL of your forums that you visit on a regular basis into one profile. It just opened, so a lot of sites aren't on it, but a lot of the big ones are! and so are we.

    Take the video tour as linked above.

    I'm just testing this out... if there isn't a good response to it, i will remove it.

    Looks like a Myspace ripoff.. But I joined.. So I hope B gets a few cents out of it. Got to give back to hondaswap in one way or another.

    you only had this up for 2 days. give it a week and see what happens then make your decision on whether to kill it or not.

    There's not enough gain for what I was putting out to it...

    I had to disable the SEO re-write on member profiles for it to work, and that's not cool in my book. so, until they can fix that, i won't be re-enabling it.

    but, the group is still there, and you can still create a profile, and link to the group and everything... its just not linked form here directly

    I signed up too but im still kinda confused on what it does. Did you try and get in contact where there people about that "SEO" deal that was a problem? Maybe they arnt aware of the problem. With all the different forum software maybe they didnt get a chance to test all of them.
