    Don't need to imagine. Look at StreetCommodores.

We started the Street Commodores forum when I was at Express and while it was a great publicity tool it was also a massive drain on resources. They actually can't afford to turn it off now because the backlash would be huge - better to not do it at all.
    They need to crash the database, put up a "We are working on fixing it" apology, point them to other forums and say you will email them when the technical issues are resolved.

    You almost need someone employed full time to look after it because you can't rely on a couple of 16yo moderators to keep track. Especially when there's a multi-million dollar business involved. Someone who is capable of making hard decisions would be needed to run it and basically all those types are tied up running the magazine.

    And then SM tell me they still plan to run something but they do seem to be dragging their feet.

    I'm definitely running my car again in June, but might get it to the track before then if I can.
