The completely overhauled and rethought Tech Subforums are for the hardcore hands-on wrenchers, and will be free of Noobs, Trolls, and Flaming. This section is for the open and insightful discussion of technical talk which may be too advanced for your average Audi owner.

Further details about what it will take to participate in this new forum section can be found within my recent Blog Entries (http://www.audizine.com/forum/blog.php?u=2), snippets of which are below.


...Another important factor is maturity and one's ability to be friendly and follow the rules. As you may or may not know, we hand out Official Warnings and Infractions when a member breaks the posted Audizine Rules & Guidelines (http://www.audizine.com/forum/showthread.php?25265). These Infraction Points add up and lead to suspensions, or eventually, a permanent ban. A permaban comes at 4 points, but when/if someone receives 2 points then they will be demoted/unavailable to climb the ranks and achieve the extra perks that these new account levels will bring.

These new account permissions will include things like extra PM space, extra Gallery storage, the ability to upload more ads to the Classifieds, and (last but not least) access to special new forums. Restricting access to specific account levels from certain forums should make for more on-topic discussion free from Noobs, Trolls, and Flamefests... MORE (http://www.audizine.com/forum/entry.php?64)


...These changes are set to arrive this Friday the 9th, and will look a little something like this...

• Classified Ads: 0
• PM Space: 50 messages

I assume this would be a great place to discuss the low pressure fueling issues and things like that?

Edit: I won't be a Senior member til December :( Although, I do believe that the post counts for rank are a little low. I acheived 500 posts in my first year.

I'm in limbo, a seasoned Senior member, but a little more than 2 years away from veteran status.

I cant wait to see what comes of this thread.

IMO, one's number of posts aren't as important as how long they've been with us.

Thanks. Now hopefully these new subforums will get some use, and as they were intended. Time will tell.

Just curious Anthony...are the moderators going to sift through the already going on threads that would be in this forum?

Would you like us to bring it to the moderators attention if we see any threads that would be Tech forum worthy? Just wondering.
