That's what I thought too. Ex - Fiat drivers can be a worthwhile addition to the forum - alienating them would be a mistake IMO

If that happened it would be no problem - even though I still do not see why it is needed- but what would the controls be to stop it just becoming another car forum, only ex fiat forum members allowed? would be rather small

Re: other members motors

Thanks for the shout I am old but not deaf or blind.

My comment still stands if it is only for ex Fiat owners is it people that have belonged to the forum previously only? Or how is it going to function.

Re: other members motors

Still not sure why you would want it turned off in the User CP and NEW POSTS - in that case, I never venture into ICE or Security sections myself, so can they be an option as well for me?

Re: other members motors

a small section titled non-fiat shouldnt do any harm, at least we can all laugh when they eventually realise that it a huge mistake to step away from fiat

my only really problem is that it would die a death and be pretty empty if only existing members are only going to post in there, but going back to steves post if it gets to big then 'fiat' would be lost

how about create it and review it in 6 months time, may give a better indication then

i also hope that a 'non-fiat' section will not turn out like BB and the cars end up being slated

Thats the problem, people would have to be mature if it was going to work.

It would have to have a policy of constructive criticism like all the other sections.

We wouldnt want every section turning into a fiat vs other make
