    How do you feel about the frontpage?

    Want to get feedback on our frontpages. How do you guys feel about the frequency and quality of updates?

    To be honest, I look at other sites and their front pages are boring to me. Just generic. I mean, wow, pictures of the M5 or M3 in some different color. Two shades of blue compared (exciting!). The same spyhoto circulating every website. Etc., etc., etc.

    I feel like I could do better on more unique pieces I write myself. To be honest from the moment I wake up to the moment I go to bed I'm writing and looking for content. In the middle of that I'm moderating, posting, moving posts, answering pm's, emails, on twitter, etc. It gets to be a bit draining but I think I could do better. I just wish more people knew of the sites.

    So what do you think I could do better? Do you want more updates? Do you want a different design?

    Or maybe I'm being too critical and it's fine the way it is?

    You tell me. I want to really make this as professional looking and interesting as possible. It absolutely blows my mind M5board has more users for example yet they haven't even updated their damn front page since February.

    It's all good, it's crap free. Maybe a new look won't be bad though.

    I like it the way it is. Everything is nice and simple. I think you are being a little to critical. The site has grown quite a bit since I've joined. I don't need to see 5-6 different reports on a new color for a car. You do provide nice updates with actual quality. You're not afraid to upset people by saying the truth or hide facts because a vendor is paying you.

    I come to this forum to read about the actual car/tune/upgrade discussions that go on, not the "what's the best exhaust?" or "Hey I plastidipped my rims" crap at other places.

    One thing people would like to see, I think is a IPhone/Android app for the sites, but I know thats another beast in itself.

    I would like to see the Buy/Sell section grow but that comes with more users and I'm still waiting on a "How to" section.

    How to / DIY is a great idea obviously but there is a certain way I want to do it.

    Not enough yet, sadly. I don't get how other sites with far $#@!tier quality and less updates are bigger.

    Exactly, some forums just get bigger and get more posts by such threads.

    What are you referring to exactly? How much traffic?

    I see some articles that catch my eye that I don't see on the front page here, I love this site and I'm not trying to take shots at you but I think some more updates would be cool. If you need help finding/writing articles I would be more than glad to give a hand.

    Well it depends on how far I want to take it. I have 7 things I want to do but my plans are BIG.

    I would say to get the basics out of the way and get all the sites ranking highly (like number 1 on Google) for all important keywords along with the basic custom features (Ipad/Iphone app) along with merchandise (T-shirts, stickers, clothing) would be around $25k. That should easily quadruple traffic and revenue by the end of the year.

    I mean can spell it out exactly piece by piece but I don't want the competition to see my ideas. InternetBrands (who owns Mbworld, 6speed, etc.) actually has the resources and programmers to do exactly what I have in mind. So I don't want them to steal it. I have a couple ideas that will change the game but those will require much more money. The payoff though is potentially huge.

    I have gotten investment offers in the past from several people but never taken them. Now I'm to the point where I'm ready to go to the next level and simply make this the best forum in the business.

    Well I don't want to copy other front pages as I want ours to be unique but please tell me some examples.

    I currently aim for 5 articles a day. How many would you want or think would be the number?

    5 seems good enough, it just doesn't appeal to me as much as the other websites I look at, I can PM you those websites if you're interested. But I'm aware that my interests may not be the same as the other people on the forums. I think you're doing a great job, it would be great to see more aftermarket news such as BMS releasing their JB chip for the F30 335i for example. Otherwise this is my favorite forum, I try to contribute as much as I can but I'm still way too young and I use these sites to broaden my knowledge, so maybe one day when I have the funding and the knowledge I can attribute to this site as much as I mean to.

    I definitely put in a ton of aftermarket news.

    Go ahead, PM me.
