It would be awesome if someone took alot of the threads of how-to's and link and turned them into organized articles.

Sort it by the generations of the different Grand-Am's...

So if someone with a gen 3 Grand Am wants to see what how-to articles are out there they don't have to look through a million gen 4 articles to find the one or two gen 3 articles.

My point may have been lost through my rambling. But a couple examples of what I mean would be like:
http://volvospeed.com/maintenance.shtml
http://volvospeed.com/performance.shtml
or

P.S. I personally like the Volvospeed site more than the benz site (I also liked my volvo more than my benz). But the benz site sorts out the different how-to's by chassis and engine series numbers...

This site is mainly for gen 4 ga's 99-up

Isn't that the story for pretty much everything to do with Grand Ams?

It still would help Gen-4 people to have it organized.

is this going to be for people that are too lazy to search.

And how much will it cost??

Def. not enough pre-99s over here to make anything like that worth establishing.

This style has worked pretty damn well for many years, but thanks for trying

The may one's the Indiana one right? I'm down if we can get a decent convoy going..make the trip a little more fun, and lessen the chance of getting lost maybe.

You goin?

Whatever. Its an idea.

It would be helpful.

Just because something has worked for years doesn't mean that it can't get better.

And just because someone CAN find something by the search feature. It would be nice to see the different write-ups for different mods and such side by side.

Take it as you want, and write off my suggestion because I'm a new member. :iconfused

I would suggest editing our your last name in that first post..with that, your first name and your location..well, not smart..

Why the hell would I do that? Are you going to come visit me?

And how much will it cost??

It wouldn't cost anything per say. Someone who knew something about PHP could do it in a matter of a few hours. ****, you could just make it a wiki page and have it up in a matter of an hour.

It takes a few keystrokes for people to use that little information to find out everything about you..but hey, if you don't mind your personal info being out there then please, carry on.

I was just trying to do you a favor. :amraam:

Simple really. As mentioned www.gaownersclub.com is a great source for all year GA's. Many members here are members there- HOWEVER, as 95% of the members here own 99+ GA's it would be a waste of time to include it here, when MAYBE 1 or 2 people would look at it.

It's a feasible idea just completely unneccesary for this forum.

Welcome? lol

Jrs2000

It is an effective idea, but it isn't feasible.

I'll check out the other forum.

P.S.
No. I'm not afraid someone is going to come visit me because I was trying to make the website a better place for everyone.

Umm...now you've lost me.

Anyways, I don't think that's what AJ was referring to. Your prerogative though to put your personal info out in public.

If you feel like writing something up, or creating a page, I'm sure the admin staff will take a look at it.

Jrs2000

I don't see why I'd care if someone knew my name...

Regardless, feasible is the likleliness that the proposed policy will be put into action and effectiveness is how well the policy will ameliorate the problem...

I was working on a Grand Am project that looks like it has fallen through. So I won't be staying very long but if you are interested you can google "MediaWiki" which looks as though it should be easily installed on the server.

If I come back in the future I'll get 'er done.

From the words of comedian Carlos Mencia.... "De du dee...."

Let me see if I can put this into extremely EASY and SIMPLE terms for you.

Your full name, location, etc translates into your personal information. A large amount of people in this world use this little amount of information to find your social security number (that nine digit thing you have). With just your name, location, and SS#, people can get bank information, make credit cards in your name and charge you thus. Thus making them... well... YOU. It's called IDENTITY THEFT, maybe you've heard of it? Or have you lived under a rock for a majority of your life?

Guys, is that explained well enough?
