PostSubject: Suggestions on how to improve the site.   October 26th 2009, 6:44 pm

As the site has gotten older and we have grown, we are always looking for ways to improve the site for all members. If anyone has any ideas on how to improve the site, or bring in new members, feel free to post it, or PM a moderator. Your help is greatly appreciated. We have also found that word of mouth is the best way to bring in new members, so if everyone can spread the word, that would be awesome! Thanks guys & girls!

Well I've been thinking... We did the samething with T4L we had stickers made and Jr. made a youtube vid!!


Now that my $$$ situation is getting better I'd buy stickers and stuff for sure... Also the video would get our name out there... I'm not sure if you've seen them or not but people often post videos of their auto problems on youtube for people to comment answers on... If we could lure people in that way then that would help out!


Just my $.02 for now...

I appreciate everyones input so far, if anyone has anything else to add, please share.

Fasel, We are limited with what we can do without Junior here, but thanks for the ideas. I appreciate the input, and when he returns we will definately put that into play.

Hey Fasel
I'm always messing around on youtube, but I can't say I have seen anything like what your talking about, or anything on youtube that invited me to a particular forum.
Would you have an example or a link to what you mean?

Your idea sounds interesting. Youtube could provide some good exposure.

I was expecting to get invited to a forum on each of those videos. I didn't see a banner or any kind of an invite.

How would something like those videos help promote this site? I'm not quite understanding it yet. Sorry man

Now that this site is a lot more stable then the last one, and is obviously growing, I can work on a "AD" video for youtube. Since the gallery is not working, I will need every member on here who WANTS their truck featured in this video to either email me a link to an offsite that has a collection of them, like photobucket or myspace etc, or email me the pics you want me to use. PLEASE DO NOT POST THEM IN THIS THREAD.... I will have a harder time organizing them, and differentiating them.... so if y'all want me to do that, please either PM me here, or email me at junior3382@hotmail.com, putting your SN from this site in the subject so I know not to delete the email...lol
