Would have thought the Grande was Gen 4 and the 2B was Gen 3 with it still been a production model. The classic Punto is essentially the MK3 with the Grande been Mk4

Re: Punto Confusion

Nah, the Grande is definitely the G3 - I can find enough press releases about that The 2b was just a facelift of a 2.

FIAT press releases also confirm the Evo is the successor to the GP - making it a 4 - and the 2012 is next, so it has to be a 5.

Actually for what I'm trying to acheive at the moment, this doesn't matter too much - nothing else needs to be renamed - and if we find this elusive g5 in the future, it's just one mis-named url

Punto /punto (mk1, mk2, mk2b)
Grande Punto /grande-punto (mk3)
Punto Evo /punto-evo (mk4)
Punto 2012 /punto-v (mk5)

Next year, when the 2012 is established - we can rename it to just "Punto" and the Punto forum will become the Punto (Classic)

Re: Punto Confusion

In the mean time everyone with a grande can continue to post in the wrong section, seeing as grande is no where near the other punto forums !?

And mods can continue to move the threads as long as someone tells them it's in the wrong place.

But a Grande begins with G - which people will see before P.

It used to be the other way around (Punto Grande) - but everyone complained they couldn't find it! 11k threads can't be too wrong...

Also updated the forum descriptions with the MK numbers, so it's a bit more obvious

Re: Punto Confusion

If the forums were all together it wouldn't be as much of an issue

It's not called a Punto Grande though, it's called a Grande Punto. You're name isn't Kett Andy, it's Andy Kett.

Re: Punto Confusion

It is of the punto family!

People seem to continuously scroll down list to punto see 1993 - present and post in that forum as the only other (visible) option (when scrolled to that part of the page) is evo

That what follows is "my 2007 punto doesn't work" generally followed by a "try posting in the right section then!!!!" inevitably they don't eventually the post gets moved but the new member has had a bad experience and doesn't come back

They are all fiat puntos in one way or another and if it was a stupid idea to put all the forums together in the listings then I would drop it but it really isn't a stupid idea! It would make the forum look neater and not like everything is just thown in at the will of the forum software as previously stated you should be able to reorder without renaming PhpBB was able to do this 8 years ago!

I really can't see why it's such a crap idea

Re: Punto Confusion

Ok, just to shut you up ( ) - I've done what we do with the Scudo, and made a redirect forum - so it now appears in the list where you want it, but just redirects to the normal Grande forum

Re: Punto Confusion

Huh? Grande Punto is where it always was - now there is also a Punto Grande which is just a mirror of Grande Punto.

As you can see though, when you mirror a forum, the mirrored one doesn't list the post count - this is something I will have to work on.

My logic is though, if someone scrolls to GP - they will either click it regardless (and be taken to the posts) - or keep going and find it in Punto.

If we notice the post count down - we simply swap them around

Re: Punto Confusion

I look forward to someone posting in the wrong section almost immediately and proving me to be entirely wrong

I think when you were creating the mirror and they both appeared as "Punto Grande" Which was while the orignal Grande was been renamed.. The forum went Croma to Linea.

Its reappeared now anyway and theres only one Punto Grande section whereas 2 appeared on my screen.. But thats solved now


Thanks ben thanked for this post

No ones saying it never happens, I'm saying most 99% of people post in the right area.

Same with the blogs - people still manage to post their threads in there
