Now here's why we created a "Build Projects" forum; Your "project" (don't try to tell me it is a restoration not a project...) your project thread was in the body shop forum. What are you going to do when you start on the drive train? what are you going to do when you start on the interior? Do you really want the story of your car in at least 3 places? By having it in "Build Projects" it can be all together.
Dennis, I personally see what you're trying to accomplish with the addition
of the "Build Projects" forum and feel it is a good thing. The tricky part is
when someone (myself included) has a "build thread" going but runs into a
specific area looking for help, posting that question in a specific forum,
without giving the back ground of the build, can lead to confusing anyone
that might reply. I think this is why some of the members have asked to
be allowed to move their build thread as it progress's through the many stages.
When I am asking for help in a specific area, I try to post a
new thread pertaining to that area only and follow up my question with a
reference to my build thread. That seems to work for me any way. On the
other hand, I've seen a number of different threads from the same poster
with out a build thread going. That makes it very difficult to understand the
cars back ground causing very few, and in some cases, no replies. Too many
threads have become personal diaries (soap opera like) and I stopped
following them. Like Rob said, it will all work out in the end. Feel free to move
my build thread to the new "Build Projects" forum.
