    The front page was a mess. Way too many forums. All the information is still there, just in a cleaner format. It will take a little while to get used to.

    We're preparing the board for some changes in the future, including a renewed interest in some of the newer models of V6 mustang. This reorganization was the first step.

    No, not out with anything. Just expanding horizons a bit.

    the new layout sucks lol. Oh well. It is good though that they are expanding on the 4.0 though. Should increase traffic to the site.

    I relly dont get the point of mixing appearance with suspension and general tech...I think it would fit better to mix B&A/photoshoots as a seperate section

    the more I look at it....

    Its smaller yes, but more cluttered since you get "should I get sidescoops?" in appearance which is under body tech, where you would expect stuff such as "how do I replace a 1/4 panel?"

    Appearance = body work = chassis = not powertrain

    The idea is to keep top-level categories for each generation to a minimum. The front page is just too cluttered.

    I know change is bad, but give it a few days.

    I agree that body/appearance has historically blurred the line between actual tech and a vanity forum. IMO "should I get sidescoops" is really a Mustang Talk type of thread, as there's no technical value to it at all. Maybe it's time to start making that distinction.

    perhaps there should be a bodywork section and appearance/styling?

    Not to mention the section everyone in my area used to chat got wiped out. New layout sucks.

    The idea is less sections, not more.

    The general "regional" board is still yours to use for exactly this purpose.

    did you completely get rid of the audio section?

    EDIT: nevermind. Found it. It's just in the dumbest spot. Why is stereo in a 94-04 section? O5+ can't have sterio's? lol

    with less sense in the layout...


    Work smart, not hard.


    such as why is interior/stereo in SN95 chasis and body? and why is the general maintainence section there? fox's and S197's dont have basic tech too?

    I wouldn't get too upset yet. The kinks are still being worked out but I think we are really moving in a good direction.
