Forum History
A few people have requested how the community was started and a little about the history behind vstarforum.com. It got started because of our interest in the V-Star as an alternative to a Harley. There wasn't a community of just V-Star riders out there so we decided to start one. Very humble beginnings, not knowing really what we where doing, got a few spam attacks (hence the old users), and so on. Needless to say, the more we interacted with the very few real members in the beginning, the more traction the community got. We are not by any means a huge community but we definitely have grown. Technically the forum started in April of 2012, got its first member in May of the same year, and has grown ever since. We know it could be much more than what it is but it's hard to spend a lot of time managing the backend, get the name out, etc. You guys are the reason the community exists, we just provided the platform.

Hope that answers some of the questions but if there are any other questions feel free to ask in this thread!

Jason

@zag I guess with that kind of seniority, you can say anything you want and the Mods can't do anything about it. Wink

RE: Forum History
Lmao! Omg thats not what i ment!!!!!! But everyone seems to have a little knight icon next to Rank. Since zag destroyed the bots in the beginning of the forum he should get one too.

Annnndndnnnnnd since youre the boss i figured youd have that control. To knight someone. But i guess not?
