Bama-

You've been a member for a long time and are a regular visitor/poster. You always greet new people, and always comment when it's someone's birthday. With that being said, you know as well as I do the changes that have happened. There is a reason why people like Scotty, Anna, and Eric all left. Yes, the come back to visit from time to time, but if you notice, most of the original members are trickling down.

Here's what I'd like to see:

1) More information about CAMARO'S!! I really could care less that Dodge is recalling vehicles or that Honda is recalling the CR-V and CR-Z. This is a Camaro site and yet, we can't get information posted about new options, new colors, how Chevrolet is taking things off of the ZL1 and incorporating them in the SS and the 1LE. Where is all that info?!?! H*ll, MC can post a thread about VW and what tailored cars US buyers want. Who gives a sh*t, this is a Camaro site!!!

2) The homepage should have more on it than just MOTM. When I visit the home page, there should breaking news about the Camaro with links that I can click to obtain that information. Camaro5 has it, Camaro5150 has it, why can't Modern Camaro get it? The last bit of information put on the homepage was dated back in May, but yet we have MOTM's all the way back to February. Who really gives a sh*t about MOTM that happened 5 or 6 months ago.

3) An APP for both Iphone users and Droid users. Other sites have it, so I have to ask again, why can't Modern Camaro get it.

4) Don't get me started about MOTM and it's rules. Why you have to own a 5th Gen Camaro to be elgible is beyond me. How about someone that is useful, helps other's members out, and OWN's A Camaro.....??? The MOTM has become a joke.

5) How about a countdown or possibly links on the home page to major Camaro events? There are several National Camaro events that are Camaro only, but yet, you don't see or hear about ANY of them on the home page. Why???

Those are just a few examples of how to make this forum more informative. Yes, the people on here are relaxed, easy to get along with, but for crying out loud, I had to go to Camaro5 just to learn about the new DUSK Limited Edition.

Here is the message i sent to autoguide about . I hope they will get back with me.


I would like to know who is in charge of www.moderncamaro.com site. We have several members not very happy with how our site is being run. We dont get any updates of camaro stuff ( ie. the Dusk Camaro). I would like to be in contact with them to start making some changes we feel if we are paying for this site we ought to have some input on what goes into our site. For example we dont need 4-5 months of our MOTM (member of the month) on the home page. So please have someone contact me in this matter. I have been a member of moderncamaro for almost 4 years and most members look to me for answers. Thank you for your time and attention into this matter..... Robert (bamaproshop)

Unfortunately...I don't think that person exists...because if they do...just send them my way...I've got an earful for them...lol

Like I said in Bucky's thread...I contacted Helena early this year about several things but mostly about how they are handling the sponsors. In the past, our sponsors have been a great source for information, products and input. Let's face it...many of them are experts with far more knowledge and experience than most of us have. It really bothers me that they would jack up the prices for sponsorship...yet offer less than was being offered when Tim ran the site. How the hell can you charge more for less and expect to keep sponsors? So I pointed a few things out like the fact that there is NO VENDOR LIST in the nav bar at the top of the homepage...like every other car site on the internet has and when you click on the sponsor list up in the upper left hand corner of the homepage in the Nav Box you get a pathetically outdated list of vendors...most of which aren't even sponsors anymore...not to mention that only 1 of the 44 links to their websites actually work. I also mentioned incorporating more levels of sponsorship to accommodate vendors with fewer products or services to sell.

Here was her response to me...

I thought WTH? There isn't even a vendor list on the Nav bar.

Then a week later I got this response...

But not one thing has changed since then and that was sent to me on Feb. 16th.

The sponsor issue is just one of the many things that I brought up to Helena in my pm so you see I have been trying to facilitate some changes around here. But more recently...it has become my opinion that as long as no one with any control over this site gives a crap...nothings gonna change around here.

And it still remains a fact that there isn't one single place on this site where you can find a complete list of current sponsors..so how in the world are we supposed to support these guys? Personally...I think the way we're handling sponsorships is an embarrassment!
