PostSubject: SITE UPDATE - EVERYBODY PLEASE READ   30th October 2009, 09:48

Firstly, thank you all for all your amazing efforts getting us off the ground. We really seem to be racking up the posts, we're on all the search engines, in Modern Mini and getting sponsors. It's really going well!!

However we think it's time that we bring a bit more order to the forums. We have always welcomed banter on pretty much every thread (often we are more guilty than most!) and we don't want this to change, but any banter really should be in context of the thread and the discussion/theme of the thread still needs to come through or else all threads end up the same way and in a bit of a mess.

So James, Moley and Dave are going to have to become a bit stricter with posts in normal forums. Any banter that is off topic and unrelated to the thread will be deleted. We really want the site to continue growing, attract new members and keep current members happy. We feel we have to take these steps to keep things going in the right direction.

Of course, in the banter forum, feel free to go nuts!! But again, if there's a theme to the banter thread we should try and keep to it unless it's a general 'banter in here' thread.!!

The only place we ask to be totally banter free is the sponsor forums.

We hope this all comes across in the right way and you all understand why we're making these small changes. Please direct any questions to James, Moley or Dave.

Thanks guys.

Thanks guys, I think we all need to have a bit of self control.......what I mean is that I need a bit of self control with my banter! Suspect

If anyone has any problems with this at all, we have always said that this is a members site, not our site so please voice your opinions Smile

Love

Your friendly neighbourhood Moley rock

And we should like to stress we are only doing this to ensure the future success of the club. We need everyone to feel welcome, the information we're building needs to be easy to find, and we want to attract new sponsors and members.

Please believe us when we say nothing will change, we just need to keep the place tidy! Smile

Thanks,

James.

Thanks Dawn.

We don't want it to stop either, we just want it in the right place and not spread through most threads that's all! Very Happy

Anyway to filter out the banter from the "New posts" section like you can on TM? No offence intended, just find it a bit overwhelming sometimes :p

Off the top of my head I don't think so, You can 'follow' threads and they appear under a link in your profile if there's new posts. I'll look into it though for you Alex.

The only thing I can think of without asking forumotion, is we can remove you from the banter and games forums. The only thing is then you wont be able to see them at all, they wont be on your homepage at all. I will ask the question with forumotion though.

If you want this let me know, I can always put you back in any time.

Thanks,

James.

James, don't worry about it, it doesn't bother me that much Laughing Was just wondering if it was an option, not something I'd want you to go out of the way to do though!

Ok, no probs.

Don't worry yourself Dave, nothing will change! If Alex didn't want to see the banter, we can just change his profile so he doesn't have privileges to see it, everyone else will be exactly the same. Smile

Not that I'm rising to the bait you understand but the banter isn't going, it's just being contained in the correct threads! Razz Neer Neer
