New way of communicating. A lot of people use facebook now. Some people still hang around here. AE86fightclub was made to weed out the "noobs" from the AE86 community. It is just another click and if your not part of it, then your not cool lol......right. Anyways there are still people posting on here. Jondee has added a lot of references to make this site more organized and structured. I personally enjoy helping new ae86 owners/anyone out.

The important thing for people to remember is that these forums are still here. There is nothing stopping it from being as gold as it was back in the day. If people want it to be a community again, they just have to take some time to post on here. I hope they will think of that. ;)

Here is another take on the situation.... there is so much "How to do the 4AC>>>4AG
swap, SR5>>>GTS upgrade, 4AG>>>20V swap etc etc" information on the interwebz these
days, that there is little need to go on a forum and ask questions. The club has thousands
of members who have joined but never made a post, so for sure there are a lot of people
who just browse the pages to research their projects, and find the answers they need.

These days the most active forums as far as posting is concerned, are the buy, sell and
swap listings. Because of the specialist nature of the club4AG, putting a FOR SALE post
up here will make sure you hit your target market. The forums might not be as "chatty"
as they once were, but they are still the best place to come for advice from old school
members who actually know what they are talking about :ugeek: The forum provides the venue,
but it is the members who create the life and vibrancy by being active... posting, asking
or answering questions. Like all clubs... the more you put in, the more you get out :)

Cheers... jondee86

Totally read my mind.

Literally just posted a response similar to this in another thread.

"Bumping this thread because I'm a n00bie here, and I'm bored at work.

Speaking for the "younger" crowd, I know for me personally, for a long time I never really needed to make an account just for the simple fact that if I had any questions, a few google searches would lead me to answers here on forums. Not just ae86 related, but all forums in general. I've literally browsed this forum for YEARS and have found most, if not all answers to my questions already.

That, plus the fact that younger dudes like me never really had forums growing up. Everyone (on all forums) talks about how forums are dead and aren't active like they used to be (early - mid 2000s), but I was barely 10 years old. Now that we're older, we missed the wave of activity and spend most time on FB just because thats where all the activity is at.

BUT ....

... Facebook is annoying. Dudes are lazy and dumb. and the only thing anyone cares about on Facebook is how many likes/shares they get.

Therefore I'm making an attempt to be more involved on forums where people actually talk about their cars. I'm sure I'm not the only "young" guy who feels that way either."
