Long-time members and newbies, PLEASE check in!

Postby AZhitman » Thu Nov 21, 2019 11:04 pm

Hey all! Lots of changes going on here at NICOclub HQ, including a new web host, some cool new software, a WAY faster server, and a web guy that's knocking out tasks as fast as I can hand them out!

Traffic is up as of the last 4 months, and I'd like to see us continue that trend - People are realizing that Facebook doesn't help much with REAL tech information! :nono:

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, I'll check in daily! :dblthumb:

Oooh, Updates. I like updates.

I'll try to keep generating awesome content as long as you keep giving me an awesome place to post it.

Who's the new web guy? Or would it be web person, sorry don't like assuming gender.... :chuckle:

Deal. Thanks for sticking with us through the years. :)

Web guy is Reed, and while he probably won't pop in much, he's a wiz - and has already pulled my arse out of the fire a few times. Great to work with, and he GETS what we're doing here.

Some of you have already bumped into our SEO / marketing / advertising Guru, Mika (mlepisto). Equally valuable and awesome to work with, and if he's patient enough to put up with me, he's divinely-guided (or insane).

ANYHOW, back to the original point: Let's hit up those Unanswered Topics and see if we can shorten the list. We're on the cusp of something big, and I'd like us to be as ready as can be. :)

Hugs and s***. :biggrin:

Here ya go, guys: search.php?search_id=unanswered

Feel free to reach out to others or recruit help.

We've got over 1k unanswered posts, and although I don't care if classifieds and such never see a reply, the tech-related questions deserve some attention (even if it's "Hmm, dunno, let me look it up.")

Yeah, some are easily answered with a quick Google search - but if it gets people the info they want, and they trust us enough to ask, we did a good thing - Right? :)

Old guy checking in. On my way to the Philly Auto Show which just opened. I'm hoping to check out Nissan's latest CVT dominated transportation appliance lineup without offering my commentary by farting.

MikeRL411. I still drive my 1967 RL411 and my 1970 Infiniti J30T. I sold my 1990 240SX when it started to develop a head gasket leak. I didn't want to go through the pain of an engine gasket set replacement so sold it to an individual who wanted it as is.

I used to be a member over a decade ago when I had my 92 hatchback with a pretty stock redtop. I couldn't remember my password and I don't use/have that email address any longer. I rejoined now because in a couple of years I'd like to buy another 240sx and build it. Going to start to regain what I used to know about SR's by hanging around here. Hopefully soon I can help out.

You should talk to James (smurfette). If you know enough about your old account, he may be able to restore your rights. Just a thought.
