There are WAY TOO MANY CATEGORIES !

Maybe it's just me, but traffic on this website is down.

Maybe it's the economy, I don't know.

But ever since they screwed with this website several weeks ago, expanding the categories; it just isn't as good IMHO.

Re: There are WAY TOO MANY CATEGORIES !

Beth, I normally just hit the new posts button, that way I can see what is new. That way is easier and it does not matter how many catagories there are. But I do miss the old logo on the swag

Yeah Beth I like variety, and I do like some of the breakout forums they added but I'm finding that most days I never get off the today's post screen and dive in deeper to any given section any more. Just not enough time in the day to explore. Have to hustle to keep my head above water in this economy.

But I think with time the site traffic will increase again and there will be something for everyone. The Generations after ours also have many decent forums such as nastyz and we do have other choices as first gen owners, but TC still covers the best range of topics and offers the most seasoned advisers around.

So IMHO just sit back and let some time help settle the dust and see what new forums survive - I suspect a few will just dry out new post wise and be forgotten. And once the elections are over see if folks then have some faith in the future and start spending again. Then the number of how to posts should return to normal. Or so I would hope.

I'm sorry you feel that way over the changes. The site only gained 3 new forums (Tips & Tricks, Non-Camaro Tech and Build Projects). everything else is the same. The groups the forums are in were renamed and some forums moved around in an effort to help define the site.

This has always been a 1st gen site but forums like performance, trouble shooting and such get way too many "all generation" posts so those forums that work for all generations are grouped together. The first gen only forums have been grouped together as well.

There is another benefit to the groups and that is at the main forum page www.camaros.net/forums each group has a switch (up and down arrows to the right on the red bar the group name is on) that lets you hide or display each group.

Maybe that will make your personal experience here better, the changes were intended to pull the site together as it had been 3 years since anything had been updated.

As for the traffic here, it's been on a downward trend for the past 3 years...

You used to be able to get the original logo (still on the top of the page) on shirts, decals, etc. The new decals were generic when I signed up for lifetime. Glad I got some when they were having the closeout sale.

Re: There are WAY TOO MANY CATEGORIES !

I agree, I normally peruse the new posts button. Spend some time in off topic just to read nonsense. I wonder why the traffic has been down???

After I sent my $$ up for lifetime membership I got nothing. Discussing it on the thread at the time yielded no results either. But, in the big picture of life, it really doesn't matter.

I too have noticed less postings, but you guys still come through when I pose a question.

I guess us Gold Members don't count. I never got anything for signing us as a Gold Member but I guess you figure the postage, printing and keeping track of things has a cost factor the new owners. Its no longer about promoting " Team Camaro" it's about pop-up adds and garbage. No products are available for purchase either. Too bad this was too much on Al and Dot.....

Re: There are WAY TOO MANY CATEGORIES !

Well I probably sounded too critical.
I did like the way things were organized before, but I'm old and don't like to change

Same here, and it's not really about the stickers or the "care package", it's simply the principle of the matter. TheDon was absolutely no help at all and trying to get results was like communicating with a box of rocks; lesson learned.

It takes a fool or an idiot to first criticize! It takes a wise and intelligent man to first ask why!
