Are you new to our forum? READ FIRST POST!

If you have never joined a forum before, this site can look pretty hard to find real information in.

You could also feel unwelcome, because you have NO IDEA how things work around a site like this, and you’re not getting the help you need.

Well, that’s why you’re reading this.
And after you're done reading this- Bump the thread. (Post a reply, to bring it to the top of the page)

The VERY first thing you should know about a Forum is that we appreciate people who try to make themselves understood. Please write out your words, and use the best grammar you possess- because if we can't understand you, we can't help you! Also, if you post from a phone it is not a good idea to be sloppy about this. Chances are, you might really need help!

Forum Terms

A “thread” is the clickable link to a conversation about the topic you clicked on. (This is why we frown upon vague thread titles)

Threads are grouped together into “forums”. There are the General Forums and within those are the more specific ones. (Often these are referred to as sub-forums or child forums) There can also be rules inside these sub forums, that are specific to that area. (The “For Sale” forum is an example. Once you are able to post in those forums, you need to read those rules.) Why your post count matters is explained in the rules link below.

The first thing you should do is read the rules of the Forum at large. http://www.cb7tuner.com/vbb/showthread.php?t=157814

Most of the important things are bolded, or highlighted in some way.
But really, it comes down to one thing.
Be nice.
Treat people the way you want to be treated.

The next term you should know is a very important word… STICKIES.
Stickies are threads that are permanently “at the top” of almost every page in a forum.
They contain lots- and I mean A LOT of archived (older, and more researched) materials.
Most of the general info on our cars is in the stickies, but also, wiring diagrams and images that you probably won’t find outside this site.

Which brings me to a VERY IMPORTANT topic, Searching.
Searching will eliminate the need to make threads- threads about questions that have probably been answered a million times, or more. Please utilize the search function BEFORE making a thread. Also, if your phone is capable of making a thread in this forum, it is capable of searching this forum. Do it. Ralphie made a thread on searching
so that we could actually find info we need.

Mods and Admins=BOSS
No, they are not here to torment you. Our benevolent banstick wielders treat us all the same. They want you to do some VERY SIMPLE things. Mainly, follow the rules. Deeve has even banned himself on occasion, I do believe. Lol! So if they ask you to do something, please remember that these guys are actually here to help you should you need it.

Personal Messages
“PM’s” are the private messages between you and another user. USE IT. We do not like call out/fight threads and you will be banned for making one.

How to post pics, links, and vids http://www.cb7tuner.com/vbb/showthread.php?t=158273

Slang and Forum Abbreviations http://www.cb7tuner.com/vbb/showthread.php?t=46042

Don’t worry, you’ll catch on.
Hopefully by now, things seem to make a little more sense.

Don’t forget to click on “Control Panel” in the top header (to the left of where the search button is) and explore the features there.

One feature that I will highlight that is on the Control Panel or "User CP" are "Reputation Points".
Rep points appear as colored boxes under the user name.
Green boxes are "positive" rep, red boxes are "negative" rep, and grey is rep from noobs.
If someone says something you find clever, is helpful to you, or is giving stupid/wrong advice- you have a way of anonymously saying "I approve" or "I disapprove" of this post- and a short note.
The icon for Rep is at the bottom of the post to be repped, to the left, and is a scale.
It is anonymous- but mods can see who left what- so abuse this system at your own peril.

Lets use that archive a little more.

Want Pics?
http://www.cb7tuner.com/vbb/showthread.php?t=166748
Want motor swap list/info?
http://www.cb7tuner.com/vbb/showthread.php?t=159041
Want to know how to get low?
http://www.cb7tuner.com/vbb/showthread.php?t=178582
How about General Maintenance/Repair?
http://www.cb7tuner.com/vbb/showthread.php?t=158531

That should start you out.

Remember, that if you play by the rules- you can become a valued member of this REAL online community. There is a place here for people who DIY, as well as guys who don’t get greezy. The rules apply to EVERYONE equally. Enjoy your new forum life!!!

Wonderful! If every forum had this everyone would deal with less frustration. My only suggestion would be...when you first sign up and agree to the rules(you know, when you have to check that box that says i agree?), a link to this thread should be posted at the top of the rules. I bet more would read it if it was there.

Very nice work! I have a few ideas for additions, but I don't want it to get too wordy... or NOBODY will read it! So perhaps it's best just the way it is

All those links are in "sticky" threads throughout the forum. You'd be doing yourself a favor to read through all of them.

Yes, and that's why for a few of those links, you are going to a page with moar links.
Those deeply buried bits of the forum hold SO MUCH info, and it took me a long time to see it all.

This was my first forum; and if my BF hadn't been an admin on other forums, and been able to tell me how to get by on this platform, I can only imagine the noobish antics I would have committed.

That's why I made this thread, because if you have never used a forum before, you have no idea how to find the info you want, or how to present problems in a way that actually get help from other members. You have no idea why stickies are important, or why they are there. You don't understand the difference between a thread and a forum.

Also because I bet a lot of 1 or 2 year members have never dug in the archive, and WOW. There is a lot there.

Just double checking but is the 30 post thing the only requirement for the classifieds?

Don't worry I'm not going to post whore, just wondering as it is the only rule towards the classifieds I can find.
