  1. 1. Would you like to see the proposed changes with more sub-forums?

    • Yes, I'd like to change to the proposed structure

    • No - remain with Main, Open, Modern and the existing rules of no politics/religion/potentially sensitive allowed anywhere

In amongst all the vile name-calling and the cesspit of abuse that is the Dark Wob, a classic car was described as a car that the neighbours were envious of. Shite was described as a car that the neighbours despise and a modern was a car that the neighbours didn't notice.

 

I may be paraphrasing slightly, but I thought it was a decent definition.

With illustrations from my own fleet.

 

“Ooh that’s a nice car” = Classic (2CV)

 

“Why don’t you get a proper car” = Shite .( Saab 9000)

 

*never mentions car = modern (Peugeot 206)

Facebook's a bit cutting edge for ASHQ, we're going to stream it live on Bebo.

And by nasty, we mean a three hour Cavcraft Comedy show.

 

So by some sort of extraordinary event, I remembered that this was almost time up as we said it would run for one week. I'll close the poll shortly and then we'll get some sort of plan together. Watch this space.....

 

 

Edit: Oh right, apparently closing the poll also locks the thread. Unlocking the thread reopens the poll. Bloody technology! I'm quite glad one of the options for any changes was to roll them into a board software upgrade.... So yeah, thread locked through no fault of anyone's!

OK, so the forum spanners are out (no, I mean the toolbox - not me and Billy) and we're gonna start making changes.

 

Very soon you'll see the new forums that were requested, such as For Sale and Technical Q&A. Please bear with whilst we move things around, it's done on the live back end so if something doesn't look right simply wait 2 mins and it should right itself.

Attention beige-dwellers. The "forum for sensitive issues like politics and other stuff" is now open (should probably come up with a snappier name). As suggested it's by request, just PM one of the mods and we'll add you to the group who can see it.

 

(Basically just means that nobody will stumble into it by accident, so nobody can be upset that it's probably going to be a little bit less easy going than the rest of the forum. That said, abusive comments still won't be welcome so opinions need to be respected. Even if they're wrong someone elses)

      Some discussion was had at the recent Scotoshite Xmas scraningtons about a return match at Cannock auctions around the end of January/beginning of Feb.  Saturday auctions are on 25/01 and 01/02. 
      Usual arrangements to apply; ie. Friday evening gathering at one of WS11's glittering* dining opportunities, Saturday brekky at the Trucker's Rest on the A5 then on to Cannock motor auctions for EOL shite and assorted rank-fodder.  And DETHBURGAS.
      Shout up.

      Hi all,
       
      Bit of a random one but do any Manchester/Derbyshire/South or West Yorkshire based Shiters fancy a meetup sometime in Glossop?
       
      I know it's not exactly a sprawling metropolis but it has a reasonably priced car park, a Wetherspoons, a caff, etc.
       
      Main reason for suggesting it is it's a nice drive in from most directions - over Holme Moss from the North or Snake Pass from Sheffield direction.
       
      The A624 from the south isn't too bad either.
       
      Something like a Thursday evening would be best for me but open to suggestions.

      Yo! I've been nominated (many times) to organise a shitefest next year, considering i can't even organise my own life then this could be a challenge but I'm happy to try and arrange something if there enough interest?.
      I've made enquiries at the Rose pub where we hold our East Coast Retro car meets on in Shotley near Ipswich, Suffolk (IP9 1NL) and she's more than happy for us to use the field over weekend for £5 per person per night if sleeping over, there are toilet facilities and the pub does good grub plus they have a large room for us to have a meal or maybe a quiz on the Saturday night?.
      I've also spoken to a friend who's a volunteer at the Ipswich Transport Museum and even though the museum is closed to the public on a Saturday he can't see no reason why we can't have the museum to ourselves for a private tour around and even the possibility of a bus ride on one of their historic buses which I'm sure a few on here would really enjoy.
      Now it's obviously early days yet but what i need to know roughly is how many of you shitters be interested in this and i need to give the pub a date as their field is getting booked up so that we can secure for our chosen weekend.

      While I’m feeling sociable and non stressed. Does anyone fancy meeting up at Staplefield on the 3rd November to watch the veteran car rally? The pub does a good bbq breakfast.
