Maybe we can add a “hobby” Section or multiple sections, where we can discuss Sports, Guns, Fishing, Other Vehicles Etc…. Not everyone joins this site just to learn about their trucks, we also are on here to make friendships and BS with each other just like car guys do.
What about a spotted section. People post on here all the time saying “hey I saw an SS, anyone on here? Or they post up SS’s on eBay or Craigslist (good or bad), but these post are sometimes in the off topic, or photo, or other random sections, I think it would be nice to have on place for them all.
I think the How to section needs lots of work. It is full of great information, but half the pictures and links no longer work. Of course this is one of the issues with using sites like photobucket, when you move the pictures or delete them from your account, you also lose them on any post you put them in. There are also lots of people asking questions in the How to Section. I would love to see some new how to topics in this section, but that will require members on this site to create ones.
We can also create a new Popular How to thread, the one in there was last updated in 09 and half the links no longer have the pictures you need to perform the how to. This “popular mod” thread can also have links to other sites that have really go how-2s. Hopefully this might help keep people from asking the same questions over and over again. Maybe we can change the name form how 2 to Walkthrough or something like that. This might help differentiate between the place where you go to ask questions and the place where you can find answers.
I would really like to see more topics pinned. Maybe we can have a frequently asked question post in the technical forums that has links to answers to frequently asked questions, so hopefully we don’t have the same questions asked over and over again.
How about some photo contests. We have truck of the month (every 2 months), but how about a contest let say where everyone post up a picture of your SS next to a Prius, then everyone post up pictures, we vote on the best and the winner gets to pick the topic of the next months contest. I have seen this on other sites and it has been lots of fun.
Maybe we can have cleaning and detailing section where we can discuss different cleaning and detailing supplies, we are all obsessed with keeping your trucks nice and shiny, and this is where we can talk about products and techniques. The Appearance section kind of fits this, but I still think we can have a separate one.
I think it would also be fun to have a member finder, so we can see where other members are located. I know there are people from Oregon on here other than me, there has to be, but IDK who they are.
These are just a few ideas that I have, please feel free to add some more. I love this site and have been a member for over 6 years, but day buy day I have become a little more frustrated with this site, and Im on here less and less, and I know Im not the only one who feels the same way. I would love to see this site return to its former glory.
