    Thinking about starting a new forum category

    One category that will be heavily moderated for those that can't handle any criticism. You can post you build threads in there and not get their feelings hurt. No swearing, no negative remarks, no suggestions (could be taken as criticism), no opinions (could be taken as criticism). What should we name this category?

    fuck... no swaring?

    the heavily modded part might be a good idea, i actually like when people put in there input, it deffinatly saved alot of us from the big wing cars when we were 16. suggestions are always a plus imo, keeps you thinking after you think a car is done.

    I agree with Brian.

    Dont think that is needed really, is it? If people wouldn't ruin 99% of threads with their BS or mods would step in a bit people probably wouldnt have an issue. Opinions and TECHNICAL arguements are never a bad thing IMO. Its when a handful of cock suckers jump in every thread and start taking personal stabs at people that isues are created and people complain.

    Maybe just start a "build threads" forum and have it be technical only and hope people can respect that, if not, then have the mods step in. I like opinions on builds when they are tech based and not just "your cars gay", "why waste money on a honda", "your swapping something other than an l67 or LSx, you must be poor and/or retarded" etc...

    yea I was being sarcastic. but I did think about having a build thread section where all comments are allowed but after a week or so, the moderators can delete all posts besides the original poster. keeping it clean

    I cleaned out my own build thread several times, but it was getting incredibly long. Id just cut out anything not really necessary.
