2. Is it run from home or do they have offices.
3. Who are the most known members.

1. Tran is the owner of the site.
2. It is run by a Tran, and a group of moderators. No clue whether or not they have official offices. They do have sponsorship and advertisement deals, so there must be some form of "office" Whether it be a home office or commercial office I personally don't know. (Note, ads are very non intrusive, unlike some other sites.)
3. There are so many!

2. As far as I'm aware, there are no offices. The website is housed on a server (like GoDaddy) and all of the moderators operate from their own computers.

3. Post count doesn't typically dictate who is most well known. Take a look at a person's post count AND join date and you'll probably be able to tell if they're just a post whore or if they've been around a while. Some people are both

2) no offices that I know of. But I havent been initiated yet so

3) there are a lot of well known members. Though I think the most well known member is Balls - that dude was awesome.

I always wondered if Balls was really just a pissed off member with a different account.

  1. Camaro5 is owned and run by Tran, most of the site design & maintenance is done by MarkLS2. They are the administrators of the site.
  2. There is no 'Camaro5 Office'. All staffers (mods & admin) visit the site from either their own home, their place of work, or anywhere else they have access to the internet & time to swing by. About the only physical presence Camaro5 might have is a P.O. box, and even then I'm not sure if we've got one.
  3. Depends on where you go on the site. Lots of people never venture outside of specific sections: regional, off-topic, ZL1, forced induction, cosmetics, etc. So someone could be very well known in one spot and not have a single post elsewhere.

I will start a paypal account for C5 donations if BALLS is reinstated as a full member. And let Aybeck back into the off topic section!

I'll start it with $50!

I wonder if he makes money from this site (except the C5 store) because all the ads are like vendor ads so I wonder if they pay him to advertise on here
