    I move that we start an affiliate site, and fill it with the whiniest little bitches humanely imaginable. Then spoon feed them with propaganda. We shall call this site ViperValley.

    I suppose I could get Slick Willie from RSI to sit in a dunk tank at the next North Texas Viper Club get together. $100 bucks for three soft ball throws. There'd be a line of participants from Plano to Lewisville. We'd be out of debt in 8 hrs.

    Right next to the dunk tank we could have a tent that said "Man Eating Fish!" outside the entrance. Inside the tent I could be sitting at a table eating a tuna fish sandwich and threaten to kill anybody who told what they saw. $5.00 entry fee per person.

    You guys are hilarious. I guess if there would be a freak show I'd be the tattooed lady.7f5f3fc46bd32121590b6ec869564ae6.jpg
    I could get the patrons drunk and give the members from the other site a tattoo that read VCA forever. Hahahahahaha

    My initial thoughts are:

    1)There's an "ASK VCA HQ" on the Forum page. It's a mix of visitor and member questions / comments. Internal business (sometimes contentious) should be "moderated" over to a thread in the members only section. I noted a Question /Suggestion box exists in Sub Forums, but viewing is limited to admins. There should be an open "ASK VCA/HQ" thread for all to see in the members section.

    For example,
    - in the open forum page "ASK VCA HQ", questions like, "what does it cost to join? what can I expect after joining? can I join if I drive a Hyundai?" should be addressed.
    - in the members only forum, "ASK VCA HQ" should deal with "where's my magazine?, where's the finance report?, etc. Those are the types of questions all members would be interested in, would enable communication and keep internal concerns internal to the club.

    2) It would be nice if there were more sub-forums (categories) created in the members only forum. It's currently a mix of many topics and unruly to use. Some additional organization is needed.


    3) Many of the tricks and tips available in the forums are valuable. The general forum is a great place to share stuff like "ACR versus Z06" and discussions about new options like colors, etc.
    When it comes to things like "how to find and fix wind noise, setting your Gen 3 up for the track, lifter adjustment specifications, etc., that stuff is really valuable and not available everywhere. Limiting this information to members would provide incentive for others to join and add some level of satisfaction to those who paid to get to the members only page. As I say this, I realize this is going to require a very dedicated moderator on a white horse to screen the posts and determine where they belong. I'm not an IT guru, so somebody else will have to chime in on how to make that process manageable.

    There are a lot of smart people in this club. I'm sure many others have ideas to add. I'm gonna be quiet now because I know somebody's counting posts.... : )


    I'm gonna go drive my Viper now.
    Making the club website MORE restrictive will drive away potential members. And we already went through the whole "hide the negative posts" thing....didn't work out to well for the club. Personally, the only reason I am even considering rejoining VCA is due to the fact that it is more open and transparent. I was here through the bad old years, and myself and a couple of others posting in this thread had a hand in the purging of the a-holes that ran this club into the ground. So from experience, the website needs to be MORE open, not regressive. Driving away traffic will also drive away Sponsors/Advertisers, whereas more traffic makes it more worthwhile for sponsors to spend their money and time here.

    We'll see how things progress. I want to see how granger's ideas and suggestions are treated. See how open and transparent the new Nat Officers are.

    Got a chance to talk to Bill and Janey White yesterday afternoon. Incredible people who have been around the Viper community for so long and have done so much. They were honest and quite frank with every question I had regarding VCA finances etc. The situation is more grim than I imagined, but Bill and Janey are so passionate with the car this club is built around and are truly motivated to save the heritage of the VCA. All bull$hit and drama aside, VCA and all the hard work that SO MANY people on both sides performed shouldn't be laid to waste because of the actions of a few selfish yo yo's. That being said, I realize the part I've played making this club unattractive to some people and have made a commitment to curb those those types of behavior. I emphasize the word "curb"....not to be confused with "end" or "eliminate". So, for less money than it costs to feed one starving child in China, you could get a membership here and help save the heritage of the club that started it all.
