I mean, I'm a FNG and love the site...and it's free...maybe charge a $10/month cover and hire people for content research. We spend thousands on parts.

Ignorance is bliss?

Start charging and the place will be a ghost town in a couple of months.
Sure it isn't a huge amount of money but paid content forums will only attract a very small number of diehards while severely limiting the new blood.

And that makes sense. I'm happy with the content, but apparently missed the Golden Era...I am a believer that if you hate the threads, start better ones! If you hate the content, write some better content!

What's the point in complaining and relying on others to improve the (free) community when we can do it as a collective...

Personally, I don't think the front page needs to be updated regularly.

Just remove all the not-so-news, put some nice picture, and a button to go to the forum.

Or just set up a redirect from ft86club.com straight to the forum.

"One evening job" and the problem is solved.

Another evening can be used to update the header picture the shows the '13-16 BRZ at the top of this forum

To whoever does that: thank you!
