Hi guys and girls.

We have just passed the 900 registered users mark and that means we are well on track to reaching the magic 1000 mark before our 6 month old birthday. In fact it would be nice to reach 1111 users by then (28 April).

Anyway we know there is something that works here. It's a great community and I want to make sure it stays like that. If you have any ideas to improve things, or if anything that is broke please do let me know. Feel free to post here or PM me at any time.

Thanks

Tony

I must say, being a member of 7 car forums and having run my own for a while (same hosting as this, good choice ;) :) ) this is a very active and well run forum. Regional events or even "local" sections/secretaries within the forum in time would be good to stimulate local activity, also is there any plans for merchandise? t-shirts, fleece's etc? www.scirocconet.co.uk window stickers would be good, something designed for the rear side windows, applied from the inside along the bottom edge would be a subtle way of advertising the forum.

P.S. something that works well on other forums is "ranking" members dependent on post levels, eg. level 1 up to 50 posts, level 2 50-100 posts, level 3 100-300 posts level 4, 300-750 posts level 5, 750+ posts. This could be done as say, newbie, junior member, member, senior member, get a life ( :lol: ) other forums use BHP so 50bhp, 100bhp etc others simply use a star rating 1-5 stars. This encourages members to participate rather than just "surf" threads. Just some thoughts!! ;)

Thanks for the feedback imitebeurda. Rankings is a good idea. Not something I previously thought of. I will get it running in the next few days.

Regional events and forums will have to wait until the site is a little bigger but it is on the cards. As for merchandise I have been looking at stickers and keyrings etc etc but waiting until I have some proper designs done.

Thanks Again

Tony

What happened to your Roc, did it shrink in the wash? :lol:
the wife washed it say no more
:lol: :lol: :lol:
I was thinking the same the other day but got sidetracked, if she washes it again it will probably look like a golf.

Good comments and suggestions by imitebeurda - he took the words right out of my mouth :lol: :lol:

Now in place. These will probably change over time as the forum gets older.

The regional forums will come in due course but not just yet. Good idea for the cleaning forum and will consider adding this shortly.
