As time goes by I think beefing up the technical boards may be helpful. A few more specific categories so folks can post/reply to issues regarding specific things, problems and solutions. Experience also tells me that many will ask a question instead of trying to find the answers in something like the Wiki. Wiki use tends to be among the more experienced owners, and the newer folks will only start using it as a resource if articles are linked in forum responses.

It seems forums like these attract new Eagle owners who, if they get frustrated, dump e.g. junk, their cars; and the rest of the members are experienced owners. I feel its up to the experienced owners to offer non-judgmental advice to the new owners, often in the simplest of terms as many have never owned a rear wheel drive car, let alone one with a carburetor, making the learning (and enjoyment) curve a steep one. And, to encourage dissatisfied owners to at least consider giving their AMC Eagle an appropriate new home.

Absolutely Doug, back to the basics of why and how these things work.

we seem to be growing slowly, but how are we getting the word out exactly? I see bill is name dropping us on the nest, pown is advertising us here:http://www.reddit.com/r/amceagle/comments/18jjyo/amc_eagle_evolution_better_forum_better_wiki_than/, and shagg is name dropping us on g body forum, along with the old website address on car domain. are there any other ways we are getting members, that I haven't found lurking through the nest, or searching google for amc eagle evolution?

I've been directing people here from the fb Nest Fans pages, I see we have Germaneagle already made his way over. Looking forward to his build thread, says he's doing an engine swap & propane conversion! How cool will that be to see unfold? :drool:

Yeah, I've mostly been name dropping to people I see posting in AMC Eagle Drivers group on Facebook. Used to name drop on The AMC Eagle Nest page, but that got deleted and I don't care to join the fan page! :)

The Nest Fan page & group (there's two : P ) are both created & run by me. So I'll warn you before I boot you, Rafe. :lmao:

I redirect as I visit with others at other places. Hopefully, as the numbers increase they will tell others.

I made a thread w/ link on Fran's site and post the link when I can on the AMC forum. Also made an ad with the link for Eddie's site, hoping he will approve it and put it up.

I lurk their from time to time on a few of the pages. read the mistaken identity column to get a heads up of what to expect.
