This Forum is Dead - we need to change it.

Post by brocky41 » Fri Feb 25, 2022 11:02 pm

Just starting a topic on this.

IMO we need to change to the same style of forum as the oldschool one - does anyone know the costs / work involved in moving everything over etc.
That style means you can give likes etc which might help people to continue to post, as most threads dont even get answers.

Just a thought

I hate Facebook but it’s the only way to get posts/ info for motivation. I’d be keen to know who even still comes onto this site?

Imo changing to old school platform probably won't make a lot of difference. The have all makes of car which gives a much bigger base a people to post, and even then probably the majority of post aren't related to cars. This forum is the largest collection of Datsuns and there history in NZ and still useful for finding ways of fixing or modifying unique to the laws in this country, surely still a worthwhile asset to the datsun community. Looking at other sites like 1200.com that info is presented in an easy to navigate way, possibly hard work to organize things like that here I guess.
I look at Facebook and think yeah great and all but hopeless to search for info (I hate having to ask dumb questions on there) and can anyone be certain that they will keep all that data for free forever?, look at the whole Photobucket debacle.
