Whats missing folks, why are so many going to Probe Talk and not hear. I don't care if this is not as big, but what am I missing that would attract a few more bodies? As you can see I have moved the Probe area to the top. Tell your PT buddies ;o) that we are flexible here, with in reason things can be changed to make the membership feel like they are a part of it, that they can make some changes!! I did some pokin around at PT and found that things are somewhat similar when it comes down to the nuts and bolts of it all. I feel this site does offer more bell and wistle features. I think in time it will come, the PT community has been around for some time, it going to be hard to match, but I will give it a run........

Tim, I can tell you why most don't come here. Most people on PT talk about imports more so than other Fords. PT has been a UBB for just over a year, FF two months. People are use to going there and getting information. It's a one stop source for your Probe, MX-6, and 626 needs .
My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.
Tim, its not gonna happen overnight. We were all used to going to PT, and all the information we needed was on the site. Lot of people, it was always fresh, you could always find what you were looking for. Plus the main people on PT know each other from meets, and from local clubs. I dont know if you noticed that the probers are relatively younger than the rest of you, Im only 20 myself, so the majoriity on PT is kids that dont care about Fords. They only bought their Probe cuz they liked how it looked.
This place is a little different. Theres a lot more diversity here, different models, different age groups... Do you really want to turn the probe section into ProbeTalk 2?
FF is doing great so far in my opinion. Lets not try to become PT2 on the Probe forums, lets keep it unique, keep it different. There are a lot of things that I like better here, but PT has its advantages too. I think the membership will continue to grow here, and eventually everyone will come over and check FF out.
As soon as the weather gets better the interest will rise as well once everyone gets out and starts to play with their cars again. This is kind of a dead season.
But the main point is I dont think you need to compete with ProbeTalk, cuz this board is different. Dont orry though, I think the probers are coming just give them some time...
