Re: New Member Notice Discussion
How about this for a suggestion, we send everyone a pm stating that they must please introduce themselves so we know who is who and what vehicle you drive etc, if you are looking for a syncro let us know, post a wanted add, some other lurkers out there may want to sell there syncro's and that way you can find what you are looking for, there are also a few of us who trade in syncro's but i do not always put everything i have for sale on the syncro site as most people her are syncro owners already, that said i have sold 2x syncro's to guys who have already got syncro's and wanted a 2nd vehicle.

its is not about post numbers but about being involved, this is a very hard call to make as the forum moderators and that is why we have had a poll about it, we also had long and hard decisions about this, there is no point in having 10 000 members that do nothing, rather have 200 that are involved.

as for overseas members, yes the Braais etc don't concern you but the syncro related stuff does, and maybe someday you will come and visit Sa and will join us on a Saamtrek or holiday to kruger park, a few sa syncro owners have been to the syncro 20 and 25 years events and i personally have been to Van fest for their syncro event with Russel,

post pictures of your syncro so when we see a syncro some where we know who you are, even if you are from overseas, i plan to got on a holiday to Aus some time to visit family, both in Perth and Brisbane and would love to meet a few syncro owners if possible, but if we don't know who and where you are from it is hard to to that. i just need to make enough money out of you syncro owners to do this :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

but i must say this topic has at least brought a few lurkers out, and maybe they will participate a little more now, lets get everyone involved. Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin

this is still a growing forum that has outgrown our expectations by 100% so lets keep it going with participation from all. there was a lot of resistance to the"new" ie this forum from a lot of the old forum members but a few have come across and are participating here as well as there as a lot of us do.

The forum is her to benefit us all, even if your contribution is small and is a tip on some thing you bought for camping that is great or a waste of time . let us know.

for example on that, i have a customer, elderly gentleman that built his own camper module for in his syncro with water heaters and basins, pull out kitchen and storage etc the materials to do this cost him in excess of R45k, surely everyone would like to see what he did etc, but he is the lurker type so unless id the the post you will never see it, and it is an awesome set up for 2x people.

also it is hard to BBM with out a Blackberry :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: suppose i need to get one then

I may be a mechanic, but i can't fix stupid
Bad planning on your part does not make your issue an crisis to me
Bad workmanship by other garages does not entiltle you to better rates at me
Syncro, syncro , syncro and more syncro, this is the syncro way of life
