- Mopar Topic is obviously for the topics regarding Mopar cars and trucks. When you are in that area, there is an index in the right sidebar for those threads, sorted by last reply, or vote the case of a poll. The reason for not combining on and off topic threads is that there are a high percentage of people who will only come to a Mopar site for Mopar posts, and feel so offended by non-Mopar posts that they stop coming. To increase and keep members, we can't drive those members away. I know it sounds crazy to some, but all you have to do is admin a couple Mopar groups on Facebook and you'll see all of the complaints and reports if someone posts off topic.
- For those of use who want to discuss subjects other than Mopar with our MoparStyle friends, it is just a simple click of the Non-Mopar tab. That section too has an index of threads in the right sidebar, but only for posts in the groups you've joined. If you're not a Member of the group, then you won't see those posts in the index. For instance, if there is a group each for the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard - but you were in the Navy and don't give a Rat's Ass about the other branches; then you join the Navy Group and not the others. You will then only see the Navy posts in the index. I personally have Joined all of the group's. Likewise you can create and administer a Group if there's a topic you feel that isn't represented. That group can be Public or Private. For instance, say you're a member of the Crypts gang and there's not a group for you and other MoparStyle members who are Crypts, you can create a group, invite other Crypts Bros, and make it Private so the Bloods don't know when you're coming after them. So join the groups that a future pôst might interest you, and stay away from the groups that you have no interest in. Also in the right sidebar under the index of posts in your groups, is a list of groups you belong to.
- Next Tab s News. For the most part that is going to be site updates from me, or Mopar industry news.
- The final portion of the site is the blog. Each member is entitled to their own blog, You can use it for virtually any legal purpose you wish. If you're a little girl, you could use it as your diary. "Dear Diary, I have a hangnail that hurts, and Ricky winked at me. He's so cute!" Or if you're a Drag racer you could use it to be the shop diary of work performed, and race updates. Heck you can make it your web site likewww.TexasWhaleRacing.com. You could even register a domain and have it forward to your blog if you wish Your imagination is your only limitation,
Look, I know it is different than what's been here for last sixteen years, but a little effort and you will find that it not only that it isn't that difficult, but s also better.
