the subject sums it all up. what would you like seen done to the site? any new features or things of that nature. here is your chance to post and let us know. but do realize that this is just a list to give us an idea at what you want and while we will try to put in as much as we can, there are some things we won´t do, or that we will put off to a later date. but we would like a list. so go ahead and let us have it! maybe post what you would like, a brief description of it, and why you would like it. you can post as many ideas as you want and we will keep this updated with your ideas and hopefully the progress on them.

make chat more accessible - done
sounds for chat room - looking into it
15 messages per page on forum - done
new forum to fix LOTS of things - coming soon

You can´t help me out on this one but I´d absolutely love a 1969 Camaro SS with a 4 speed and a 427 c.i. 425 hp V8. :-o :-]

Seriously though I´d love to see the chat room in more of the mainstream use. Make it more accessible. 95% of the time I´m on this site I´m using the forums, and you can easily forget about the chat room. But for some serious questions one might have on a project/repair, they might need some immediate answers. ;-)

On the main page where it says "FEOA Chat: 0 Users" you could put that between the Menu & Last 25 posts boxes. That way you can see it when looking through the forums, unlike now where you have to be on the main page to see it and realize that there are people in there.
Meanwhile, while you´re in the chat room would it be possible to throw in some sounds? You can forget you´re in it because there´s no sound. I know you were working on that earlier a few months ago. ;-)

Not much needs to be changed, and the Last 25 post is ingenious, no other sites have it. The only thing that I think should be added, would be a better parts page. The page is good but missing a lot, and there should be custom parts on it like bodykits from other car that closely fit the 91-96 escort. I know a lot of people ask about bodykits and there arn´t any really confirmed answers. Also other custom fit parts like wheels, gauges, pods, scoops, wings, engines, interior dress ups, and decals.

well thats my two cents.

I agree Justin. I´m going to add to that though. the Parts page should consist of parts that will fit 1st 2nd 3rd and ZX2 generation cars, not just the 91-96s.

And if Foxy or any other UK representative could help us out we could even put up parts lists that will fit the UK scorts as well. This site is about all Escorts, not just 2nd gen. (although that seems to the gernation owned by the majority of the users on this site) ;-)

Oh, yah a few other thing, putting a small pic. below your name in the side coloum instead of a round yellow face would be cool, like over at escortracing.com. But the pic´s should be only a small pic so it doen´t over power the posts. I also think it would be cool to have a project car page, that will be totally done up, "honda like". even if your not doing the car, if you know someone that is going to do this, just get them to do the pictures and write ups. Just a thought. It would be better than your Mod Journal page, because no one uses that page. I hope you get what I´am trying to say because I confused myself, anyways

the parts thing is all up to you guys. you submit reviews of the products and then we approve them. so not much i can do about that, you guys are the ones that post the reviews. so get postin! lol :p

custom avatars is possible. i have to manually upload the pic and then u can pick it from the avatar gallery, so if you want a custom one let me know where it is and i will put it on the server for you so you can have that. and until i can find a way so that you guys can change it, this is the only possible way. i know it sucks, but not much i can do with the board.

the chat thing should be fixed if i could make it play a sound everytime a message was recieved. nothing big, but a tiny sound to let you know there was a message. i can´t make the room blink, i looked into that and either you just can´t do it, or i couldn´t find it.

about the parts page, people just keep talking about the same products nothing new. I mostly am talking about the custom parts, like civic tails and body kits. The thing is the people that have done these mods, don´t want to give there secrets away. or they don´t really know what car there body kit caem from ( eg. wolfe thinks his is from a 91 intengra, but I think it´s from an 88-91 civic hatchback) People need acurate info. before going out and buying the wrong thing. You guys should get more involved in the parts page a to help less forgenate.

about the pic. below your name in the side bar, all I wan´t is a nitrus bottle, a blue bottle with the NOS sticker. It would be great if you could get me that.

About the parts page, it whould be an actual parts page. not a parts reviews page. The page should have all parts custom or made for escorts, not just the parts people like. ALL PARTS!

Also a Ride of the month would be cool, and you could use my car as the ride of the month of May 2003 lol :-]

I just thought of something else. In the signature, is there a way to extend the amount of characters you can type in? right now it´s at 255 and I´d like to add more but sometimes it cuts it off. :-?

That was quick work. I like seeing the Chat right there where everyone can see it. Hopefully that´ll help out in using the chat room more often. thanks Donnie :-] ;-)

this message board sucks. that´s basically what it comes down to. heh but it gets the job done. we didn´t pick this board it came with the site template. i am in the process of seeing if we can move to the board i wanted to. which will solve everyones message board problems!!! am actually looking at it right now.

Can you make the private messages page the user when he/she comes online Donnie? that would be cool too, but again it´s not a necessity :-] I´m just thinkin up a bunch of little stuff. ;-)

Edit: Page 6 Scroll down to the pic of the Garrett ball bearing turbo, can you shrink that and upload it so I could use it as an avatar Donnie? Thanks if you want to take the time to do it.

I think that everybody should be able to upload a 70x70 avatar of their choice.

If they are a member, they are able to upload the avatar onto the FEOA.net server.

If they are non-members, they have the ability to hotlink it from a remote site.

I´m sick of having retarded simpsons avatars. They´re super ghey, and they´re hardly unique.

Here´s a thing that I think a lot of people would like to be changes. At the bottom, when you post it says Profile / www. / AOL? AIM? ICQ? / quote.

Ok the thing I want changed is the www. ( the persons home page ) can you make it so this isn´t under there post if they don´t have an address in there.

Thanks, it really make me made when I click on it and it takes me no where.

well if you´re a windows whore using internet explorer, hovering the mouse over the link will display the link in the lower left corner of the window. Default it http://http:// so if you see that, you know it wont take you anywhere. No biggie.
