Unanswered posts?
OK I'll try it. :biggrin:

Howdy old-timers! Hard to believe it's almost exactly 17 years ago I joined as a hard drinkin' refugee from the yahoo boards.

Just got a super-tight and super-clean 2012 G37XS w/111K a couple weeks ago, so I'll be tearing it up over there.
...but in trying to infuse myself with a NICO saturation infoload I noticed lots of dead links to tech articles for G37. :nono:

I kind of fell out of the car scene after I went to college but I've met some great people on this forum! And definitely learned much more than I ever did in college, that's for sure.

I remember the days when an imported SR20DET might actually have "only around 60K miles on it." :rotfl

I'm not =). I moved away from the DC area about 8 years ago, I just haven't logged into/updated my account in a long time. The car in my avi, for example, was just my national competition car for 2013, I sold it in Nov of that year to fund the next car.

03Z is not bad (anything after 01 for that matter is pretty good)! What color?

You saw the last Vette I owned, my Z16, I actually sold it about 3 months after that.

Just to reiterate the first post:

Here's what we DESPERATELY need: Look to the right column (or bottom of the page if you're on mobile) - there's a link called "Unanswered Topics." Periodically, could you click that and see if any of the unanswered posts are in an area you might be knowledgeable about?

If you have ever been helped out by info you got here, help someone else out by paying it forward and answering a question (or just welcome someone to the community). We try to get to everyone within 24hours, but it sucks when you create an account, ask a question, and get... nothing...

We've got some really cool upgrades in the works, which means the team and I are working double-time on the back end... I don't want anyone to feel left out or ignored, so spread some knowledge and help a newbie with their project!

Thanks in advance - Much love to everyone and please feel free to post any suggestions / questions here!

Since you're revving the software, one thing that would help a lot is allowing graphic files which are under the attachment size limit to automatically "paste" as an attachment. Right now it's necessary to temporarily save files and then upload, which is frankly a PITA, especially on a mobile device. Being able to paste pics with the system automatically generating a nametag would be a major improvement.

When you first log in, it doesn't default to the UCP. If you're viewing on a mobile device, the link to the UCP gets moved down to the bottom of the page, but before the ads.
