In response to customer requests, we have added several new forums!
Alternative Fuels and Propulsion News
This forum is a catch all for news on Diesel, E85, Hybrid, Fuel Cell, etc discussion. If it takes off, we will further break the forum up in to subcategories.
Union and Labor Relations News
With UAW negotiations upcoming, I felt that this was an important enough subject to have it's own forum. If it is slow, we will fold it back into General Industry News.
Automotive Hobbies Discussion
This is a place to discuss automotive related hobbies...such as diecasts, models, and memorabilia collecting.
The Snake Pit
This is the forum I was most weary of adding. Basically, this forum is for auto industry discussion without our normal "Pro GM" moderation. Meaning, if you like GM, and get your efeelings hurt easy by Toyota fanboys, this is not the forum for you. Also, when a news topic gets out of hand (a.k.a. any Tundra news article), the thread will be copied to the snake pit. The news thread will be left open, and heavily moderated for trolling. The version copied to the snake pit will be left open for discussion and banter of which brand is better, etc. Don't bother reporting threads because someone is saying Toyota is great...because the mods will not help.
That being said, all forum rules on language and posting decorum still apply. If you are obviously trolling, failing to make intelligent conversation, or not presenting yourself as a mature individual, we will take action. If you break the rules in the snake pit, you will be warned once. Break them again, and you will lose access to the forum for good. I am asking you guys to please help make this work...I think it could be a good thing for the site. If it turns into a wasteland of irrelevant posts, we will remove it.
