Some ideas for improving the forum

  • I find that more most popular forums, they are usually a place for the users to obtain useful information about their cars... Usually this information is supplied by a more senior member who has extensive experience in certain areas of expertise, sometimes from a guest merchant who is willing to share their expertise in exchange for trust and custom...


    One example is road race motorsports in the clubsx4 forum, project S in the swiftclub sg forum... Over here we have merchants, but they are not really contributing, just post some basic information...


    It would be nice if you can attract or arrange for more of these contributing forum members (for example, even champion motors) to participate in the forum and raise it to greater heights...


    Finally, I have attempted to organise a forum meet up with some of the members but without success, wish the admin could help to push for something like that...

  • Hi Calvinus,

    thanks for your feedback.

    As we've been offline for almost 4 years, we're only just starting to gain momentum with getting our old users back.

    Unfortunately, it's a chicken and egg thing for most sponsors. They only bother to post on forums with large userbase and if it presents an acceptable ROI for their business. As we're just starting, we're highly dependent on users such as yourself to contribute and help the forum to grow.

    I've seen many members who actively contribute to the forum, namely yourself, 1.5b, swift21, etc and this are small stepping steps to help us become the forum that we once were, and i thank you greatly for it.

    I would love to spend more time to grow the website but as an IT administrator (my full time job), it is not something that i have been able to tackle in recent weeks.

    Similarly for the meetup, i understand that we're lacking in members whom are keen to meetup due to our small size currently. If the members here stay on and actively help to promote the forum, i am very sure we will be able to grow big very quickly and organise frequent meetups.

    Also, large workshops would also then be more inclined to post here and help our members out.

    Lastly, i want to thank you for hanging in there, and also all other members for helping SCSG to grow. I built this site out of passion, and is solely funded by me alone. I don't charge the sponsors nor the members as this is a passion for me and i hope to be able to provide a nice place for Suzuki enthusiasts to gather.

    Thanks for your feedback once again, let's work together to get there eventually.

    P.S. I have sent you a PM, please check.

  • Hi Admin,


    Thanks for responding to this... I am enjoying my car and hope to make some contributions to this forum (what I can)...


    BTW, I didn't get your PM, maybe you want to send it again?


    Best regards
