I feel this site is not as good as i it used to be, in my opinion this site was best 6 mths or so ago when there was a very large technical content, there were arguments, but they were constructive arguments about differnt approaches and theories to engine tuning,
I felt a sort of pecking order being established with the knowlegable people helping those who were prepared to listen, i will always have time to accept the advice those who are more knowlegable on a subject, then i can form my own opinions from what i have heard,
Since then the site has taken a gradual shift in direction
The thing i feel is spoiling the website is the very clicky and personal relationship people have developed, this has two problems, - it makes it less welcoming to new members, - and it causes arguments where some one has a go at thier mate, I feel that because it is a web site we need to argue to make it intresting, and therefore personal topics shouldnt be open to debate
and some people will hate this but i believe that some people (single women) that are joining purley for friendship it seems, (maybe to meet a boyfriend)
One thing i that has always annoyed me about this site and it is becoming increasingly more so, is the base model owners who have nothing usefull to contribute and talk about "Kits" "Badboy Bonnets" "Neons" this is OK as its easy to sift through these posts but they seem to be increasing in volume, and it would be nice if there could be some sort or segrigation?
With Joe gone we have lost one of the 2 or 3 "Teachers" on the techy side, and i think this is a great loss, and i think it is in-directly because of the above reasons,
If anyone knows of a strictly techy website i would appreciate a link,
This isnt a moan so much as constructive critisisme,
I personally only really view with intrest posts in the power/mechanical forum, and that is still clogged up with nonsense from "RT" owners about pointless things that have been gone over a milion times before, maybe they should visit the maxpower website as well?
