well the feedback forums really just needs to go away and be part of the persons profile and then they need to have a rating next to their join date/location

Usually when they get burned, and then typically they post in the wrong forum.

Question based on the new reorganization demoting showroom back to general... I've always put my junk in showroom because it's felt like the Projects and Restorations was for the serious "taken off the road for months" Projects. But the new layout makes me feel like I should be posting in Projects instead.

What're the thoughts on what is and isn't a project? I've swapped engines etc in my showroom threads...

Per the heading description

"Long term single thread ground-up project documentation and build process threads only"


Sounds like you should start a project thread and throw it all in there, I feel like showroom threads are better suited for multiple people contributing photos/info/etc.

Or simply ask a mod to move it for you.

I'm probably closer to 40%. Heck I can't even get people to let me know that they got stuff, I have to PM them.

When people don't let you know they received their package, it usually means they did and had no issues with the transaction. Only when there is a problem you will hear back from the buyer. I don't always remember to leave feedback either. I actually like the feedback sub forum. I hate the rating systems that other forums use.

^This.
My experience with TB sale feedback is as bad as eBay feedback.

I feel like the project forum is single threaded for a running history of a car. It probably shouldn't be in 'mechanical' since it shouldnt be used for q&a type help but I felt like it was more inline with those topics than stuff in 'general'.

Showroom should really change into something different.. i just dont know what yet. Its mostly just photos of cars and wheel posts right? Maybe it could be somewhere to post up "what you did this weekend (with pics!)" kind of posts?

How has everyone adjusted to the change now?

If I happen to be in showroom, I still find myself looking for projects at the top of the page.

I don't like it either seems showroom has been scattered about, and is now hard to find or follow.

Showroom has historically been where people post cool stuff they're doing with their cars AND they want people to actually see it. It seems like Projects were always much less visited and posts were less seen, at least that's how it was when Projects were hidden in Showroom.

So I like Projects much better now that it's out in the open. Maybe some of the people with active Project threads can comment if their threads are more active since the change.

agreed, I think the only growing pain is that with projects more out front it seems to be catching more mis-posts that don't really belong in projects. Not a big deal though.

FNG here. The fact that a bunch of you turbobrickers joined when I was in elementary school blows my mind, holy cow. This forum has served as a handy source of information throughout the years; even before I joined when I tinkered with my old 240's...
Thanks for taking care of the forum!
