Re: Black M5... no more!
1. I would like to see the cursing outta here...this is not road fly nor is it e46fanatics.
Good point,, we can implement that right away. I dont like curses either.
2. Have people posting things in the correct forums..im not sure how you as moderators can handle that more, i know its difficult. I find myself actually trying to help point m5board members to this when they post but somehow the posts take quite some time to move into the OT (where most of them belong) section. Even you and I have had discussions about you, yourself, leaving obviously off topic items in the wrong forums, only because you know that they will get more exposure. Sometimes that is a smart idea, but sometimes I just can see how some of the posts that are left have anything to do with the m5....
My rule is that if it is generally interesting or a very special and interestign thing, let's leave it a few days for discussion, then move it. For example if Adam would testdrive a McLaren F1, you driving a Enzo or something similar. Also, if it is something we all M5 enthusiast must know, like the launch of an E65 AMG or something.
3. In doing as such and I had a discussion with Kees the other day, and I understand where he is comming from, but i was actually slightly repremanded for using 2 lines out of another post to answer a question that was directly asked of me. Yet the other 2 topics that i bring up seemingly got/get little attention from moderators other than to just move threads or trash them when things get nasty. I know what the use of PM's are, and I certainly know when or when not their use is needed.
I cant speak for Kees, that is something you should ask him about.
Im a bit different from the last time I left and i think that because i have the responsibility to do the same actions you guys do. I just think that there are other things that need sorting out before comming to me...im the last person on this board to worry about.
Im trying to ensure that the board stays friendly and civilized just as the rest of us are. The mean age of this board should show through though us youngsters try to keep it a bit "hip."
Yes, but if we get similar to m3forum of bimmer I would see no joy in maintaining this site. I have personally been slandered for pages and pages on other forums and that is just a mess. If you are approved to m5board.com as a member you should take your time to post a correct post, be friendly and do well thought out posts. There are other forums for people who don't wnat to put in an effort in their communication with other members. But here it should be about quality.
