    I'm still here, but there's been a big change at Edmunds lately which has killed off most of the activity on some boards and forums.

    If you've got a few minutes, try reading the last couple of weeks posts over here: Forums Software! Your Questions Answered...

    If you've got strong feelings about what's happening you might want to make a post there yourself.

    Note however, that those who have been TOO critical of "The Great Leap Forward" have also "lost" the ability to post in that forum.
    Just ask me how I know...

    I'm still hanging around to see how all of this will go, but I do NOT like what has happened.

    If we can get some good posting going again, great. If not, there will come a time in the not too distant future when the old Tomster no longer comes to Edmunds.

    I am too, but there hasn't been much reason to post.

    I did like the pics, but didn't think a comment was required.

    I've not been doing too much with the Jeep lately as I've been busy with lots of other stuff and been on vacation. :)

  • I loved reading the previous forum on a regular basis. Not always necessarily for a specific piece of information, but for the educational value that I got from "listening" to the conversations. More often than not, something that I had read raised my interest which ultimately spurred me to improve my vehicle or a better way to handle a particular event that I didn't even know existed.

    However, what I am seeing here from those that have helped to build the entire Jeep Wrangler section of Edmunds (Mac, Tom, and others), indicates that their level of frustration might make this whole community spirit go the way of the Dodo Bird (extinct)!

    While I understand that this is a business with associated costs, there must be a way to work out an appropriate forum that is community building while at the same time allows the business interests of Edmunds to coexist and support the 'community' interests of their audience.

    I sure hope that this new forum / page will truly replace the previous 'Jeep Wrangler' forum so that new owners, as well as those looking to just expand their interest and knowledge of their vehicle, will continue to be a major attraction to the Jeep Wrangler Community.

    BTW Brazuca - I do like the pictures. It does take a little getting used to seeing the '07 with the same affection as the '40 - '06 Wrangler and all the versions that have come before!

    Thanks - Chuck

    I'd post more about what all is going on with my Jeep if I was doing stuff with it. I actually have Kermit in a good spot now (other than some dents I'm working on getting fixed :)). Other than line-x'ing the tub and adding a stronger cage, Kermit is pretty much a sustain project vs build up project for me now.

    Now if I could only get some wheeling time... :)

    Nope! :(

    The old 'Jeep Wrangler' made far more sense to me.

    Please explain to me why rearranging furniture caused you to lose interest in talking about your Jeeps?? Did you sell yours? No one has driven - onroad or offroad - for the past month? I don't buy it 'cause Jeepin' is in the blood! :)

    Tidester:

    I guess it's because new folks used to come to "Edmunds Jeep Wrangler" to ask their questions. They were given warm welcomes, their questions were answered, and they were invited to stick around and become part of the family. Their questions were sort of like "conversation starters," I suppose, and you know how one post leads to other posts.

    The sign on the door certainly matters to potential newcomers. It's the difference between "Come in to this room to discuss anything to do with Wranglers", and "Come into this room to socialize and meet with people who own Wranglers".

    It may be a subtle difference, but the second option is a definite turn off to someone with technical questions in mind. Kind of a 'touchy/feely' thing.

    As I said, a subtle difference, but I believe that more people come here initially for automotive reasons than to socialize (though once here it's nice that some of them choose to stick around). I guess it might sound a rather thin explanation if it weren't for the lack of new faces around here lately.

    As I said when we changed over, it works for me. However, it doesn't seem to be working for others, judging from the lack of new faces. Jeep Wrangler used to be the initial point of contact, and as the new name doesn't seem as attractive as the original why can't we change it back again?

    I think this is the way most of us feel. The Wave & Meet thing just doesn't attract people. Can you be an advocate for us to go back to the Jeep Wrangler title? It at leaat got people to the site and kept many of them here.

    I can't change the name to "Jeep Wrangler" (because it's already assigned).

    Take a look at the new header I created on the Jeep Wrangler group page. That should help.

    As for a better name for this topic, we're open to (other!) suggestions. :)
