I'll get Neeny's post put in the "Welcome to Tuning" sticky - and this is what I will follow for threads in the tuning forum, as well as what the mods will follow for deciding what prefix is used in the models section
well you better check it for spelling and grammar first.

um because you would be searching in the model section
otherwise you would be searching in the tuning section. wasnt that your whole issue at the start?

that's how we wanted it but bed did it back to front

ive spoken to some of the leaders in panda tuning and they have told me a general tuning section would have helped them no end when they was the first to do things on a panda, save them hours of searching multi sections

Well hopefully Ben puts the prefixes in when he gets the time. And give a little time and help i'm sure all the moderators will have there prefixes sorted in they're sections so that it doesn't look as confusing as it does now.

Dave you of all people know that when a new section is created it doesn't look like every other section over night it takes time. So hopefully everyone will give the staff the time and help it will take to get this section up to scratch and i just hope that it's worth all the effort and upset it has caused.

then a mod comes on and says we dont want them in it, so now we dont know if we are being asked or told what our tuning section is going to be for, as for the work that's bens fault, we wanted it the other way around threads in tuning section prefixed to model if people wanted their thread to show in their model section.
he said there wouldn't be room, but auction watch could have gone to make way for it.

it would make life easier if people who voted no to a tuning section now stayed out of this thread let ben talk to them that wanted it, sort out how its going to work then when he has done that he can explain to the rest of his staff what to do, to get it right its going to take more than a few days as everyone who voted for it isn't on line every day.

Re: Tuning & Modifiying section - Poll.

Ok, I've gone through all the forums without mods and set the tuning prefixes accordingly - the other sections will be done as and when the mods get online

As for the reverse prefixes, it's counter intuitive - most users who come on here go straight to their model section and post. So this way around is the better way. It makes searching slightly more cumbersome (you need to do it from the advanced search box) - but that's the only limitation

Dave please stop nit picking every little thing that's said, it's getting tiresome.

After a few tries i'm sure Ben will get working in a way that suits everyone.

And as for it taking days to find out what tunning is took me approximately 5 mins and a google search to find out the specifics of tunning which helped.

It's not just moderators that are here to help normal members can too. So instead of just criticizing what everyone says try being helpful. it takes less muscles to smile than frown you know

I have good news - I've found a way!

I've got to go to bed soon, so not sure if it will be done today - but I can see how it should be done

Re: Tuning & Modifiying section - Poll.

And done.

"Search this Forum" - now searches the Tuning forum PLUS all the model forum threads which are tagged with the Tuning prefix.
Thanks grimwau, neeny09 thanked for this post

its the mods who was picking holes in my ideas and suggestions

i didn't say it would take days to find out what tuning is, i said it would take days to get a fair opinion from people who are not on every day, to see what they would like to see in their tuning section.

Not to go off topic - but why would they be doing that? All they needed to do was a forum search against the Tuning prefix.

Anyway, everyone's got what they want now - so show me this was all worth it and start filling the new section up!

they started before prefix, then some stuff is under wrong prefix and some of it in mm,

a guide to get the best from search would help too, ive tried things people have said in the past for getting a group of words together but they have never worked, end up with 1000 results none fitting what i was looking for, a lot of members are good with spanners but not with a pc. and there are a lot who have less of a clue than me as has been pointed out before.

Not quite but its deffinately a good start, thank you Ben.


Many FF members have found it necessary to source/supply tuning info on other forums, if the new tuning forum can convince FF members it doesn't have the bad atitude towards tuning anymore and to stop posting in other forums(this one for example http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/tuning-and-upgrades) and to use the FF tuning forum instead I'm sure the rewards would benefit everyone here, MODs and normal members alike. Please lets make this work, if we can achieve half what the Alfa forum has thats Fiat related I'll be impressed, the info it contains is brilliant. Come on guys, put the petty squabbles aside now and pull together to better the forum for us all.

Re: Tuning & Modifiying section - Poll.

Jolly good - so let's get this locked up for now.

If we need to adjust anything in the future, we can get a new thread started up.

nJoy.
