Well? What's your opinion? We'd like to know...

LOL Yeah, I joined it, but I didn't really do anything with it. I really like the idea! I guess I just haven't had time to have fun with it... LOL... And NICE trick with the username thing, at first I really thought you wrote this thread just for me! LOL :bouncy:

I'm assuming everyones username changes in the title from their view. This is a pretty cool forum feature I've never seen anywhere before. Interesting. Anyway...

At first I thought, great another myspace knockoff. But I like the way it interacts with forums like this one. I haven't been spending much time online since I'm pretty busy now, so I haven't really explored it much. I got a bit confused on making an image into my profile pic, so either making the help section more visible or making it more obvious how to do things would be nice.

Haven't had the opportunity (read: time) to really look at it.

So far, I think zoints is pretty cool. I have been playing with the program a lot. There seems like a lot of special things you can do once you learn it well enough. I am probably the only one without a myspace account so to me this stuff was foreign. Love the way you set this thread up it should work to get everyone to respond.

Oh sure, put me in the spotlight. Well honestly I haven't taken a very long look at it. I'm one of those people who hate to frivolously create accounts all over the Internet. I like to do things only with a purpose.

I see a lot of good things being said so I'll take a closer look.

I have not signed up for it and don't really intend to. Since this is the case I think that the pink advert is annoying and the feature seems ot be 'over-sold' on the site.

Ok, I'm signed up now. I don't really know what the purpose is. I guess it's nice to have a private community for the board where we can socialize. Photos are helpful. I don't know how much I'll use it but I do see some value in the feature.

Boombotz; I on;y just got a MySpace account last week so I could look at someone elses. I will never use it.

not quite sure i need another thing to burn time on, but it looks interesting.

I might try it out, but that means I have to take pics of my car or else my profile will be a little lame. This means I have to do work and I am waaaaaay to lazy for any of that right now

Why's the spotlight on me? I made one, but I haven't actually done anything with it... I gotta change that soon.

The name in the subject line changes depending on who you are, which personally I find a little creepy.

Things will get more interesting, for us, when you can easily create a "CarDomain" type page... I do believe there will be a template available soon...

Damn that thread title is scary. I am not into any "online social netowrk" thingie. Too much other sh*t to do in life than make 9374 friends over the internet for me.

I feel as if i have to post after reading the title.
If i was a vendor i would do that and say something like (your name here) I have a new mod for you!!!

But Zoints has potential i am at work and cant make my page pretend to do work and be all over this forum all at the same time.

SpeedyArizona
08-08-06, 10:00 AM
I'm confused...VERY confused....

EDIT: Ok, that title was a bit frightening! Special thread for me....never is going to happen:D!

Patrick7997
08-08-06, 10:36 AM
lol Speedy..... I had the same thought.... if anyone ever gave a cr*p what I thought, it would be a first......

A little creepy at first, though, to be sure..... heh heh, especially since our esteemed administrator is annoyed with me right now, after my last suggestion.... I found it hard to believe he all the sudden wanted my opinion, at this juncture... heh heh... gave me a good laugh.

As far as Zoints, I'm soooo not getting the hang of it, I can't even reply to the people who have written messages to me, so on a daily basis, I'm probably adding to the list of people who are mad at me, due to my absurd inability to reply to their rather nice messages.... so, blanket apology to those who wrote to me, I'm sorry. I can't figure out how to reply.

08-08-06, 11:18 AM
HAHAHAHHAA!! Pretty funny Sal!!!!!

I like Zoints. It has a lot of great features that AOL doesn't have. Just needs more members for there to be more action. It also doesn't have the problems myspace does :lildevil:

What exactly is the zoints thing. Is it like myspace?

It's similar to MySpace but more inline with "forums" like ours here...

Great website, but nobody I know is on there, only you people lol.

And how did you do the title? I really want to know!

08-08-06, 12:39 PM
At first I thought everyone was really interested in what I think. Now I find out it's a mirror thread that shows whoever is looking at it in the title.......

I was gonna tell you but I can't get the words out between the choking and tears Sal......

I'm going to MySpace again! :crying:

Myspace :yup: :banghead:

I still come here every so often to read the latest posts in the Fleetwood section.

But today I noticed that I had Zoints and I read Sals headline lure and decided to post.

So do I really have Zoints already? Or is this merely a ploy to get me to sign-up? :confused:

Well Sal you did a good job at tricking people to sign up. Maybe I should you as my marketing team.

What do I think of Joints???

Ok Destroyer, now that you ask...

Hey what you do in the privacy of your home/castle is your own business. As long as it is just recreational.

I will acknowledge that in a number of instances a Joint or Joints will relieve pain and has been proven to improve vision and reduce kimo nausea.

So I am passively for Joints especially if they improve your typing.

Sal,

What do I think about Zoints?!!!

It looks interesting, Iím sure my friends on this form would like to see pic of my STS, GTO or maybe a pic of my 3-year old helping me polish my STS with a STONE. :holycrap: Well almost I gave him a football tackle to the ground just before he did any damage. The only damage that was done was almost a heart attack for me.

Thanks,

Frank T

I woke up at 6:00 this morning, I drank my orange juice, came online and looked at this forum, I saw this thread and it scared the hell out of me. Then I woke up a little more and I realized this wasn't specifically for me lol. :thepan:

I suffer from occasional pain in my zoints. Ibuprofen helps.

I'm always looking for ways to make this place unique.. The first thing failed - it was that Auctions area - which is still here. :p Then it was the images section - which is common but works pretty nicely - then the Classifieds - which is also pretty common.. Then Zoints - which is something new and not fully developed yet - and now there's the video section.. Forums can get boring after awhile so I want to keep bringing in new things to keep it fresh...

Sal it's not easy to use for one thing and hardly any activity. With the opportunities at the lounge and with PMs you basically get the same thing.

How many members are on role now? I think I only got about 3 alerts to zoints mail.
