Member Interviews

Attention Members:

We are working on a feature member area with interviews of our members. Other folks are fascinated by your stories of projects, builds and dreams.

Below you will find a template of interview questions. Please answer these questions in complete sentences. You do not have to answer every question. The more "in depth" the interview, the more likely it will be featured. Please include a link to better quality pictures of your project. For your convenience, you can upload your pictures to the site gallery and simply provide a link to them for us with your interview.

The interview forum is only viewable by Administrators and the original posters. You can only view your own thread, and replies by staff. You can reply to your own thread as well.
Please submit your completed interview by pasting it into a new thread in the following forum

Thanks and we look forward to getting to know you and your projects!

For sale Ads, and Subscribing

Due to a growing increase in members that are selling a volume of parts, the forum is now offering new vendor pricing to accommodate those needs. This will give members several different subscription levels based on the quantity or frequency that you sell items. These new tiers of membership will allow you to make a short term upgrade when you have the need, or take advantage of the savings that a longer term has to offer.

As always a basic membership on the forum comes with no charge. You may post a reply in any of the Classified Forums. You will not have the ability to offer items "For Sale", "For Trade", or make a "Wanted to Buy" or "What's it Worth" post.

Your basic membership includes the following-
Registered Member : free
All members registered to the message board.
As a registered member you can-
Post new threads and replies in message areas.
Post replies only in classified areas.
Upload photos to the photo gallery.

If you are the "Occasional" seller that is just cleaning out your surplus of parts left over from your build, you will need the Premium Member subscription. This will allow you access to start threads in any of the Classified forums.

As a Premium Member you enjoy all the benefits of a Registered member.

This is designed specifically for individuals that want to offer primarily used parts, manufacturer small parts, or offer services at an affordable price. It is not to be used for location or internet based businesses that offer parts or services as a primary source of income. The Forum Staff will be available to help determine if you meet the guidelines.

This level of support allows members to sell more than leftover parts.
You can sell unlimited used parts or some new parts.
You may advertise your off site listing on eBay, Craigslist, etc
This is not for traditional business vendors.

For our members that are employees or owners of a business that would like to take advantage of the huge volume of customers this site has to offer we have what you need. We can help you increase your sales by promoting your product. We provide you the ability to offer weekly or monthly promotions that will be showcased in related forums. You may add a logo to your signature, or a direct link to your site. You will be promoted on a supporting vendor list as well.

Your Gold Vendor Membership includes the following-

Compare our traffic flow and costs to realize how effectively and efficiently your business can be promoted. Please contact the Forum Administration with your ideas and allow us to design a package that works best for you.

II. To post or transmit material in violation of copyright laws is a no-no.

III. No pissing matches. Its fine to disagree, but once a thread has run its course, and degenerated into little more than an insult fest, it will be locked. While this will require a judgment call by the Administrators & Moderators. The members of this site can keep our moderating to a minimum by exercising a little discretion and self- control. Excessive profanity will lead to a 24 hour suspension at the Administrations discretion.

IV. Pure trolling, either to upset someone or simply for your personal
enjoyment, is strictly prohibited. If you're here to cause trouble, it will be a very short stay. Immediate BAN and you will be reported to your ISP.

V. Posting or transmitting commercial or bulk e-mail through use of this bulletin board network will lead to a permanent ban off

VI. To post here or transmit off-topic and/or link to websites; in regards to selling merchandise (such as but not limited to t-shirts, hats, bumper stickers, key chains, coins, etc.) that may represent any current and/or future marketable interest of by way of capitalizing on our platform through our members without the prior written permission or approval of is not authorized, and is prohibited.

If you are an Individual selling parts for profit (new or used) on a large or semi large scale, this applies to you. This also Applies to competing websites. Promoting your website here is expressly forbidden.

VIII. No inappropriate pictures. No nudity will be permitted. If you have to think about posting a picture anywhere else on this Discussion Forum then it's a good bet you should not post it.

price of what you are selling, then you should do some research. If a Moderator or Administrator here asks you to post price(s) and you have not within a 12 hour time frame, they will delete your thread, period.

XII. It is against our policy for someone to post a complaint about a members price on whatever they are selling. If you don't like the price then skip it. Let it drop to the bottom on its own. They (potential buyers) will figure it out, why nobody is jumping on that particular item.

XIII. If you are a long time member, act like one. Lead by example and assist other newer members rather then attacking them. We look upon our veteran members to use this opportunity to teach the newer members the appropriate message board usage.

XIV. Multiple Posting - It is simply not acceptable to post your question more than once, or to post it in more than one forum. Choose the forum that your question or post best fits in, and place it there and only there. If, after posting, you feel it should be in another forum, private message the forum Moderator and ask if they would move it for you.

XV. No posts meant strictly to drive your post count up, or otherwise abuse server resources. If you make a post to drive your post count up, two times the number of posts made to increase your post count will be removed from your count.

XVI. No Dummy Accounts register using only one user name. Creating multiple user accounts or flooding the board will be considered a denial-of-service attack on the forums and will result in your being banned from the forum and reported to your ISP.

XVII. Name changes: there are very few instances that warrant a user name change. If you need to change your name contact and Administrator and tell them you are changing your user name. Register the new name and an Administrator will delete your old account. If you do not notify an Administrator of the new account, it will be assumed to be a dummy account and dealt with as stated previously.
