other members motors

ok with the other thread going off the rails a a bit , i thought WE should all cast a vote to see how we all feel about having a small section for members to discuss about other cars (they may have or if a friend or member of thier faimly wants soem advice about thier car)

i know this is a fiat forum, but i thhink it is unfair for memebrs who have been loyall to this forum for years, to sell thier car and not been able to find another sutible forum to go onto and discuss problems about their (NEW) car

thanks

rich

Re: other members motors

Sorry voted no. there is nothing stopping anyone showing or talking about their pride and joys in the leisure lounge, or even in the members motors section, but as for having a section to discuss other car problems IMO is going to far and will lose the Fiat Forum 'feel' it will be more like a general car forum, and there are plenty of car clubs around.

The fiat ford honda suzuki vauxhall citroen peugeot renault nissan (you get the picture) forum...for all things fiat ford honda suzuki vauxhall citroen peugeot renault nissan Like mentioned earlier, would weaken the main purpose of the forum taking away the emphasis of Fiats.

yes but you say that, but when posting in the LL the threads and posts just go OFF THE RAILS.

and there are a lot of car clubs that just don't have that many members so you really never get the awsners you are looking for!

i am prity sure that if there where a team of mods (may be around 6-8) keeping any eye on this section then it would MAY JUST WELL WORK, and maybe pepole who continue to post junk threads or posts could be frose from using that section!

thanks

rich

Just to run one section must be expecting a lot of problems

Re: other members motors

If this section was to go ahead, there will NOT be 6-8 mods allocated to it - administrators and supermods will keep an eye on it for starters, I would have thought, and maybe a dedicated moderator if warranted.

Re: other members motors

I voted yes, as long as it is a small section which form what a couple of mods said yesterday would be the case anyway so a simple yes and no poll would have covered it

Re: other members motors

Well, as per the other thread on this same subject, I think another section would be a good idea - we have a few key members now who own non-FIATs.

Re: other members motors

i dont want to sound like an ass, but there will be better forums to discuss your motors on, i.e more specific ones

thinking of it, a small section wouldnt do any harm , i was thinking more along the lines of members just wanting to show them off, but there is no where to discuss them other than lesuire lounge which they may get lost in
