If you guys have any important threads or pertinant info, you might want to start backing it up. Last major overhaul saw a bunch of threads, pictures, info disappear. If you have any FAQ's or pictures that are rare, info saved as threads favs....start backing it up just incase.
I for one don't want to see one of those portal pages where nothing gets updated (see probetalk for an example of a portal page that hasn't been updated since '05- http://www.probetalk.com/modules/news/) or a homepage that needs registration for access to threads.
IE: I've posted plenty of "how to's" and or picture threads in general on www.mazda323performance.com but if I gave you the link, you'd have to register to see it.
I browse at work alot and often get people looking over my shoulder. They say things like "what website is that?" and "oh, it's a car website?" and the next comments are usually "nice format" or "good colors".
One time I heard "Club Si SUCKS compared to that"- dead serious too. May the flying spaghetti monster strike down one of my testiculars if I'm not telling the truth.
