I personally like all the sub-forums. It makes it easy to find things. Each to their own I suppose...
Agreed. The more sub-forums the better. Organization is a great thing.
I'd agree if they worked, but ever since going from about 5 to 25+, people haven't been able to put anything in the right forums, so it completely defeats the purpose. The original broader scope of the limited number of subforums significantly improved the odds of threads being in the right place, even if it did mean that audio and suspension threads ended up in the same subforum.
I blame the search function more than anything. Lackluster at best. Also need to remove the 4 letter minimum for search words.
I will agree wholeheartedly, the search function has been ineffective for years.
HID/LED thread (Projectors)
HID/LED thread (Non-projectors)
Speaker upgrade (Non-bose)
Adding subwoofer (Bose)
I'm aware that there are certain threads that kind of give info similar but there's very few step by step illustrations. For example, I'm shocked that there isn't "How To" write ups on:
-Front end leveling spacer install
-Bose and non Bose Speaker upgrade installs
-Subwoofer install for Bose and non-Bose systems
-Catch Can install
-HID/LED headlight install
-Different aftermarket exhausts and intakes
This is all threads in the first 4 pages of recent threads in the Lighting/Audio forum. They're not quite labeled or laid out as "how to's", but a lot of what become "how to" threads don't often start that way.
We did have a group in the past that was creating a listing of threads for the first gens (How To Index
), but this hasn't been updated with anything since before the second gen launched, I think.
Also, that little button to the right of the "quote" button will allow you to quote multiple posts at once, rather than making 4 separate posts in a row.
