These is mainly for Dan but I'm posting it publicly so other members can offer their thoughts on it.
I was wondering if an upgrade to more flexible software would be possible. I'm on quite a few forums and I've never come across such awful software. Everything requires extra effort to do, expansions seem limited, it's in a narrowcolumndown my screen and just generally much more difficult to use.
Others sites I know have FAQ type sections, virtual garages, photo albums, benefits forcontributorsto the site etc. This site just seems to use outdated software that offers little to us as a club.
I'm more than happy to do the upgrade and change myself so it wouldn't require anything from other forum users but the site seems to just be a large Google advert. Looking at the main page we have 3 sets of Google ads, a Ford dealership banner, hosting company and other sites all advertised which seems excessive to me when you consider there is only one small paragraph of actual content (and even then it's just a 'welcome to the club').
I propose a phpBB type board with a banner at the top and adverts throughout. It works on other boards and would actually make us feel like more a club than just random people who happen to drive the same caracrossEurope.
I think the recent post by me about people posting cars in their sigs and other members asking where the actual car pictures are reinforces this perspective I've held for a while now.
