Do you have any good ideas that may help this place become the most active Cadillac web site online? If so, please let me know. I'm going to make every effort to make this place THE place to go for FAST answers to important questions.
Sal, I would suggest another attribute on the left under the screen name: Vehicle. Nissanforums.com does this and this helps out a lot. You can tell easily what someone drives w/o them having to put it in a signature, etc.
Great idea. Thank you.. vBulletin is coming out with their next MAJOR upgrade very shortly. I may wait until this upgrade to make modifications like this.. But, I'll look into it as soon as I can.. Probably tonight.. I love this suggestion.. But, once we upgrade to 3.0, we'll lose all our specials features... So.. Let me see how difficult it is.. If it's easy, which I think it is, it's no problem...
Just for the record, I want to indicate the names of the forums you mentioned on the GM site..
Northstar (performance, maintenance, etc.)
Pushrod (performance, maintenance, etc.)
Entertainment Mods (stereos, DVDs, etc.)
Suspension Tech (lowering kits, shocks, etc.)
Service Information (advise for dealer visits, etc.)
Body Mods (ground effects, fog lights, etc.)
Kill Stories (obvious)
For Sale (obvious)
Suggestion Box (suggestions on improving the forum)
I'm going to have to figure out a good way to get all these forums going without going overboard.. I can have SubForums here - so that may make this process very easy...
I would say the fewer forums the better, like Bruce said on the gmforums.com site. Over on Nissanforums, you'd get lost in the multitudes of forums they have. Less really is more. I'm no expert on these things, but that seems to be what works well. I was on the GMforums site before they revamped it and there were about 20 Caddy forums, and few were used. I think combining some of the forums will keep it more concise and easy to organize.

P.S. Nice web site.. You build that? That Seville is very nice, too.. The interior kinda reminds me of my ETC. Nice 'n clean.. But, I had the '95 - before the update.
Thanks. Yep...built it myself, over years and years. If you notice, it's the same as my '84 Cutlass, which was my first car (in '95). I sold it in Nov. 2001 to get the Cadillac, but I kept the webpage format since I think it works really well. That's certainly been an evolution of the art.
Yeah, the site looks great.. You definitely have some designer in you.. It's rare you see a homepage look like that.. You know..
As for the smileys.. There's probably a modification somewhere that would make this possible - but I don't know of it.. Which ones don't you like? Maybe I'll just remove them and see if people complain.. I doubt they will..
Hi Fleetwood SS! Welcome aboard! Actually, the Fleetwood section has been combined with the DeVille section for the time being.. Once things start taking off and we've got a lot of action, we'll probably seperate things more. But for now, while things are just getting started, we want to keep the forums as unintimidating as possible. Too many forums tend to scare new comers away...
