  View original topic: New additions to the Sticky/FAQS topics needed
Glenn Mon Dec 26, 2011 9:56 am

If you know of any topics that should be included in the Sticky/FAQS topics at the top of each forum, please tell that forum's moderator so it can be reviewed and included.

Please provide the topic's link and any additional info you think is important.

Many times the same questions get asked over and over and over again and being able to point someone to an existing topic will help reduce clutter on the site. It also saves members from searching and jumping from topic to topic to get the info. it's "one stop shopping".

The Samba is only as good as we make it and we all need to help in making it better.

Only works if you refer posters to it instead of adding to the clutter of beat up topics :wink:

PLEASE Glenn, this topic topic in the accessories forum seems like at least once a week, someone posts an inquiry about the authenticity a KDF groundbreaking lapel pin.

I made that into a Sticky so it's the official Badge thread

i have seen on other forums--yes i visit other forums--that they will have a whole forum dedicated to "introductions" or "post yourself" or whatever.
i don't know that we need a dedicated forum...maybe each forum could have it's own "intro" sticky.
another thing i was thinking is that each forum could have a "my first VW" or "i'm new to (model specific)" where you would find general info about VWs and your model in particular.
maybe just a title change/reorganization of the FAQ stickies that the forums already have?
IDK, just throwing out some ideas :)

the only other thing i can think of is for the vanagon & bay bus forums to have engine swap stickies.
i personally don't care for conversions. i like the cars (and their engines) the way they left the factory.
it seems like a place is needed for these folks to discuss their EJVorTDITec swaps.
there are currently 5 topics in the vanagon forum and one or two in the bay forum, i'm sure that deal with alternate powerplants.
it seems that the space these topics use could be better used for some threads on personal hygene or maybe some phish setlists or something :wink:

Yes, we don't have an intro forum or stickies but people often introduce themselves in a section and detail out their car to have a car thread.

I feel it's better this way so they can have a thread for their car too.

I don't have a problem with their being a swap Sticky but people want their own separate threads, this has come up in the past.

I think a diagnostic flow chart for the various common problems would help.
They used to be a common feature in repair books, and it is a standard in understanding any problem.

I will gladly add it if someone has one for me to post.
