Default Major navigation changes coming soon

Hi all,

Over the coming days/weeks, myself and the rest of our staff will be helping to tag and migrate every old thread on the forums with a 'make' prefix in the title when it is applicable. These threads, once tagged, will be moved into the forums that live under the "Car Parts and Maintenance" category, the "Apperance" category, or any other forum they fit into that is not under the "Vehicles" heading.

Our thought is that this switch will allow much easier organization of topics and sorting by both applicable make of vehicle and the topic of discussion. As is stands now, there really is not much incentive for the other categories we have on the homepage to be used because a problem I might be having with my Ford Focus's suspension fits every bit as much in the Ford forum as it does in the Suspension forum. We will be removing the brand-specific forums, and adding a few additional discussion areas for more general conversation or brand-agnostic questions.

As of now, the thread tagging system has been turned on - if you start a new thread, selecting a tag prefix will be mandatory. If you have older threads that you are able to add a prefix to, this would help the staff out tremendously as we prepare to migrate into the new structure.

We hope that this will make valuable information a lot easier to track down on the site, and welcome any additional insights you might have.

I have asked several members and most agreed this would be a good plan. As it is, some forums are redundant. We'll be adding manufacturer tags to the Engines/Appearance/etc forums to help keep things better organized
