This is a trial run of a potential new chatboard for members. My son, Tom has put it together for me and included items we thought relevent. If you can 'trial' it then let myself Tom or Janet know your thoughts/opinions. - You can leave your comments on this board if its easier
The various sections are self explanatory and will expand with use.
Pictures can also be included - you need to send your picture to your host provider and URL via this site. I have included a sample for you to look at.
I don't understand why we think we need a change? I do like the current system as it seems to work better than any others i have used in other clubs. It is the fact that all subject are there that stimulates more comment. I know it is difficult to find a particular subject, however if this system fragments subjects (?)I fear we will lose input?
As we are all well aware on the old site, finding something that you can remember being discussed but cannot remember the date, using the "Search" facility is a hit and miss affair, very often because a keyword is missing. In view of this, is there any possibility that under the general heading of "Technical" there could be sub-headings which would cover say Engine, Brakes, Electrical, Gearbox, Transmission, etc. this would help in finding the precise subject you require? To a lesser extent "Interiors" could also be broken down to more sub-headings, again to compartmentalise, and make it easier to search. I realise it would take a new discipline to be effective, but I'm sure all our intelligent members would look before they leap. Especially as it would benefit them in the long run.
