Why is there a second forum?

A couple of days ago i found this forum. I wonder why there are now 2 of the same subject fora? Is it not better to keep all the info on one place?
I see a lot of the same members so i am curious why :blush:
Thx!

This is the real forum. Pay no attention to the knockoff

The other forum used to be the #1 forum, but the owner Enertion totally mishandled valid customer complaints over their faulty products, and banned prominent and respected regulars for their honest views.

Those very people then led an exodus here to esk8.news forum, where the community funds the forum so no vendor-based censorship will ever take place.

Welcome, and I hope you stick around and help us become even better.

Honestly most enthusiast groups have more than one community/fourm.
As esk8 grows I wouldn’t be surprised if there was a emtb /offroad esk8 forum.
Or even just a SoCal esk8 forum ( or other locations, just an easy example)

We refer to the “other forum” as the old forum, this place is where the cool kids are :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

For real though this forum has all the most hardcore builders from the old one, we (lord @longhairedboy) started this one to combat some weird censorship, as others have mentioned. Stay here, we don’t bite :slight_smile:

Oh ok, thx for clearing things up. If that is the case then sure i will stay here. Censorship is a no go for sure :blush: I had a feeling it had something to do with enertion because of some threads where People were complaining.
It has been a while but i sold my first build and started a second build from scratch. This is why i came back to the forum to search what the new things were on the market and especially i needed all the info to build my own 12s4p pack. :blush:

Great to hear. There’s a ton of really experienced guys to help out, so I’m sure you’ll find the info you need and any assistance you might require.

Let me know if you need anything.

Welcome to the cool corner. Community funded and fueled by dick jokes and pure builds of testosterone.

Actually he started it as an discussion supplement for the news site :smiley: The Exodus was only on Enertions hands.

Ah tbh I guess I missed it being started before the exodus

It was just Damon and his fully-shaved ferret before the exodus.

They’ve been scrubbing my PMs and changing the text that refers to this forum.

That’s how you know it’s legit.

All the most respected members have come here, and it’s community funded, so if it helps you, there is a donate link at the top :slight_smile:

This keeps it neutral, ad-free, malware-free, censorship-free, and allows us to focus on building electric skateboards, electric longboards, electric mountainboards, and Onewheel clones, collectively “esk8”

(but not electric unicycles)

@longhairedboy is the king here instead of Enertion Boards Pty Ltd
