Creating ANOTHER mustang board? <UPDATED PG 4)


#1

dumb idea or no? mustangforums is up for sale, already way over-run with ads - no tech articles, etc. IF, and a big IF we (yes I said we, because it would be a forum created and tailored to those of us over here who came from mustangforums). I wouldn’t do something unless I thought it would be the ABSOLUTE BEST ANYWHERE, and I wouldn’t do it unless I thought it would be popular. So, here are my thoughts.

I myself frequent a half dozen different mustang sites. Why? well because I like chatting at MF, but when I need tech advice for myself (which happens quite a bit - I don’t ask questions on MF or answer posts I know nothing about because I try to maintain a certain “image” over there. So when I want tech advice I go elsewhere, and each of the other forums I visit offer something different I can use… they all have different atmospheres and different features I like and dislike. Who knows what will happen to MF once its bought out… MORE ADS? who knows.

MY IDEAL MUSTANG FORUM:

  1. A positive attitue, always (like MF)
  2. off topic posts filtered out into Offtopicz, and tech related stuff linked over to the mustang site (only need to login at 1 place for both). There wont be anything like tokenz or anything like that over there.
  3. Tech articles and how-to’s written by our members
  4. A personal member page for you and your car (like car-domain)
  5. A timeslip database (automated with ranks, etc.)
  6. THE most popular mustang site on the internet (may take a couple years but this is a MUST).
  7. ABSOLUTELY NO ADS!

What do you think? Honest opinions, post up the good, bad, or ugly.

Good idea… But that means you need to have alot of tech articles written up for how-to’s. I am up for it. I think it will be good.

What about just buying Mustangforums? Then taking the ads away and recreating everything? Alot of people already go there and it might be easier to build it.

  7. ABSOLUTELY NO ADS!

  8. Not everyone is going to have a positive attitude. I try to bring a little bit of reality to MF, and I get called out like crazy by the n00bs.

  9. Good Idea.

  10. I always enjoy reading first hand experiences with How-to’s and tech articles from members who have been there and done that.

  11. Even more so, I love reading about other peoples cars. You get good ideas that way.

  12. I need to run at the track.

  13. werd… does this mean I can’t come? :dunno

  14. Ads aren’t bad at all, the problem is that the page is slowed down by massive ads that are all over.

Ads STILL serve a purpose, they are great for linking to vendors and services mustang owners will want to use. I say use some ads, but don’t let it take over the main page like it has MF.com.

For one thing, joe told me that MF probably makes close to few hundred a month with all of their sponsers and it is probably worth 18 months its revenu… So, that idea is out. Besides he doesnt want it to be anything like mustangforums. He wants it to be BETTER than mustangforums…

He wants to have a HOW TO area and car pages for members, ect. :slight_smile:

If everyone thinks its a good idea, then he will do it.

Ok JOE go for it make it better then MF ever was and 2000 i agree with what you said about the Newbies on MF they got way to many KNOW IT ALLS over there … and its really getting boring there are way to many ASS HOLES over there :dunno :dunno

With a large member base they’ll always be assholes and folks with strong opinions. Im mostly “referring” to the other mustang sites and the top members on those telling people that they don’t deserve to own a mustang because they didn’t know what an h-pipe is or calling people noobs because they ask a simple question.

They’ll certainly be an “Other Vehicles” section, no doubt so don’t sweat that SI - besides we’re gonna need someone to participate in all the “I spanked a Honda” threads!

Bottom line is theirs been an influx and a fook ton of dumbasses making Mustang sites over the last couple months, and I’m not prepared to open a board that sits around with nothing going on like those places. I’m concerned about that.

Anybody else?? What do yall think?


#20

RE: Creating ANOTHER mustang board?

SHIT… i’m down for the crown… i think it would be slow in the begining, but it would definitly pick up. i like the idea of linking the two sites together, one for car related info, and the other for off topic shit… there are alot of other :gay ass mustang sites, but they don’t have the coolest people in the world running it.
:cool :cool :rock :rock

a name that stands out and sounds cool would help too…

you have my vote.
