Hey everyone, and welcome.
Wow, what a group of great people. It really blew my mind when I noticed all the new posts the other day. You guys really pulled together to create a true "BROTHERHOOD". It's really great to see everyone come together like this and create a great community.
So, where do we go from here? As you probably have read in several posts already, this is your community, or at least that's how I feel. Most decisions will be left to be made by you folks. Most major decisions will go to a poll to be vote on. This is the only way I can see to run a community without people getting upset and PO'd. This community is for you and about you.
Everything here is open door, have a request, just ask.
About moderators. I have had a lot of requests for people to become moderators. At the moment I thing we currently have it covered base on our member base. But for those who have expressed interest, I'll definitely keep you in mind as we grow.
Now, I have seriously considered upgrading this forum software. The new software would be much like many other forum software platforms. More bells and whistles etc. The negative aspect is that we would lose the gallery images as well as the garage info. You would have to upgrade all of this again. And I know that is a PITA. The other downside, it that it is an expensive to upgrade, while this forum software is free, the other platform will run about $250 so I am reluctant to drop the coin unless we show significant signs of growth. So this will be left up to you guys to vote on shortly.
