    When did members projects become aunties problem page.

    I enjoy reading our customisation and refurbishment threads.

    It’s a shame there are more problem page threads appearing than projects.

    Is it me or are people just numb.

    I get loads of problems and find that in almost every case someone's already asked the question and got a mulititude of answers with at least one that works! It annoys me when you _know_ it's the 48th time the question's been asked.

    More often my answers are a little less than I used to give and often slightly cynical, bare bones so trying to get the OP's to find more out for themselves. I'd like to think this is me trying to get them to think, or integrate a bit more and add to threads, but more often it just seems they ask more questions back!

    but there so entertaining , lol

    suprising how many come here to ask a question, members always help then never get an update or a thks , so when someone else searches the solution was never found

    call me cynical :rolleyes:

    I used to go through, and report all the noob tech questions in Members Vehicles, and BB used to move them. After a bit, there were so many built up if I was offline for a few days, I lost heart with it! :(

    You want the most expensive, specialised 0w20 Synthetic oil you can find, and don't bother putting much in, the quality of the oil is so good you don't need much. :p:D

    Some of the questions they ask, I almost reply, "Should someone with so little mechanical knowledge, and an inability to use Google search, or buy a manual, really be running an old landrover? "

    Glad I am not the only one, I wondered if it was just me being a grumpy intolerant old git, as usual.

    Maybe someone from each discipline should have admin rights to either move or delete posts?

    I think it's a good idea, but it has been suggested before, and it was considered to be too fascist, or something.

    no, i think ur spot on, maybe it wouldn’t be so bad if more came back and advised what the solution was , then as new people search the answers would be there

    well in theory and only works if they search, lol

    often ask what happened before the internet

    The only issue I see with a clan up is, it will remove 14000 of @gstuart posts :D:D:D:D
