With the recent talk of adding an archive for important and imformative posts and the general dislike of the "Kills Section" I was thinking and here's what I thought up:
#1. Eliminate the Kills Section. It is too full of troll's and too bloated with b.s. Plus, I believe it leads the impression that this site promotes street racing. Keep the "kills" limited to the track and the posts limited to the drag/road racing section. As well, keep this forum heavily moderated to keep out the crap.
#2. As many have mentioned, create an archive section to store important technical posts relating to vehicle maintance and modification. There have been many informative posts that have dissapeared into the forums that, due to posts of similar but less helpfull nature, are nearly impossible to search for.
#3. Create a "technical section" that is limited to only tuning, emitions and computer specific chat. Stuff like ECM information, wiring and electrical chat, wide band and so on. As well, this forum should be heavily moderated to keep out the "whats wide band" and "what happens if I take out the cat" type of posts.
I really would like to see some moderators put into place to, well, moderate the crap. If the kills section is eliminated, wich I think it should be, the b.s. is going to migrate to other sections. It seems like alot of good people here have been getting frustrated with some of hte worthless bantor that has been posted recently. Granted this is a public message forum and people are free to post pretty much what ever they want to but I belive that some of it should be controlled, especially if people are coming here looking for help modifying there vehicle finding loads of conjecture and troll posts bashing our cars rather than usefull information. Moderators, I hope, are going to help keep this to a minimum, just wish they would be picket and put to work.
Any thoughts on my thoughts?
