Title: New GTR Club - for all Nissan cars
Post by: xxfr on February 07, 2012, 03:07:23 PM
There is a new GTR club around now, you don't need to own a gtr to be in and the best thing is it consists of rational people who are a good bunch. I know the group and most are good mates of mine.  

Join up and enjoy guys. There is a cruise on this Sat so see if anyone wants to join in.

Had a quick look, saw a bunch of GTR-Elite members - did that fall over?

If everyone on this forum joined SDU that would be a good start.

To be fair I just glanced at it, but all the names I saw were people I'd seen back before I was on GTR-Elite - wouldn't have a clue who was or wasn't banned, though mildly amused nonetheless...

I had actually decided to come up to SDU AGM and become a paid member last year, was pretty keen on helping breathe life back into this club but due to a few things that unfolded on here I was talked out of it and strictly speaking take it or leave it.

I still pay a minor interest in it as I've been around it since near its inception and would quite like to see it carry on and maybe build back to full glory to something along the lines of what the guys who first made it had envisaged.  

It is good to see it has gained some popularity again, I hope the committee stick to their promises/intentions and make something happen... there's no point to joining a paid club that doesn't act like a paid club.

Says the guy who has another forums name as his signature here, lol.

You would really like to discuss your dirty laundry out on this forum, wouldn't you? Told you numerous times on your elite forum that I have no interest in stooping to any such level. You have time for these petty inconsequential things, I don't.  

You have nothing good to say here obviously, please kindly get off this thread. If you go on, you will prove the above. Choice is yours.
 
To anyone else who does want to discuss the "group that got kicked out of elite forum" topic, find out by the asking the the very group on the gtr-nz club of the petty inconsequential things.

All I want to say is, it seems "someone" still thinks that dictatorship is very much alive on elite forum.  :boohoo:

Not you mate. You are all good.

If I am breaking any rules, I most humbly apologise.

GTR Elite was conceived as a joke by myself and Fryline in 2001. I never thought it would ever be this funny. It's membership is by referral only. Elite? Not really....

We just wanted a GTR forum but we always stayed friends with the older SDU members and even had some SDU people along with us in Taupo last week.

Anyway, no undoing the past so onwards and upwards SDU!

I think there's only barely enough room for three clubs personally. SDU (est. 2000 or earlier - for all of NZ), SSE (est. 2004 - for South Island owners) and maybe a GT-R club (all of NZ).

I tried signing up to GT-R Elite, but my registration was likely declined since i wasn't 'referred' by anyone.

It seems all three clubs (SDU and SSE especially) are related in some way though, SSE was formed entierly from the South Island section of SDU and i'm guessing most 'Elite' members are/were SDU/SSE members too?

None of these groups is actually a club, by definition anyway, and it shows...

SSE isn't a 'club' officially, we aren't incorporated and may not go down that path again (after reading up a lot about the incorporation process, and asking other clubs).

We don't need 'club' bashing though as it doesn't do anyone any favours.

"none of these groups ARE actually a club", but seriously what kind of tosspot statement is that to make, no ones asking you to be here, club, group, clusterf**k who cares what word is used, its about community, if you dont want to be part of it the doors over there

all paid SDU members have SDU member below their login name, i cant help but notice yours doesnt have this, therefore westybobs statement is still valid. Forums membership!= SDU membership

Somedays I wonder if there are just pissed off people with nothing better to do than argue on the internet. **** sake, GTR Elite, SDU and GTR-NZ are all about having a passion for something, it happens to be the same thing too by the way.

I was one of the people who was 'removed' from GTR Elite (this isn't the place for it but if anyone wants to know my perspective then just ask me), now after a lot of counselling I managed to get over it  but I missed having somewhere to talk crap with mates. Yes I'm infrequently on SDU too but I don't really know you guys thaaat well, maybe I'm just shy haha

Now here pops up another place I can talk ****e to mates, maybe learn something, maybe share some stuff I learnt through my car failures...thats all it is, no need to bag it, its existance isn't detrimental to you and your life surely? There are plenty of Skyline forums the world over, we all like the same thing, we're all remarkably similar, love to talk cars, hang out and look at cars while talking about them, driving them then stopping, looking at them and talking about how we drove them etc etc

Maybe its cos I'm getting old but I really am over the partisan nature of car groups, seriously these days we have more to worry about than each other if we want to keep doing what we do now.

This thread could go south from here but I hope you all think before posting (Sorry Eddie :) )

And I stand by what I said then just because I have grounds to do so. If it bothered you or you wanted more information in a business that was in the first place none of your concern, you should have voiced your concerns then.  

You seemed to always have a say on everything anyone has to say here because you are so opinionated. Sitting at a computer all day analysing every word that is posted here and adding your 100c to each.

Told you before take a chill pill. You are a very helpful guy and you have my respect for that. In my opinion mean well for the greater good of this club but please Stalk3r STOP JUDGING everyone.
