walkinshaw.net to get it's own Fourms!!

A few people have said to me lately that they think that it's time that walkinshaw.net had it's own forums.

As there seems to be more and more posts happening, I think it's the right time.

So in the next few weeks, we will have our own forums.

As it will be costing money to buy the forum software, and also host it, I will need to charge a yearly fee for members, but with this membership, I will try to get as many sponsors Australia wide to give discounts and benefits to members.

I already have a car tracking company who has come on board, and will give a 5% discount to all walkinshaw.net members for alarms/immobilizers and tracking etc. And also a local WA Bob Jane TMarts has come on board also, happy to give trade pricing to members.

You will also have access to parts of the forum, that non-members don't have. (Much like Calaisturbo has now). Basically the only parts of the forum that non paying members will be able to access is a for sale/wanted section and basic technical section. The forums will be focused towards actual paying members, as this generally stops the d*ckhead factor getting out of control.

I am thinking that the initial signup fee will be $50 for the 1st year, which includes a walkinshaw.net shirt which I will be getting made up. I would like to get a nice quality polo shirt made.

Then each year on, renewal will be $20.

So I would like to get peoples feedback on this. Reply here with your thoughts, and suggestions etc. Also is the costing something you would be prepared to pay?

Cheers guys,
Craig

Hahaha of course Alex, but I'd hardly call your car a crappy replica!!!

It won't be just for walkinshaw owners. I am happy for anyone to join up.

I would also like to just point out that this is has nothing to do with calaisturbo at all, or the way these forums have been run. I have felt for a while that the walkinshaw part of the forums has been growing and now is at the point of being able to have it's own forums.

A number of other people have said that to me also, and it may be holding it back, as it confuses alot of other people.

I would ideally like to run it very similar to the way calaisturbo has been run.

I just wanted to stress those points!

Hhaha No, I'm thinking either white or silver for the colours. Silver possibly due to the walky being panorama silver....

Will do.

Once I have the software up and running. Should be a few weeks max. In the process of getting some shirt designs made up, and will go from there.

Once we have a few designs, I'll post a thread up, and we will get a vote going of which one people like the most.

Have a new banner made. Some people would have seen it at Motorvation in WA earlier this year, and this will be the main one for the new site.

Here it is:



Big thanks for Stevie Dee (72 of 150) for designing it.

If anyone has ideas for sponsors etc, let me know. Happy for them to advertise etc, and they will get their own area to post specials etc

Cheers,
Craig

Brian, Did I see you driving down Beaufort st in Inglewood a few weeks ago one morning? If so your car looks MINT!

What happened to you on that walky cruise? I tried to ring your phone, but no answer??

Cheers,
Craig

Im not fussed on how many members we get. It's not a money making scheme. People will join up if they want.

Walkinshaw.net has been on CT for years now, and the time has come for it to spead it's wings so to speak and get it's own forums. A number of people have mentioned to me that it's probably holding it back by not having it's own forums.
