Hi All,

Several people have suggested the addition of some new sub-forums.  Looking to see what folks might think. 

Note: If you add an option, your name will be displayed as the suggestor.

Thanks!

-Dave

Voted for 4Ephemera - but the name is wrong - ephemera stand for something that lasts in a short period of time. I know several people that still lives in the fifties and will do so until they die (hmmm maybe to rough, read "decease" instead).

Perfect title would be "Lost in the fifties and trying hard to stay there"

Currently, there are five threads under Members' Rides containing lots of rare pictures of our FL cars. Threads are in this format: [Make of car] Info and Pic's. They deserve their own sub-forum, as they really don't fit the current the current forum (Members' Rides). Maybe relocate them under Non-Technical Discussion ? <br /><br /> Ron

We have a member builds area. Or at least that is what I thought the member's rides section was for.

I like the idea of a 50's lifestyle section. But I think Lawrence's ideas aren't that good.

As I've said before; this is Dave's forum, and Dave's rules.

A gardening and cooking section is a good idea! Lots of us are about to tiller up some plots for a garden. Cooking gets into BBQ sauces and such. BBQ sauces differ a lot all around the world. Big M turned me onto to some stuff and I turned him onto some also.

 

Also I traded some BBQ sauces with a mate in the UK and now HP Sauce stays at my house!

I also added "Christine Section". That way a lot of Christine crap doesn't have to be all around the forum, it can stay in one area. Seems to be a lot of Forward Look people that don't like "Christine" and they don't have to see it so much then unless they just want to torture themselves.

will you only be able to vote one time?  or can you add votes to sections suggested after you vote? (probably a better idea)

"4Ephemera" is the Forwardlook Lifestyle, by another name.

You can delete the word "Christine" in the word filter. You can have the "correct" guys nail the car as incorrect but you are still left with this fact:

Christine is a car that all of you know and it IS a Forward Look car. It will never go away and needs it's own section, right here on Forward Look.

Instead of using 4Ephemera, I would put it more into layman's terms and just call it a "Forward Look Lifestyle" or "Fifties Lifestyle". Otherwise.. I like that category. I, too, think that there should be a Christine specific forum.

i admit, i like to eat.  i think "ancient recipes" is ridiculous, but there are honestly some great foodie tips to pass around.  is it forward look?  no.  can you enjoy it with your forward look?  absolutely!

i don't know where it would fit but it would be nice to have a section of frequently asked questions and answers with how to walkthroughs. it would make it easier to find quick answers than using the search function.

I like this idea. 

The same questions pop up over and over from folks that are new to FL-era cars. Examples: How to remove rear brake drums, which windshields interchange, how to remove interior door handles, etc. 

We don't even have to rewrite what has already been written a dozen times. Just provide links to existing threads where this is discussed in depth.

I like the idea of a "Life in the 50's and & 60's" section too since I would assume anyone interested in these cars would also be fascinated to some degree by the culture that brought them about.It would be sort of like Forward Looks "time machine",a window into the wonder years of the past when the American Dream was still alive and really meant something.

I think "wizard" and "jessica" are right though,the name needs to be reworked,but as has been pointed out,its your site and you can name it whatever you like.

Some of the other suggestions are obviously ridiculous and have no relation to these cars or the era.They did make me laugh though! especially the reciepes of the 1700's..why stop there,why not a section on "famous comb makers of the old west","A pictorial guide to the brothels visited by Howard Hughes" or "Corn Dog Sticks from around the Globe"

somewhat unrelated but is it possible to have the first sentence or two pop up when you mouse over a thread title? this can be handy to quickly see a little more description of the thread.

it would be great if the wiz's " oldies music calender " could be edited and moved up the list a few spots outta the nether , netherland . not to censor anyone but to just keep it music of the 50's ... 60's only . still allowing more of the
same music posts by anyone who would care to contribute .---------------------------------------------------------------later

I assume the "50's Lifestyle" area would have seperate sub-sections for Architecture,music,Television & Movies,etc. Maybe Wizards music thread could be moved there in the music section.

The reason it stopped was that the publisher stopped use of the material - now it seems to be ok to use it again. If I should start it up, then it might be best to put it in the correct sub-dictory.
