not looking to rock the boat here but, why couldn't we still have the 2005+ section that brought up the same old board but up at the top, had a sticky for "offroad" "show" and all the rest of the stuff that their's a new "sub-forum" for? does anyone else find it clumsy the way it's setup as of right now?
i mean, their should just be a sticky for " suspension" "performance" "offroad" and the like, shouldn't there?
and before anybody jumps on my shit for "being to lazy" to click the mouse a few more times or whatever, approach it from a common sense angle first. when someone has updated a post you started or were involved in, wouldn't it be easier to see that by looking at the top of the page, rather than having to go to a completely different one and waiting for it to load? (multiply that by however many sub forums their are that you may be interested in knowing about what's going on in)
anyway, like i said, not wanting to start a war or anything but i just thought it would make more sense.

Yes, I've seen that on other forums. That's a much better idea.

I couldn't agree more, especially with the fact that TN has been very slow lately. I find myself jumping between the general and offroad section, and it takes quite a while.

For Sale thread

I might have missed this but please tell me there is going to be another FOR SALE thread at the top again. The old floating one was a real pain. And I could give two shits if someone is selling Carolla rims or a Tundra radio. I really hate the common for sale thread.

And I think the server has actually gotten SLOWER!!!!

Hey Toku, if you are answering me we need to keep the FOR SALE thread at the top and exclusively for the 05 Tacomas. It was so nice when we took it out of the regular threads and added it the permanent threads.

If the sticky at the top was a direct link to this page would that be O.K.?

http://www.toyotanation.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=164


Because I think to have individual sticky's for each would be too much?
i don't know man- to me it would make more sense to do the main ones like the existing sticky's.
something like this at the top of the page:
-offroad
-for sale
-show & share (isn't this the same as the "show your ride" sticky?
-suspension/lift/wheels/tires
those would be the most important ones to most people on this board, in my opinion. then you could put the rest in some other sub-forum if you wanted?
i don't know, i'm just thinking of what would be easiest for the majority.

The server appears to be slower because people have to load many more pages now when switching between forums? Seems like a reasonable assumption. Much more data will be transferred now with all the sub forums because of people switching, thus loading a new page with every click.
I too think it's slower than it was a few days ago.

Ah! O.K. I can look into that to see if it can be done?

I personally don't have the access to make that type of changes. So it will need to be made by the Admin.

But I will look into it for you guys! Give us some time to see if it can be done.

No actually they were having issue with the server. They are working on it!:thumbup:

No problem guys!

All of these changes are intended to better your experience here at TN!

So any constructive input will be considered!:thumbup::thumbup:

I have put in a request to have 3 new sticky's added to the general section:

-2005+ Tire/Wheel/Suspension

-Off Road

-Truck Show & Share

These hopefully will be direct links to that area!


Also I have asked to have the "05 Tacoma FS" Sticky restored.

We cannot promise anything!

But it will be considered!:thumbup:


Thanks Guys!
