I like the new Super Cab sub forum.
Could we do an online trucks for sale thread in there as well?
I come across quite a few locally.

Yes, I was thinking the same thing.

I would keep the "Members Trucks for Sale" and "Parts for Sale" under the main forum but have separate "Online Trucks For Sale" threads in each of the three forums (regular cab, super cab and crew cab.)

I also noticed that the 73-79 Forum at Fordification.com is and has been down for quite a while. Maybe we can attract some of their users onto here.

Also, a "welcome" or "introduction" thread would be a nice addition to our site.

I seem to be on a kick with OFCC the last few hours so I thought I'd drop a note here about the Classifieds. Ever since moving to this latest format the classifieds have been dead. I just replied to the VIN decode request that was posted yesterday, but I had to do so by posting my own "Ad."

The classified section could use a complete revamping including allowing folks to reply.

I see you are talking about the "Free Classifieds" tab at the top of the page and not the one in the forums. I agree. That page has been dead since the upgrade. I actually don't like that classifieds page because there is no way for me to moderate, edit or delete anything from that page, (for example, the for sale ad that was posted in 2014 and is still there). I would be in favor of eliminating that page all together and just use the classifieds section in the forum itself. You don't have to be a member to view the ads and if a non-member wants to reply, they can simply join the OFCC forum for free, of course!
