Thumbs up Great Job Guys

Hey guys i think youre doing a fantastic job on here. I agree with you the more members there are the more people will get problems solved , alot of the problems posted seem to be minor problems which another member may have experienced themselves and fixed ,so every little helps. Even if its only how much the renault dealer charges to have the problem fixed it all helps

Hello All,

I will show my colours and stand firmly with the 'Clueless Owners' Brigade.

Thanks to everyone who helped me when I've posted though.

You might be correct about the general forum. We (the "staff") have a clear view of how the forum should work, but new users don't necessarily prescribe to this view. For example, this thread should not be in the general forum - we have a feedback forum especially for this sort of message!

We have plans to reorganise the knowledge base and could stop non-staff members posting in there. But that might not help as people might want to comment on or add to the content. What's the point of stopping what could be useful content?

This is a new forum and the vast majority of our members are here seeking help. I personally can diagnose the odd TDC fault, will usually spot a faulty airbag seat connection and might even help with PC stuff, but I ain't going to be much use on a MAF sensor. I'm sure, Paul, that you could probably say the same about yourself!

At the end of the day:

a) Most people join, make a post, get an answer and never return
b) Even more people join and never post
c) Lots of people come for the craic and are not much use on diagnosis but are more than welcome all the same
d) We get very little feedback about the forum even though we welcome it

IMHO there is a blossoming community on this site and just because one user feels a little neglected does not mean that it is not a helpful forum. We need to reach a point where we have lots of active members. At this point we will attract more members with WebCode's calibre and things on the forum will organise themselves and become much more pro-active

I'm also getting a bit fed up of people questioning our promotion techniques. OG has personally underwritten the venture and spent A LOT OF CASH on getting things started. I've spent hours trying to get the forum going and making it stable and feature rich. L2O has spent days working on his knowledge base. scen1c has spent hours... Well - he's spent hours doing something?

At the end of the day - it's a new forum and the more people that get involved, the better it will become. I suppose there is always Parkers...
Hi there!
I joined last week as a new member and am still having difficulty in navigating this site and getting answers to my questions that I posted re my catand exhaust problems !
Does nobody have any answers to help me or have I posted in the wrong place and am being ignored or what ??
Confused help please1

As an Ex mechanic, i don't know everything and renaults arnt really my strong point so forums like these are a big help, I am a firm believer in fixing it yourself unless you have to get someone else to do it.
Anyway looking through past posts the advise given by mechs and just owners is very good indeed, i have posted a thread here and i have had only one reply, but you can't expect every problem to be solved. It is also very hard to give advise without seeing the problem itself.

And as mentioned before the more people join the more helpful it will become, all i can say to the moderators and admins and members is keep up the good work this is a nice and fun forum to be a member of

Thank You

Oh and to all of you out there

lets keep this a fun place to be for help and advice (giving or taking) and encourage new members and get them posting. this is a community of renault owners who are trying to help each other (and have a little banter at the same time) and the more peeps contribute the more we can ALL get from these forums.

its in our own hands to welcome new members and post /encourage posting where we can.

finally a "BIG UP " to paul / mike / l2o and scen1c for creating and maintaining this forum in their free time for OUR is appreciated chaps.
