Default New Website Features Wish List

Just tossing this idea out there...

What would you guys like to see added to this website, and how would that make you visit more often?

Greetings...

I posted this on here a while ago, but we haven't received any public replies, so here's a "bump."

It seems that production numbers -- at least recent ones -- are of interest. And for 2005, we got those to you the day they were completed by Team Saleen.

Our forums have been getting more activity, and we sure are glad to see that. What most of you may not realize is that our goal is to have a "family safe" environment here... if that's important to you, please keep that in mind, as you won't find that elsewhere.

We've also been trying harder to keep you in the loop on events by posting announcements here... unless you've given SOEC your e-mail address when you signed-up, you may be in the group of snail-mail recipients of announcements and you'll probably find out about events much later (if at all) than if we had your e-mail.

We strive to keep confidentiality preserved, but we really need your e-mail to communicate more effectively.

So again, what features that we currently do not have keep you coming back to this website?

Please PM me or reply here.

Hi
well as a new member to the site, I also love to go to car shows and talk about our rides. lets face it anyone here who purchased a saleen are extremely a rare breed. being that we love to be different than the average mustang owner or truck owner and are willing to spend alot of money to be different. I live in new york city and would love to meet up with some of my fellow saleen peeps...

HOW ABOUT AN ANNIVERSARY OR BIRTHDATE AREA FOR EITHER WHEN WE PURCHASED OUR SALEENS OR JOINED THE SEOC. IT COULD BE A LINK AT THE TOP AND EACH MEMBER'S NAME WOULD APPEAR ON THE CALENDER DAY DURING THE MONTH.....SINCE THE CALENDAR IS NOT BEING USED MUCH ANYWAYS FOR ANYTHING ELSE.

I like the idea of a birthday relating to the date of purchase. Something different. Who wants to be reminded every year they are a little older? I would rather be reminded of the day I bought my Saleen!

All good ideas.

Though we can't provide color breakdowns, the other ones we will work on -- keep the ideas coming!

Default Possibly a Featured Saleen of the Week...?

May be a little interest from having a featured Saleen with pictures and details about the owner might add interest, but it might involve a lot of changes to the site.

Another thing that might spark for traffic would be increasing pictures and videos on the site ?????

One of the past internal conversions dealt with how can the SOEC Website and Saleen Alley publication function together. It becomes what content goes where.

The current method says vehicle features, show info and such is newsletter material. Most of the historic stuff hits The Website.

The forum is set to change in a few months and the website will be altered after the magazine archives are done. Maybe a minor alteration or maybe major… not sure yet.

Most everything now… is falling into “time.” The big hurtle is the magazines, once those are done… different things will be hitting the site… even some original material.

As a new Saleen owner (still awaiting delivery), I would like to see an area to post a list of Saleen certified technicians in our respective living areas. Or an area to "weed" out the dealerships that are less than qualified to properly perform repairs.

EASY, do the short list, as many of them are not qualified and have lost most of their techs that were. If you find one stay with em and share as much of the info you know and learn as they are usually in the same boat.

Default Houston area

Mac Haik Ford (I-10 @ Gessner) took care of some warranty work. Replaced with new parts, no mystery 'road test' miles and didn't oversell extras.

Russell & Smith Ford (610 Loop South) is listed as a Saleen shop, but i don't have first-hand experience yet.

Freeway Ford (59/SW Frwy @ Hillcroft) is the official sponsor of the official MCA affiliate club.

PSI Motorsports in Webster (SE of Hou.) is reputed as being a good Saleen installer/tuner. Again, nothing first hand yet.

===================================

Brenspeed in Indiana is an authorized Saleen Speedlab; so is JDM Engineering in NJ. I've had a positive experience first-hand with Brenspeed. Nothing to-date with JDM, but I've read many satisfied remarks.

Anyone in the Austin area that needs service work of the non-Saleen variety, look up Covert Ford in Hutto, TX. They replaced my Shaker stereo yesterday, took extra care and did an absolutely GREAT job.

I honestly felt like they wanted to help instead of feeling like a pain in the a$$ to them. It's nice to know that there are still dealerships I can go to where I'm not worrying every minute that some wrench jock will screw something up while "fixing" the initial problem.

Now all I need to do is get them to become a Saleen dealer .

- I would like to see the forums more user-friendly to mobile devices. The website itself is user-friendly, just not the forums.

- Integration and migration of events to Google calendar. Or, someone show me how to do it

- Less poop!

1: The current forum was activated around 2008 using vB. As you can figure, mobile was not much of a thing during the mid-2000s when vB was the forum standard.

The update issue is, vB 4 and 5 have less that perfect user reviews and some consider the later versions clunky and bloated. Yes, they are mobile, but in some implementations this is one of the few positives the later vB versions have.

The next consideration is cost. An update in our forum package could be a few hundred dollars to a grand depending how far out we go. Then we weigh whether a new package will increase traffic / user involvement over the duration or we just spending money to spend money.

We realize in the current landscape, the SOEC webforums are more of a "knowledge base" now than a social community. People access the vintage tech help and vehicle information from years past.

It is still a heavily accessed and visited property.


2: I don't know much or anything about Google calendars.


3: The world has less.
