My Forum change recommendations

Just some thought I've had after being on the board for a couple weeks.

Add a new "Site News & Information" forum in it's own section at the top. Any new developments for the site as well as general rules and maybe some FAQs go here. Generally only moderators will have access to post in this forum.

Combine "The 3 in the News" and "Consumer Reviews" into one forum.

Combine "Release / Pricing" & "Models / Trim"

Combine "Suspension / Brakes" and "Wheels / Tires"

Combine "Lighting" with "Exterior Modifications"

Combine "Dyno Results" and "Autocross and Track Racing" into a global "speed" forum.

Combine "Interior Modifications" & "Electronics Discussion"

Rename "Show and Shine" to "Maintenance & Care"

Add a new "Do it Yourself" forum for people who do their own modifications, have people submit how-to's on anything from a new intake to a new stereo to whatever.

Combine all the "Media" forums.

Combine all the "Other Mazdas and Cars" forums.

Create new forums as demand increases.

Something like this will be coming when I'm able to deploy the new software I've been working on.

I'm not so sure I'd want to do this... there's a decent number of posts in both sections. If anything, I'd be more inclined to combine Consumer Reviews and I just got my 3

Quote:

Definitely something for me to think on, although I can see a solid difference between the two. Actually the one I'm more concerned with is what to do with Interior Modifications, as you've addressed below.

Mazda6Club has it as a Dyno & Track section, yeah. I thought people would appreciate them being seperate. But we'll see.

Quote:

Maybe

Quote:

Yes.

Quote:

Yeah, a possibility, only because for example, pics of other cars tend to go in... Other Cars.

Quote:

Other Cars and Other Mazdas will not be combined, but combining Protege/Rotary/Other Mazdas is a possibility.




So, anyone else have any comments on the above?

I agree with this-it's a good idea

I don't know that I agree with this, reason being if someone installs a new stereo it could go in either electronics or do it yourself, creates confusion. I'm a little iffy on this though, it might be a good idea.

Definitely not. Mazdas need to remain separate, like Dan said.

Really but where do you draw the line? IMO I'm more interested in other non-mazda C1 based vehicles (Focus C-MAX, Volvo S40/V50, Euro 2005 Focus) than the RX-8, the 6 is only of interest cause of the shared engine.

It seems (to me) that this is a Mazda3 board and anything else is outside the main focus.

They are but mazdas are special . So they get their own section. It's true they are outside the main focus, but like you said "the 6 is only of interest cause of the shared engine." It's easier to find that type of discussion if mazdas have their own section.

Having a C1 section isn't a bad idea. That isn't what you said though

It can be added when the website is up.
