I like it here, but so far the only thing that keeps me coming back is the desire to be supportive. To be fair, I have communicated back and forth with the staff here more than I ever did in my forum of origin. I would really like to see our tech section pick up. I hope to find the time to contribute well-documented DIYs once the summer hits and I get under my car for long enough. I hope some more people do the same. I would especially encourage the staff to put together some good FAQs and DIYs.
When people see quality info on a site, they are more likely to join and ask tech questions because they have evidence that the community is knowledgeable. Once people join, they get to know us a little bity better in sections such as this one, enriching the community of the site. However, if all we talk about is how cool our cars are or are not, and how we are saving up to buy an E92, we are not providing what people are looking for.
I know we are new, but I hope this picks up. So far I feel like we have drained the gregarious members from other forums (making the atmosphere there not as enjoyable) without creating something that is a balanced alternative.
Keep it up, though. As for me: I will continue frquenting unitedbimmer as it grows in all aspects.
I agree completely drz. That's the reason we also chose to put the tech forums up top, and the off topic forums down below where you have to scroll to get to. We want to focus on developing the model specific tech community because that's also how the majority of members will find us in the future... googleing for issues they're having with their car. Right now we have a strong off topic forum because we're developing and setting things up, so we need user feedback and interaction. After we have a good community, the tech section will slowly develop until it becomes the focus of this site. I understand your thoughts and feel the same way, though I'm confident our growth now is the correct path to be where we want to in the future.
