Perhaps if you told us what you have in mind, we'd be interested.

True, but as it is I am not interested and...well, "confused" is too strong a word...but I don't even know why I find the original post boring. I just assume that I have nothing in common based on the syntax. However, even someone who isn't as put off by that, might wonder what's actually going on.

Maybe I should have just scolded the op for not using "mutant vehicle".

It is a reddit thing:

http://www.reddit.com/r/artcar

Don't fall for it, BetaBox is a remorseless cyborg killer intent on genocide. It rolled by my camp on Saturday but luckily didn't see us.

I have a feeling that this is a Reddit user.. as the "r/" designation is used in sub-forums there. He's either being cute and wants to talk about art cars, is suggesting that we start a specific art car forum or the like.

EDIT: Beat me to it by a few seconds :lol:

Whoops. Will it be particularly after my blood after my disrespectful replies?

No subforum for artcars and mutant vehicles. Transportation warrants being broken out as a subforum when you include mutant vehicle discussions, if you separate them then neither one warrants being broken out from Q&A. You can either cry into your pillow at night over the injustices of the world, or you can suck it up and make use of this board.

Lol.. we figured it out. See above. OP was trying to garner support for his new Reddit sub-forum..

Generational. Unfortunately, I'm not from that generation. :( :shock:
But the art car was cool.

Why is that generational? Reddit is a pretty cool site, really.. It's amaaaaaaaaazing the breadth and amount of people that they get on there.

I actually have an account there. I sometimes do use it to post new blog posts to help drive traffic, but it's automatic from my blog. Other than registering years ago, I don't think I've ever been back to the site, let alone recognize the "r/" jargon.

yay, found some redditors



Thanks for the love out there, and to the haters, well, you will be EXTERMINATED!!



I will be planning on making a net scrapbook of some art cars, maybe check it out in a week or so.

As for the generational thing, shit i'm 30+, i find 50+ people all the time. Kids show their parents then they are hooked for a bit.
See you in 2014

I was exterminated multiple times near center camp, usually when I had my back turned.
