Welcome guys. Glad you found us over here. This is a relaxed, small and tight group of people that love their build logs and cars. A few people over the years have migrated/hung-out over to here to find a good place away from the craziness of the monster forums, or to go with out the super technical detail sites like ECA, SSA and DIYma. I have not pushed too hard on the growth of the forum in a little while and tried to let to grow more organically, and we are always looking for ways to improve this little site, while not having the blind fan boys, fly-by-night brands or flamers etc.

Mark and I brought it on line back in late 2007 actually, we saw there was a void of quality general audio boards out there. SSA seems to be a great place for people to search out info and use it as a resource, but many seem to just be lurkers because they are scared to join the conversations. So a more free-flowing, laid back site for fun made sense. We initially tried the SMF board software, which I liked a lot but it was quite limited and did not have all the add-ons, flexibility or support that Invision does. So we brought CA-F up to speed with the best software in early 2008.

It actually started off kind of hot, shortly after we absorbed CustomizeYourVehicle.com into CA-F. That site was owned by Patrick S, whom I had helped extensively, to grow that site, but he kept cheaping out on hosting and software. So once it finally was about to go kaput, I offered to merge it into CA-F, so he would not have to worry about hosting or software fee's, and the staff could come along too. Well that only lasted for a little while because Patrick went off and started CACO. Once again, I helped him with the start of that site, but the moment the new kiddies that kissed ass to be on the moderation staff told Patrick that CACO could copy the SSA format and bring on companies like RD, my response was that RD was a massive mistake and that I was gone if they brought on RD.

Well, I think we all know what happened. They brought on RD, I left that site, RD screwed countless people on product and money, Patrick had numerous bogus contests and give-away's, while using vendor/donation money to hook up his car or line his pockets instead of keeping CACO up to par. CACO, became the haven for the young, ignorant or blind-fanboys so loads of new members with little experience, lots of time and no money, came rolling in. With teenager, trigger happy, power tripping moderators and bogus give-away's/contest at the same time of controversial Anthony buying ROE, CACO grew very rapidly and became overrun with the truly inexperienced that pushed and hyped very poor methods, brands and audio myths. At the same time of a major hosting issue we had, this (CA-F) newer, growing and well built site was quickly over looked and traffic suffered due to not directly catering to that group.

A couple of years later, Mark started Classfiedzz.net. It was to be the sensible and competently run alternative to CACO, CSF and CAJ (who is now long gone). CLZZ (Classifiedzz.net) also started off pretty hot, but it needed more push behind it to grow it. And with the kiddies already latched onto CACO and SMD, the rapid growth potential was not there. So with so much effort needed to run SSA, CLZZ started to suffer and gradually became very slow. About a year ago, we merged CLZZ into here (CA-F), so the format, posts and purpose of CLZZ remain, but there is less space to cover and run.

Moral of the story is CA-F has actually been around over 4 years, and has survived the explosion of sub-par forums a few years ago, it out lasted a few others that had much more traffic initially, it has helped support now defunct websites and has kept other sites data still available, all the while having a quality, smaller and close-nit group of people steadily visit the website. I would love to have more traffic here, if they are here to actually be part of the site. This site actually does very well in search engine listings.

Quite the history there... I would be glad to help get some growth around here cuz I know quite a few guys that are getting sick of the useless name dropping on CA.com and the other big forums...

What do you mean by the name dropping? I know what it means, but not sure what you are referring to. If they are great audio people and would like the atmosphere, invite them.
