Site Suggestions?

Anything in particular you'd like to see covered here? Any upgrades, rants, raves, etc?

The colors, graphics, and layout look really good (except the blue buttons don't go so well with the green color scheme)...it's hard to believe you've been up for such a short time. Do you administer other Boards? I'm gonna guess yes. Obviously there will be more Forums as the Board grows but in the meantime I don't see anything I would change until you get more members/threads/posts.

Thumbs up

I've got a section suggestion!

A area for "performance mods ONLY"
A place for discussion and another to record list of mods and TRACK SLIP INFO, not the chessy gtech windsheild thingy.

This should be a section for gear heads and not pimp daddys calling wheels and grills mods.

Just my .02

I think there would need to be seperate Forums for Northstar Performance and Non-Northstar Performance.

Thx for the kind words! Yah, I admin these forums and a couple of others. I'm working on the buttons as we speak, but I'm not sure what color would look better. I was thinking grey, but dont know if another color might stand out better? Even tan perhaps? any ideas? B7 is really nice, I was amazed at the features and how far they've come since 2.X -- I dont think I could build a "new" site in 2.X anymore, not after seeing the new stuff

How about a forum for track results, and we can have a sticky thread with nothing but the fastest ET's -- I need someone to "run" the list tho. Check for updates in the thread, and keep the order the same. Are you wanting to volunteer?

I like the Track Results forum idea.

If there is to be much traffic here, there has to be places for cars more common than XLR and CTSV. There could be forums by engine type (500/472/425/368, 4100 (hah), 4.5 & 4.9 or something like that) or by car type (Fleetwood, DeVille, Eldo, etc.).

I dont want to create competition for the regular Caddy forums, I dont want this site to be the "caddy place" I would rather have it specialize in performance... Do you think this is feasable?

Probably based on engine would be better, I would think.

I'm open to more suggestions.

BTW, I just changed the button, these look better, but I think they can be improved even more. Anybody have any color suggestions?

MMMMM, sure, (i guess) my only problem with committing to something is time because of what I do for a living (Real Estate) but somedays are busier than others.

I'd be glad to help out but i'm not very computer tech savey i'll do the best I can.

If it's a track/performance area only i'd be glad to help.

Thanks.

Okay, I'm going to start a section for track times. What we'll do is make a single thread thats sticky so its always on top. People will post their track results in this thread, with timeslip, video, etc. You can then update the first post by "editing" it - and you always keep this first post updated with the times, for example:

1. Joe Blow - [email protected] - 19XX STS - Radial Tires - NOS
2. Mike Anon - [email protected] - 19XX STS - Radial Tires - N/A

Etc. And we'll keep track of the fastest Cadillacs in the world in that thread.

Sound like a plan?
