Lightbulb How about a new forum for the DIY guys?

I'm thinking about a forum discussing all the issues and problems we've experienced after years of wrenching; call it the PITA forum. This will be just for DIYers who actually wrench on our own stuff. I have several just from these last few months.

F250 sold.

diy

I think it's a good idea for a forum. The veterans can help us and maybe bring some newbies into the club.

Ummm, yea they do.

Idk how well this would work though because basically this whole site is DIY.
You'd have to have two separate sites: one for DIYs and one for not DIYs, and all the same sub forums like you do now.

How bout if the idea of the forum is based around building and modifying things for our trucks that wasn't bought as a "kit".

This might follow the DIY'er idea a little closer and not encompass the entire site.

Just an idea.

I know it seems like I'm raining on parades here, but I am I always play the opposite side no matter what. It helps people refine themselves and better prove their point. I do it for you, really.

I bet if you tallied kit threads vs. non kit threads, it'd be maybe close to half, but probably the majority are still non kit.
That's just from what I've observed after being on here absurdly too many times.

Just to discuss, I see what your sayin and understand but having a "diy" section could be a way to kinda group a lot of the diy ideas together so they aren't as spread out over the forums.

Me personally, I log on and search "new posts" and then kinda go through everything that I missed. I'm sure some members stay inside certain forums and thats that but it is kinda boring to me. This idea wouldn't give me personally, a place to "hang out" but would maybe draw a group of diy'ers to post projects in a dedicated forum?

Isnt that EXACTLY what this site is? you come here to learn how to DIY on your truck so you dont have to take it to proffesionals? Dont get me wrong I am all ears to new ideas, but that is basically what the site is in my eyes, plac where I learn and help teach others how to wrench on my rig, their rig!

P.S. Gblauf, we do visit here frequently

and in case yall didnt notice, this thread just got bumped up from 2009
