I enjoy this message board but its there is a little too much going on with having 15+ diffrent topic boards....maybe its time to trim the fat a little and make it a little more user friendly -?

thats a good idea bonez

Ok, so what would you eliminate?
Let's throw out the Lincoln, Hobart, and definitely Harbor Freight boards since I am mainly a Miller guy. But maybe some people won't share my views on that...
Let's throw out the electrical section since I have everything wired up and have an electrician and electrical engineer friend to answer any future questions of mine. But again, perhaps others might not be so hasty since they may need some help...
Let's eliminate the general welding questions since I never find much help in that forum because I'm usually beyond that point. Again, maybe others won't see it my way...
Hmmm... Maybe it works the way it is?? :)

see thats what I hate about these message boards, someone has somthing contstructive to say then somebody gets his panties in a knot and starts bitchin...... its a good board but it could be a lot better.
I was just making a point for the moderators to consider some changes

Works. Read New Posts to keep up, topic boards for research. Works.

I was thinking that mechanics park, woodworking and the test quizes could go and if someone had a question it could be posted under off topic....
its only a suggestion (hence why I posted it here)

i agree bonez

Nothing knotted here. That is why I had the smiley face - showing that I was making light of things. Just trying to show that maybe others have different interests and that this board does a good job of serving those different interests.
I'd say that body work is different from other welding, so I'd vote to keep it. It doesn't seem to be that heavily trafficked, which I find unfortunate. It is something that I'm getting into more and plan to ask more questions on. I would agree that the mechanical questions could be better served on other vehicle-specific boards, though.
I've never ventured into the welding quizzes, but maybe it is of some use to the newer people that are still working on the terminology and such.
I'll definitely agree that woodworking is stretching things a bit, though. There only appear to be three posts in it from the beginning and there are much better boards for woodworking.
If you had clarified which ones you were seeking to trim, it may have made for better discussion from the start. Just coming in and saying trim things down seemed a bit one-sided, though.

We do take all suggestions into consideration, but as PAToyota said, what do you eliminate?...we have almost 6,000 members at the site now and we do like to try to accomodate everyone, but at the same time, we do not want to overdo it.
With that in mind, we feel that the forums that are up and running right now are there so that everyone can discuss pretty much any and all aspects of the industry and their views and/or questions can be discussed in the appropriate areas. That way, the people who go into specific sections or forums on the site, are participating, discussing and potentially answering questions in areas they desire to do so.
Again, we do appreciate the fact that people take the time to make their suggestions on improving the site and we always want to find ways to keep the site running smoothly and effectively.
Mr. Donovan, Thank You.:) I enjoy using this site and it has been helpful to me on a number of occasions. Thanks to you and to anyone else who helps to provide this forum.:waving:

TEK, thank you and all of the members that make WeldingWeb.com the site that it is.

I second Tek's sentiments. This a great site covering all aspects of welding.
My 2 cents *Dont change a thing*

I just found this web site while surfing and its pretty darn good in my opinion. I like it just the way it is set-up except the Hobart section but that a personal thing.:p
