Well, I've vowed not to spam other sites to try and get more traffic here like I did for DSMtuners
but hey, I just might have to resort to that!
No, really though, what drew most people to DSMtuners is that we were offering unique features that weren't offered anywhere else on the web, by any other car enthusiast site around. People have used our ideas to catch up. We're working on a few things that will help EVOtuners be the same way - it's just a little tougher to do these days as more and more webmasters flood the web with cookie-cutter-style forums sites that have little else to offer in the way of content. We have to battle for attention among a crowd of other sites who went out and bought a license for vbulletin and are trying to establish their own community. Take a look at how much work we've put into our Parts Catalog alone and that should tell you how dedicated we are to building a top notch EVO community. Anyone can setup a forums site. We're working on doing a bit more than that.
If nothing else, we can always be sure that our community will be friendly and will not allow flaming and arguments between members or vendors. That alone should help set us apart from what's out there now.
I know what you're saying Eric, and believe me, I'm working on it. You guys just keep working on bringing in people you know or people you meet.
