CEG Forum Suggestion Compilation
#1164822 - 02/08/06 11:43 PM

Realistic suggestions by CEGers to improve the site compiled from this thread. Please feel free to add to it!

This thread will be updated from time-to-time.

Additional moderators
Self explanatory and badly needed.

Additional site admins
Self explanatory and badly needed.

Additional forums
Transaction Feedback forum
Almost all forums have them. Very easy to moderate with some simple, basic rules.

Detailing forum
Again, something most other sites have. It would be nice to have a section dedicated to the care of the interior, exterior, engine bay, wheels, etc. Would also reduce the massive clutter in the Aesthetics forum.

Electronics forum
Bulbs, foglights, HIDs, LEDs, sidemarkers, neon kits, alarms, remote starts, gauge pod installation, indiglow gauges, etc. Would also reduce the massive clutter in the Aesthetics forum.

Auto discussion forum - non-Contour/Mystique related
Would be a great addition for thsoe that want to discuss automobiles without having to weed through Common Interests.

For Sale / WTB forum
Again, something most other sites have. Some basic rules stickied on top would make things very easy.

Combine forums
- SCCA / NASA Events w/ Dyno and Drag - rename to Track / Dyno (?)
Both forums are used little, combining them would make sense.

- Eastern Canada w/ Western Canada - rename to Canada
Western Canada has 162 threads...

- Combine Duratec Performance & Duratec Maintenance

- Combine Zetec Performance & Zetec Maintenance

Remove forums
CEG National Conventions.

More Parent Forums

Avatars
- Limited in size. No animation. Must follow forum rules. (work safe, no nudity, etc.)
- Avatars for moderators only?

Main Site
- Update. Its is terribly outdated.
- Grant a few moderators the ability to make changes / add some site admins.

Profiles
- Lack of approvals has turned what was a good idea into minimal participation.
- Allow self-control to update and add pics. CEGers donate money to CEG and yet can't have pics hosted here with without jumping through hoops.
- Clicking person's name to take user to profile.

Search
Very weak. Everyone knows this.

Rule Clarification
Some guidance / clarification as to how "strict" moderators and admins should be enforcing the rules.
