Idea: I think we should have a separate section for V "meets / get-togethers"
There are times I would be willing to make a longer road trip to a further away meet.
General , Performance , Meet-N-Greets, Appearance Mods , Classifieds

Just an idea, but seems like we've got more meets showing up on the general section now.

It's not a bad idea, but I doubt it would get much traffic. Much like the regional forums we already have.

I think people would still post them in all the general discussions anyways now that I think about it

You guys want to try out a sticky thread for meets? idk how we could lay it out, but if anyone wants to give it a try, lmk. I'm open to try it and see how it works for you guys. Maybe list up all the V members that are local to certain sections?

Yup. We already have the regional forums and they dont get used very often. And I dont know how anyone else surfs the forums, but I know I just keep a tab opened to the general discussion forum and dont go elsewhere very often. If you posted a meet in a "meet and greet" forum, theres a good chance I'd never see it. A sticky thread to announce meet and greets might be good, but I think it would still be best to keep those conversations in their own threads. Otherwise you might have simultaneous discussion of three different meets and that would just get confusing.

Those aren't V specific though are they? I've never been and if they aren't V specific I never will. I could care less about a stock CTS and his dubs yo.

Separate thread for each event, make each a sticky until 1 week after the event/GTG.

And, please put the location in the title...and not "Tristate GTG this weekend"...to find someplace in the tread that this person's Tri is Alabama, Mississippi and Tennessee and this weekend was a month ago.

I can't believe I've owned my V for a little over 2 years and still not one GTG :( other than V days...which ...where is that thread??? Luke doing the next V Day soon?

The sticky until after meet is a great idea. The location in the title is completely necessary. If I were a mod I would delete the thread (without the info) and send the member a message. It would say "When you decide to stop being retarded and realize the US is larger than your area then you may have another thread". HUGE pet peeve of mine!

Maybe events should be sticky in each general forum, that way everyone see them. If it's a V meet, maybe it gets put in V1 and V2 forums as well?

Just my two pennies
