    I would like to request a 1st Generation Forum be established in order to facilitate the grouping of 91-94 topics. The forum would be a General Explorations for 91-94's.

    Thanks for considering it.

    There are so many things in common between 1st Gens and later models that I don't think this would be productive. I can often help out with 1st Gen questions, but may not check that forum if it was created.

    Besides that we have many forums already and it's already a headache as to where things go and checking all the threads.

    Thanks for the suggestion though, we'll let Rick make the ultimate decision.

    I agree with Alec. IF anything we need to prune down the number of forums. There are too many places to put stuff...

    I can go with the flow, but it seems a bit tedious to wade through the hundreds of posts in order to find info specific to my model. The General Explorations forum seems to be one of the busiest ones on the board, so some division might be in order. One thought would be to make a trial forum with a 60 day sunset, unless you get a certain level of interest within that 60 days.

    Geez if yer gonna complain so much, go find other forums for explorers, then come back, and let us know. This is probly the most comprehensive explorer site i've ever come across... If it's too tough to use the search function, go elsewhere... Rick's done a great job by providing this place for us all.... and there already are, alot of forums... :rolleyes:

    Also, what helps is if EVERYONE fills out their model and year info under their Avatar or User Name.

    ok no fingers pointing anywhere... but i can see that this is going to just start a big arugument.... lets just try to remember that everyone on the site has their own opinion and is entitled to it... this started off with a suggestion lets not let it escalade into somthing bad... We do have a great forum here unlike many others where all they do is moan and complain. I would just like to tell Rick and all of the moderators thank you for everything you guys do...

    That should be mandatory,make it just like having 6 sig. lines only.

    I hate when people ask questions, and you have to guess what year X they have....:confused:

    RFR2212, I have used the search function, and it does a great job at what it is designed for. But the search function is not the proper tool for organizing threads of discussion on a regular and ongoing basis; forums are the tool of choice for that job.

    This is a suggestion box forum where people are directed to post suggestions, and I think that's a great idea. Rather than look for a different forum for Explorers, I have thrown up an idea to make a change that might or make this forum better. I'm glad the board owner chose to make suggestions possible, rather than adopt the "love it or leave it" approach.
