Please check for the correct forum before posting...

Folks you are wearing out the moderators, their fingers are bleeding from moving non-tech threads out of this forum to bench racing as well as topic's that clearly fit in other tech forums without thinking hard about it.

This forum should never be used for non-tech posts and only be used when you have a topic that doesn't fit in one of the other forums. Like it says under the title from the main forum page "General Tech Area For best results use specific forums"

This is not a scolding or some type of power trip, just a simple request to get everyone to think about where they are posting... All the moderators are just trying to help, and that's the TC spirit just like trying to make sure folks get the right answers to their questions and helping with other site issues that crop up. If you haven't seen all the forums available here's a direct link...

http://www.camaros.net/forums/index.php

Here's a link to the main page as well, there may be some aspects of the site you've missed just hanging out in one place...

http://www.camaros.net/

Thank for reading this and for doing your part.

Re: A request from the moderators...

I have a sugestion;
Why not move "Camaro Tech" to the bottom of the page, instead of having it the first topic, at the top of the page? "Camaro Tech" does sound like an all encompassing lure to a first commer, until they decifer the way the site is really set up.

Re: A request from the moderators...

It is indeed a catch-all type of forum. From past experience it seems that unless there is a forum like this some new visitors get frustrated and never post, or if they do, it's in an area which doesn't get answered.

If it's not readily visible it would encourage more looking through the forums, but when we did that a few years ago the emails came in asking where to post. We can always give it another try.

Re: A request from the moderators...

I have a suggestion, is it possible to put a disclaimer banner with large, bold lettereing on the general forum page? Something like: "Please post your question in the approriate forum section. Catagories have been set up to help answer your questions efficiently. Please read the section description carefully before you post. Due to the volume of posts on this forum, all posts made outside of section content will be deleted. Please refer to our F.A.Q. section for further guidance. Thanks for your cooperation, Team Camaro Administratiors."

I know we do not want to discourage people, but simple rules should be just that. If people cannot figure that out then it is time for them to put down the wrenches.

Re: A request from the moderators...

How about if you changed the title,to something with less connection.
Everybody goes here first to find something or to post, because they want it in a hurray plus its first in line.

Re: A request from the moderators...

how about we look where we post before we post........umm novel idea I think.

I am just as guilty as anyone posting in the wrong place now and then because I have not done what I put above. Times that by 20,000 and I get DJD point.

Re: A request from the moderators...

I am guilty of this myself and am sorry for it.Now i know.How about like above moveing it and makeing one called B-S for just anything members want to discuss.Just a thought.This is how it is set up on the nova site i am a member of also.It like this site is one of the best i belong to!I came to a realization that chevy people are just alot cooler than any other car maker.I am a member on other forums and there are only a few people on them that are decent.If you want to check it out the nova site is www.steevesnovasite.com like here there is tons of info and great people to connect with and that is what it is all about to me.In my short time here i already have made friends with one member (MIKE) and plan on a cruise this comeing spring/summer with him.

CHEVY RULES.... HENRY WHOooo ?

Re: A request from the moderators...

I had a similar problem..so I got the stats for the most visited and most posted sections and placed them at the top, under thew "introduce yourself" the rest in order going down.
Result was far less intances of posting in wrong section, and the intro yourself tended to take most of them so it was basically only that area to mod.

My Spelling is not incorrect...it is creative

Maybe you could ask people to always put their YEAR in the topic.

This idea could be put in the info area under our names/nicks so it's can be seen if the member wants it there. I know some of us have more than one camaro but the space should have a place for only one.
