Hey guys im doing a report on maxbimmer and ive been asked to get feedback on how and what could be done to make maxbimmer better. So just post what you think would make max even better (i know thats hard). These recommendations may include suggestions for change, suggestions for additions, modifications or deletions. Non of this is acctually gonna happen yet id just like to know what you guys would like and maybe the mods can take these into consideration.

Thanks,

Julian

IMHO...

We need firmer regulations and rules when it comes to posting stupid stuff. I enjoy reading off topic as much as anyone...infact, it makes my day go by faster, but there are posts that we can absolutely live without. In addition, the moderators need to apply some type of ban, which I am in support of 100%. We have too many KNOWN individuals that do not contribute anything positive to the community. Do we need them? No. Finally, we need to implement the search function better, maybe make it more apparent!! I cannot count how many times threads are started, which were only recently discussed...but simply was not researched pre-post. Let's make this button stand out more!

yeah mon.

Would be nice to get a IRC room going, preferably on efnet. A new private section for members in the higher gears to avoid newbie flaming threads. Also a ReVShoT filter would be nice. :)

I agree with GEEE . . on somethings . . .don't know if a ban is the best solution . . warnings to members I like are better . . . 3 strikes your out ! !

I agree on the whole search topic . . . . . Learn it, Love it, Use it ! ! !

An IRC room is a good idea IMO, its free, anyone can join a conversation.. and its easier communication between members for a cruise or weekly meet!

This wasnt my idea, it's eurostyle's and im just agreeing with a great idea he had about making a point rating system...when somone posts something good, you give them a rating...and we know who the valuable members to this forum actually are...

Also i think IRC would not be a good idea, not many people know how to use irc (well i do) but at least half ot he people would have to download it ... i think a better idea if you are leaning towards this kind of chat room would be AIM (aol instant messenger...) most forums use that instead of MSN/IRC as instant chat.

How about a java-based chat room that can be used with the forum? A point rating systemn is what we should have, and eliminate post counts

post counts or no post counts doesen't matter really...i dont think its a huge factor in making the forum better...i think it needs more seriousness...

the java thing is a good idea, i forgot about that.

I think I've been around long enough to have a few suggestions;

1. There should be an 18+ category or ban on nude picks/porn, don't get me wrong I love both but I hate having that on my screen (especially when I am at work and someone walks into my office!!!!) Titles are not always clear. It's also a reason we may attract less girls!
2. I like the idea of being able to rate ppl's posts/threads for a few reasons. One of which is that one can find the best posts rather than filter through 50+ to find something interesting. Sort of a max for ppl on the go!
3. Some people should have their memberships revoked or suspended, evaluated on an as needed basis. There should be one single criteria for this: Does the individual display respect to the other members of the forum.
4. Some form of instant chat would be cool but I tnink it would be more of a headache than anything else... stick to messenger, icq or whatever.
5.Obvious things should be enforced, i.e. ppl who post WTB's in the for sale section (there is a section for that),
6.It would be cool to have St.Johns/Montreal/Ottawa/Toronto/Calgary/Vancouver sections. For meets, local hookups, mechanics, etc.
7. Greater effort could be made to attract businesses that could offer group buys or member discounts (this is not very hard... but someone has to go out and do it!)
8. Get a spell-check option... I'm bad but others are terrible

There's plenty more but that's enough for now.. time to get ready for the dinner I hate the most every year. I spend 365 day's being nice... why do I have to go out and choose from a limited $50 menu and feel like a tool cause there are 100 other couples around doing the exact same thing!!!

Anyway just my $.08
