WOW - What happened?

Recommended Posts

seems like a bad social strategy to me... I've PMed him, I've publicly made threads about the issues and all.. he doesn't want to listen so meh

 

Exactly that's how I see it

If he doesn't want to put out the effect to save his own forum then why should we ?

When was the last time you seen a post or a thread from Loz himself trying to keep this place active ?

His happy to go and make hoodies and shit to sell.

Why save his forum when he doesn't even care about saving it himself ?

He done the damage himself with all the stupid changes he made, the strick nazi rules and moderators he put in place. Now look where that got you? All the active members who actually kept this place alive have been banned, hell I've even been banned myself and I'm a fucking moderator.

He killed it himself

So if it's gonna die then so be it

I don't blame it on Facebook either

If this place stayed the same as the old days with out the changes this place would still be alive even tho people moved on from Silvia's I reckon they would still stick around

The rules were way to strick couldn't even have a laugh with out copping a warning

Fuck I remember at one point we werent even allowed to post a comment in the pics thread no discussion pics only

Hahahahaha Fucken stupid which ever moderator thought of that

Power trip much ?

Now look! Your be lucky to even get a reply or a comment quoting a picture posted in that thread

What a fucking dumb cunt that moderator was ( not mentioning names but I think you all know who I'm talking about )

I always tried to be the care free moderator that let you guys do what ever you wanted but some of the others were on a massive power trip and now those moderators don't even come on here any more

They helped kill this place and now left it for dead

 

I'm not sure if any of you are a member of performance forum

But that place hasn't had any major changes since a it's started and its rules are very loose it's pretty much a free for all over there and even with the introduction of Facebook that place is still alive with new posts and threads on a daily basis

I myself don't post much at all over there I just go over there to read because there ain't fuck all over here to read

 

END OF RANT

mate, rant well deserved!

 

the yester-decade of nissansilvia was great.. came here for a laugh, for some guides, for DIY, etc.. it was a wealth of knowledge.

Wow it has died in the ass. All the pics are gone! Such a wealth of information it once was here...and a great laugh too.

 

I hope this forum gets restored to its former glory. The SAU forums seem to be doing it right- simple forum, mobile app, etc

 

I've since moved on to different cars but I always find myself coming back to s-chassis. Gone are the days you could pick up a decent and clean s13/180 for 5k in Sydney

Looking to hopefully lock in some time to upgrade the forums in the next month or two...

 

As a community though, it's not up to me soley to bring life back to it, Hardtuned/NS was always a community and i'm looking for some guys that want to run with it and bring it back.

 

Also looking for people to help crank the FB/ Instagram etc. as well, which will hopefully drive some traffic back to the forums also .

 

Looking for input.

 

Am thinking of stripping all moderators / admins and building a new team based on people that are active and wanting to contribute.

 

Access will also be given to the Facebook & Instagram, because (As Johnny said) it is important that we crank the social media side as well

remove other brands/networks... they're all dead.. no one cares.. look at the last modified date

 

in NS, remove all the dead sub forums, totally useless.. no one cares

lifestyle, all the sub forums, just roll it into lifesttyle

 

re-index the forum.. show at least 200 threads, and re-index it.. so we sitll can use the top RHS search ... most people cbf going to google

Great Idea, I think everyone should make an effort to post their thoughts.

 

Forums:

 

General

Off Topic

Technical

Builds (street and motorsport in one)

For sale (cars and parts sub forum)

 

With time you can expand those if required.

Facebook page and insta ?

 

Mobile friendly software.

Rebrand it as Nissansilvia or Hardtuned, or somehow define it as a Silvia based forum.

 

Get mods like Dospipejohnnyloctitewhatever & Str8y

 

Generate interest with ?

 

Profit ?

part of the problem is probably due to low-ish numbers of the cars left. a good majority have been trashed out, crashed and scrapped

will all the pics work with a new upgrade?

with the social media stuff you need to post your own stuff not just copy the same stuff that all the others do. maybe do a members build of the month?

So are members willing to go out to meets and photograph cars? a lot of meets happen around SE Qld from cruises to track stuff. when ever i go interstate i try and get to a local event to see how others are still modifying their cars.

 

in regards to the number of cars left there are quiet a few out there. one of the best onevia's i have seen is local, the last bituman sprint i did there were 5 S chassis all of good quality.

 

 

good work kemp on the filter :thumb:

Cunts for all..!

 

I honestly think it can be revived with the right social strategy then have the right sponsors etc. (At a low fee of course) and very successful like Skyline Parts NSW or the likes of drift sales etc.. without all the horse shit and bullshit

Hahah fuck yeah this made my day 😂

 

I still come on here often. For me everything changed when the classifieds layout was merged and as mentioned the moderators gestapo rules.

 

I think an app would be good. Something easy that you can up load a pic from your phone, fix the technical articles and push the social media side of thing as well. My 2c
