Well,

After a couple months we are up and running almost full steam again, does anyone else have anything else they have seen or can think of that they want on the site?

On that note we lost a lot of members, I'm looking to find a way to get our members back, and open to suggestions. I also need people to cover events with pictures and do writeups, we can upload them to the gallery and cover them on the front page of zdriver. I would be willing to get business cards and flyers made up for those that do this so they can pass them out when they go.

I would also like to thank 91zman for doing stickers for everyone and taking the extra time and effort to get those out for people.

I see the site now has a gallery. Good. I suppose all of our previous gallery pics are gone forever? I've always enjoyed posting here, but, the gallery was a big draw for me. It just made sense to have my Z pics hosted by a Z web site, plus, I could check everyone elses' pics during my daily stops here. Having good pics hosted here is a way to entice visitors, and visitors become members. When I view a pic in some other forum, I usually will check the source and go see what else is going on there. If it's good enough, I'll visit again.

Pride is also a draw. Get some interest going in a "car of the month" program, folks will attempt to be the "car of the month", and, will be checking out the competition.

how about a canada section in the regional forums, we usually use the northwest, but how bout our own. now that there is actually some of us on here more often. i like the chat, and how skullys link makes a seperate window so you can chat and post at the same time. the other one you gotta log out to check posts. car of the month sounds great, anything if you win, like a hat or t-shirt, or just bragging rights.

Guys, I own a printing company, HotGloss Printing. We specialize in full color business cards, postcards, and brochures... I can print ZDriver business cards for $39 +shipping. (Our web prices start at $69 but since I own the joint, I can do them for less...) I could even design the cards unless someone else wanted to.

Regarding the site, I'd like to see a "how to" section... I know a lot of the members know their cars bolt by bolt and have experience with various procedures on maintainance, upgrading, etc... But some of us are tinkering for the first time, and want to learn from the "pros"!

Could you work out a design, I'm kind of picturing a black glossy card with the logo on it, with the web address as well.
