An Update On The Updates


Firstly, I'd like to introduce our latest moderator to be added to the team, Steed, who will be our Workshop Manager. This has come about after seeing the fantastic help he gives to our members, and always has an answer in his mind for whatever questions asked to do with Maintenance and Technical problems and queries. So welcome Steed, it's good to have you on the team!


Secondly, I have sat down thismorning and had a fiddle with the forum layout, and I have added/removed sections to tidy up and be useful.

Aside from general tidying up with posts etc... (which I won't bore you with), I have done the following:

  • Added 'The Workshop' which now holds all maintenance and technical subforums, including custom work and repairs.
  • Altered the Classifieds section with direct links to eBay, Gumtree and AutoTrader to help those looking for a Paseo.
  • Merged the 'Funny Bone' section with the Relax Room to de-clutter the main forum view.
  • Custom, Project Blog and Mechanical builds have been merged into the Modifications Board
  • New 'Club House' section is to house all of the clubs discussions (namely for these posts appearing on the portal and suggestions for now. In time this will house club merchandise such as decals, leaflets etc..

For now this is as far as I have gone, and I'm sure I will rework more in time. Please feel free to add your comments on the new change.

Website/Forum Update

Right then all,

Apologies for the absence lately, I recently started two new jobs and one of which is a whole new sector for me - so trying to take that in is keeping my mind far too occupied. Now I have my holiday out of the way and I am in full swing of things, I can now start tinkering with this site again.

Just to keep you all in the picture I have a full head of ideas and changes to be made to the forum following a few comments previously made. One of which will be de-cluttering the forum layout and removing/renaming/adding sections and sub forums, once I have tried and tested them.

Also now that our tech guru Dan has finished his uni degree in Web development (forgive me if I'm wrong on that Dan, I don't fully understand it myself) with a top notch degree (congratulations) he will soon be free for an evening of alcohol fueled tinkering behind the scenes to get the wiki site atleast ready for me to add to. This means we should be raring to go within the next few months as soon as I have everything together how I'd like it.

Now, I want your input on this guys. We are all like minded, yet different, people. I'd like you all to pitch in with what you'd like to see from the site, what you find helpful and what you'd like to lose from its current structure. My aim for this site isn't to be pointed towards us enthusiasts looking to modify, but actually aimed more so at gaining a range of ages and owners from even overseas. You may have found, like I have, that there's a strong ownership group that are about middle age. So I'd like alot to respect this and make this a place for everyone to come to.

All your thoughts on a postcard guys, as if it wasn't for you, we wouldn't be where we are now, and you'll be a big part of the forward movement over the coming months.

Thanks for your time in reading this, and I look forward to your input.

Sam.
