New Off Topic Discussions Category

Would you consider adding another category under Off Topic Discussions - Other Builds? The Other Cars category has its uses, but a lot of miscellanious unrelated stuff too. There are a number of folks with build threads for non-FFR cars in there with all the other stuff. It would be nice if folks with non-FFR builds had a category just for restoration and build projects. There are a number of us working on vintage Mustang builds, a separate forum page for Other Builds would highlight these efforts.

Thanks for your consideration.

Alan

In the "Other Cars" category. What is often posted in Other Cars is unrelated to build activities. Adding another category specifically for Other Builds (non-FFR) would reduce the clutter and highlight these builds.

Thanks,

Alan

If there is any forum adjustments available and you decide to add one, can you dump all the Smyth stuff in there too? I'd also like the link to the Smyth forums taken off the drop down. Smyth is not affiliated with FFR and they don't deserve front-line visibility.

Thanks.

Lee: Thanks for considering adding the new "Other Builds" category. How do you get a consensus from everyone that it is OK to add the category?

Hey Alan_C,

Just wanted to let you know that I have contacted the mods on the site regarding your request. We'll get your section up once we get confirmation from them.

Cheers,

Natalie

Natalie: Thanks so much for your efforts to add the new "Other Builds" category. I am pleased that the forum administrators are willing to add to the forum structure. My hope is the new category will provide a vehicle to assist other FF owners share their other projects.
