Re: section for threads?

Leon, that would be Bench section. Its a sort of catch all where guys show pics of their cars as they progress, car show pics and misc. stuff too.

Re: section for threads?

Jim I'm thinking Leon is looking for a more defined "Project's" forum or a section like the Showroom...

Re: section for threads?

I see now... of course a body work project might fit in Body section better if looking for ideas or help. Engine overhauls best in Engine etc... and overall pics on the lawn finished, in Showroom or Bench but we really dont have a "project" forum but something to consider I suppose.

Re: section for threads?

that was what i was thinknig, a project forum. i, myself hit snags every now and again and wonder how things should look, and its inspiring to see others rides coming along.

you can always search whatever topic your looking for, but i just thought as you watch someone elses progress you can learn as they go also. like right now, im not doing my interior yet. but if i notice something someone else did as they got to that point, it might save me or someone else some headaches. just a thought.

You might take a look at the showroom, also many members have some pretty cool websites.

Other than that, use the "search" for what you are looking for, you'll probably find it.

Re: section for threads?

Thats one reason the forums are in seperate sections right now, when you work on your interior its best to hang there and post questions and photos. But interior would not be where you post pics of finished body pics or engine detailing, so you'd have to move to those areas for appropriate comment, since engine guru might not hang out in the 'interior' section where you post pics.
Putting all 'projects' in one area might not bring the help you need either, as folks think a finished project is in a 'project' section too. Hard to say but the forums have been working well and Al is always looking for fresh ideas. Im sure he will read this thru.

Re: section for threads?

jim m, not to sound like a jerk, but are you one of those people they call "search nazis" ? you know were they only chime in for the sole purpose of telling people to use the search key?

my whole point was that you cant search for things you dont even know your looking for! if someone is browsing how projects are going along, you just may see some neat things you didnt even know to look for.

Re: section for threads?

Easy there Leon... many new visitors to the site are not the experienced forum master you are sounding like. Give the search feature a try, type in "projects". You'll get a lot of threads you don't want but you'll also get some good hits showing what others are doing...

Take all the help here as just that, help. Jim could have repeated what others said but instead he gave you another option. He had no way of knowing what you really wanted, just like the rest of us kinda had to guess. I had to totally throw out your title as the whole site is full of threads before understanding what you were asking for...

Sorry but the site doesn't offer more than the showroom for posting pictures. I get the feeling you were looking for your own personal space for your project but we don't have that. Again I assure you all input here was an attempt to help you! Nobody is a Search Nazi -

Re: section for threads?

It's been tried to have some project pages but very few ever came back to update them, so all we had was old info.

What we are doing now is linking to those who do have project websites.
Here is an example for 1968

Re: section for threads?

looks like i'll be sticking to ls1 tech since everyone here is so uptight. and i did a search on jim m ....and he is a search nazi, over and over, and over.

i want nothing for my own personal space (ther's myspace and a whole bunch more free sites for that), sorry i offended so many high and mighty people by having an idea, that incidentally was just a question. others assumed i was suggesting a new forum.

Maybe you should go back to hanging out on LS1tech...

Tell me, how many of my TWELVE THOUSAND POSTS did you read to label me a "Search nazi"?

Guys, I'm hurt here... I never been called that before, tell me it ain't true?

Re: section for threads?

Its not true at all. A search nazi would have made a short statement like 'use the search' period, nothing else. You (JimM) mentioned folks own personal website that are plentiful and that the 'search' would yield many things to look at.
I think leon needs to settle down on that term. Spend some time reading the thousands of threads that help folks on a daily basis and realize he mis-spoke there. Most NEW members dont realize the huge amount of info. in the search data base and when they find out, they are very happy and thankful someone pointed it out. With only 30 posts I also considered him new and needing direction to where his needs would be met but the nazi term is really not called for in this site.

Re: section for threads?

Leon - we are not a bunch of uptight folks... Maybe there is an age difference here, everyone offered you helpful advice based on what you were asking about. Seems like a big commutations gap here. You are the one being either overly sensitive or uptight... You attacked Jim because you didn't like his post.

Let's start over, please explane what this means to you,

To me a section is a place and a thread is a series of posts. Yes this site has many sections to it and they are full of threads just like this one.

No, all the sections are topical but feel free to post something in the body shop showing the progress of your car (I think Jim "click" already said something much like this) as it's going through rust repair or paint... Same in brakes and suspension when you install that rack & pinion and C5 brakes... You can keep a thread alive as long as you want. Then there is also our Showroom where you can post pictures and add coments, you can also create albums and link to classifications like 1st gen, engines and technical.

Might ask yourself why it bothered you so much when someone suggested the search feature!
