Remodeling the Covid Forum

We have had an increasing number of posts in this section of the forum that are wildly off topic, raising hackles and causing an unreasonable level of rancor. It has been disheartening to witness and has reduced the generally pleasant vibe of the Forum substantially.

Most people have long ago formed opinions and will not be swayed by further debate. This toxic back and forth spills out into other sections of the forum and reduces the helpful and friendly discussion that is the hallmark of the Board. Your volunteer site team is tired of patrolling the Covid playground; quelling dustups that serve no real purpose and we ask for your help as we do some remodeling in the Covid forum.

The Covid Forum will remain open but with new regs.


Topics in this section of the forum should be directly related to RVing, travel and camping issues.

We have closed many old Covid topics leaving a few that appear to be on topic and I encourage you to review the restated rules when posting in this section of the forum: https://www.irv2.com/forums/f296/new...me-481656.html

Posts that run afoul of the rules may be deleted without explanation. Older threads and threads that begin to wander off topic will be routinely closed to avoid re-infection.

You can help: There are plenty of fine places on the internet to engage in general debate but we are an RVing forum. Help us stay focused on the the thing that we share in common - an interest in RVing. When discussions begin to wander astray, make a choice to not engage. Instead, hit the report post button on posts that seem counter to the intent of the Covid forum and let the site team manage the issue. Let's get back to discussing RV's and Camping.


Thanks for understanding

Sorry to read this. I understand the moderators felt an additional burden of policing the threads, but the robust debates I found highly informative. I would like to think most educated citizens can sort the wheat from the chaff in these discussions.


Now, the threads on RV electrical problems are an entirely different matter.

My opinion... close down the whole section. By now everyone knows about RV traveling during Covid.

You have a point but we found that we were overrun with discussions on this topic - they were everywhere on the forum and many of them toxic. Setting up a single place for them has allowed those who don't want to read them at all, to ignore this topic area (there is a tool to do this in the thread tools drop down menu). It also has made it easier to keep an eye on them

I would like to know if this is an advertiser driven decision.
Lightheartedly agree with OB's comment on GVWR threads, however I am ultimately against censorship in any fashion.

Board management choices are not driven by advertisers desires. Advertisers and board sponsors have no editorial control here; the board is independent of any influence in this regard and the site team drives these choices. Each member actually sees different ads - based on your location and often your past internet viewing.
