tell your friends about feoa. at one point i had business cards printed up and i would stick them on the windshields of escorts i saw around town. also, i know there are alot of people out there that were on erdt but didn't know about feoa. there are still a few forums out there for ford escorts, but they don't nearly have the amount of knowledge/posts/information that we do. we are approaching 2900 users. i'm not asking you to goto those forums and make a thread about feoa, infact i don't want to see that. but if you put a link to feoa in your signature on the other escort forums you post on that would help.

like: Ford Escort Owners Association

also make a post on someone cardomain page telling them about feoa. that is another good way to help spread the word. also adding a link to your cardomain page is good too!

How about someone make up a flyer. That can be printed out. I know there are a few around here i could put those on. I would make something up, but im not very good at stuff like that.

I'll try making up a flyer or some form of advert that can be posted up for everyone to print out and place on Scotrs that they might see... There are quite a few at my college right now (including this cute girl with a sexy blue ZX2) and I have gotten a few nice looks and compliments from students about the appearance/sound of my Scort in the past 3 months, I think it's a great idea to help spread the good word of FEOA to the heathens... hahaha!!! Now as to how I will get it easily accessible that is the question... any suggestions once I get it made up? oh and any people have input on how to make it look? I could do a basic thing with just some pics or I could do a Schnazy "concert Poster" styled one like this pic:



Ah... I've spent waaaaay too much time playing around in Photoshop and My skills aren't even improving that much anymore, I'm just finding new crap to do... I really should find a Girlfriend or new hobby huh?

There are so many people on here that have joined and not once posted anything. It's too bad...I have a link on my cardomain page. I don't know many people with Escorts, I do have one friend that does. Used to be on ERDT, not sure if he's on here, I'll recruit.

there are lotsa younger and older people around here that have escorts... if someone sends me a template for business cards or flyers, I can print some out (I have a laserjet, so I can't do color). And I don't mean send them to all of you guys... I don't have the money for postage or toner! LOL!

Well, I keep an eye on the member count and it's been growing at quite a rate lately (10 new members per day kinda thing).

I realize that Slapyo always wants the forum to grow in size, for obvious reasons. But I think there's an upper limit, beyond which it loses its family atmosphere. It's like any private company - once it gets too big it becomes inefficient and disjointed. A person simply can't keep up to speed on everything going on.

For example, when I joined, you could miss a day and still just check the Last 20 posts and be up to speed. Now, you miss a day and you end up joining a thread that is already progressed quite a ways. Also, I used to be able to remember most member's situation. Now, I can't remember what happened to whom.

I just recently joined a different forum. There are so many members that one can never identify with more than a small numbers of others. I'm only going to go there when I must.

Maybe it's just me. Certainly I wouldn't want to hope for something different than what FEOA's creator and admin wants. Bigger just means less cosy and intimate, I guess. No Josh, not that kind of intimate.

Ok if you go to the member list page, sort it by total posts, there are 1181 people that have zero posts. Thats 40% of the total members. Well I have a question. THe first two people have -1 posts. How can this be. And in this case, there are 1179 people with zero posts.
