So let's see what we could figure out about the newer forums.

Here's what I was envisioning... I have NO IDEA if this is at all what everyone else thinks or not... so I figured this'd be a nice place to start into that.

Here's the current break down.

I'd like to see the following changes..

- Creation of a Miscellaneous - Other categegory for
-- Misc Hoo-Haa
-- Hot Haa (Kept Private)
-- Photography* if necessary
-- Car Audio
-- Motorsports

- Creation of a General Volkswagen category for
-- NB/VW Toys
-- VW Aircooled
-- VW water cooled
-- VW Rumors/Insights

We should get rid of the Discussion Misc, or just make it the above mentioned Misc -Other type of category, NBC should be moved to Discussion Techincal?

Keep the news category for NB.org news, reviews and features IF AND ONLY IF we actually start getting some reviews written up etc...

Under Marketplace, could there be another section for selling beetle related items? I know one person sells VW purses and I sell VW bibs and pillows. I never know where I should try and list them, so I just have the link to my eBay store in my sig.

I like how Hoo Ha Hot Topics got broken down into sections. Still think we might need a joke section!??

The rest is looking really promising!:D

*Grr, VB3 doesn't remember me very well.

Jokes; sure that'd be a fair move. I guess we could change "hobbies" to something else, "From the sidelines" or somethin' like that?

Hot Topics: I'm not sure about the breaking it up yet. I like the idea, only because it will allow people in search of political refuge shelter from the religious stuff; and vice versa. Basically limit the affected area.

Miscellaneous VW related goods sounds like a great idea.

I like noR's revised items. And I agree, a VW related goods forum. The "NB Coupe", and "NBC'' will work for keeping every year together, and not dividing them (re: '98-05/06+).

Keeping Hot topics "hidden" or "subscription" only, or at the very least, not accessible for one week after registering, good ideas.

This is getting exciting!:)

Anyone have a list of all the engines available? I think I also wan't to include VR6, since that has become more and more common.

Should we have a break down of the Moderators Hideout?

I can see it working as it does now...but if we had specific areas it might be easier to follow issues...but I don't want to make it more complicated than it needs to be...

Moderator Hideout:
- General
- Thread needs closing/editing/etc (for moderators of other forums to report)
- Users Ban/Warning/Watch

'cept the only VR6's in Bugs are either RSi's or aftermarket so there really isn't much discussion, except for people drooling.

There are more and more people doing the swap. There've been quite a few to post on the Vortex lately.

I think it'd be nice to have an area for that to be discussed here. Whether it be asking for advice for a problem for someone who has already done it, or even how to's or informational for those who are thinking about doing it.

Awesome idea about the moderator's hideout Antoine. That'd kick things up a notch.

Yeah, w/the VR6's it's not only a way for those members to share their vr6 knowledge & experiences w/us; but rounds them up for us to drool. ;)

Hope you don't mind the red-text edit Antoinne; I'll rebuild that list again at the end of the day; just using the text color to highlight the change info.

*VB3 note: when editing a post; It's kinda confusing that the edit button stays there. I've 2 or 3 times clicked on 'edit' again, instead of 'save' while making edits.

Good idea. Trolls, and spammers moved threads? Black hole, Yay!

That's cool...I guess I should have done that.

Okay - you guys have convinced me about the VR6 thingy...maybe it will illicet more of the tuner types to the forum as well...

Like a place for all the threads that have been locked and moved to the hideout or the ones that we have duplicated to the hideout just in case we need to be able to go back to the pre-edited versions for any reasons.
