Do we need any new categories or forums?

Recommended Posts

I would like to know our member's thoughts on this. Are we lacking in any forums/categories here in the community? Should we add any?

Maybe a pictures and videos forum, or a tech forum, or any other type of category....

Any ideas are welcome!

Some time back I opened an account with webshots, http://community.webshots.com/user/TrooperFolk, and shared the user name and pass word with most of the posters here because it was easy, or at least I thought so, and lots of us have used it. It has lots of room for lots of photos and accepts pictures and videos. If you come up with something quicker and easier, I'm sure it would get used, I like it because you can post one photo and it opens the album and you can see all the photos even if you're not registered, important, for instance, look at Lennys post, http://www.utvboard.com/Nelson-Hills-ride-report-t867.htm,

What we need to do is learn how to write ride reports, like Lenny's and be able to put photos and videos in the report, maybe under it's own non-branded forum. I always enjoy reading my sons forum, here's what that forum looks like, just for an idea, http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=317714, lots of picts.

You could drop the KYMCO UTV line, or not.

That's my 2 bits worth.

Kinarfi, Lenny's ride report was very good but after reading your sons forum, I would think this would be a better format for our site if we can do that. Your not linking to another site but as you said you can go on to see all the other photos if you want with webshots. Maybe, if we can post photos like the adrider forum, we could also keep up webshots too and get the best out of both worlds. I have tried to load videos onto webshots before with no success, that's why I suggested to add a video section here. The problem could be for me time lag causing it not to upload, I'm not sure.

Cheers Mike.

The same features with adding a photo in a thread like at http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=317714, are available here...I'm not sure what you would want to add except maybe a separate forum for Photos and Videos, or Ride reports forum..

All the photos in that thread are hosted at another site. All you do to add a photo in a thread is grab the url, then use the rte-image-button.png button, which will bring up a popup for you to enter the photo URL. That's it really.

We do not have a video upload section, I can look into adding functionality to display a Youtube video within posts....

    • Hello, New member

      Just to say Hello.  New to group.  Have a Cub Cadet 2011 4x4 Tracker.  Know absolutely nothing about it, except their parts are expensive.  It had a light bar on top which had 4 light fixtures on it.  They didn't work.  I took them apart and 2 of the 4 lamps had the entire steel holder inside totally rusted out.  Looking for some lights for parts but can't and probably won't find, but it never hurts to ask.  Am retired tool maker so always messing around.

    • Chery engine & Tranny cross over from another forum(http://buggynews.com/portal.php)

      Chery Engine Parts Cross by Rusty Nutz Racing » Wed Dec 16, 2009 9:24 pm Maybe this will help all the Joyner owners out, after hours and hours of research I found that the 2007 and older Chery engines are a clone of the ford's Britian CVH (escort) motor such as the 1.1, 1.3, 1.6 and 2.0. The great thing is that even though it was a clone of the Britian Ford CVH motor, they used 90% of the same parts as Ford U.S. CVH motor. The trannys are a VW model gear boxes with Ford bell housing. Least that is what mine is. Like the 650, 800 & 1100 are from a 1.1 to 1.3L VW golf. I have the 2006 1600 Joyner and my tranny is from a 97 VW Jetta. Now I'm not saying everything will bolt right up on the 650, 800 and 1100's you'd have to check that out yourself. But I know a friend that has a 800 Roketa and replaced transmission parts with a 1.3L VW golf. Another friend with a 2007 Joyner 1100 used gears and several other parts from a 1.3L Golf tranny. I have a 97 Jetta tranny that matches perfect to my 1600. I'm currently running a VW Jetta starter on my 1600. I bought several ford escort parts as replacement parts that fit perfect.


      Just do some research or pull photos of the VW 1.3L tranny and you can compare what it looks like to what you have. Do the same on the engines. Google photo of the 1.1 or 1.3 and see if they don't look real close to what you have.
        I've seen this info before but not on this forum. thought it might be of interest Jeff

      I've had an American Sportworks Trail master sxs for a couple years now and I'm too beat up from it's lack of suspension that I bought a Polaris Ranger and love it.
