Good bye
I suppose this doesn't matter now and has not for quite a long time. I personally am glad to see the site close. It isn't because of the people, but due to the poor attitude and decisions of Mark Ryder. Censorship and piss poor attitude is the main reason why this site has failed. It is the main reason why myself and many others have left. He once censored my post only because it said something negative(the truth) about one of his sponsors. His reply was "you know why" That is a bull**** answer and reason. You are losing your site because of the fact that karma finally caught up to you. You can blame it on trends or whatever you like, but lets face it. Your just a flat out asshole and this is one of the primary reasons why this is going away. BTW, your recent posts is a complete joke and people are having a good laugh on other venues. Delete this, ban me, DON'T GIVE A DAMM! Nobody else may read this, but I know you sure will Mark.

This is your opinion and your entitled to it but you're wrong.

This site is superior to all the other ones in terms of content and technical expertise. It's Mark's site, always has been. There's been a lot of good times on this site and it's made a great contribution to the hobby. I've been pinked, had posts deleted and edited. Big deal. If you want to talk about censorship, sniveling and whining there are plenty of sites for you to go on that are a lot worse than this one.

I'll miss it.

Yes mistakes were made... but that’s life. Censorship of reps, adding unnessessary layers to the site for the sake of organizing it. It all takes a toll, but the biggest is the fact that the hobby is in decline. And that has nothing to do with mark. Manufacturers are also closing up and the first thing they take away is advertising. Things change and so do attitudes . RR will be missed despite it’s flaws.showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

Me too. I hate to see Runryder goes.

To Mark, I would like to thank you for your effort in running an excellent forum dedicated to Rc helicopter enthusiasts. I learnt a lot here in the past 20+years.

All the best, Mark.

You nailed it. Especially the part about unnecessary layers added to the website. That was probably a lot of work with good intentions but caused me to start using the site less. For me, the site was a lot cleaner, simpler and stuff easier to find several years ago. That's a minor point though because there is no doubt the hobby is in major, major decline.

The following URL is RR's same old RC helicopter home page...

https://rc.runryder.com/helicopter/home/

With that in mind, what part was problematic?

IT's not face book! Apparently that is what the people want. Now keep in mind I have never really seen face book so I do not know what I am missing. I can tell this I do not like the web having control over me to the point (any more than I have to) I keep GPS turned off because I get tired of receiving question "How did you enjoy Kroger on your visit" I know this is the world we live in today but...
I tell my daughter what ever you put on the web is there FOREVER and I am not going to put my life on the web. You never know how someone else is going to use the information in the future.
