I was wondering what was going on with the chat lounge. I always went there for the news since I got banned a few years ago.

same here... i just went there every couple of months to check what the rcbot posted in the latest news section.

i think he is too busy playing with legos to run the site anymore.

he has said that the lego side of what he does is far larger than the rc side.


things have gotten a little weird with URC from time to time ever since he stopped making videos. he said he got "burned out" but it seems more like he's become "bi-polar"


I dont know what it's like to run a site that size by yourself, but I think he really needs moderators.

To my knowledge, there were a few threads that were getting waaay off topic and people weren't entirely behaving themselves. We'll see.

Does anyone know what actually happened?

I find it interesting that he gets irritated and shuts down the whole forum. Why not just ban guilty parties?

he has been banning them. he's just one guy though, so he can't keep up with all the separate forums he has going.

One of the threads which really caused it (imo) was a thread about the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge where the discussion got really ugly really fast.

Stinks that it shut down for people that were in the middle of a sale on the URC classifieds, can't get access to private messages or anything

I think one of the things Jang fails to realize is that the less presence admins or mods have on a forum, the harder it is to regulate them. I think that's why it seems to me like he flips out once in awhile, he tries to step back from being on there all the time, but he still has to be on there all the time because he's the only mod.

Jang is ok, I liked his vids, he has control issues though. You have to get mods onboard otherwise it becomes a hard job.

I wouldn't expect the forums to come back anytime soon over there. Likely not until the end of this month, or mid-next month.

Well, I'll be posting and reading a lot more over here now!

Kind of pitty as it's my go to forum and I have a lot of personal threads going there, but oh well.

It is a lofty goal to try and keep things friendly and they always seem to be reasonably so.

In general I'm always surprised at how emotionally engaged Jang is as he seems like I a pretty centered person otherwise.. of course it's hard to appreciate the amount of stuff he is exposed to on a daily basis.
