Semper,

no, but I see Jethro every year, at my dads family reunion.
Come to think of it, he shows up at moms family reunion too.

He drives a fine automobile, wooodoggie!

Go figure?

Hey an atomotive section sounds pretty good. You got another vote.

I'm not a car enthusiast, so I don't really get why we would need a whole forum devoted to it. Would it be about auto-conspiracies? I just don't get it.

Also, why has Springer reduced the amount of votes needed to get this forum up?

I'm just very confused. Can someone please explain?



ps, this is not a vote, yet.

I like this concept, and am posting here to cast in my vote that I do want to have an Automotive Forum on ATS. Thanks to everyone who's contributing to this cause.

I doubt that any answer would satisfy you, if you don't already know.

It's a car thang, you woudn't.... Oh, never mind.


Would it be about auto-conspiracies?


The proposed Automotive Forum would be a part of BTS, which is the fun section of the ATS universe and has nothing to do with conspiracies.


I just don't get it.


See answer above.


Also, why has Springer reduced the amount of votes needed to get this forum up?


Springer, being a an automotive enthusiast himself, has stated that he likes the idea of the forum, but that the three amigos need positive assurance that such a forum will fly before they go to all the trouble to code it and all.

Springer reduced the number of votes from one astronomical number to a lesser astronomical number, because of member pressure, or whining, I think he called it, in order for the forum to be considered.

One million votes would probably do the trick, but even one million votes would only guarantee consideration of the request, not its implementation.


I'm just very confused. Can someone please explain?


To go beyond the automotive interest component, I will explain some of the protocol involved in implementing member ideas.

The Automotive Forum is a project supported by the Deny Ignorance Steering Committee (DISC).

Members offer suggestions to DISC members either by the thread above or by other means and DISC considers the matter in a private forum in concert with admin. Many ideas never make it out of committee because of various problems with the implementation of the suggestion or because admin feels that the suggestion is not appropriate. Sometimes a suggestion must be broached several times before enough support coalesces to make the issue worth our while and even then no one is obligated to support the cause.

Change is slow on ATS sometimes, but the views of the membership are important and receive all due attention in committee, even when they are not ultimately supported and as I said earlier, support sometimes comes, but only after several efforts.

This is how the Automotive Forum became an item of interest on ATS. One member made one suggestion that went nowhere. Another member eventually offered the same suggestion and enough support had emerged to make the endeavor worthwhile and so some DISC members and some board members have taken up the cause and are having fun with the effort, even if it turns out to be for naught.

Are you getting the picture?


ps, this is not a vote, yet.


Too late. You already signed the petition by posting here!

Initially, it was my intention that people would "sign" the petition only once, as is the custom almost everywhere regarding petitions. Then it sort of got out of hand and I thought, what the hey!

There are other ways to support the proposed forum, which I outlined here:

Here ya go, semper:

All right, so I guess this is another vote.

But, Grady, all I want to know is: who is the familiar looking geezer in your current avatar?

edit:

Doh, now it's changed again. I meant the '70s type with the sidies...

Is this the one you're speaking of?

If so, that's David Hobbs.
