PostSubject: OPINIONS NEEDED ON FUTURE OF WI240SX.COM   Tue Nov 29, 2011 9:00 pm

I have been asked about merging Wi240sx.com with Wituners.com (site is currently being built)

If we do this, it will IMPORT ALL THE MEMBERS, POSTS, ETC.

We would have our own section that would consist of
GENERAL CHAT
EVENTS
TECH
GARAGE/BUILDS
MULTIMEDIA
CLASSIFIEDS

so it would be just like coming on here, just you would go to a different site with the 240sx section.

The Wituners.com site also has this for every car make. so if you want to see something about a honda, or a Lexus, or a general car forum that works just as easy.

The moderators/admins will remain the same. as will the rules.

I just wanted to ask you guys what you thought about this before making any decisions as this isn't MY site it is OUR site.

Also, each section (say the Wi 240sx one) will have its own unique theme. using a V-Bulletin. so it will feel like its own site till you go to the home page of Wituners.

also with the each classified post in the 240sx section it will be put in the global wituners.com classifieds.

also it will still go by the name Wi240sx.com to take you to that section.

Interesting. I am a car enthusiast so I think it might be a good thing. But there will be pluses and minus's to doing this. The world is full of haters.

Do you have the option of trying it, and if you don't like it, going back to the way it is now? There is gonna be more dumbass bullshit, but as long as you don't mind me telling people to get fucked, we'll be fine.

There would still be a intro section as well yes. I was just a thought something i was considering i think it might be neat to get more traffic, but i like our own corner of the web.

why not just have them link to us instead of doing a full on merge? by doing that we will see more traffic but still remain independent. that is just an idea.

Sounds like a great idea. Then all the people that are on here that are into 240's and say honda's etc. have a place to find information on everything. Plus then it would open up our site to that many more people that are looking at geting into the 240 scene.

its a hard decision, like thefreack said, pluses and minuses if you do this...
a link to us would be dope, but if its going world wide? is it really wisconsin 240 then (i know we do have members in IL and such just saying)

if half the kids on hwy join up on that wituners how bad could that turn out
look at the driftx kid (we know he aint gonna read this haha)

but if it happens, id love to yell at some kids lol
bahahahhaha

WHAMMY!!!!!

By the sounds of it though each "section" of wituners would be its own fourm. Run by it's own set of mods etc. With that being said I'm pretty sure that it could be set up in such a way that a person could be blocked/banned from posting/viewing certain "sections" of the overall fourm based on the decisions of the mods that run each "section"

yea you could get banned or blocked, but its not gonna stop kids from trying to create an account to post inside of our section
unless you need some type of password, like on zilvia how you dont have permission to view it, but if it can go that way we may get less traffic...

i say see if we can get our own small section at the same time keep out site here.
idk im just a pawn in this big game of chess lol

what ever happens im sure ill go along with it up with it
im only on 2 forums. this and zilvia and i dont post on zilvia only buy parts lol

Hi guys, i will try to explain some more about wistuners. I was worried about the trash talking but there are ways around it if it does come to it. There is a specific section called Call Out, this subforum will be the only spot where one is allowed to trash talk to another, but hopefully nicely. There will be a huge amount of moderators, that will be in charge of specific forums. Also something i can add if trash talking starts, a specific group that can only access a specific part of the forum, like making a group called wi240sx and only these members can post or even view the 240 part of the forum. Other things Car Club support, Specialty sections like drifting, sound systems, lighting, drag racing, etc. and with these sections there will be a expert that can prove he really is one. They are there to ask questions, give suggestions, and post up how-to's and what to look for and so on. Every member will have their own Garage and Gallery where they can upload pictures of their vehicle and list what modifications they use. The forum will also have a track times list from 1/4 mile to rally racing. The forum isn't being made for any profiting or anything like so, the only ones that would pay would be vendors and really only like 5 dollars a month just to go to paying for the site and whatever extra would go to raffles or giving away t-shirts, like at car meets.

Here is a picture of what the parent site would look like, remember every section will be unique to it's self, own administrators, mods, theme, topics, sub forums, classifieds, events. Then under say classifieds there will be universal parts, general items, and cars for sale. Something else I like to do is when i was doing wisrts.com i made a topic "submit pictures of your car for rotating banner" where the members sent me pictures of their vehicles and for everytime someone clicked on a page someone elses car will be up.

I value everyone's opinion love or hate, also if anyone has something they would like to see please let me know! I am making this for you guys!! and yes wi240sx will be backed up to a file so if you guys do not approve it will be restored.





ohh and here is my car :p still under construction.

I think it would be a benifit for events like races, get togethers, and classifieds.

lol traphikcod4, i hope thats over thinking it, but I can definitely see something like this maybe happening but if it would go to that extreme i think the section would just be token away. Also i am not a big fan of banning it doesn't really teach obedience, just makes the person more angry. I could see possibly see giving them a limit for a week to only seeing a few forums.

Also here is a pic of the specialties section.....

And how does your "expert" for each section prove they are, as you say, an expert?

Experts would have to prove they are good at what they do by showing past or current works aswell as can explain basics of their specialty and when asked something more advanced can answer it and back it up. Example i have a sound expert on the fourm helping me test stuff and giving opinions.

Some topics he put up, Sticky: Car Audio 101 under construction, OMT, Official Media Thread post photos and videos here!!, The bangin'est songs around.

added content like

"Please be mature. Humility is key.

This thread is here to act as a general purpose troubleshooting, and thinktank knowledge-bass (get it Razz) If you need help, this is the place to ask.


GENERAL INFO JUNK:

Before posting here. Search on

Why you don't need a capacitor.


How to install your amp by yourself


If you are looking for subs, but dont know how they sound. Check out the video section on


Good place to research Amplifiers...


Also check out


---------------

Great places to get good products at low prices.


---------------

Terms to know:

RMS: The "real" amount of power your subs are getting, or, the amount that your subs need to run at optimal performance, so to speak. When an amp says 2000 watts MAX, it doesn't run at that. You need to look at RMS power.

Ohms: Basic unit of resistance. 1ohm=1volt/1amp.

Wiring: When people say to "wire subs down to X amount of ohms", it means to use your resistors (voice coils) to change resistance. Amplifiers run at different power (watts) at different resistances (ohms). When resistance goes up, power goes down. This is illustrated by the equation P=V^2/R.

Forms of wiring: Series and Parallel.

Series: Having two or more resistors, take the positive from one, and a negative from the other, wire them together, then wire the remaining positive and negative to the corresponding terminals. Equation=R1+R2+R3... etc. When two resistors of equal resistance are wired in series, resistance doubles.

Parallel: Having two or more resistors, take both/all positives and wire them all together to the positive terminal. Same thing with negatives. Equation= 1/((1/r1)+(1/r2)...). When two resistors of equal resistance are wired in paralllel, resistance halves.

Voice coils: The positive and negative terminals on your subs. Dual voice coil= two pairs of positive and negative terminals.

SQ: Sound quality, a build designed to preform more on the side of sounding good over being loud.

SPL: Sound pressure loudness, a build designed to be loud, and specifically meter good at events, as Termlab units measure the amount of pressure created rather than just by sound loudness."
