As meaningful as it may be, it still doesn't show a whole LOT of activity. I'm not saying we should have nothing but BS and unwanted topics, but something more would be nice to have, even if they aren't as meaningful as they could be. If a place doesn't look really active, people won't come to it. That is how .net is doing so well, all the random stuff they have going on at all times of the day is what is attracting members, not the good people or knowledgeable information.

This would be something the staff would have to agree on as well as the head Admin would have to allow me some sort of access to the main page to start doing something like that.

I'm just tossing out ideas... what about professional networking?

I figure a lot of us are in different fields. Might be cool for us to connect at a professional level, share job openings, trade/offer reduced priced services (for instance, the web and graphic design stuff), etc.

On the other forums I visit regularly they have had things like photo games, photography contests, and a thread about what you have done on your vehicle that day is one of the most popular ones I've ever seen.

More off topic chat could potentially bring more people to chime in on the other sections.

Ok guys, lets keep the ideas rolling. What do you want to see different or updated, or better overall for YC? I need some more feed back. If you're not comfortable telling in here, PM me. I'd like for there to be fun stuff for people to do while they are here (again I know this is off topic, but still would be nice).

We have a lot of great knowledge and information on the boards and we do have a lot of new members searching before asking questions (which is what I like to see), so lets see if we can't get some words from our new members and see if we can get some of these guys that have been on for months or years without posting anything yet, to post .

Picture threads are always popular. Maybe try reviving a dead or creating a new member thread (reboot). Or pics of you doing your favorite activity, working on cars, etc.

Cool idea. A few of the forum members who are on Instagram post some pretty sweet stuff. It would be fun to see that kind of stuff here as well.

I'm relatively new, but one of the things I look forward too is seeing the "Cobalt of the Month" cars. What about something similar, but not competition. Like a "Featured member of the week." Pics of the member (if they want) and their car, and info about them. Maybe a short interview with cobalt and general questions. I personally would like reading and seeing that, and it would help everyone learn a little more about each other on a personal level.

Second time this has been suggested. Maybe we need to get thus off the ground.
