^^^ That sounds about right.

I wasn't around for the founding of most of the groups, but the majority had something in common to start - Region or Model.

This one formed from a group sharing a random chat thread, and despite some teasing about 'rice" mods is accepting of whatever members decide to do for their own fun.

Actually this is a pretty good copy of the Sonic Crew. Notice the VERY similar attributes and setup:
Sonic Crew: http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=299319
Takers: http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=519409

Now, I have JUST NOW looked at all the other owner's clubs and Sonic's Crew was the only other one that had that same layout that Takers copied. It might not be a direct copy, but a copy nonetheless. I know Luis came up with this concept in retaliation to Sonic Crew not accepting him, and he might not say it, but why else would it be so close?

Maybe Sonic's Crew is cool? haha

Or perhaps just a reference point to start with that had a little familiarity.

Does it really matter?

Do you have any suggestions? Perhaps some changes or additions you've had good experience with?

Well I was just pointing out that the rules/regs indeed are a copy. To help you guys out though, I do feel that the hunt is a bit weird. Not everyone does plastidip I know ALOT that are against it.. Not everyone can park next to a massive body of water. You maybe should review that aspect of membership. Also, if you guys really want this to be a crew accepting of everyone, get rid of the approval process that Sonic's crew had. That will make your club an exclusive thing to get into. I agree that Sonic's crew was a bit weird to get into hence why our crew is somewhat small. Not all focus peeps mod their cars ya know.

Well I'm "king" of the hunt now so I'm open to input.

I like the "hunt" I just figured it might be hard for some to complete, hence my "activism" about changes to it.

And the water part can be anything... Even a Puddle. But again suggestions are welcome here!

And the plastidip part is not a permanent requirement.

At first I kinda thought the hunt was stupid. But then once I did it it was fun. So I was being overly tarded about it originally. ;-)

Some of that cropped up when micah got hit trying to go out and get pics the first or second night. I was really worried he could have gotten badly hurt. I think k he was anxious about trying to get his hunt done. I didn't see the point then.... He was really zealous about being in the TakeOver.

I would like to see more people "getter done" ... So far only 4 of us have made any headway with it.

Interesting. I really liked the hunt. That's one of the reasons I joined. I thought it was different and added an aspect outside of post count to join. Not just some joe blow signing up for a number (but that's not me trying to be nasty about crews that are like that -- don't start that again!!).

I agree the body of water was difficult. But that's where a bit of creativity comes in. I live in the desert and just happened to have a pond in town. But I was tempted to use a bucket of water -- it is a body of water. It's not meant to be hard (I don't think) but fun in a way.

Plastidip - yea I understand that. Might be worth considering revising. Really it was only for the picture, so you could remove it. But that means you're still buying it in the first place just to play...

I don't want us to be exclusive in the sense that you have to be special to get in. But I really do like having done something to get in other than show up.

I like the suggestions. Keep em coming. Some of you have good/bad experience to share!!! :)
