    Im still happy with the way it is , Just dont get here as much as before .
    When and if Mazda release newer versions of MPS, then obviously there will be a greater interest from peeps. The knowledge base here is huge and the learing curve for this platform when initially developing was extremely steep hence (the growth and interest) .
    Mazda with no newer releases since 2012 has impacted both growth and interest IMO .
    Again personally game add on,s dont do it for me , but im 60 .
    Im not familiar with Facebook ,but it would seem as though from posts that it has not been totally successful (splinter groups and fractures) of recent .
    Re vising and tweeking the format of OZMPS is needed and welcomed . Thanks Admin.
    Way to many mods, way too much money spent,way way too much time spent = the wifes no 1 Enemy.
    But i,m Smiling

    Just some random thoughts:

    I stilll like coming here to see what people have done to their cars, and to live in hope that someone might announce they are from adelaide lol. I am a member in pretty much all the mps related fb groups because I love seeing what people are up to, however still prefer ozmps and msf due to how easy it is to find info, plus I don't give a sh** about interstate meet ups and asinine questions which can flood fb. Lol

    On that note, I think an offiial fb page could work. Evolution oz have a pretty good set up where they will only post for sale items if they have been listed on the forum first, and so the post only links to the forum. No forum post and the fb post gets removed.

    I was thinking an official fb page could just be used to spruik the forum, and maybe pre empt the bloody repetitive questions that come up that have already been answered many many times (that those who frequent the forum are well aware of) for example admin could post up "wondering what intake to get for your car? Look at these threads" and link them to appropriate stickys here. I would make it clear that the page is to be mainly for proper car stuff and for the off topic stuff they should go to the other fb groups, just to avoid the splinter that happened before when people who had been on the scene for 5 minutes thought they knew it all..

    Anyway, whatever you do I will keep popping in to mod my car vicariously through other people until I can afford my next part lol
    AP V3 (Rayd tuned) / CP-E CAI / CP-E TIP / JBR Trilogy / CS Front Strut Brace / JBR SSP / JBR Shift Knob / JBR shifter bushings / Eibach Pro-Kit / Bilstein B8's / SURE Juggernaught / SURE Dreadnaught / Whiteline RSB / Toyo Proxes T1R 235/40/18 / Evo X BBS rims / Turbosmart Dual Port BOV / CP-E DP / CP-E TMIC / Autotech internals / Superpro bushings

    Future mods:
    BT, DM OCC, EGR delete, Braided clutch/brake lines, Hawk HPS 5.0 pads, DBA T3 rotors....

    Still don't see why we can't have another official fb page. Or that instead of getting onto fb for immediate response, people who cared about the forum, people should consider posting everything here first???

    That's pretty much the model that I had in mind as well. The only way to stop those asinine posts is to have trusted contributors operating under the OZMPS name.

    Another model that I have seen work well is for people to post all their submissions pending approval from an admin (This model applies to certain political groups that I am on) If it's shit then they reject it but if it encourages actual discussion then it passes. That needs some pretty active administration tho so I don't think it would be ideal.

    being new to the MPS scene i have no idea what happened with Facey books and split and that but going onto the pages on fb its interesting. Facey is a good ground to get people interested and its easy to like or join anything you want i like the community on this page seems to be very nice and well minded not like MSF where you ask a question and get shot down.

    cant think of anything else yet as im only new but i guess i have a different perspective on this than some of the older people here
