Angry Whats happening to this forum>

It might just be me....But have any of you long timers noticed whats going on with this forum? It used to be a awesome forum where you talked tech questions and just enjoyed basic automotive stuff. Now, it seems like people are asking about CAI and bragging about street racing? Is this what this forum has turned too? I know alot of us here disaprove of street racing. And as for the CAI, Kobi and Cosmo made guides discussing everything, but people still disregard that and the SEARCH function. I don't know, maybe its just me. Thats my .02cents.

Show me where - I'll fix their wagon!

Seriously though, as the site grows, you'll see more people coming in who need to be educated. Don't let it bother you, just point them in the right direction. It'll get worse unless we point people to the resources, and teach others to point them to the resources too. A simple link to the article Cosmo or Kobi wrote should be sufficient. Don't fall into the habit of just telling them to use the Search though - I've seen what that does to a community. If one question gets asked too much, PM one of the moderators or myself and ask for it to be added to our upcoming FAQ. Fair enough?

Yea, it sounds good. And I totally understand the whole search function routine with forums. Its just that the CAI intake question gets very old. Plus, the whole bragging of street racing thing is rediculous also. But I guess with growth of a site you have to expect these things. I was just venting, thanks though.

Understood. I've opened up the FAQ forum for the mods and WRX-perts to start adding to. Check it out:

I'm gonna move this to the Site Feedback forum since it's more of a site issue/complaint. This way others can see that we've addressed it.
