Not to be mean, and with all due respect for the work you and WD40 put into these forums, but based on his post in this thread (are you sure you are thinking that you are in the right forum?), the post did fit, although based on his description, it was doing a disservice to myself by posting it in the Owner's Lounge.

You did move it back to where it was, and I appreciate it. But from what I've seen with that process and your post here, it seems like you were thinking things were backwards or something. Why would you reference a thread that you are posting in in the first place? You did something similar in our PMs back and forth.

I think we all welcome the cleaning up of the forums, but moving stuff around that does have a spot in the place it was posted based on the descriptions of that forum/sub-forum makes it prohibitive to gain the proper audience for such posts and deters posting at all in the end.

V/R, my 2 cents :)
All I was doing was giving direct 'reference' to the areas I was stressing, that's my way of making sure my point is being taken.

The descriptions are there for a reason to help keep some order to the site. The non-SVT owners post in exterior, interior, performance like they should according to the thread topic and so should the SVT owners. Alot of the posts I've seen moved out of the SVT Performance area for one thing are not SVT specific. They are just posted there cause the owner 'owns' a SVTF.

Either way, I am just reinforcing and helping Doug as well as the site in general to keep it organized.

For the record, the thread I moved of yours was a 'borderline' thread, based on the SVT spoiler which is both good in Exterior or in SVT Owner's Lounge. It was a toss up thread and I felt it belonged in Exterior. Regardless, you PM'd me and I moved it back for you, no problem.

I think a lot of the reasons SVT owners tend to put "off-topic" posts in this forum is because we're by and large the minority on this site and our posts tend to get swallowed up in the other more broad forums.

I was hitting my head against the wall when I was looking for info on lowering my SVT, and yes, I do know how to use the search button

I dunno but I think it's really great to talk solely to other SVTF owners . While not one to be offensive *he he* it sort of pisses me off when a standard Focus owners chimes in on what they did to their ride in an SVT thread. To many posters appear to be oblivious to the fact that they are responding in an SVT specific thread. That can be attributed to so many of our vehicle specific threads getting sent out into the general population, IMO. Perhaps we can at least keep them in the SVTF owners lounge or something?

That's always an option, and probably why I try not to have to move as many threads from the SVT Owner's Lounge.

wd40, dude, i'm sorry for posting my diet thread in here, but the svt guys are the bomb. if you wanna move it, go for it. i just needed some advice from someone who knows what i'm going through... <sniff sniff>, its so hard living in a world where a man can't just wander in and ask a fellow svt owner a simple question about weight loss....<sniff sniff>, (are you buying this crap?) but you are the liberator of all that is svtf chat, and i can say no more to plead for your mercy and knowledge (unless you want me to beg or something)... Please, let me be heard!!! by the way, stellar right up on the shifter homie.... ford power!!

^^^Thanks^^^
Losing weight (on the car that is) is performance related enough,
and there sure isn't a specific forum for weight reduction.
I'm trying to find some threads for you.
It's been discussed quite a bit.
Remember, the SEARCH button is your friend, don't be afraid to click on it.

I disagree with the absolute necesity of posting in the "right" place. I argue this on the basis of my preference in certain situations to speak with only other SVT owners and exclude all other foci from the conversation. No offence to them, however, on a question that arises for an SVT specific scinario, an SVT owner would better answer the problem by relating personal experience. If it is legitimately an SVT only topic, will it be possible to leave the item in this thread?

Of course. That's what it is for.
Some items of interest would be:
1) Transmission and clutch assy.
2) Exhaust.
3) DSI intake and components.
4) Cams and the VCT.
5) Tunes and tuning issues.
6) Winter tire/wheel fitment.

Again I reiterate though:
Quote:
Lighting, wheels, tires, suspension, interior mods, exterior mods, forced induction, racing, general ramblings, etc,
all have specific areas where people "in the know" can answer your questions.
And, I reiterate S2's comment:
Quote:

Alot of the posts I've seen moved out of the SVT Performance area for one thing are not SVT specific.
They are just posted there cause the owner 'owns' a SVTF.
The reason I bumped this, (well, other than taking so long to respond to erittalf...sorry man),
Is I actually like to browse the forums, ask questions, answer questions, and see what everyone else is up to.
When I come in here like I did today, and have to move well over half the new threads,
it doesn't leave me much time do any browsing, let alone help anyone if they have a question.

PS:
Wayne (Hypnotic) has mentioned, if you have a specific question for him alone,
to post it in his forums...>>>Hypnotic Illusions Automotive

Thanks for taking the time to read this.
