I like this section left the way it is. The reason for my thinking this is that this leaves a place for just the admins/mods to pass information along to all the members of the board. Anytime there is a post in this section you know it is something you probably want to read because of policy changes, server stauts', etc... I see "intros" better fitting in somewhere like "general".
Didn't Dave try to move that up in MNBC?? SIlly man.

I think audio and electronics would be out of place. Maybe we should rename it electronics and audio? Cause it just seems like audio only when you look at it now. It'* not "Mechanical or Maintenince", it'* electronics......

Other wise it looks good to me, i'm not sure how well the country will work split up into two zones, but we'll see.

Oh, and lounge posts should count double...
Actually, I agree here. For new members, the current location of intros is not "attention-grabbing", thus we get alot of members who find it later then do so after they've posted quite a bit.

No, No, No, Absoutely No! (Dr. Fate from the movie "The Great Race" if any of you remember that one)

I like to check out the For Sale section, I am interested in parts for my car, not a new car and I wouldn't like to go wading through posts about cars for sale just to see parts for my car. see where i'm comming from?

General:
........Lounge (keep)
........General Chat (keep)
........Your ride (move photo albums up here and delete it from 'Gatherings')
........Kill stories (keep, it'* too popular)
........Performance and General Brainstorming (combining the two)
........(move Audio and Electronics to Mechanical and Maintenance...at the bottom)
........Vendors forum (keep)
........Intros (keep)

Mechanical and Maintenance:
.......GXP/Northstar
.......2000 and Newer
.......92-99
.......87-91
.......Classics (I think we need to keep.....who knows what the future may hold)
.......Other H bodies (I agree with Don. This is a keeper....this forum draws members)
.......Forced Induction (keep for the specific issues of the L67/FI L27/L36)
.......Audio/Electronics (moved from General)
.......Detailing (new forum)

Buy/Sell/Trade
......For sale or Trade (combine cars and parts)
......Wanted (need to keep this.....critical forum for those LOOKING, not selling)

Gatherings:
......Combine photo albums with YOUR RIDE in GENERAL (it'* gone)
......Combine All North America into two forums. Splitting at the Mississippi
......All other Continents
......Regional/National Meets (new forum)

The Site:
.......Suggestions
.......Test

By Combining this way, we shorten the board by 6 forums, and add 2 more, for a net gain of 4. The Detailing and Regional/National Meet forums are added, but the board is still 4 forums shorter, and better organized.

Yes or no? We'll discuss this after member inputs in Staff, and make the final decision. Speak your mind!
Looks great Will!

At this point, with 19 YES votes, zero NO votes, and 4 MOSTLY votes, and the ideas presented, I'll take this back to staff. Continue to post any ideas you may have while this is being considered.

i like your idea will....the only reason i thought putting intro up into annoucements is to get everyone to go in the intro when they join and introduce themselves....itsk inda hidden at the bottom there and not everyone sees it for a while
