Arrow Update home page - please

Mods/Admins: The most up-to-date blog-post on the home page is of a 2016 vehicle. I know this page is community-driven, but is there any current info we can add to the home page that isn't a concept car that didn't happen?

There could be a ton of great information for new visitors and I understand we all go straight to the forum, but the home page is 3 years behind.

That's hilarious. I don't think I even realized there was a homepage!

This gets asked, and ignored every couple years.

This site is barely even moderated anymore much less having the main page updated. If it wasn't for ichi it would be anarchy in here.
In reality what would an updated page include anyway? The click bait car blogs have the market in fictional speculation wrapped up and as soon as one of them makes up the new wave of rumours we get 25 threads about them. The best the home page could say is "at this point in time we don't know shit".

Can a mod even update the homepage? Or Admin only?

Maybe... most of the old boys here are pretty good. Most of the time, I don't need to do much work. Cuz by the time I get there, you guys already roasted the newbies.

Actually, if you check our sister site Supra MKV, you can see main page been used to see the hot topic/feature threads. It's kinda cool tbh... but sadly, vbulletin can't do it.

Sadly, only Admin can do it. I asked to see if I can do it, cuz I'm here everyday and will update front page... no luck. O'well.

Just get rid of the home page and have www.ft86club.com point directly to the forum index. Problem solved.

I've seen several websites do this when they accepted that the only reason anybody was coming to the sites was for their forums. Instead of expending resources on keeping it current for nobody to read or having the embarrassment of a woefully outdated page, just dump it altogether.

The Supra site is still in it's honeymoon phase. Look at it once the car has been around for 7 years and see what features are being talked about. Bet the exact same thing as happened here has occurred.

Maybe we could have a weekly feature about what cars run better on high octane fuel!

I don't mind this idea. Either way 99.9% of ppl come here come to check the threads and pics anyways.

The only thing I could see being cool as homepage updates would be user submitted articles covering major events like 86 specific race series recaps (86Drive Challenge/86Cup, etc) or major regional meets (like Norcal86 Summer Kickoff).

No extra work beyond admin posting it (mods could pre-approve or a committee of user selected to see what is worthy).

That could be a good one as well. But not sure vBulletin will allow that kind of options.

I'm hoping to see some kind of update on this forum to help front page and forum lil bit more... but only time will tell.

i am formally opposed to anything to do with california. don't live there, don't plan to visit, don't see any reason why i need to keep hearing about it.

Oh come on, We all want that car to be created. Think of it as our ongoing protest to Toyota. Make that car a reality!
