Default Year and Model

Hiya all...

Quick thing I've noticed. When we ask for year and "trim level" many people are unsure about "trim level" .

I've started asking for people to go into the signature area of their profile and add the year and model.

Seems to be working well. Just a thought.

From the sticky at the top of Introduction of New Members folder...

http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...pic.php?t=4756

"...Please also take this opportunity to click on the PROFILE link and fill out your signature with your year and trim level (LE, SE, SSE, SLE, SSEi, GXP). Here'* the link (it'll open in a new window): http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...de=editprofile or you can click on profile in the top right corner of every page here. "

Unfortunately, they forget or don't read or don't have time to do this... i also explain to them (nicely) when i see it occur...

I think as long as its in the Sig or Av. its good, cuz i know what you mean, you try to help someone but they forget to post there model and trim and you can do anything till they get back online.

Whoaaaa guys..

I'm not sure you picked up on my suggestion.

My suggestion is to change OUR way of thought. We frequently call it "Trim Level" and that is a correct term, however most people think of it as "Model".

By asking for model, instead of trim... I have gotten many less PM'* saying "What is trim?".

My theory is .. they would put in their trim level if they understood what we meant.

i think the easiest thing would be to not be lazy and actually say "year and trim level, ie; SE SLE SSEi GXP"
