What can we do to help the gen3 section?

Gen3 owners.. don't have much to go off of here. There's little to no information as most people that are active on here are gen1 owners, and gen3 owners don't seem to stick around, I assume due to lack of support all around.

Anyone got any ideas?

We seem to be a general forum with mainly maintenance things rather than mods.

If we have some mod how tos then they might be more interested.

We can start off by linking manufacturer installation instructions in a thread and then maybe going through stickies in other forums to see if we can add to our general data base

Give it time, I guess not that many enthusiasts have adopted it yet (no mazdaspeed version, didn't have manuals initially, etc). I have seen some really nicely modified Gen3s on forums up here in canada, but the local forums are bigger and often more useful (due to local relevant advice, french, etc) than this one.

Fixing the forum skin so that this place doesn't look like a 1998 reject forum might also help. If you look at the competing forums they look infinitely nicer than here. Even some minor tweaks would go a long way. If we have access to that stuff I would do it.

M3R has a very active gen3 crowd, I guess there will just be a slow but sure transition somewhere at some point if this forum keeps slowing down (despite record signups over the past few years).

Balik (what's your real name anyway??) I like your last suggestion for sure.

What about the forum is ugly if you don't mind me asking? The colours the layout? Also what can I do to help with the content you're looking for?

It just looks primitive compared to other forums like msf and m3r

I don't mind the appearance to be honest, the default vB is easy to use. MSF to me is quite ugly, m3r is cheesy. This may be boring.

I think if we dropped the blues and made it all gray that would be nice?

I still wish we had the ability to tag users to grab attention, as that is just beyond useful.

Some examples:
New posts: No new posts:

All the colors/headers are very bland. Logo could use some color or pictures of mz3s...

If you want good examples of what the competition looks like, here are my local mazda forums. Both are very active. TM3 gets tons of traffic, and M3Q even has hundreds of people who actually PAID for their forum memberships:

Quebec is pretty hideous IMO, I do like Toronto, it's a bit to much color for me though.

I just like clean and simple really.. I feel like to many forums have a lot of clutter (which.. most of them do..)
