    "Global Chevrolet News"

    One of two things need to happen...

    1) Rename "Global Chevrolet News" to "Global Chevrolet Car News"

    or

    2) Start putting Chevy truck news into that subforum, create a separate "GMC news" subforum, and when a piece of news is about both, select one subforum for the actual thread and post a thread-link in the other so there is only one discussion thread about those news.

    Under the current system, there's just way too many of this:

    See example

    I have to say I can understand those guys being all mixed up. It's called "Chevrolet News", so one would expect any Chevrolet News you might be looking for to be in there.

    Either split the news by brand, or by model... but please, not a mix of both. It makes no sense. For example, where would one expect to find news re: the GMT900 Escalade? In "Global Cadillac News"? Or in "Truck News" just like all of its siblings? What about the HHR? "Chevrolet News", or "Truck News"?

    Just my opinion, but I would not voice it if I didn't care.

    While renaming the sections, you guys should also try and fix this mistake... doesn't look very professional. Just FYI.

    Good point.

    p.s. I pointed out the mistake in the Caddy one a while ago and was ignored. https://www.gminsidenews.com/forums/f26/mistake-76174/

    I plan to do some streamlining to the forums in the next month or so. Ironically I was just thinking about this earlier today. Ha.

    Hey NSAP, will the Pontiac and Saturn areas go and be moved into GM heritage? What is the plan?

    We will see if nsap takes me more seriously than he takes you.


    While at it, there's a space before the comma that has no business there, and you might want to fix that as well:

    The staff and I have not really discussed it. I'm thinking their respective news threads will go bye-bye (especially Pontiac as there is going to be next to no news out of the brand now that it's death is basically by the end of this year).

    The discussion forums...ehh...I suspect we will keep them around for now.

    I don't know what the plan is, but I do know that "Saturn News: All Of The News Of Saturn's Revitalization!" sounds a bit silly now.

    Hope that's going to be fixed faster than the "DaimlerChrysler Discussion" subforum after the Cerberus takeover... otherwise we'll still have a forum for news about Saturn's revitalisation a couple years after the brand's been dropped.

    P.S. I know you guys are busy... again, I'm basically pointing this out because I care about the site. Is it really that hard to fix?

    Sheesh...you guys are demanding.

    Fixed the few nit-picks mentioned. Like I said, we want to reorganize the forums, but just aren't ready yet.
