ok now that everyone has had time to play around with the new forum and layout i wanted to get everyone elses opinion of their throghts/complaints/concerns etc.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

me personally:

At first i liked the new layout, it looked nice, smooth, and well organized. it really sucked the shoutbox was gone and replaced with chat(that was limited to 5 people), but it worked and was decent.

 

now....i hate this new layout. it is bland and everything is a shade of blue. i hate the chat, it is pointless and is never used. the status updates are pointless, thats why we have a random thought thread.

 

with the old layout i felt like i was actually interacting with people. this new layout makes me feel like i just sit around and wait for a computer to post a response to me. it is junk tbo.

 

this new style was like an asian hooker...the overnight sensation was fun and times were good. but now that morning has come its time to go.

 

 

 

i would like to get eveyone elses opinions and such on how they feel now that its been a few months

i came, voted, farted.

 

Edit: aside from being an ass, yes, i completely agree with david, with the shoutbox you actually got to talk with the people on here and get to know them so much better, i came around everyday, nobody uses the chat, its pointless. Bring the shoutbox back and this forum will get going again like it used to.

That status thing is gay as sh*t. It's like Facebook with down syndrome. To make the forums better I think more liberties need to be implemented. Such as removing the childish word filter and being able to post whatever in the offtopic forums.

Well I was never rly around when the old style was here I remember a little bit and I do remember when it changed but again cant rly put my oppinion or vote. This site is alot slower than most I visit but I kinda like it at the same time thats its a small community you get a response quick if I have a question and don't get harassed if its a noob question. I visit clubeg6 alot takes forever to get a response from anything and ppl are just plan jerks. But the site could use a few things to make it a little more fun.

I'm there with you on that dude. Well, I think being able to post whatever in the offtopic forums may go a bit far, some sort of leniency wouldn't go a miss I guess. Some kinda regs only section would be good for that kinda thing, but then again, if that happened, the rest of the forum would fail even more so, it would kill the rest of it.

 

But I'm especially with you on the swearing, to make my thoughts on this clear, I shall pass you on to Stephen Fry; he couldn't say it any better.

The constable in the skit at the end is a much younger House.

 

I agree with Seb and Chris. A language filter isn't necessary and I don't mind the idea of the general section being a free-for-all. Bottom line is though, this isn't our site so it isn't our rules.

not really. there are always people that are willing to conform to any given set of rules.

Do you really want a bunch of sheep on the site? Speed is right, this is OUR site. Just like this is OUR country. We are a part of it and help it grow. Baaaahhh...

Not what I meant. I meant that we are expendable and replaceable in regards to forum users. Drew, if he ever logs in, can set any rules he wants to. The people that don't want to conform will complain and eventually quit or conform. And new users that are agreeable to the rules will continue to join. The forum may slow down but it would be tough for it to die out completely.

 

I am fully of the opinion that new moderators that are more regular users of the site need to be appointed and given more advanced moderation capabilities. Not that there was anything wrong with the old mods, they have just moved on with their life and do not/are not spending the time on this forum to properly support it.

 

Strong, involved leadership always drives traffic in a web forum.

the mods don't suck, they do what they're here to do. It's not their job to post up on here or be on here daily... Can't blame em if they don't wanna keep an eye on the place constantly! Javy & Colter certainly do more than enough. :). Spam is always dealt with, and idiots are booted when needs be (after sufficient lols are had, of course), can't complain with that Velo.

and i suck because....

It seems like you're never on nor partake in the opinions of the forum anymore. Such as the things I bitch about most. If you even know what those items are, I'll be impressed.

As far as forums do, they do. You must not be on other forums. Mods handling spam is always a last resort. Bots shouldnt be getting through the process of membership long enough to post stuff. There's an outbreak here and there and they do seem to clean up (who would attack this place?). More mod presence is always needed on forums. Not posting often because it's a slow forum is one thing, but not posting because they don't give a f*ck is another.

I havent been on because I just moved and started doing research for grad school. If you would like me to show the list of pages and pages of threads i have closed and spam bots i have banned I can do that.

 

I'm sorry youre upset about not being able to post porn on here, but this is a car enthusiast site. 97 percent of the internet is porn anyways so its fine that this one isnt full of it.

 

I do agree with you guys with having a regs section or an anything goes section, but that is not my decision, its up to Drew. It's his site, his rules.

 

As far as posting... you have 1,000 i have 11,000. Seems like my posting is enough around here...

Velocifero, I am on other forums so kindly shut up. protection to stop bots joining was put on like a year or two ago... There is not an ''outbreak' here, theres probably about 1 or 2 phone ad's every week or 2. and airjordan is right about the rest of the net being porn, I'm really not bothered, as are most other regs, about not being able to post some jiggling tits in a gif. Go on youporn if your that desperate.

 

more mod presence ain't needed, this place does alright, some more regs wouldn't go a miss though.

More like, what have you done for us lately kinda thing. Don't care about porn, but straight guys like posting hot chicks. And I mainly meant the word filter more than anything. It's fracking gay as crap and I fracking hate it. frack the fracking word filter. frack!!!! Still, you mods are straight boring. Post moar.

 

Let's be honest, many threads aren't about cars here. It's probably almost 50/50. We all have lives and different interests and when you put a bunch of guys together, they usually like talking about cars, beer, sports, and sex, especially with the females on this board. Talking about cars 24/7 would be so boring and you know it. We arent on this forum just for cars, we like each others company too and if we aren't able to express this freely, then it's more like a dictatorship.

I'm not saying I want porn you idiots. Of course I know where to find that. It's the nice, rare, beautiful women not easily found online, but shared between friends. Those gems are worth posting sometimes. I mean, if you're into women that is...
