  1. No problem guys. I'm not making demands here, just stating a point of view. Nothing's going to change anything anyway, so no one needs to be worried that the sky is going to fall on their heads. Monty, you made unnecessary and irrelevant personal attacks on me and your tone was arrogant and rude, that was my beef. It's really pathetic that you feel the need to hide behind a forum and act all macho.
  2. Kinda throwing the baby out with the bath water though, isn't it? It also prevents anyone with an interest in Renaults from discovering this site. No it doesn't. The site is visible, but the contents of its pages are not. The home page makes it quite clear what the site is about. You must register to view content created and posted by members. Common practise for forums. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk And this is what filters out all but the hardcore. Casual users/viewers can't be bothered registering and click out and head over to 197.net where these restrictions are not in place.
  3. And continue to do so... The arrogance and hysteria in your posts amaze me.

  5. I haven't been abrasive, and I haven't received abrasive responses. One person acted like a douche, and I let him know about it. Everything else has been a civil discussion with differing opinions. Ok, granted, maybe my opinion vs. just about everyone else's! Now, seeing as lots of people feel very strongly about keeping their member's ride private, despite the fact that I disagree with this for all the reasons outlined above, I am not deluded enough to demand it should be changed just so it can be the way I want it and screw everybody else. Ideally, this site should provide freedom and choice for members to control their own content, so if some members, in this case the majority, strongly disagree with going public, then no way should that be imposed on anyone. The only way to do it (going public) fairly would be to give members a choice, so they can go public if they want, or keep things as they are now. Please do not put words in my mouth: I am NOT "expecting everyone to back down", I am definitely not "offended", and I'm not about to "take my bat and ball and leave". Again, my only interest here is to share my passion for RS cars with the world. My frustration, when I have a friend buying a car and I'm trying to turn them on to a Renault, is that I can't tell them, hey, jump on Ozrenaultsport, and check out all the cool stuff on there and see how much people enjoy these cars. Having to register just to see some pretty basic threads and sections kills it for most people, they can't be bothered. My frustration is that at most there's me and six other Renault anoraks in the whole country looking at a particular thread at any given time. I wish there was more involvement, more people reading from all around the world; making more of the forum public might be one way to lure people in.
  6. The most sensible post on this topic so far! Wouldn't this provide the best of both worlds and keep everyone happy? And lead in the long-term to more interest/involvement/traffic on this site?
  7. Thanks. Real friendly. You miss my point. OzRS puts rules in place for a reason. It isn't a democracy and revolutions are pointless. You clicked "I agree" when registering. Just because you don't read them it isn't an excuse to go on a crusade. Whatever, dude. I'm entitled to express an opinion in a thread entitled 'Website Feedback'. You don't own this site so you have no right to get all Stalin on me and tell me what I can and can't say. I appreciate that I appear to be in a minority of one on the issue of opening up the site to the public, and that's cool, if that's not what the majority of users and administrators on here want then so be it, I never demanded it should change just because I said so. But I don't appreciate your rude attitude.
  8. My mates very expensively and tastefully modified S2000 was stolen from his brothers garage. It was his pride and joy. He had spent a lot of money and a lot of time modifying it and 'sharing' it with the world via his build thread. The car was never found, most likely stolen by someone browsing the forum and parted out online. With the amount of money you've spent on your car mate, I think it's good that your build thread is kept private Fair enough, I can understand that as a pretty big concern! Though there's nothing stopping any potential criminal from registering and browsing to their heart's content...
  9. Great idea! A website that practically no one else looks at because it's all restricted. It's all mine! Or maybe I'll let six other people look at it but only if they register. But wait, I already have that here... Thanks for the sarcasm dude. I think you misunderstood. portal meant create your own website/blog, and gave a suggestion for the URL (portal, correct me if I'm wrong). The error message you currently receive when clicking the above link only means that it hasn't likely been registered (in theory). Ah, in that case I apologise. Anyhow, looks like this cause is a dead end...
  10. They're just curious, they don't want to join some club! Jesus imagine if every time you Googled something you had to register on each individual website. Annoying,
  11. surprise! Because it's a pain and an unnecessary step. If I send someone a link, or I tell them, hey, you should check out the Ozrenaultsport site, they should be able to just click into it like any ordinary website and start browsing. As soon as you have to register and enter username/passwords etc no casual user can be bothered doing it. Don't get me wrong, I love this forum and everything it has to offer, I just wish didn't have to be all Freemason about sharing and access. They're just curious, they don't want to join some club! Jesus imagine if every time you Googled something you had to register for every individual website you visited? Annoying, no? Why dont they join themselves? They obviously have some interest in the cars if you're showing them links and we'd be happy to have them regardless of what car they own/drive.. They too could provide insight, like in the audio or car care threads..!
