Hello!

Postby chunkymonkey71 » Fri Aug 31, 2007 1:42 pm

I'm a new user and just wanted to say hello to everyone. Been driving an L reg Eunos Roadster (i think its an S spec) for a good few months now, and only just getting round to joining the owners club!

What a great car! Needs a few things done to it, but you tend to forget these things when the roof is down and theres a twisty road to be driven...!

I might be calling on a few of you for some tips on maintenance and repairs soon! Starting with fitting a new soft top. Has anyone fitted one by themselves before? And if so... how easy/hard was it?
:D

Welcome to the forum. I would not attempt to renew hood myself but checkout Richard at mx5scotland.com he has replaced loads in the club and can source different colours and materials.

Hello and welcome. :)

BTW it helps if you fill in your profile in your forum profile. That way sinister voice we know where you live ;).

Actually, it does make it easier because if you do ever post about things like wanting help or whatever, someone nearby may look at your post and be able to offer more than just written advice, or give you local places to try for help or whatever. It happens quite a lot.

Hi there. Just to echo what has been said already and "fit like?"

Enjay, you have a valid point. Maybe it should be compulsory for registration that location be added so that we can offer help when needed etc. Makes it easier too for us AC's to suss out potential new blood, I mean new members :lol:

Doh!
BTW it helps if you fill in your location in your forum profile.

But people knew what I meant (I think).

It would be good if providing a location was more actively encouraged, because it is useful and has proven so a number of times on the forum. It's not as if people are giving an exact address or anything, just the area/city where they live. So no personal or security risk. However, it would be hard to enforce if it were compulsory because you could write things like "Scotland", "Mars", "Right behind you" or whatever and the software would, presumably, see these as correctly filled in location fields.

Yes a very valid point, it can be annoying when new users register and post a help query without a location, the same way we feel stupid when typing a response to a name like chunkymonkey but don't feel so bad about typing a name like Enjay or PaulDS.
To be fair to Chunkymonkey :lol: , he did say in one of his posts he was from the Southside of Glasgow....
Welcome Chunkymonkey from a fellow Southsider :D

Absolutely, and I certainly wasn't having a go, in case anyone thought that.

However, if in 3 months time, when people may have forgotten the detail of this introductory thread, Chunkymonkey makes a post like "anyone know of a good place to get a full geometry check" without adding "in the Glasgow area" the first question would be "where are you". With the location filled in, there'd be no need.

Perhaps something in the forum FAQ or the sticky thread in this forum to ask people nicely to fill in their location is all that's needed. Something like "please fill in the location field in your profile as it helps us to help you"?
