Suggestion for the Mods?

What about a sticky about "actual" delivered cars.
Suggestion:
Name of owner (optional)
Trim/Options
Date Delivered
Dealership/City
and finally a pic of car and said owner

...but here's the kicker....

NO REPLIES!!!!! NO congratulations, NO wow, can't wait till mine comes in, NO how does it handle?, NO when did you order it?, NO what's your VIN?, none of that. It makes the thread way too long. So someone can just find out where they are coming in without having to bring a lunch and read thru 400 replies. By the way, I really do appreciate this forum and the time you guys put into it. Very informative.
Just an idea or maybe see what others have to say?
Thanks.

So I'm taking it no one likes my idea? Sorry about the thread bashing but I think everyone would like to look at a thread just to see when and where our cars are showing up. Come on guys/gals. Let's get this done!

I like your idea........I really don't care to see 400 threads from everyone or 5 pages of comments trying to get any detailed information. Don't mean to be mean, but after 1 of each color is posted, they're more or less the same anyway. Group shots are ok though when people get together.

I think it sounds like a great idea. I think it would be fun just to see a huge thread of happy Camaro owners with their cars. It's what we've all been waiting for!

Yea, that list shows 4/2 but was actually pulled 4/9 and I could have made changes up to 4/14. Still sticking with my original color combo though. Very difficult cause there are too many good ones to choose from. I've had a few yellow cars or that would have probably been my second choice.

2SS/RS
IOM with black interior
MN6
Sunroof
Black Stripes (dealer)
Engine Cover (dealer)

Right, but the whole point is to see when/where the cars are showing up. I know eventually there going to be everywhere but I think it would give a better ETA for other soon to be owners? Maybe? The pic is just proof of delivery.....not that anyone would lie, of course.

I agree... otherwise, we will see a new thread every single time one gets delivered... similar to how we already see a new thread every time an order is pulled/built/etc...

It was already suggested by one of the Mods... Can't remember who. But a dedicated thread for picture of you, your car with dealership in background.

Thanks for the compliments.

The only problem with the idea, is that we can stop people from posting. and as the thread gets longer new members won't know the rules and so on... Interesting idea... Maybe we can come up with a compromise....

How about the new owners e-mail that info & a pic to a moderator and the mod can enter it into a locked thread?
That way, nobody can post in there and muck up the thread.

Or maybe we just go ahead and post away on an open thread... then paste the ones that meet criteria into a locked Sticky Thread.

Just a thought if it's not too much work for the already overworked mods...

I think a locked thread that only mods can post in would be the best bet. I know its more work for them, but its the only way to keep the thread from becoming pages and pages long.

How about we try and figure out a way to use the Garage Tool? Maybe we can set up a special section where you can upload pics in a "new camaro" garage...

Not to sound unwilling to help, but we are pretty busy when we get on here. So, the idea of posting on behalf of everyone is just as work intensive as deleting the Non delivery posts...

Keep discussing.

I think this could work. Since a Camaro5 member is already currently at the dealership signing papers and taking delivery of his car, I'll create a sticky thread in the General Discussions forum. Owners as they take delivery can feel free to add to the thread with their delivery and car info. As there'll undoubtedly be off-topic posts in the thread, I (or another mod) will periodically comb through the thread and delete any non-delivery info threads.

I think out of all the less than optimal options, this is the easiest way for us admins and mods. Apologies in advance for deleting your off-topic posts in the thread
