We had dedicated sections for each vehicle make that was broken down to engine performance, tranny, interior, exterior...etc. There were on average 6 - 10 subforums under each vehicle. They were condensed to the one or two section that are there now. WHY? Well they were there for over 1 year with little to no response in them. People that wanted to mod came and went when the areas would not grow and participation was low.
So what will it take? I want to see the areas popular. I want to see them busy, but that takes time. I know that a site does not grow over night. I am not expecting it too. BUt given over one years time we did not sustain enough growth in the areas to see leaving them up unmoderated and unused. Hence my reasons for merging them into the general area for each vehicle.
Now if there was an expressed interest from a group of F150 fans or f100 fans or any others for that matter that wanted to move from a mailing list to here or even from another site that can not sustain the costs of running their own forums, then I would gladly accept them over here and work with them to make the areas grow.
If you know of someone or a site like that then send them here. We always like growth and we are here to help the Ford Community.
