    I'm just SO HAPPY that admin sees fit to listen to two of our most articulate posters; Fun4... and Wireburner.

We are planning on merging the boards, it is true, except that "projects" and "motorsports" will remain two separate categories. So, in essence, it WILL remain much the same as it is today, although if you want to post on one board or another you will be able to do so without having two logins, two accounts, etc. Having the two boards completely separate, as it is now, creates confusion and lots of double work (and needless double-costs!) so we planned pretty much from the beginning to at least merge the boards in some way. If you'd like to just bookmark yourself right into the projects category, you can do that and you won't even notice a difference, beyond creating a new bookmark. We're not making large-scale changes...I think you'll appreciate the positives that will come from merging the boards, once you see how similar it will be, just more simple/easy.

    What was up more for debate was creating categories or adding other functions as we were performing this merge. All of this "keep it the same" talk has spoken loud and clear from both boards, but especially projects. We were hoping to create approximately 6 categories to help organize and help you to more easily find information. From what we've read in responses, it seems that most members want to see it all rather than switch categories to view the info. Because of your comments, we have definately pared down our plans and may only add one or maybe two additional categories, if any at all. We are actually meeting on the boards today to make some final decisions regarding the merge. We'll be in contact once we've worked everything out.

    Just wanted to reiterate, we've heard you and have modified our plans based on your comments. We appreciate members being so forthcoming with their opinions, and we listen because we want to keep the door open and we value your input. Our goal is to keep the boards as useful and informational as possible. I think you'll see that the few minor changes we're making will really improve the board overall in the end, not take away from it.
    I think many are just trying to say "hey this is the best board around don't mess with it". So I think you have your work cut out for you with any changes regardless of the outcome good or bad. I guess I'm like most and say "if it ain't broke-well, don't fix it" and when we get used to things we like, we don't even consider anything else (like a good welder). So perhaps you might just be dealing with a bunch of old fuddy duddies that protest change or perhaps a bunch of good old boys taking advantage of their favorite manufactures resources to further their knowledge, interests and social networking. I guess a lite stroll across the ice is best on this one?

    As far as our members being heard, I am referring to several threads on the topic on both boards over several months, not just this thread. My basis for my comments is much larger than what you are seeing here.
