This may seem VERY presumptous seeing as I am BRAND new to the boards...but...wouldn't the site make more sense and be less chaotic if it were arranged by model? because when I enter the appearance section (for example) I am looking for discussions on Aleros since that is what I own and really am just overwhelmed and discouraged when I see all the topics dealing with 80's cutlasses, Intrigues and whatever else and need to start skimming and sorting through.
While this may not be perfect couldn't the board be set up like this?

NEWS (keep this the same)
--Announcements
--Events
--Introductions

DISSCUSSION (some of the larger categories could be sub divided by year)
--Alero
--Aurora
--Cutlass and 442
--Full size
--Intrigue
--Starfire
--Toronado
--any others I probably forgot
then within each of these could be the setup currently in use
(appearance, audio, general, maintenence, performance) but give OFF TOPIC its own section shown below

CLASSIFIEDS
--For sale
--Wanted

OFF TOPIC
--General
--Other Brands (of auto manufacturers)

TECH SUPPORT

That's just my rough idea obviously subject to review & changes..or rejected :wink:
Thanks

Hi Coldfire, hello everyone,

Welcome to TOC.

I don't think "presumptous" is a strong enough word.

Considering this is an Olds Board, and much of the information it contains applies to several (if not all) platforms, it would only transfer your inconvenience to everyone else.

As TOC grows larger, I'm confident Brando will make adjustments as they are needed.

Click here and type "Alero" in the top space. If that's not enough, you can also type "Alero" in here.

Regards, Norm

Fine I'll make my own forum...with blackjack, and hookers! Just kidding.
In my defense I did say that it was just an idea, but I'm planning on being around for awhile so I guess I'll just get used to it and put up/shut up.... for now :wink: mwah ha ha!
