Hello everyone,

It's been awhile since I gave the forum a tune up.
I'm looking for your ideas and suggestion. Please share what you like and what you would like to see removed. Anything is fair game.

I thinking of a new header and removing google ads. I might offer the ad space for groups or events. Those would be free. Commercial if any can pay a fair share. You know what I mean.

There is a chat room. and a few other under utilized features. links or categories?

Thanks

It's a fight against FB, but I think people are getting fed up with it.  These forums are far superior for information.

I agree, forums are superior to Facebook. A post on Facebook gets buried so quickly especially if it's popular. 2 weeks later if you want to reference back you'll never find it again.
But Facebook is superior as far as reaching out and connecting people as a short term network. Most people don't realize that this form allows you to take any post and send it to Facebook. So technically your post can reach a broad audience and get the best of both worlds and you can still reference back easily and find what's important as far as information goes.

Hi Mike, glad you shared your thoughts. I'm going to do updates and maybe trim out categories that are not relevant.
I'm thinking of a mentor thread.

You mean like a ask a Smith section that could be useful ......and there are categories that haven't had a post in years so it only makes sense to trim the fat
