    New Members and Others

    Two of the nicest parts of running this asylum is opening up the forum first thing in the morning and seeing that there are new posts on the board and that there are New Members registering on the forum. Not only does that say that the site is still running, but it also means that our membership is growing after all the inactive member pruning.

    While going over the new registrations, I marvel at the number of ways you can manipulate W201, 190E or Mercedes into a user name. There's some sheer genius out there.

    While mostly North American-centric and being an English language board, we do get a fair share of registrations from Northern Europe, where the W201 mojo seems particularly strong. Eastern Europe (other than spammers) fans also seem to find our site occasionally, but we're really under represented in areas where Espanol is the primary language.

    My request to new members, and to those existing members that didn't do it initially, is to make sure that your user information, located in the User CP section, is current and that you honor us with some information about your location (other than that jackass' "Most Remote Land Mass" stuff) and what cars you have or other interests you'd like to share. It goes a long way into making this place a closer community, so I encourage it.

    ^ and follow them North another 900 miles!

    I know I am guilty of not updating my details, I will soon. I also promise by this summer I will start my members ride thread too! More of us need to have a members ride thread like John's or danwatt's etc. I really enjoy reading those threads.

    Sure it isnít just all the old members that got booted when the server changes happened? If I wanted to look at something on the old forum without logging in it was easy. Now if your not a member you have to sit at that stupid user agreement section waiting for that counter to expire. Iím sure everyone read that agreement right?

    Yeah I thought so, how about we turn that crap off?

    How bout you incourage some of these fools up in this joint not to belittle and make new members not want to log back on after there 1st thread post... I've seen here many new & old members belittled and insulted on ideas and imaginations by some members on here... Seems kinda grade school stuff occuring here frequently....
    Then and only then will you have a respectable forum....

    But then it wouldn't be a forum on the internet. Seriously, there's always going to be someone that says something that's not very mature, that's the one thing I've learned from being a member, moderator, and admin of forums.

    Thick skins, a sense of humor and civility go hand in hand with forums. There are times when exchanges go "over the line" or simply said, are just stupid. I always encourage members to read what they write before hitting the post button. Can't tell you how many posts I've not made even after writing them.
