I used to feel the same way, like wtf are these people's problems

But then once I tried to sell some things, I quickly realized the reason. I might be not-lazy enough to make 2 or 3 separate threads and add all the pictures, etc. But I AM too lazy to monitor each different thread, respond to posts and basically have people asking the same question in 3 different areas.

That's when having a MAIN thread that will be updated with the latest info and having 1 thread people can post in makes sense.

Just make them as blanks to avoid the infringement stuff that caused the other company to go under.
lol, that's actually not a bad idea. I can see people giving in to their inner black person and getting those, and passing them off as ok because there is no chrome, and nothing actually spins, just kinda sits stationary.

Good point, however I don't think it is entirely practical.

For example, if my main FS thread is here, but I have a secondary thread on Bimmerforums, nothing is stopping the members over there from posting in that thread if they aren't registered on e46fanatics so I would still have to monitor every thread.

Oh, for me it was the same forum but different sections (classifieds, california, etc.)

Did you actually make that?

It's oh so great.

Yeah. I'm not 100% pleased with it. With some tweaking I have confidence that picture can properly express my feelings.


Also, briangle is in good company

Yeah, stance doesn't get strength from intelligence, just from its vast numbers of unconfident people that follow trends. They are like the hipsters of the automotive world.

Stanceworks is the automotive version of down syndrome.
