Re: Auto Italia Concours - Stanford Hall

Hello chaps.

The way the forum currently works, it's just not viable to give out member cards. The first reason being - why do we need them? It's not like you can use them anywhere, and you're hardly going to walk around flashing them at people - "how you doing?"

It could be argued that giving them to donated members gives them something to show off, but then, some people only donate 1 ... in the space of 5 years.... why would we want to go to the expense of giving them a card.

Only way we're going to start a card issuing system would be if we actually started a "club" up, with subscriptions (and thus dates - so cards can expire etc) ... which is all well and good .... but the same question comes up again ... "why?"

Perhaps this is best kept to another thread (feel free to start one somebody) - but I guess the short of it is - the way the forum/site currently works - membership cards are just going to be un-necessary hassle

Re: Membership card suggestion [split from Stanford thread]

But from a club perspective - what would you actually want?

Re: Membership card suggestion [split from Stanford thread]

I still believe access to all the forums, and technical advice, etc - should be open to all members, donated or not; that is the ethos of this place surely?!

Re: Membership card suggestion [split from Stanford thread]

If 'propper' fiat forum credit card style "member" cards were on sale for even 10 a time, I'd probably still buy one just to say I had one

Exactly - which is why it's hard to see what being a club could bring ....

Anyone who shows the Fiat Forum membership card and places an order with us on the day of the show will get 12.5% discount instead of the usual 10% currently given to members.

Hope to see you there.

Best Regards

SHOP4PARTS TEAM.

Re: Membership card suggestion [split from Stanford thread]

Actually make you feel you 'are part' of the forum not just a casual visitor
