Hello Everyone :)

I am pleased to announce that the Committee have decided to upgrade to a new website and forum platform in around 3 months time. This will run on a faster, more reliable back end database which we can expand on. Further details on this plan will be discussed at the AGM later this month, and published here shortly thereafter.

A few of the proposed features are as follows:-
  • Mobile Phone App (Android and Apple)
  • Facebook & Social Media Integration including Events Calendar
  • Enhanced Image and attachment upload / file sharing capabilities - No need for third party image upload tools such as Photobucket
  • Member Garage - Stores your vehicles details, including build threads, photo galleries etc.
  • Marketplace for buying and selling
In the meantime, we would like to invite all forum users (paid members or not) the chance to post any ideas and suggestions on features you would like to see available.

It could be something simple, a small niggle that annoys you when using the site. Or a whole new feature entirely. Perhaps you are a member of another club, and feel a particular feature of their web forum is something that could be implemented here. All suggestions are welcome.

Comment below with your suggestions, comments and questions, or drop me a PM if you would rather it remain anonymous. If you would like to discuss this face to face with the committee, paid club members are welcome to attend the club AGM on Saturday 19th January.

Thanks in advance

Steven / Web Admin
On behalf of the Committee

Great ideas 

An app on the phone will be ideal.
