Some thought would be appreciated. Another RV forum powered by your organization (starts with a J, ends with and O) has 28 recent threads as opposed to 16 on this forum.

Now if the choice your company is making is to maximize eyes on ads by giving us less opportunity to participate or help users, I'd like to respectfully request you think harder about it. This is a very popular forum in part due to the format you provide but in a greater part due to the principles and practices brought by the Forum Moderators and super users.

Like I said, it is a very popular forum. More lines won't cost you all extra, however asking all 6 or 700 users to do two extra clicks instead or providing a little less landscape to the advertisers says that bottom line is trumping customer service. That is a concept that has led to the demise of a lot of companies.

OK - It appears threads with new posts no longer show up boldfaced.
That is less convenient.

Try to "refresh" or reboot as this does not appear to be an issue for me using Explorer 11 and Windows 7.

No joy in IE or Chrome (both current and patched) under IE7 (also current).

**sigh**... Oh well.

No love for the Forest River Class C lines in the right hand header?

Don't I earn reward points for every post? Can I cash in those frequent flier reward points for a logo up there?

I was wondering the same. Setting it to pick 5 random brands would be pretty easy. Then all would get a chance at visibility.

BC I sent a message asking about advertising for all brands instead of just 5. Also asked if it was a random generator so ALL brands would get exposure. I'm not seeing the brands have changed on any of my logins...so there goes that hope.

As long as we don't get an XLR logo up there I'm fine with whatever.

I say we go by Factory Rep participation. The top 5 factory posters get say in the matter

The brands that were randomly selected from some of the more popular brands (based on forum member post counts). I'm going to talk to our web designer to see if we can make some type of rotating graphic that would show more of the brands and possibly make the brands clickable to the brands website. I can't promise we can make that happen. We need to do some due diligence but hopefully if everything works out, it's something we can do.

The new home page looks great; I really like the simple logo with the trees in it. And, I too would like my FR brand, Surveyor, up there as well if at all possible. Great job!

Sort of goes hand in hand with what we did with our Forester Class C logo.

Incorporated the trees into the logo.

Hey...I was just pleased to see Rockwood was the top line featured brand (that must mean we are the most frequent posters?)

Now if we could only get a factory rep in here

I had a chance to go check out your website, LearnToRV.com. Lots of great info there! I'm a Dad with kids sort of the same age (3 & 5) so some of the non-RV stuff was very relevant like ripping DVDs. It's the first thing I do when we buy a DVD because the kids watch them on tablets and it's the best way to store them before they get scratched. I'll let you know if we need any help!

The trees are a nice touch. The only issue for us is the logo will be so small "up there" that those little details won't show up. Regardless, that's a very nice touch for the big logos on the rigs.

It would be great if we could get reps from all the various companies. Maybe with time they will see what a great outreach tool participation here is. It's good to keep the communication channels open and forums are a great way to do that!

Keep the feedback coming!
