Exclamation Can you guys think of a better way to...

... organize the forums?

What I mean by this is in terms of layout.

Do you feel that certain sections no longer need to be there and some need to be added?

We want to change things up a little here to make it easier for everyone to find what they need. Give us some feedback on the matter and let us know what you think would be the best.

Thanks

I'd say we could add a Truck (as in semi) section to the "Vehicles" section. Maybe also a snowmobile/atv/dirt bike forum all in one, but leave it at that. We don't want TOO many.

What about the current sections? Too many?

Do we need to reduce/better organize them?

With the current amount of activity I really think the sub-forums for American Cars, Asian Cars and European Cars could be removed entirely but at the same time I don't think that would be specific enough. Though at the very least all the Subsidiaries of the companies should be merged. Like Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep should be merged, along with Chevy, Buick, Cadillac and GMC. Etc.

Bring Chevy, GMC, Pontiac, Cadillac, Buick, Hummer, and Saturn into a single GM forum. Then Dodge, Chrysler and Jeep into a single Daimler Chrysler forum, then Ford, Lincoln, and Mercury into a FoMoCo (Ford Motor Company) forum.

EDIT: You could also bring Honda/Acura together, as well as Toyota/Scion.

Audi/Volkswagen as well

I believe that certain models should just fall into the general (American/European/etc.)

EDIT:

Cleaned-up the European car section. Let me know what you think of it

Not bad. Should Volvo be moved to american though? They're a subsidary of Ford.

No, I think we leave the vehicles where they are built, Volvo is still considered a European import even if the parent company is an American one
