We have been trying for a while to get someone to respond and got someone to finally respond last week.
We were told that because we also have a forum on our site we cannot become a paid vendor here and we cannot contribute to the site unless we take down our forum because it is being looked at as competition to this forum.
We have tried to explain to the admins of this site that our main business is our online store and our walk in facility. We do not run our own forum to compete with this one or any other forum. It is there for our customers as a resource for assistance and to help us share more details on products, installations and information on us and our fellow partners who help develop products for us.
Over time we plan to set it up as an online "How to" forum for help to those that choose to customize and personalize their 500.
Our forum was set up when we first launched and is there simply as another resource for fellow 500 owners. We have invested way to much time and money in it to simply shut it down.
Other 500 forums that we contribute to do not have an issue with it, but the admins of this one do. I hope we can work it out with them and I truly hope that they see us as a contributing member of the community and not as competition.
We have appealed their decision and hope that they change their minds. We would love to participate here and assist our fellow drivers.
If all the sudden you see us disappear from this forum you can probably assume that we were banned or were asked to not post here anymore.
