A Guide to the Sub Forums of Camaro5
 
Since there seems to be a some confusion regarding the various subforums, and even a lack of awareness in some cases I thought I'd make a thread briefly explaining the purpose of each.


General Camaro Forums

5th Gen Camaro General Discussions

General 5th Gen talk not covered by other subforums

This seems to be the most misunderstood section of the site. If something doesn't fit into a category we already have, post it here. So don't ask about what headers you should buy, or what polish we recommend, or talk about your lost dog. Those threads belong elsewhere. But if its a piece of Camaro news, or a general question about the car feel free to post it here.

Camaro ZL1 Forum - ZL1 Specific Topics
ZL1 Specific Topics

Fairly simple and straight forward. If its about the ZL1 (but not ZL1 vs ____ ) it goes here. There is also a sub-subforum here regarding Engine | Exhaust | Bolt-On | Drivetrain Modifications specific to the LSA in the ZL1.

Camaro Z28 Forum - Z28 Specific Topics
Z28 Specific Topics

Need I explain more?

For the latest news about the 'Fest, posting up suggestions, the caravans that will forming all over the United States and Canada, and any grudge matches that are being planned and anything else related to Camaro5Fest. Past Fests are archived in their own sub-subforum.

Regional Forums
This is entirely made up of subforms. If you questions specific to your area, have a regional owners club, or a local event talk about it here. Occasionally large events will be drawing on people from neighbouring regions so don't forget to check out whats going on in the surrounding area too. Also a good place to hang out and talk about local 'off topic' items. There is also a local marketplace.

Are you trying to get a picture for your avatar (the pic that shows to the left of each post)? If you are, then its you've just gotta go into your user CP (here) and look on the left side and you should see an 'edit avatar' (or just click here) and go from there.


Otherwise, if you're trying to upload them into a post we have a thread for that in the Site Related Announcements / Suggestions / Feedback / Questions section. Here is the link: Posting and Re-Sizing Pictures on Camaro5

All mods should have a link to this thread in their signature :D

Or maybe when someone registers for the site, a link to this thread should be part of the welcome packet/e-mail :D

:popcorn:

Because if people aren't willing to scroll down and read the forum's homepage, I'm sure they'll bother to find and read a thread about it...

Thanks for reminding me of this thread. I've got to go back and update it, maybe on the weekend. I know there are a few new sections to add, and the Z/28 is no longer speculation.

Not everyone will read it, but with nearly 10,000 views quite a few people have at least looked at it.

Hella great idea. I am new and stumbled across this.

So what if you are new to cars in general. And after test driving all the pretty cars. This girl decided she wanted to learn about her car and she doesn't know all that much and the topic lists you have posted are half like looking at a foreign language? Where to I go for the "dummies guide articles" ?

Thanks!

For the true beginner that knows very little about cars, I often recommend the automotive section of HowStuffWorks.com is a great start. You can find well written articles about just about everything there, with accompanying diagrams/animations. If you already know the basics about cars, sites like wikipedia can fill in a few details rather well.

On the other hand, if you are simply lost in the jargon & TLA's (Three Letter Acronyms) ... there isn't much that I know of that can help. Just keep reading, ask questions, and continue to learn. We were all new here once and it took a while to figure out what some of the stuff meant.

I think it's time to update the Z/28 section :lol:

Post up how you ran last night at the strip, ask for tips on how to get the best time when you tackle the autocross track, and find out how to keep your car running well on track days at your local road course. .

Perhaps it's time to split the description here of the "Road Course/Track and Autocross" subforum away from the original all-inclusive "Dragstrip and Launch Techniques".
