Well it looks like winter is finally over here in the United States, it really didn’t feel like going away. Pretty soon summer will be upon us and they’ll be more people out cruising in their Cadillacs.
I have been playing with the idea of putting a forum on the website for a long time. What has been holding me back is I’m not sure people will use it. It takes a lot of work to maintain the forum and I am not sure that I have the time. What I need to do is find a good couple of people who want to be moderators. Finding these people is not easy, if you have moderated a forum before and think you can handle the job let me know.
If I get enough interest I will put the forum on the site. I think I may do it anyway because of it will be easier for people to upload their own pictures, have their own photo gallery and be able to tell about their Cadillacs without me having to upload a page.
I’ve been getting a lot of e-mails lately of people looking to sell their Cadillacs. By opening the forum it will give people a place to buy and sell Cadillacs with minimal involvement from me. This past week alone I’ve got five e-mails from people looking to sell their Cadillac. I would like to help these people as I’ve been doing for the last 10 years but it’s just become very time consuming.
Getting a forum to the website will make it feel more like a club, which is what I wanted to attain in the first place. Right now our e-mail newsletter goes out to all of 123 countries and people really enjoyed it. Every time I send out a newsletter, I get 25 to 50 replies back. Some people leave comments but mostly it’s people asking for parts, and where they can find them. Opening the forum for this would help our readers help each other.
The new forum software that I’ve been looking at is kind of expensive but I think it will be well worth it. I want to hear what you think? Either send me back a reply saying yes or leave it in the comments on this page.
