Default Questions

I know i am new to this forum but am no stranger to modifying my trucks and motorcycles. There is a lot of info here that is great to read but does anybody else get tired of seeing the same questions about intake and exhaust asked daily? Im on a forum for custom honda motorcycles and the big rule there is to do a search before you ask your question. The other thing is your first post should never be a question, it's in bad form to join and ask a question before you set up ur profile. I'm not used to noobs not getting harassed a little for asking the same question over and over and basically no pics=no truck/bike. Just my 2 cents, i guess im just not used to this type of forum. This is not a stab in anyway just wasn't sure if i was the only one.

I too have belonged to many forums for trucks, motorcycles and snowmobiles. I find this forum to be much more laid back than most. I understand everything you are saying, but I for one find the friendliness and understanding attitude here to be very refreshing. I enjoy this site, and love seeing newbies of all kinds even if they are not very forum savvy. That being said...welcome and maybe some will learn from your post. Take care..Kevin

The only thing I get tired of is unqualified, untrained and inexperienced people handing out questionable answers and advice. Thankfully that doesn't happen much anymore.

I will agree to a point. I love these forums, I haven't been around for too long either, and i have been on many forums before as well, weather bmw, ranger, fishing, and others, and these forumZ are the best out there!!

We are a VERY laid back "family" and are always willing to help out others, and give our opinions if it will help at all. I think a good thing about some people always asking questions that have been asked before, is that, it keeps the forums going a bit. Cause if everyone searched the forums and then no posted, would make this a very a boring forum, and i've been there, and done that!! I can't wait to get some spare money when im not scrapping to get by, so that I can support this awesome site!!

GO Z LIFE FORUMZ, AND DODGE RAMS!!!!!

If people weren't asking about intakes and exhausts, they wouldn't have anything to ask about.
While the chevy crowd is talking about everything from motor swaps to body drops, most Ram owners are afraid to put on even an air intake because it might void the warranty.
Not saying that's bad per se, it's just very different if you're used to other forums.

This forum has to be one of the friendliest I've been to in regards to vehicles. Here are two examples. The CBRForum (I ride and race Honda CBRs) has an extensive wealth of information, but the moderators and members in general always shove their opinions down your throat. Bitch please, if I want to do a wheelie I'll do it regardless of whether you like it or not. And AudiWorld (I own two Audis) has arguably the best technical knowledge base of late model Audis on the Internet, unfortunately the members there act as if they are Gods of the road. Please, I make more money than a doctor so stop acting like you're better than me 'cause your Audi makes more horsepower than mine. This forum has some fantastic individuals. CajunDodge, BlueJet, Remerson are just a few names but everyone in general is all pretty cool. In the short time I've been here, I've never really had a problem with anyone and we all work to together and have a whole lot of fun here. I'd like to go out and actually meet some of the members one day but I'm too shy and too fat to leave the house.

Well put Incognito (and thanks for the compliment ) and I agree. I have been on other forums myself and I have to say, hands down, the Z forums is exactly what I was looking for when I joined all the others, just never found it until I landed here. Some are just downright nasty in that they showcase what happens to society itself on a larger scale when people are left to their own devices, it boils down to a bunch of arguing and bickering, kinda like some things on tv, just not worth my time. This place however, is just a great group of down to earth real people centered around one really cool common thread, pun intended, we all love our RAM trucks!!!

More to the original point of this thread, it's difficult, with so many members and so much information to avoid altogether the redundancy of posts on the same topics. However, on the one hand, it always makes for interesting reading if nothing else, but on the other, at least on the Z forums, there is a lot more positive interaction amongst the members than anywhere else and there's never a dull moment 'cause it's such a lively place to be!!!

I gotta agree with you guys, I was on several truck forums looking for advice for my mods, and as a newbie, I could never ask a questions before getting shouted down 2 seconds later for not searching first. As I was new to forums, I had no clue, but on here, I was able to ask all the questions I wanted to and most always got a RESPECTFUL answer, even if it was impractical for what I wanted to do in particular, but I was always give recomendations, not opinions. After i became part of the member relations team, I realized that was what really made this site great, was how there were people who were dedicated to the Z and they gave their time willingly to help others.

If you really want to feel more at home, GunMetal57, I can spam and berate you for making stupid posts about your 'uselessly slow girly truck' ... but I would prefer not to

I love this forum, it has a very laid back tone. We all love our vehicles and try to help out our fellow members on here. I agree with Roadrunner, it feels like I'm associating with a close group of friends when I'm on here.
